Rank #1: HFM016 : Scott Johnson | Fuel Cafe | Mama Tried Motorcycle Show

Podcast cover
Read more

Its been awhile I know, but I promise the wait will have been well worth it! Last year was a little busier than I had hoped it to be but it was a great year filled with cool people and lots of lessons in life and business. That being said I am really happy to bring the podcast back with Episode 16 with guest Scott Johnson.

I first met Scott Johnson at the Mama Tried Motorcycle show last February and right away I could tell this guy had a passion for motorcycles and life in general! I followed him on Instagram and started learning a bit about him and thought what better person to bring on for the first episode after my year break. I could have chatted with him for hours and hope to do that sometime on another episode of the podcast but with the second Mama Tried show coming up this weekend I just wanted to get this out there to all of you and let him get back to setting up another epic motorcycle show! So sit back, enjoy and thanks for waiting patiently for the come back of the Hold Fast Motors Podcast.

Today’s podcast is an interview with Jordan Dickinson from Union Speed And Style. Jordan has been a motorhead for quite some time now, I am happy he had time to chat with me as he has been a busy man getting his Born Free 5 bike ready. We chat about the build process and the adventure he had on getting his bike to the show in California.

In episode 4 of the Hold Fast Motors podcast I get to chat with the awesome Brett Houle from Iron & Air. We started off talking about his roots in the motorcycle community, then moved on to the birth of the great Iron & Air brand. I had no idea something as cool as Iron & Air would have started out as just a instagram account then moved to being one of the premier destinations for moto-inspiration. He also filled me in on the Triumph Giveaway they are doing right now, its your chance to own a beautiful bike built by the guys at Dime City Cycles and it goes go a very good cause.  I had a few little interruptions during the show so I apologize now, this whole podcasting thing has been a blast so far even with its little hiccups.  Brett has some great stories to be told so listen up and enjoy. I also want to point out that the word fantastic was apparently really on my mind yesterday as I say it about a 100 times in this episode.

In this episode I sat down in person with Jeremy Pedersen from Relic Kustoms and Nick Pedersen his brother. They are both close friends of mine and we actually did this interview/discussion in person, I sat the laptop up and set the mic up to pick up the whole room and we just went at it. The audio quality is not the best but it was fun to chat with friends about motorcycles, this will probably be the least professional sounding of the podcasts… but who said we were professional.

Oh yeah a big thanks to Hamms Beer for fueling this chat as well.

I had the pleasure and awesome chance to sit down and talk with Neale Bayly (on the phone) last month. Brett from Iron & Air told me about him during episode 4 of Hold Fast Motors Podcast. I instantly started searching for him on the web reading his posts about the new show, his stories of great rides and his fantastic reviews of bikes. Then to top it off I found out he was a fantastic Philanthropist, we chatted about his new show Neale Bayly Rides Peru as well as his work at Wellspring International Outreach.

Trailer to his show:

Iron & Air, Dime City Cycles, Triumph Motorcycles and Neale are also running an amazing giveaway to raise money and awareness for his foundation Wellspring International Outreach.

Podcast cover

In episode 7 of the Hold Fast Motors podcast I get to chat with Max Hazan from Hazan Motorworks. I found Max while looking through Iron & Air, as well as a post on Motomucci. I’ve seen some pretty mighty motorcycle builds but this guy lays down some crazy skills to make art of metal, wood and rubber. We chat about some of his inspirations and the history of his motorcycle building career.

Here is the bike that was featured in Iron & Air Issue 9 that caught my attention. Its a 1996 Royal Enfield, or it was a 96 Royal Enfield now that it has been touched by Hazan it is its own beast in its own class. You can find more pictures of this bike and other on his website listed below in the show notes.

In the interview we talk about the evolution of a bike build, as you all know I suck at drawing anything so every bike I have built has just came together or “evolved” as they go. He has a different approach I haven’t seen before. He does life size drawings as he builds. I found a picture of him doing this very act on his tumblr and will share it below. I hope everyone enjoys this interview as much as I did, I am also trying out something new by doing a shorter 30 minute show instead of the 60 minute or longer show. Let me know what you think.

She tells us about the birth of the “motolady” website and her plans for the future of the brand. Her passion for motorcycles shines through everything she does, as well as her drive to show that motorcycling is not just a man’s world. The women she showcases ride as hard as most men I know, and usually look better doing it, with that being said listen up and enjoy the show!

This podcast has been amazing so far meeting new people in every episode, but this one is special to me. Andy AKA Astronautalis has been one of my all time favorite musicians for about 5 years. I followed him all over the interwebs (not a stalker), and one day I saw him posting something about getting a motorcycle from Harley Davidson, so what do I do I get a even bigger man crush on him and finally ask him to be on the podcast. He said yes!

Andy and I talk about all kinds of good stuff in this episode from the birth of his motorcycle passion all the way down to “Dewey The Good Samaritan”. The Harley Davidson “Taste of Freedom” Tour has placed the moto-bug in Andy’s head and it’s there to stay, and I’m  happy to have him on the show to tell us about it!

This episode is the first of its kind for the Hold Fast Podcast, first off sorry for the delay on releasing this episode. The file got misplaced on one of my drives and after finally finding it I wasn’t sure I liked the audio either way its here now! This was recorded at the MotoSota Show up at the Norseman Distillery back on October 1st 2016. I got the idea to do a live recording of some interviews right at the show so that we could give people who couldn’t make it a little taste of what it was all about. This is also the first episode with no real intro music or a formal intro, its kind of a rough cut show but I like it.

Brian Durk and Charlie Dorius are two of the most original and talented bike builders I know, they introduced me to a whole different world of Motorcycles and were the gateway to a group of solid friends that inhabit “The Palace”.  When I heard they were teaming up to build a bike for the #peopleschamp4 I knew they were going to kill it. Its not just them either, they’ve brought in a little help from everyone at The Palace and other friends to make this thing a reality. I really can’t even begin to describe with words what they have going on there, so I will let the podcast do it for me! I hope you have a sense of humor because this conversation gets weird! I will update this post as the build continues!

HFM019 : Ben Giese | Founder of Meta Magazine

I met Ben while attending Motos In Moab last May, I had been eyeing up his XS650 when we finally struck up a conversation. We were chatting about that bike when he brought up the fact that he “worked” at Meta Magazine and handed me a couple copies of which I of course immediately consumed hanging around at the camp site. Meta is one of those magazines that you can sit and page through a million times and not get sick of it, the stories are great, the pictures are beautiful and its printed on nice heavy paper. Meta is a moto magazine that should be on every two wheel addict’s coffee table.

It wasn’t until after the trip that I found out Ben was one of the founders of this kick ass magazine company. Being infatuated with entrepreneurs and motorcycles I knew I had to have him on the podcast and let me tell you Ben did not disappoint. We chat about everything from his upbringing with motos all the way up to the starting of the great Meta Magazine itself. Sit back, relax and get inspired because this one will get your wheels turning!

John Christenson in the Oil & Ink studio

I started this podcast with the hopes of bringing people together to tell the stories of how motorcycles effect their lives and I would never had thought that I would make so many friends during the process. John is one of those friends now, we connected via the amazing world of Instagram and from then on we had talks of getting together to do this interview. It took last years Handbuilt Motorcycle Show in Texas for us two Minnesotans to finally meet, after a beer or two and some great conversation I knew I needed to have him on the show, so last week we chatted it up over the phone and he filled me in on how the Oil and Ink Expo came to fruition.

Oil & Ink Studio

I’m experimenting a bit with shorter shows, so let me know what you think? I have been trying to keep them closer to the hour mark to make it easier on the guests as most of them have quite busy schedules. Enzo, my slightly needy border collie also decided to have a few words in this episode so there’s that, if its not construction work, family members popping over or my dog having a fit it just wouldn’t be an authentic HFMpodcast.

Below is the schedule for the 2015 tour of the Oil & Ink Expo get to at least one of them you will not be disappointed.

I had the pleasure of chatting with Cam Elkins the founder and operator of the amazing video series Stories of Bike. The videos are stories of motorcycles and the people who ride them simple as that, but the videos are far from simple. Cam brings out the emotions behind the motorcycle and the reasons people ride them.

Cam resides in beautiful Australia, so we had to do some finagling to get the time zones to work out but we made it happen and what a great conversation it was! He tells me the story of how Stories of Bike came to be, why he does it and where he plans to take it.

Cam shoots these videos on a minimal set up, but you would never be able to tell, because they look as if they came out of a Hollywood studio. He also has his brother create matching musical scores to each video, which just adds a whole different level of awesome to these motorcycle films. I’m done moving my fingers, go have a listen to Episode 14 of the Hold Fast Motors podcast and learn a little about how to use your passion to create something amazing!

This is my favorite episode so far really a touching story and the bike is absolutely stunning as well!

Happy Belated Halloween everyone!

I’ve always wanted to get the guys from ICON on after seeing the amazing bikes they built for the ICON 1000 series and of course the fantastic riding gear they produce, so getting to talk to Joe Gustafson their marketing and communications specialist was a great opportunity! The best part was that we got to chat the same day they released their new film Containment Conflicts! We get a taste of what it was like filming the new Zombie / Moto flick, and some perspective on why they made it. Joe and I also chat it up about why we ride what we ride and how ICON stands out among riding gear. This was such a great interview I can tell just from talking to Joe that ICON has got a great crew working for them and that they will keep producing ground breaking products in the motorcycle industry.

Podcast cover
Read more

I had the pleasure and awesome chance to sit down and talk with Neale Bayly (on the phone) last month. Brett from Iron & Air told me about him during episode 4 of Hold Fast Motors Podcast. I instantly started searching for him on the web reading his posts about the new show, his stories of great rides and his fantastic reviews of bikes. Then to top it off I found out he was a fantastic Philanthropist, we chatted about his new show Neale Bayly Rides Peru as well as his work at Wellspring International Outreach.

Trailer to his show:

Iron & Air, Dime City Cycles, Triumph Motorcycles and Neale are also running an amazing giveaway to raise money and awareness for his foundation Wellspring International Outreach. They are giving away a cafed out 2013 Triumph Bonneville all done by Dime City Cycles. Check out this video here to learn more.

This is a shorter episode so let me know if you like them this length or the full hour or more style. Listen up and enjoy.

HFM004 : Brett Houle | Co-founder of Iron & Air Magazine

In episode 4 of the Hold Fast Motors podcast I get to chat with the awesome Brett Houle from Iron & Air. We started off talking about his roots in the motorcycle community, then moved on to the birth of the great Iron & Air brand. I had no idea something as cool as Iron & Air would have started out as just a instagram account then moved to being one of the premier destinations for moto-inspiration. He also filled me in on the Triumph Giveaway they are doing right now, its your chance to own a beautiful bike built by the guys at Dime City Cycles and it goes go a very good cause.  I had a few little interruptions during the show so I apologize now, this whole podcasting thing has been a blast so far even with its little hiccups.  Brett has some great stories to be told so listen up and enjoy. I also want to point out that the word fantastic was apparently really on my mind yesterday as I say it about a 100 times in this episode.

HFM003 : Relic Kustoms | Jeremy Pedersen | Nick Pedersen

In this episode I sat down in person with Jeremy Pedersen from Relic Kustoms and Nick Pedersen his brother. They are both close friends of mine and we actually did this interview/discussion in person, I sat the laptop up and set the mic up to pick up the whole room and we just went at it. The audio quality is not the best but it was fun to chat with friends about motorcycles, this will probably be the least professional sounding of the podcasts… but who said we were professional.

Oh yeah a big thanks to Hamms Beer for fueling this chat as well.
