    in Sports

    Royal Enfield is one of the biggest names in motorcycling in India and is the world’s oldest motorcycle company to be in continuous production, has named Rod Copes as its President for North America. Rod will now be responsible for driving the business in the United  States and Canada for Royal Enfield. With Copes on board Royal Enfield fully intends on rapidly expanding its brand in the US of A, which is also its top export market at present.


    Royal Enfield NA President Rod Copes joins us for this episode of Talking Motorcycles to bring us up to speed on their plans for the North American market going forward. Their new distribution center is located in the heart of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The new game plan includes factory owned retail stores. 


    Rod Copes had a 20 year history with the Harley-Davidson Motor Company. His final position with Harley-Davidson was Director of Global Sales and Customer Service. This would appear an unlikely career path for a man with a Masters degree in engineering, He brings to Royal Enfield understanding of global markets as well as the North American market.

    As the fastest growing motorcycle brand in the world, Royal Enfield has a game plan for success in North America and we are excited to have the opportunity to go inside the mind of the man who will lead the charge in America!

    in Sports

    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.

    Talking Motorcycles with Brad Baker, Jared Mees and Chris Carr

    in Sports

    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.
