David McGrath - AMA Pro Road Racing's former Senior Director of Competition joins us tonight for a revealing episode!
Daytona Beach, FL (November 05, 2014) - David McGrath has a broad background in the sport of motorcycle road racing in America. Prior to coming on board with AMA Pro Racing as the road race director and later as the Senior Director of Competition, McGrath accomplished much. He was a rider/racer for a number of years before hanging up his leathers in 1999 and then used his experience to help others. He spent time at Vance and Hines as director of R & D, worked with Dunlop in tire development and also served eight years with American Honda in R & D development as well as Crew Chief.
Coming on board at AMA Pro in 2010 just two weeks before the Daytona 200 was a big undertaking that ultimately led to him becoming the Senior Director of Competition.
Now that AMA Pro Racing no longer sanctions road racing, McGrath, along with several other key staff, has been released from his position from the road racing side.
McGrath will discuss the past, present and future of road racing in America from his unique vantage point. We look at the various decisions made along the way that were both good and bad for the sport that he loves.

The 2014 Motorcycle Cannonball is in the record books! Buzz Kanter of American Iron Magazine will join us to with the the story of their adventures. The team definitely had their challenges in this years event. It is a story of perserverence and fortitude to say the least. Buzz will inform us of the successes and struggles. In true writers fashion we get a very descriptive and thorough review.
Norm Nelson, rider for Cannonball Team 23 had a brilliant ride and finished the epic 4000 mile journey from Daytona Beach to Tacoma, Washington with a perfect score. They will be credited with second place out of a field of 100 riders but that definitely does not tell the entire story. Norm will give us his perspective on the thrill of near victory and the agony of defeat. The 1926 BMW needed every bit of its 12 horsepower considering the big headwinds out West and the climb over the Rocky Mountains. Fate definitely played a role in the outcome for Team 23. Hear all about it as Norm shares his feelings and philosophies on this years event!
We are delighted to bring you this in depth look at the outcomes and results for these two teams who joined us on the eve of the ride to discuss their hopes and plans for victory. We are going inside the numbers to get the human side with both of these guests now that the run is completed!
Valerie Thompson is a 7 time World Landspeed Record holder with a top speed in excess of 217 miles per hour! Her story of how she went from the All Harley Drags to a multi-time landspeed record motorcycle title holder is compelling. Tonight she joins us on Talking Motorcycles with Barry Boone!
Owner and operator of her own land speed record team is a challenge to say the least and this girl is on the move. She has been featured in movies, numerous national magazine articles have been written about her and most recently was featured in the movie "Why We Ride".
We are excited to present Valerie as our guest on the show and look forward to learning more about this dynamic and exciting woman!

The heavy hitters of flat track join us tonight on Talking Motorcycles!
The 2014 AMA Pro Grand National Championship has arrived at it's final date for the season. The Pomona Flat Track Finals is at hand and the chase for the championship comes down to three riders. Two of the heavy hitters in Grand National competition are on the show tonight!
Jared Mees has a 13 point lead coming into the final round. His Rogers Racing HD has performed beautifully all season long and Jared is riding at the top of his game. He will join us in this episode to discuss his strategy and plan to capture the title.
Bryan Smith is in a slight deficit coming into the final round. But for an untimely oil leak on his Crosley Radio Villa Esparza Kawasaki at Calistoga he may certainly have the point lead for this weekend. Missing the Dash for Cash at Calistoga also took a bite out of his championship plans. We discuss his thoughts on the Pomona track, his Kawasaki as well as the competition he faces in this final round of competition.
Gene Romeo, like so many others, followed the trail from Ascot to the Grand National Championship and the Motorcycle Hall of Fame. Fittingly chosen as the Grand Marshal for this weekends Flat Track Finals at Pomona, we discuss his history in the sport and his take on the race this weekend.
Thank you for joining us on this ultimate flat track show for 2014 featuring the heavy hitters of flat track past and present.

Why We Ride is the story of who we are. Individuals with a desire to dream, discover and explore. From a kids dream come true to a retirees desire to return to freedom. From a family riding together on the sand dunes to hundreds of choppers carving through the canyons-the desire is the same. It's about the passion of the riders and the soul of their machines.
Why We Ride is the #1 Motorcycle Film in America today! Created out of the pure passion that drives all of our two wheeled adventures and connects the common thread of passion that runs through the fabric of all of us as motorcyclists!
James is a veteran of two Fortune 500 financial groups before entering the entertaining industry to assist the successful independent distribution of the acclaimed documentary One Six Right: The Romance of Flying.

In this episode of Talking Motorcycles we go LIVE with some of the top competitors of this years event which departs from Daytona Beach this Friday night and arrives in Tacoma, Washngton September 21st. This epic ride is done on motorcycles built prior to 1937. Riders will be required to navigate well, ride and truly have an understanding of their classic machines.
Patrick Simmons, lead singer and guitar for the Doobie Brothers!
Norm Nelson is one of the best. He once rode his 1958 Harley-Davidson Sportster from Jacksonville, Florida to Alaska. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of that ride he did it again riding from St. Augustine, Florida to Alaska at 70 years old. He has won the vintage race at Datyona International Speedway 6 times on a Norton Manx. When the Historic Motorcycle Society chose Norm to ride in the event last year he nearly won it. In 2014, Norm and Team 23 are set to do it again hoping for a win. Norm will join us on this episode to discuss the ride just two days before they depart!
Buzz Kanter, Publisher/Editor in Chief of American Iron Magazine will be competing in the Motorcycle Cannoball for the third time. This will be my third ride across the US on a motorcycle much older than I am. Rode a 1915 Harley twin on the first Motorcycle Cannonball in 2010, a 1929 Harley JDH on the second one in 2012, and will be riding a 1936 VLH this time. Interesting mixture of excitement, anxiety and anticipation right now.
Buzz Kanter and Norm Nelson typify the spirit of the Motorcycle Cannonball. Both are excellent motorcyclists who will tell their stories as to why they ride in this grueling yet rewarding event that covers 4000 miles of American roads from coast to coast.

In this episode of Talking Motorcycles with Barry Boone we go inside SOZO Motorsports. Mark Adams, co-founder and CEO of SOZO Global Inc, joins us to discuss this 100% natural and nutricious beverage and the business opportunity it presents. This product has truly enhanced my motorcycle touring experience by focusing the mind and the body. For most motorcyclists, myself included, there are times in a riding day that your energy and focus slips. I consider this a very dangerous time in a touring day. SOZO Ignite takes care of that problem. Mark will be on to tell us the how and the why of this amazing product. We will also delve into the idea that you can earn tremendous income by being a SOZO distributor and enhance your financial life. Mark will tell us how it all works.

In addition to being the season championship race it is also the final American Superbike race under the AMA Pro banner. The two entities have enjoyed a long standing relationship and we will discuss the past and the future as well.
Last week on Talking Motorcycles we discussed the 2014 Motorcycle Cannonball just one day prior to it kicking off at the Daytona Beach Resort. 97 riders on their pre1937 vintage machines began their 4,000 mile journeys to Tacoma, Washington last Friday morning. Buzz Kanter of American Iron Magazine will be calling in to provide an update on their efforts in this years event. Our guests on that show were Buzz Kanter, Norm Nelson and Patrick Simmons of The Doobie Brothers. Buzz will update us!
