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.

The young lions of the 2014 AMA Pro Supersport season roar in to Talking Motorcycles in this episode!
Kaleb De Keyrel is on a mission. Following a 14th and 12th place finish at Daytona to start his season the youngster from Minnesotta has not been out of the top 5 and has earned two podiums with third place finishes in the last round at Barber Motorsports Park. Currently 5th in points in his second full season in Supersport, the early talk about his tremendous talent appears to be rooted in fact as the season progresses. We will get to know this young man better during this episode!
Dustin Dominguez is having a solid year in Supersport. He recorded his first win of the season in Race 2 at Barber. He finds himself tucked in in third place in the championship battle as Alexander and Gillim remained tied for the series points lead. Dustin is only 12 points out of that battle. What will be his focus and game plan going forward in the highly competitive 2014 AMA Pro Supersport?
Hayden Gillim finds himself in the best position of his road racing career. Gillim has earned two wins and has been on the podium in every race except Race 2 at Daytona where he had to settle for 6th. Tied for the series points lead with Corey Alexander who has proven to be a formidable competitor, Hayden has a plan for the balance of the season and we will see exactly what that is in this episode. We will discuss with him the prospect of riding a 1000cc machine this coming weekend!
Following the successful show last weekend featuring some of the up and coming young female riders in the 2014 AMA Pro Supersport series it is time now to turn our attention to these fast young guys! Who is going to prevail in what is shaping up to be an amazingly competitive season in Supersport!

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.

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.
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!
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.

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.
