Default Interview of My Expieriences Riding in the Iron Butt Rally

Last week I was interviewed again by the Motorcycle Men podcast, this time we spoke about my riding in the Iron Butt Rally

Here is a link of you want to listen

Try not to laugh at my um's, ah's, and you know's. Not sure what happened as I am not normally like that when talking about a topic I am familiar with

Well, as per my usual talent for getting screwed up, I went to the interview, passed it by, ended up in your blog and of course had to check out the A.M.A. Vintage days run. Great looking pair of Sportys gassing up in there! Backtracked, found the interview and.....listened to the whole thing, honest. Enjoyed it and seriously looking at doing the dinner in Jacksonville this February. Would be nice to squeeze in some family time down that way and get a break from the harsh weather up here. We’ll see how the house renovations progress.
