Talking Motorcycles proudly presents another episode as a part of our AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Series.
David Aldana, 1999 Hall of Fame inductee, became famous early in his career for his "all or nothing" mentality as a professional motorcycle racer. He was a rookie expert in AMA Grand National competition in 1970. He went on to place 3rd in the Championship winning three Grand Nationals along the way. In total, David won 4 Grand Nationals in his flat track career. He competed in nearly every form of motorcycle racing including motocross and road racing. During his road racing career he was a factory rider for Suzuki, Kawasaki and Honda. In 1981 he teamed up with Mike Baldwin to win the SUZUKA 8 Hour Endurance Race in front of 10's of thousands of fans. Suzuka was at that time, one of the most prestigious road races in the world and the one race everyone wanted to win. Known for his black leathers with the white skeleton outline in the front, Aldana was and continues to be a fan favorite world wide.
Brian Slark, 2012 Hall of Fame inductee, was one of the people who gets credit for the creation of motocross in America. He was at one time the importer of the Rickman Metisse. Brian assisted Hall of Famer, Dave Mungenast in the creation of a vintage motorcycle museum in St. Louis. He then helped create the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum in Leeds, Alabama. Today Barber is considered the premier vintage motorcycle museum in the world and Brian oversees the restoration work in their shop as Technical Director. If you have a Clymer Service Manual published from 1971 through 1984, the teardown work was likely performed by Brian Slark.
Both of the legendary men will be on hand at the 16th annual Riding Into History event this weekend!
THE ROAD HAWGS RADIO NETWORK - CLASSIC CHROME / COMING HOME FOR THE 110th. STURGIS TO MILWAUKEE
Special Guests: Patrick Simmons, Musician, Collector, Vintage Bike Enthusias Cris Sommer Simmons, Author, Motor Maid, Vintage Bike Enthusiast
Many folks find it hard to take the time to really hit the road on their motorcycles. Work schedules and family obligations often get in the way. But what do you do if you find yourself touring with one of the biggest rock and roll bands in the world throughout most of the year, or writing award-winning books, and you need a motorcycle fix? This week, we are joined by friends of the program, Cannonball finishers, and serious motorcycle junkies Pat and Cris Simmons. When Pat isn’t hard at work touring with The Doobie Brothers and Cris finds herself a free moment from writing bestselling books, the two of them are on the lookout for their next motorcycle adventure. In 2013, the couple decided to celebrate the 110th Anniversary of Harley Davidson in a very special way; Pat and Cris hopped aboard their 1914 and 1915 Harley twins and rode from the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame in South Dakota to the Harley Davidson Museum in Wisconsin. Their trip went off without a hitch, and was a great way for the couple to spend time together.
The first part of the show this week will take you back several decades to the time of hotrods, muscle cars, choppers, poodle skirts & Beehive Hairdos, blue jeans & white t shirts. The second part is about an event to benefit a wonderful charity that helps children with developmental disabilities achieve their highest level of independence.
Joining us will be the organizers for the May 30th Retro Rally in the College Hill District of Rock Island, IL to give you all the details of this family friendly FREE event featuring Vintage Cars & Bikes, Pinup Contest, Music, Vendors, Arts and Crafts, Food & Drink and all things RETRO and COOL.
Up next will be Dan Kost with the Quad Cities Motorcycle Rally and City Tour at the Hillcrest Event Center in Orion, IL on May 23. This FREE event to benefit the Children’s Therapy Center of the Quad Cities features a Pancake Breakfast, Exhibits, Bike Show, Vendors, Food, Local Fun Run (Free) Door Prizes, Biker Rodeo & More.
Dan stepped up and took the reins of what had been the largest Bi-State Motorcycle Awareness Ride in the Country. This was a free riding event to not just raise motorcycle awareness but to help out the Children’s Therapy Center of the Quad Cities until the local cities started to charge huge sums of money for the police escort. Having to cover the additional expense by charging riders was a deathblow for them. Fortunately Dan had gotten involved a couple of years ago and was there to keep it from going away for good. In order to keep this Motorcycle Awareness Ride going there would have to be some changes. The parade style continuous ride was changed to a continuous ride made up of small groups, thus avoiding the high cost of the police escort. The features and amenities the Hillcrest Event Center offers made expanding the ride into a motorcycle rally an easy decision.

The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview celebrity James Wilder.
His film work included such diverse projects as "Scorchers" with icons Faye Dunaway and James Earl Jones, "Flypaper" opposite Lucy Liu, and "Nevada" alongside Angus McFadden and Gabrielle Anwar. He also appeared in (starred) "The Coriolis Effect," which won The Grand Prize (in its category) at the Venice Film Festival. But it was his scorching depiction of serial killer Carl Isaacs in the acclaimed Miramax film "Murder One" that definitively thrust him into the limelight.
Wilder was featured in the pages of Vanity Fair alongside Alec Baldwin, Meg Ryan, Robin Wright, and Keifer Sutherland, GQ, Detour, and many other high profile titles. Often disinterested in the mainstream roles coming his way, he began turning his attention to the more provocative world of independent films and his passion for design and architecture.
Untrained as an architect or interior designer, Wilder's keen eye and distinct vision has transformed a dozen empty lots throughout California into panoramic living art. From gothic to baroque, sleekly modern to vintage chic, each of designs boasts a singularly unique aesthetic, one of which was recognized by HGTV as among LA's top three most outstanding properties alongside a Frank Lloyd Wright design.
Slowly the homes he built in his exclusive Hollywood Hills neighborhood have evolved into a loosely-structured artist's retreat inspired by Elia Kazan, Wilder's favorite renegade. Annie Leibovitz, Stanley Tucci, Blake Shelton, Tom Ford, Eddie Van Halen, Jesse James, and Stevie Wonder are just a few of the marquee names who have chosen his properties for photo shoots, exclusive events and long-term inspirational living spaces.

THE ROAD HAWGS RADIO NETWORK - CLASSIC CHROME / REVIVING A LEGEND: 1913 VELOCE
Special Guests: Pete Young, Historian, Blogger and Veteran Bike Enthusiast
When looking at the English motorcycle market, one of the most renowned names that comes to mind is the legendary Velocette. From the early teens until 1970, the Veloce Ltd Company produced, sold, and raced these famous motorcycles, winning numerous championship titles in the process. The Velocette name came into play on their 2 stroke models produced in 1913; previously, the four-stroke machines had been badged as “Veloce” models. These early Veloce models have become extremely rare, and known examples number in the single digits. Our guest this week came upon a 1913 four-stroke model in 2010 which was in poor shape to say the least. Given the rarity of the machine and Pete Young’s love for veteran English motorcycles, he jumped into a complete restoration of the machine. Pete is well known throughout the vintage motorcycle world for his widely successful blog “Occhio Lungo” which covers all of the exciting projects that come across his workbench, incredible looks into the history of early motorcycling, and the wonderful riding events around the world for these early machines
