    Ep 5, S4, Interview with Harley-Davidson Go to Market Manager, Michael Spaeth

    We received special permission for this interview.  Super cool discussion here on Behind the Bars with Michael Spaeth of the Harley-Davidson.  His title is mysterious but make no mistake he is a Harley insider who contributes significantly to all aspects of the Harley brand.  Discussion focused on all sorts of things, like, sleeping in ditches, product hygiene, therapeutics, and Batwing v. Sharknose fairings.

    Tune in to hear about the process employed to develop the next generation of Harley-Davidson motorcycles. 

    Thanks again to Harley-Davidson Motor Company for allowing Behind the Bars to interview Michael.  He is a great guy and very passionate and upbeat about the brand.

    Ep 2, S4, Bruce Motta, Harley Owners Group (HOG) Czar

    In this edition of Behind the Bars, John and Mark talk with Bruce Motta, Regional Manager for HOG Harley-Davidson Owners Group.  Bruce is a fascinating guy who has gone from designing nuclear subs for the Navy to making connections with motorcycle riders across the globe.  

    His harrowing account of his first time on a motorcycle and his run in with the law in Brazil make for very interesting listening.  Bruce “dances with his machine” and it comes across loud and clear why he excels in his role as Regional Manager.

    In this episode, John goes solo since Mark is off hugging trees (only for this episode).  

    John talks with Craig Ripley who has a popular Youtube Channel and does adventure touring riding all over the country.  While we are still learning many of the specs of the Pan America, Craig offers his insight on what he sees on the bike and compares it to many of the other models on the market.  Craig offers his insight on the only real American Made Dual Sport and the hill Harley-Davidson is going to need to climb in order to compete with BMW GS and KTM Adventure bikes.

    Ep 14, S3, Interview with Joe Pennington, of THE Evel Knievel Museum

    Evel Knievel has to be the interesting character to ever sit in the saddle of a motorcycle.  John and Mark were fascinated to learn that there is a museum in Topeka, Kansas dedicated to Evel.  In this podcast Joe Pennington of THE Evel Knievel Museum talks with John and Mark about the museum’s exhibits and attractions.  Evel himself, had left plans for how this museum might be designed.  There are also some interesting stories about Evel’s eccentricities.  Fun stuff all around.
