    The Average Motorcyclist - Tim Randall

    The Average Motorcyclist - Tim Randall

    We’ve had some incredible travellers on this podcast and have been regaled with tales of adventure to far off and exotic places, trips around the world and years spent exploring on motorcycles. And while we are inspired by those stories and dream of going to these places when we close our eyes at night, it simply isn’t the reality for many riders who have families, jobs or bills to pay. So, that means that for the average motorcyclist, adventure usually happens closer to home. On this episode, tips on shorter trips from an experienced rider.

    Rider Skills: How a Motorcycle Clutch Works and How Much Abuse it Can Take

    Rider Skills: How a Motorcycle Clutch Works and How Much Abuse it Can Take

    When maneuvering at low speeds, slipping the clutch on your motorcycle is an essential skill with a manual clutch. Most riders learn that if you slip the clutch too much you can wear it out quickly, so why do riding instructors tell you that you need to slip the clutch? On this episode of Rider Skills we talk with Clinton Smout about clutches, how they work, warning signs that you’re abusing your clutch and more.

    What You Should be Wearing Under Moto Gear May Surprise You

    The motorcycle industry offers many choices of underlayers for motorcycle gear. Different models, materials, and thickness. And it would make sense that the more layers you have, the more protection, especially if those layers were abrasion resistant. And when the manufacturer designed the gear to protect you - what did they imagine you were gong to wear underneath? What is the bare minimum you should wear under your jacket and pants?

    This is Totally Absurd - Keith Futcher

    This is Totally Absurd - Keith Futcher

    It all started when Keith Futcher saw a glossy photo in a glossy magazine that ignited a desire to ride a motorcycle to the Sahara to see a sunrise. Except Keith didn’t own a motorcycle, neither did his brother or his friend, both of whom were planning to go with him. Furthermore, they had no riding experience, and certainly none off-road, in fact none of them even possessed a licence to ride a motorcycle. In addition to all that, Keith would be 70 and still they made a plan to ride into the African desert - it was the real deal.

    Saying Their Good-Byes to Kenya and on to New Adventures - Tim and Marisa Notier

    Saying Their Good-Byes to Kenya and on to New Adventures - Tim and Marisa Notier

    A few years ago, Tim and Marisa set out to explore the world, they travelled through North and South America, then headed to Africa. When the pandemic hit and many travellers headed home, Tim and Marisa decided to stick it out, so they found a good place to stay and became locals in Kenya. But, as things dragged on and remained locked down, their visas expired and their route was cut off, so they returned to the United States. And that’s where we caught up with Tim and Marisa, preparing for the next leg of their adventure.

Rider skills - very helpful

Some people learn by reading, others need hands-on experience. I find listening works well for me, and Jim’s regular series on Rider Skills is very helpful in giving me tips to think about, and listening to them allows me to imagine myself following the practice challenges. Works for me!
