The Voice of Chopper Culture

Rank #1: Chopperprophets-S2E3 - Max Schaaf

Podcast cover

Max Schaaf has seen the ups and downs of this culture and weathered the storms that form where men grapple for glory and recognition. He creates his art with purpose and functionality. Even more importantly, he does what he does with passion and conviction. After speaking with him for over two hours, I feel this quote best sums up Max...

"In character, in manner, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicity." - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I first met Tyler face to face at the annual Biltwell swap about a year ago. Tyler leads a pretty busy life, being a dad, traveling, riding, racing, and supporting events all around the globe. He's built a small empire with Lowbrow Customs which now supports not only himself full time but friends and family as well. Through the magic of the interwebs, we were able to sit down virtually with Tyler and talk. There's a whole lot more to this man than meets the eye. Grab a beverage or two and join us.

Rank #5: Chopperprophets-S3E5 -Keino Sasaki (Keino Cycles, NY)

Podcast cover
Read more
A few words come to mind when I think of Keino, but one really stands out; Determined. Keino has lived a pretty incredible life not void of adventure or amazing opportunity. It takes guts to stare fear in the face, pack up everything you own, and move across the country for a single opportunity. It takes even more guts to leave your native land to pursue a dream in another. Sit down with Keino and I as we discuss life, loss, and the pursuits of a dreamer.

Rank #6: Chopperprophets-S2:E12 - Roadblock 1%r

Podcast cover
Read more
Your browser does not support the audio element.
RoadBlock 1%er grew up in Jacksonville, Florida’s Sin City neighborhood. An admitted “adrenaline junkie” in his early years, he raced on NASCAR-sanctioned tracks in Florida and Georgia with many of the great drivers from that era, including Wayne Shugart, the Ezells, Eddie MacDonald, Rance Phillips, Herb Spivey and Tiny Lund.

Fast cars led to fast motorcycles, and RoadBlock joined the Outlaws Motorcycle Club in 1971. In the years to follow, he became president of several Florida chapters, then Regional Boss, living the high-speed 1970s lifestyle of sex, drugs and rock and roll.

That lifestyle caught up with him and he wound up serving thirty years in federal prison, beginning in Leavenworth U.S. Penitentiary. As one Judge declared, they wanted to make an example of him to discourage others from joining motorcycle clubs. Ironically, even from a prison cell, RB became well known in the U.S. and internationally because of his ability to survive, and his "never give up" attitude.

As for the motorcycle clubs the judge hoped to eliminate, they are stronger today than ever.
In the years following 9/11, RB began to receive correspondence from young military people. Their courage, despite the traumatic physical and mental injuries they sustained, profoundly affected RB. These vets returned home to a world they no longer felt comfortable in, just as many Vietnam vets did in RB's era.  RB became an outspoken advocate for disabled vets, and the rights they were due.

In December 2009, RB finally reached his mandatory release date, and was allowed to go home after almost 30 years in prison.

He is now writing a fiction biker series set in the 1970s about the adventures of military vet Joe Wilson. Struggling with PTSD in a time when Vietnam vets were reviled and disrespected, Joe's rise to power in the notorious Regents Motorcycle Club shows one man's attempt to find his place in a changed world. The first book is appropriately titled "The Probate."

Rank #7: Chopperprophets-S2E7 - Oliver Jones (The Cutrate)

Podcast cover
Read more
When I first met Oliver, I had no idea the caliber of individual I was shaking hands with. Quiet, almost stoic, but engaged Oliver can seem at first glance like he could care less about what's going on around him. This however couldn't be further from the truth. He's a driven and observant man with conviction; A full or no throttle type guy that's not afraid to get his hands dirty to "get it done". Listen to Oliver talk about jumping in to life head first, you will not be disappointed.

“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.” ― Henry David Thoreau

Few people now days actually live in the present. Neither do they look you straight in your eyes and listen to the things you have to say, instead of thinking of what they'll say next. I think that's what makes Josh so interesting. He has a natural ability to capture moments of life on film, preserving not just a pictoral account, but something greater. Join us as we peer into Josh's life on this episode of Chopper Prophets.

This year I grabbed my trusty iPhone and with pure enthusiasm headed to Born Free 6 for 2 days of awesome chopperin! I'm not going to lie, I was there on a mission to capture a few interviews with some folks I have been meaning to talk with.

These interviews were recorded live at Born Free 6 and I think capture a tiny bit of the energies you feel while there.

"Goodness does not consist in greatness, but greatness in goodness." -Athenaeus

Andy certainly brings a lot of goodness. To have had the experiences that Andy has had at such a young age and not let them go to your head or destroy you takes a certain amount of humility. Listen in as we talk life, family, and machines.

Rank #11: Chopperprophets-S3E6 - Dave Polgreen

Podcast cover
Read more
This interview is one that couldn't have come together as it did any other way. Dave and his family had just moved to California from Minnesota and were likely still unpacking when he came down to talk choppers and life with me. Dave is such an unassuming person. He is calm, easy to talk with, and has had some great experiences in life. These things made this interview a complete pleasure and I think you'll agree that Dave is one of those people that plays his cards close to chest but when he does show his hand, you walk away a better person.

Most people in this world are content to live life the way they're supposed to; College, Career, Marriage, House, Taxes, and Death. Not everyone can step outside the normula and just make things happen. George isn't just anyone and maybe that's why he's had some great success in leaving the world behind and following his dreams. From being a student to becoming the teacher, to rebuilding an old Airstream and living mostly off the grid George is a blessed man, but how did get to here?
