    Talking Motorcycles with the Roadrace Factory's Danny Walker

    in Sports

    The Roadrace Factory is entering the 2015 MotoAmerica season with new rider announcements and Danny Walker joins us to discuss the exciting rider lineup for the season ahead.

    Jake Gagne will head up the teams efforts for 2015 aboard the all new Yamaha R1 in Superstock. Jake's training has ramped up in the off season as he prepares for his return to the Roadrace Factory.

    Tomas Puerta (Columbia) brings high expectations for the RRF team in 2015 riding the R6 Yamaha in the Supersport Class. Puerta was the AMA Pro Daytona Sportbike Rookie of the Year.

    Ben Young will be returning to the American road racing scene after a season abroad in the British Superbike Series competing in the 1000cc Superstock class. Young will be bringing with him the sponsorship of Tim Hortons. 

    Cameron Peterson, the South African 2013 Super600 Champion will be working to adapt to not only his new Roadrace Factory team but the race tracks utilized by MotoAmerica in 2015.

    This four rider package will mean much adjustment for the Roadrace Factory team led by Danny Walker. We go inside the mind of one of the most talkative and dynamic team owners in the sport to get his thoughts on the season ahead. Organizing the team around this four rider lineup requires much energy, dedication and money. We will talk about all three of those when Danny Walker joins us LIVE for this episode of Talking Motorcyles.

    Talking Motorcycles with the Producer/Director of "Why We Ride"

    in Sports

    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 Walker//Producer

    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 2007 James founded Walking West Entertainment and the Walking West Film Financing Syndicate.

    Bryan H. Carrol//Producer and Director

    Wiht blockbuster movies such as Titanic, Collateral, Miami Vice and Public Enemies in his background, Bryan has built a successful career in filmaking while working with the likes of James Cameron, Michael Mann, jerry Bruckheimer and Joel Silver. His experience at bringing projects from the script to the screen, have made him one of the most sought after and highly regarded filmakers in Hollywood.

    Talking Motorcycles with Pat Simmons/Doobie Bros/Norm Nelson/Buzz Kanter!

    in Sports

    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.
