We run through a bunch of stuff this week and chat a bit with a listener who lives in East Troy because Chad wouldn’t rest easy if we didn’t talk about the EBR situation. We also learn Todd’s hidden weakness.

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.

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So… it’s a little out of date.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

Ep 132: Staring at Our Fingers All Day

So for this week, we have a guest that tells us about his company’s gloves FROM. THE. FUTURE. Also, I think we may mention EBR once or twice.

“Butter?”

Jason Peat is the Vice President of Operations/Business Development for BearTek. What’s BearTek? They’ve come up with a glove technology that literally sticks the controls for your phone or your GoPro at your fingers. Go to the website and look at it. It looks badass. Jason comes on to tell us all about the technology and the gloves they’re selling now. I will literally never have to listen to the Sena lady ever again… I cannot fully explain how badly I am geeking out over these things.

Also, the man has a voice like audio butter.

Ep 130: Todd’s Got A Legion of Fans

This show was actually recorded a while back so given the news this week about EBR closing up shop, a lot of the discussion is going to seem really weird…

Ep 128: Phoning It In Again

2 Apr

 

So, this show is either a day early or a week late. Your call. This is also a bit of a weird one. It got bumped out of the order because of guests and timing. Also, Todd has just come back from Mexico and was excited to talk about that except my house was currently plague-house so we didn’t want to expose family to that. He Skyped in, figuring we’d just interview our guest and do some gags… Except our guest ended up being down sick, too.

So we winged it…

Hey, you. Kid. I hear you like shows? This week our guest is a specialist in the motorcycle touring industry.

“And Hello. I’ll be your guide today.”

Liberally stolen from the website:

The creators of Leod Escapes have ridden a lot of miles, both on organized tours and by themselves. So we know what works and where most organized tours fall short. On a Leod Escapes tour you won’t be riding the same route as a tourist bus, your route is chosen with great motorcycling in mind. Leod Escapes guides don’t make commissions taking you to over priced tourist shops or unauthentic attractions. Where you stay for the night is not just a matter of logistics to us, it’s part of your vacation experience and a choice we don’t make lightly. Leod Escapes doesn’t book hotels based on how much we make or on how cheap they are. We book hotels for you that are a touch luxurious but still a good value. Whenever possible we seek out inns that reflect the character of the region rather than dull corporate hotels. We are the only tour company that has tours for both locals and international riders. We feel bringing locals and visitors together, adds to the combined adventure for all. On a Leod escapes tour you’re kept informed, you know where you are going, whom you’re riding with and what to do should something go wrong. While riding with us you don’t have to stay in an obedient line behind the tour guide or push yourself beyond your abilities to keep up, you are encouraged to ride at your own pace. You are not required to use a rental bike; you can ride your own motorcycle (providing it’s in good working order). Leod Escapes creates tours that are more than just rides but combines roads, inns, restaurants, sights and the occasional activity to deliver you a unique experience
