In this episode I have a cool chat with Cat MacLeod from Leod Motorcycle Escapes, a motorcycle touring company that specializes in tours for accomplished, performance minded riders that want to experience getting the most out of their riding skills both on the twisty public roads in the mountains as well as on MotoGP race tracks. Cat and I talk about the tours that he offers, the challenges he is facing due to COVID-19, some funny stories related to the tours he has conducted in the past, as well as his own experiences as a track day rider, particularly on his new Yamaha R1 which has been a big help in moving him up to riding in the A Group. We also talk about my first track day a couple weeks ago, which is a great segue into how a motorcycle rider interested in a Leod Escape can prepare themselves if they are not yet riding at that level.

In this episode I have a great chat with Darren Waite, who not only is a fellow motorcyclist, but used to club race motorcycles in Australia, and has worked in the motorsports industry for 25 years. Darren is responsible for bringing the racing, track riding, motocross, adventure and street riding products of Italian based Forma Boots to the Australian and the US markets. We talk in depth about the Forma Ice Pro boots that I recently purchased for street and track riding, the technology behind them, why they are used by MotoGP racer Danilo Petrucci, and how Forma’s technology and approach to boot design, development and manufacturing is applied to the products they supply for all disciplines of motorcycle riding.

This episode features an awesome discussion with Shahin Alvandi, also known as the "Shah of Braaap." Among many other interests and endeavors in life, Shahin is also the co-host on the Brap Talk! motorcycle podcast. We talk all things motorcycles, including the need for us to end motorcycle "brand bigotry", motorcycle racing, trackdays, Ducatis and our philosophies on motorcycling and how it relates to getting along with other people and just helping to make the world a better place for everyone.
