    Talking Motorcycles with Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys Chuck Koro

    in Sports

    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!

    Thank you for listening to this episode of Talking Motorcycles with Barry Boone powered by Crosley Brands!

    Talking Motorcycles with Norm Nelson...a true adventure motorcyclist

    in Sports

    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!
