by Steve on February 13, 2014


Welcome to Episode 3!!

Thank you all for listening and reading the shown notes here on the blog.

This episode I explain that random download that you received a few days prior to the release of this episode. My apologies for that.

Cold Remains in the Midwest
We begin by talking about the cold weather that has kept us here in the Midwest confined to four wheel vehicles. Negative wind chills and lots of snow!!

Our recall this week is from Triumph and does involve a couple adventure models of the brand. Click here to read the recall on the NHTSA website.

2013 Motorcycle Sales
Next I discuss the motorcycle sales figures for 2013, mostly as they pertain to the adventure motorcycle segment. Hear about a prediction I made in 2008 along with some friends that proved to be way off base.

Gear Review
I give my thoughts on my riding pants, Tourmaster Venture Air. I also ask you for your suggestions on buying proper adventure / dual sport specific riding gear. These are great pants but not for off road in my opinion.

Breaking News
We have been successful in securing a couple of the interviews I promised you all. Over the next three to four weeks, working around their schedules, I will be interviewing two gentlemen surely to make you want to listen in. I do not know who will be on first. The deciding factor will be their schedules. One is a world traveler and author. You all know him as Sam Manicom! The other will be an excellent source for those of you, like me, that are new to the sport. Shawn Thomas, instructor for RawHyde Adventures will join us.

I invite you to send me questions that you would like me to ask either of these gentlemen during our interview. Feel free to email me your questions at or you can leave a voicemail via your computer by clicking on the “Send Voicemail” button on the right side of the screen you are looking at. This does require a microphone on your computer to be used. Get them in fast so I have them prior to recording.

If you would like more information on what either man does feel free to check out the website for each by clicking their name below.
