Ep 130: Todd’s Got A Legion of Fans

17 Apr

 

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…

Ep 129: Touring At Speed

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

Ep 125: I Got A Chart

Here we go with a show! This week, we’re talking with Kristin Casey (http://www.kristincaseyracing.com), motorcycle racer and chart nerd.

“According to my chart, I’m faster than you.”

Liberally stolen from her website:

I have always loved speed, adrenaline and motorcycles. In 2010 I experienced my first ride on a road course with my Suzuki sv650. Within a few months I earned my racing license and finished my first race weekend. One month later I was invited to race Superbike Peru, being the first woman to race in their country and placed 4th in both races amongst men. Shortly after I was invited to race Phillip Island Australia, then offered a full time position in south Florida with Prieto Performance Racing. Life was great and I was more than happy. April 2011 I was involved in a crash from a mechanical failure which threatened amputation of my right leg. I made a full recovery but was forced to move home and eventually sell my race bike to offset medical expenses. I always knew I couldn’t end on an injury, I had to get back to racing. My father was my #1 fan but had never seen me race in person. May 2013 he was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and less than a year to live. I decided right there, no more waiting, it’s now or never. I took out a loan, purchased a bike and all other necessities for racing. I got back on the grid and worked my way up the east coast starting with Homestead Miami in February 2014. By the time I was able to compete locally due to weather it was too late. My father passed in May 2014. I am now more determined than ever with my racing. 

I have physically and mentally become stronger than ever and feel truly alive when on the race track. My mother now comes to races and helps out in the pits. We are planning for success with dad watching over us we plan to travel together and compete a full season of racing and many more to come.

Kristin comes on to tell us about her love of racing, her love of charting, and tries to explain to Chuck and Todd what all the classes into motoracing are about and why. Since we got the benefit of listening to her go on the Pace first, we were able to think up a bunch of stuff to ask her… though Chuck still wants to know if the race suit will make his ass look big.
