Sharknose fairings.

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

    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.

Getting there

Been looking for a podcast for Harley/Cruiser aficionados for a while and surprised to see almost nothing out there. Tons of broad stroke motorcycle podcasts but none could hold my attention (I don’t want to hear about Kawasaki Ninjas) This podcast is definitely on its way to filling the role I’ve been looking for. Though it’s still young I’m excited to see where this podcast goes therefore I’m a subscriber. For recommendations, I suggest doing an episode on levels of maintenance and upgrades like revzilla does with their beard levels and then gear prep for long hauls.

Fun and informative!

Some topics are more interesting than others, but I always learn something! And listening to Mark try to put one over on John is always entertaining!
