    Podcast 372: The Name Game Challenge w/Phil from Cleveland Moto

    Podcast 372: The Name Game Challenge w/Phil from Cleveland Moto

    This week on our motorcycle podcast we hear from Jim and Liza who spent the last two days training with Jocelin Snow in her backyard two wheel torture camp. Lots were learned, and they can both say that riding with a blindfold is not recommended.
    Next up we are joined by our special guest, Phil from the Cleveland Moto Podcast, for a new game. Who knew there were so many bikes named after animals?
    Liza shares her new bike, the 1975 KZ400 that was immediately covered in bird poop. This has to be a sign of good luck somewhere, isn't it? This leads into a conversation about restoring versus getting a bike back on the road.
    Lastly we answer listener emails and discuss what old bikes to stay away from, and which ones are a good investment.
    With Liza, Miss Emma, Bagel, Naked Jim, Nak and Phil.

    Podcast 371: From Newb to Instructor

    Podcast 371: From Newb to Instructor

    This week on our motorcycle podcast we hear from Mycah, who came to us as a passenger, then a beginner rider, and is now becoming an instructor. What a path she's been on, and we couldn't be prouder to have been a part of her moto journey to becoming the best rider she can be.
    We also talk about the latest news, particularly the postponement of our favorite rally, the AMA Vintage Days. Cancelling, postponing, or going ahead with a large event in these times of Covid is a hard decision. We break down what some of the reasons are, while also encouraging others to attend.
    Liza shares a cool short movie to check out, Rebel Riders, which is about the Indonesion custom scooter culture. Really wacky stuff they are doing. Check it out. https://youtu.be/pPyvUC2UixE
    And lastly we read some listener emails and give some tips on finding those hard to find vintage parts.
    With Liza, Mycah, Charley, Nak, Miss Emma, Bagel and Naked Jim.

    Podcast 370: Owen and the Mini Deathtrap

    Podcast 370: Owen and the Mini Deathtrap

    This week on our motorcycle podcast we talk about our new video project and the studio we set up in the garage. Also, we talk about the newest Misfit, 14 yr old Owen and his mini bike project. He is willing to do whatever it takes to get on two wheels. We just love his passion and enthusiasm, but we don't love his mini bike.
    Nak gives an update on his post crash recovery, and shares what gear he was wearing and what worked.
    Liza shares her involvement with an upcoming podcasters panel on Revvtalks.com. And lastly, we read listener emails.
    With Liza, Miss Emma, Naked Jim, Bagel, John Dalton and Award Winning Mike shows up just in time for us to get out of here.

    Podcast 369: Here's To Robert Black and Gas Tank Tacos

    Podcast 369: Here's To Robert Black and Gas Tank Tacos

    This week on our motorcycle podcast we hear from Nak, who was mistaken for the grape crush lady after crashing his bike, resulting in his very first ambulance ride. He'll be healed up in a couple of months, but more importantly his bike was not damaged. But it made me think about preparing a go bag for each of the Misfits. Just 3 items that they would want if they had an unplanned hospital stay. What would you want in your go bag?
    Then we open up the flood gates and let listeners join us in the conversation. We answer some emails, Mike tells some long ass stories, Emma talks about Tikka Masala and answers some listeners questions about pregnant batteries and such. Oh yeah, and Liza goes on another rant about group rides during stay in shelter orders.
    With Liza, Nak, Naked Jim, Miss Emma, Bagel and the rest.
