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!

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.

What makes a man jump two running helicopters on a 375lb Harley-Davidson XR750 dirt track racer? Why does a man perform wheelies on a motorcycle with no front wheel?
Bubble Blackwell is "The American Daredevil" of the old school variety in the modern era. Bubba saw Evil Knievel for the first time when he was 8 years old. The fire was lit. As an adult, the man has jumped buses, cars, semi-trucks, helicopters and more on his stars and stripes Harley in America, Japan and Mexico.
50,000 people watched Bubba jump 20 automobiles and take the World Record away from Evil Knievel.He jumped 14 buses in front of 17,000 people in Nashville, Tennessee. When Jay Leno contacted Bubba about doing a stunt on live TV via the Tonight Show, Bubba said yes. On October 22, 1989 Bubba Blackwell did that show and established yet another record by jumping 14 semi-trucks on NBC
In Vegas, Bubba jumped 15 tour buses with his XR and became the only daredevil to break all of Evil Kneivels records on the same type of motorcycle using the same size ramps. Amazing. Hear his story tonight on this epic episode of Talking Motorcycles.

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.
Chris Banker, Manager of Communications for New Jersey Motorsports Park, will join us to discuss the season ending AMA Pro Road Race at NJMP. The Kawasaki Devils Showdown will be the venue where champions will be crowned. This track has produced epic battles and there are many fan friendly attractions in addition to the on-track activities. Chris will inform us of what they have planned for the season ending championship event for racers and fans alike. 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!
This week on Talking Motorcycles we go outside the industry to get the thoughts of one of the best in the promotions business. Christy has spent years developing drivers relationships with sponsors and fans. We look at inovative ways to sell race tickets and bring consumers, sponsors and riders together to grow our sport. What can sanctioning bodies do to support the promoters? What can promoters do to sell additional race tickets. How can teams and riders bring in additional sponsors and grow their personal fan base?
In 2014, Christy will bring her tremendous skills and insight to bear on Grand National Flat Track in support of National Number 91 Mickey Martin and the Bonneville Performance Triumph Grand National Team.
If you are growth oriented and looking for outside the box thinking to promote yourself, sit back and relax and enjoy the conversation tonight on Talking Motorcycles with Barry Boone.

Talking Motorcycles West Coast Road Racing Special with Tyler Ohara and Shelina Moreda
Tyler Ohara is the 2014 Daytona Vance & Hines Harley Series Daytona winner. He finished 2nd in the event then was declared the winner following Kyle Wyman’s disqualification in post race inspection. What was a good start to the 2014 Championship season is now a great one. Ohara is fired up and we talk to him about Daytona, Road America and the year ahead. In recent years, if you are going to win a Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson Series National Championship, Tyler is one of the riders you must deal with. 2014 appears to be the same way. A classic battle is already underway in the most competitive V & H HD Series!
Shelina Moreda is without a doubt one of the busiest and most diverse riders in the Pro Road Racing paddock and the sport overall. If riding the raucous XR1200 and the Brammo E-road racer was not enough diversity for you, she teaches other ladies the art of racing and on occasion dons umbrella girl apparel and wows them on pit road. A new element in the mix is her growing interest in flat track. We talk about all that and Shelina's plans for this season.
Host, Barry Boone, will summarize and comment on the conversation from last weeks show with David Lloyd of Lloyd Brothers Motorsports Ducati Team concerning the future of professional flat track in America. We reflect on the conversation and discuss the highlights revealed.
