This episode starts out with me reading the new mission statement for my podcast, and then I look back over the podcast since its inception by reading the list of past episode titles, and more importantly commenting on and giving my thoughts about each episode, what was significant about them, what they meant to me, and any updates I have on the topics they covered. If you have not listened to the back catalog of episodes this is a great way for you to find out which ones you missed that you might be interested in. Then you can queue them up to listen to in your favorite podcast app. Since the Thanksgiving holiday is approaching I thought it would also be appropriate to give thanks and talk about all of the people that I am thankful for regarding the sport of motorcycling that you and I love so much. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I enjoyed recording it. Happy Thanksgiving!!!

This episode is an interview with Tom Walker, also known as the MotoCoach, who is a certified Motorcycle Safety Foundation RiderCoach, a track day coach and enthusiast, and creator of his Corner College rider skills development training program. We talk about a recent accident he had on the track, his injuries and how his recovery is going, and the effectiveness of his gear in this high-speed crash. We also start the conversation to cover the various things that I need to do to get myself and my bike ready to start doing track days in the not too distant future.
