Our guest this week is Axe DeKruif. Engineer, chopper maker, rider, driver, dude who rode his BMW S1000RR from San Diego, CA to Jacksonville, FL in a record-setting 33 hours and 10 minutes. He's talking to us about the movie he's made to document the experience and we immediately shove that noise overboard and grill him about the FLIR camera he's hooked up to the bike as well the other mods he made to the bike for the trip. I have a suspicion the trip and the movie all exist just so that he can make the world listen to his singing voice.
You can check him and get more info about purchasing/renting the movie out at Ychrome.com.
See the trailer for the movie on YouTube.

Buell Motorcycle Company posted this as a teaser to their Facebook page. Real planned product or something they found on EBR's fileserver after they bought them? Or is it announcing a add-on headlight system for the Pan American that allows for rider-controlled emojis?
