    THE ROAD HAWGS RADIO NETWORK - CLASSIC CHROME / COMING HOME FOR THE  110th. STURGIS TO MILWAUKEE


    Special Guests: Patrick Simmons, Musician, Collector, Vintage Bike Enthusias Cris Sommer Simmons, Author, Motor Maid, Vintage Bike Enthusiast


    Many folks find it hard to take the time to really hit the road on their motorcycles. Work schedules and family obligations often get in the way. But what do you do if you find yourself touring with one of the biggest rock and roll bands in the world throughout most of the year, or writing award-winning books, and you need a motorcycle fix? This week, we are joined by friends of the program, Cannonball finishers, and serious motorcycle junkies Pat and Cris Simmons. When Pat isn’t hard at work touring with The Doobie Brothers and Cris finds herself a free moment from writing bestselling books, the two of them are on the lookout for their next motorcycle adventure. In 2013, the couple decided to celebrate the 110th Anniversary of Harley Davidson in a very special way; Pat and Cris hopped aboard their 1914 and 1915 Harley twins and rode from the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame in South Dakota to the Harley Davidson Museum in Wisconsin. Their trip went off without a hitch, and was a great way for the couple to spend time together.

    THE ROAD HAWGS RADIO NETWORK - CLASSIC CHROME / REVIVING A LEGEND: 1913 VELOCE

    THE ROAD HAWGS RADIO NETWORK - CLASSIC CHROME / REVIVING  A LEGEND: 1913 VELOCE


    Special Guests: Pete Young, Historian, Blogger and Veteran Bike Enthusiast


    When looking at the English motorcycle market, one of the most renowned names that comes to mind is the legendary Velocette. From the early teens until 1970, the Veloce Ltd Company produced, sold, and raced these famous motorcycles, winning numerous championship titles in the process. The Velocette name came into play on their 2 stroke models produced in 1913; previously, the four-stroke machines had been badged as “Veloce” models. These early Veloce models have become extremely rare, and known examples number in the single digits. Our guest this week came upon a 1913 four-stroke model in 2010 which was in poor shape to say the least. Given the rarity of the machine and Pete Young’s love for veteran English motorcycles, he jumped into a complete restoration of the machine. Pete is well known throughout the vintage motorcycle world for his widely successful blog “Occhio Lungo” which covers all of the exciting projects that come across his workbench, incredible looks into the history of early motorcycling, and the wonderful riding events around the world for these early machines

    THE ROAD HAWGS RADIO NETWORK - CLASSIC CHROME - CELEBRATING THE KNUCKLEHEAD PART 1 PRE-WAR


    Special Guests: Matt Olsen, Restorer, Builder at Carl’s Cycle Supply David Monahan, Collector, Historian Anthony Rutledge, Collector, Historian


    In 1936, Harley Davidson began a new era in their history with the introduction of the overhead valve v-twin model known as the Knucklehead. Prior to this motor introduction, Harley Davidson was primarily known for its sidevalve and F-Head powerplants that combined both overhead and sidevalve technology. The Knucklehead marked the first production run of an entirely OHV model and would forever turn the course of design for the Milwaukee-based company. The Harley Davidson Knucklehead was produced for 11 years, from 1936-1947 and has remained as one of the most desired collector’s pieces for decades now. Of these years, the models produced prior to World War II have remained as the king when it comes to value and rarity.

    THE ROAD HAWGS RADIO NETWORK - CLASSIC CHROME With PANHEAD JIM'S 1933 HARLEY VL

    THE ROAD HAWGS RADIO NETWORK - CLASSIC CHROME With PANHEAD JIM'S 1933 HARLEY VL


    Special Guests: “Panhead Jim” Mahaney, Historian, Blogger and Vintage Enthusiast


    Ever since the widespread introduction of automobiles and motorcycles, their owners have set out to see the world around them from behind the controls. The early days saw most enthusiasts trying to cross the United States from coast-to-coast; not an easy task when the majority of the country was still unpopulated and lacking proper roads. These trips were often treacherous and long, but still the popularity grew. Today, the thought of touring the country is still exciting, but is nowhere near as treacherous. Cross-country trips today are usually done from the comfort of a climate controlled auto or large touring motorcycle. But, this week on Classic Chrome, we are joined by an old bike enthusiast who is setting out on his own to prove that old machines can still reliably make the journey. “Panhead Jim” Mahaney, who lives in North Carolina, is well-known for his antique motorcycle blog “Riding Vintage”. Jim is also a contributor to numerous magazines, such as American Iron, and has ridden many thousands of miles on old machines. Currently, Jim is in the process of building a 1933 Harley Davidson VL which he will be riding solo across the United States from California to North Carolina.

    THE ROAD HAWGS RADIO NETWORK - CLASSIC CHROME CANNONBALL HANDBUILT SHOW

    in Lifestyle

     CLASSIC CHROME -  CANNONBALL HANDBUILT SHOW


    Special Guests: Lonnie Isam Jr, Event Promoter: Motorcycle Cannonbal  Jason Sims, Event Staff: Motorcycle Cannonball Alan Stulberg, Revival Cycles


    In the early 1900's one man was the name in transcontinental record-setting motorcycle and automobile runs. This man crossed the wild American landscape numerous times in feats of stamina, skill, and devotion unlike any other. Imagine riding coast-to-coast aboard a 1915 Indian, or 1923 Ner-A-Car in just mere days, when there were no real paved roads. More than 100 transcontinental speed records for both autos and cars are attributed to Erwin "Cannonball" Baker.


    Since 2010, a world-class racing event has taken the motorcycle world by storm. This event is the ultimate challenge of man and machine, and is a tribute to "Cannonball" Baker's record-setting cross-country trips. The Motorcycle Cannonball is the brainchild of Lonnie Isam, Jr, and has been undertaken by a field of enthusiasts three separate times now. In 2010, motorcycles manufactured prior to 1916 crossed America from Kitty Hawk, NC to Santa Monica, CA. 2012 saw the second running of the event from Newburgh, NY to San Francisco, CA for machines built prior to 1930. Last September, pioneering enthusiasts from all over the world conquered America once again, traveling from Daytona Beach, FL to Tacoma, WA aboard machines built prior to 1937.

    To Decant Or Not to Decant, That Is The Question

    in Wine

    Third Thursday Wine Muse: To Decant or Not to Decant, That is the Question.


    Hosts Linda Rez and William Pollard will speak to Steve Lutz, vigneron, winemaker and proprieter of Lenne Estate to get a first-source perspective on decanting.  How do we know which wines to decant and which not to decant?  How can decanting improve OR destroy a wine?


    The hosts will also do a LIVE test on the show:


    1. Pouring directly from the bottle to the glass.


    2. Pouring through an aerator to the glass.


    3. Pouring into a decanter, letting it sit, and then pouring it into the glass.


    William will also share his reviews on industry leading aerators.
