The life and times of Nicky Hayden. We go behind the scenes with an AMA Pro Flat Track winner, AMA Superbike Champion, 2006 MotoGP World Champion and now set to compete in the 2016 FIM World Superbike Championship!
Perhaps this is the best possible time to sit down with Nicky to discuss his life and career. The 2015 Inductee in the MotoGP Hall of Fame as a Legend will reflect on his 12 year run in MotoGP. During that ime he was teamed with Dani Pedrosa, Casey Stoner and Valentino Rossi twice. 200 GP's, 28 Podiums, 3 wins and the World Championships only tell part of the story. We hope to get the rest of them in this edition of Talking Motorcycles with Barry Boone powered by Crosley Brands!
If he wins the World Superbike title, Nicky would become the first rider in history to win both WSBK and MotoGP World Championships. Can he pull it off? We get his thoughts.
Nicky Hayden is now 34 years old but the competitive fires are still burning.

Many of us have ridden coast to coast. We do it on Harley-Davidson Ultra Classics, BMW R1200GS's, Honda Gold Wings or RT's. Our guest tonight has done it many times. It is always an adventure whatever we choose to ride. Norm Nelson defines an adventure motorcyclist.
His prize 1958 Harley-Davidson Sportster has been his choice for two coast to coast rides to Alaska including all the way up the Alcan Highway. The interesting thing is those two trips were 25 years apart!
Norm has competed in two coast to coast Motorcycle Cannonball twice. In his first effort he finished third. His second try resulted in a second place finish. In 2016, Norm Nelson will compete in his third Motorcycle Cannonball. This time he will be riding a 1911 Reading Standard 500cc Single cylinder, single speed motorcycle that is little more than a bicycle frame with about 5 horsepower.
All motorcycle road racers would like to say they have won at the World Center of Racing, Daytona International Speedway. Norm Nelson has 7 wins at Daytona. Six of those victories were on a 1950 Norton Manx!
In this edition of Talking Motorcycles with Barry Boone powered by Crosley Brands, we learn a great deal about a true adventure touring motorcyclist. Meet Norman Frederick Nelson!

Brad "The Bullit" Baker wins the Superprestigio in an epic battle with Marc Marquez. The factory Harley-Davidson rider put his mad skills to work on the perfectly prepared Superprestigio surface and put on a text book clinic to show the world just how good he is. From the opening practice session he demonstrated complete control over the field. Baker joins us LIVE tonight to discuss his victory as well as the overall experience of representing the USA in Barcelona! We will also get his thoughts on the 2016 AMA Pro Grand National Flat Track season ahead. Daytona is just around the corner.
Jared Mees finished 3rd to give the USA two spots on the victory podium in Spain. Mees was recently crowned the 2015 AMA Pro Grand National Champion in Las Vegas. Both of those results will be the focal point of our discussion with Mees. Jared and his wife, Nichole, recently announced that they were assuming the role of promoter at the Lima Half Mile National. We will discuss how that came about and what their plans are for the event going forward. The new Dunlop flat track specific tire was rolled out at DuQuoin in 2015. Mees rear tire was virtually worn out while the rest of the field had lots of rubber left. This created a controversy that continues even now. We get Jared's take on the topic.
Chris Carr served as color analyst for the 2015 season and both the Superprestigio and Superprestigio of the America's. We look forward to gaining valuable insight from the 7 time Grand National Champion.

The Stayin’ Safe experience combines the pleasures of motorcycle touring with real world, real-time advanced skills coaching. Regardless of which tour you choose, our programs are similar in that they offer riders of nearly every motorcycle type a fun opportunity to enjoy some of the best riding roads and attractions in the country while also learning advanced visual strategies and techniques for smoother cornering and safer riding. With a target ratio of three or four participants to each tour leader/coach, we conduct our instructional tours primarily on mountain roads, in rural settings and smallish towns with limited riding on divided highways and in urban environments (although we do have custom programs available for this type of riding).
Using one-way radio communication, coaching commentary is provided during the tour in real-world riding situations. This approach enables riders to apply new visual strategies and to sharpen cornering and braking skills en route in real time. In addition to the real-time coaching, our tour leaders/coaches conduct “chalk talks”, creating a virtual classroom along the roadside. These breaks provide opportunities to illustrate concepts, discuss techniques and address any questions participants may have. Our training tours are not fast sport rides and all riding sessions begin slowly. When conditions permit, we do sometimes enjoy an “adult” pace. At times we will ride at the pace of the slowest rider, but never at a faster pace than each rider is comfortable with.
Eric Trow of Stayin Safe joins us for a full episode of Talking Motorcycles and we expect to learn much about staying off the ground, having more fun and being smoother!

He was a guest on our show live at the Hilton Daytona Beach for the kickoff of the 2014 Cannonball and has agreed to be our guest for the full hour and we are most excited to have Patrick on the show.
The bonus is that Patrick will be joined on the show by his wife Cris Sommer Simmons. She has been a major player in motorcycling for many years and recently released her third book on the subject. The Cannonball Diary documents her coast to coast ride in 2010 on a 1915 Harley-Davidson affectionately known as Effie. She is the recipient of numerous industry awards and honors and has encouraged women around the world to get out and ride. In addition to her 1915 H-D, Cris also owns several modern motorcycles.
Patrick and Cris met in Sturgis in 1989 - Tonight's program will provide an insight to these great guests that you will not learn anywhere else!

We ride motorcycles for a multitude of reasons. The movie "Why We Ride" illustrated many of them. I have mine and you have yours. Regardless of why we ride there are times when things go badly. As motorcyclist we go down. What we do in the minutes, hours, days and weeks that follow a motorcycle accident makes a difference. Do you know what those things are?
Chuck Koro with Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys joins us in this episode to educate and inform us on the answers to those questions and more. We will delve deeply into the topic of motorcycle accident and injury. Together we will learn valuable information about this all important topic to us all.
The old adage is that there are two types of motorcycle riders, those that have gone down and those that will. We may add one more and that is those that will again. Accidents of many types are a fact of life in motorcycling. It is a subject we may prefer to avoid but that may be a costly mistake!
