Ep 140: The One With Jen’s Gate

So, this week, we’re talking to a sidecar racing team. We’re also talking to friend of the show Jen about… an issue. She never did get back to us with a picture…

I have no idea if this is them.

Our guest this week are Russ Miller and Fabio Petruccelli, a racing team of the Sidecars Racers Association. They’re going to come on and tell us all about what it’s like to go really fast on a track on a sidecar rig. Here’s a couple more pics they passed on to us.

Russ also sent along some pics of sidecar racers from the Isle of Man:

And since we’re on the subject of Cancer…

10 Aug

And since we’re on the subject of cancer and fighting it, Ken Blasor sent us a heads-up for a motorcycle charity ride against prostate cancer (which struck me as oddly ironic)! Here’s his page as well!

http://www.gentlemansride.com/rider/azuwere

For more information and getting in on the ride yourself, check:

http://www.gentlemansride.com/

In brief (from their page):

The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is a celebration of the art of being dapper and the style of classic custom motorcycles. What does that mean, you ask?

Think: Monocles, jaunty trimmed moustaches, silk vests, crisp shirts and tailored suits.

Ride: Café Racers, Bobbers, Classics, Flat Trackers, Scramblers and quirky, undefinable two-wheeled machines.

Do: Bring your finest manners, neatest beards and a sense of fun and adventure.

Pay: Nothing to ride (entry is free); but please consider helping our charities by getting your friends and family to sponsor your involvement

Help Micheal and the Lazarex Foundation!

An old old friend of mine is doing a charity run for Cancer. Both of my parents had lung cancer. I lost my Pop to it directly. Complications caused by it contributed to there being nothing the doctors could do for my Mom’s congestive heart failure that led to her passing.

My friend beat cancer and he’s running to raise money for it. Please check it out.

Ep 139: The One With A Cop

7 Aug

Here’s one we’ve been really excited to bring you for awhile now. Recently, a couple of motorcycle officers from Salt Lake City Police took part in a national motocop competition and one of them placed second overall. He’s in studio as our guest to talk about the competition and being a motorcycle officer. This episode will have an upcoming second part where we have some video to followup the interview! We also have all our usual nonsense…

“I’m so lost right now.”

Our in-studio guest this evening is Officer Jaron Harker of the Salt Lake Police Department. He took second place overall out of eighty-five entrants in a national skills competition. You can see the story here. Below is the video of the L.R. memorial run that we talk about during the show where he finishes his run with a basketball shoot and a bitchin moonwalk.

Ep 133: We Don’t Shut Up

15 May

We got a long show this week with a pretty good interview. That’s why it took longer to get this one ready for you guys. We’re going to be talking to one of the guys behind the EBR documentary that just came out on the heels of EBR going into receivership, “The Ragged Edge.” If you haven’t watched it yet, I’d really recommend going over to Vimeo and giving it a rental. It’s a pretty fascinating story.

Classfieds:

One of these guys may be our guest, but it’s not who you think.

Our guest this week is Joseph Sousa, one of the producers behind the new documentary, “The Ragged Edge: An American Comeback Story.”

From the site:

“The Ragged Edge” is a documentary about survival on and off the racetrack; about riding the edge between victory and oblivion. Its focus is Erik Buell Racing (EBR), the only American sport bike company. EBR is now racing for its survival. This documentary combines the power, excitement, and tension of motorcycle racing from the point of view of teams in the pits with the equally powerful stories of a company trying to make it through a financial maelstrom and the personal survival stories of working families in America’s heartland.

So… it’s a little out of date. As part of all the weirdness regarding EBR’s sudden drop into receivership was this movie coming out like a day or so later! We have Joseph on to give us a behind-the-scenes look into the multi-year project and what Erik’s like at dinner. We talk about how they took the news about EBR and the effect that’s had on the film.

I can’t stress enough that this is a documentary worth watching. Head over to Vimeo and check it out for sale/rent: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/theraggededge
