In this episode I have a great discussion with Scott Rybarik. Scott and I talk about lots of topics related to motorcycles and motorcycling, including community, running clubs, managing risk and performance, how people learn new skills, taking kids racing, the lessons of motorcycling that relate to other parts of life, modern motorcycle electronics and tires and are they too good, and much, much more.

In this episode I have an awesome chat with motorcyclist Andrew Goodman about his new book "Shiny Side Up - From First Ride to Fast Rider." Andrew started riding motorcycles in his early twenties. Finding a more effective way to commute through rush hour London traffic was the excuse, but in learning to ride he fulfilled a lifelong goal. So, join us as Andrew and I talk about all things motorcycle!

This episode gives me the chance to answer an email from a listener who is looking to buy his first motorcycle and is looking for advice on how much to spend on his motorcycle gear. I take this opportunity to answer his question by discussing all the things I have learned recently about high end gear that is suitable for track riding, as I start preparing myself to start riding on the track in 2020. I cover the fact that I am facing the same dilemma that he is…how much do I spend? I discuss what I am learning about helmets, boots and track suits, and the approach I am taking to move ahead and decide what to buy. I also mention that I have decided that before I start getting very involved in doing track days, I first want to improve my riding skills, and learn how to ride properly on the track, by taking the type of training offered by the California Superbike School and Total Control Training.
