Podcast 365: The Best Toy In The World

This week on our motorcycle podcast we are joined by Mark Dinges of California Creations, the company that brought the Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle back. He talks about what it takes to bring a toy back to market after 40 years, what changes were made, and why it may save his company during this pandemic. Now is the perfect time to get into wrenching, and for those that are reluctant to take their bike apart, we suggest getting a cheap project bike to learn on. That's why we play a round of Craigslist Porn Pic Covid project bike edition. Listen to find out who found the best bike. Lastly we read some listener emails and answer some questions about too much wind noise. With Liza, Bagel, Miss Emma, Naked Jim, Award Winning Mike and Mark Dinges. https://evelknieveltoys.com/#purchase Go to www.motorcyclesandmisfits.com to find the links to our Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, Patreon and more.

Podcast 363: Talking Superbikes with Champion Racer Wes Cooley

This week on our motorcycle podcast we talk with AMA Hall of Fame racer Wes Cooley. Wes got an early start in racing, and was there for the early days of the AMA Superbike racing series. He raced for Pops Yoshimura, first on a Kawasaki, but then moving to the Suzuki GS1000S that won him the championship in '79 and '80. He had a 15 year career, racing against legends like Freddie Spencer, Kevin Lawson, Reg Pridmore and more. But it was a crash in '85 that ultimately ended his career. He shares stories from his illustrious career, and kept us mesmerized the whole time. He is a legend himself, and possibly the nicest person we've ever interviewed. With Liza, Bagel, Nak, Naked Jim and Miss Emma. http://www.motorcyclemuseum.org/halloffame/detail.aspx?RacerID=315 Go to www.motorcyclesandmisfits.com to find the links to our Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, Patreon and more.

Podcast 361: Gary Davis; The Coolest Interview We've Ever Done

What do Evel Knievel, Captain America, Kenny Roberts and the Terminator have in common? In 2018 Emma, Michael and myself scored an interview with Gary Davis, the coolest guy you’ve probably never heard of. Gary was inducted into the AMA hall of fame for his career as a racer, daredevil and stuntman. In 1969 he raced alongside greats like Kenny Roberts and Gary Scott. In 1972 he beat Evil Knievel’s record by jumping 21 cars. But it wasn’t an ordinary jump. He did it with a a partner, both at the same time and passing each other in mid air only feet apart. He then became a stuntman in the movies and TV, doing all of Evel’s stunts in Viva Knievel and countless other spots. Next he became a stunt coordinator and 2nd Unit director on films like Terminator 2, Predator 2, Starsky and Hutch, and Torque. And in 2018 he was inducted into the AMA Hall of Fame. He is still in the business today, as well as being a collector, a bike builder and all around cool guy. So take a listen and enjoy...

Podcast 360: Should We Ride During the Pandemic?

This week on our motorcycle podcast we are on lockdown day #6 here in California, but that didn't stop us from recording a show. We come to you from the safety of our homes with some topics that we find relevant today. First up, should we be riding? The orders during this quarantine call for no unnecessary trips by car or motorcycle. But it also tells us to practice safe social distancing when outdoors exercising. Hmmm. So we discuss the fine points of this debate. Next up we get a very special Emma's History Hole, this one about military, police and emergency motorcycles. And lastly we share some emails and announcements. With Liza, Bagel, Nak, Miss Emma and Naked Jim. With Liza, Nak, Bagel, Miss Emma, Tom, Isaac and Naked Jim.

Podcast 359: Rally For Rangers and Corona Bike Week

This week on our motorcycle podcast, things are different. We are in the early stages of the Covid 19 pandemic, and we are yet to really comprehend how this is going to affect our lives. Events are being shut down left and right, and schools are closing. But in the middle of this uncertainty you can expect that we will continue to bring you stories from the two wheeled perspective, and this is something that can't be taken away from us. So it was especially awesome that our guest, Tom Medema of Rally for Rangers, still made the long ride to join us in studio and share his amazing story. This group is providing motorcycles to park rangers around the world to help them do their jobs protecting the land, animals and historical sites. But wait, it gets even better. Anyone can sign up and participate in this. In fact, you get to ride the bike on an epic adventure and then at the end, present your bike to one of these rangers. Really awesome what they are doing. https://rallyforrangers.or...
