The Motorcycle Men
Rank #2: Episode 5 - Some of us rode, some of us got married
Holy crap can we talk. We rambled on about my trip to Key West and the bikes I saw there. We talked about leather jackets, motorcycle maintenance and those issues, we chatted about upgrades and also about the rides the boys did in my absence. Those routes will be posted on the website in the days to come for you geeky types who like to know those kind of things.
We have planned our first group ride which we have all the details on..... almost. It will take place on Sunday May 3rd. Kickstands up at 10 a.m., meet at the Dunkin Donuts off of Exit 137 of the Garden State Parkway between 9 and 10. We will be heading to High Point State Park and a yet to be determined diner in that area. The GPX file for the meet-up and the ride will be posted on the website before the ride so keep coming back for that. But keep an eye on the weather and the website, if the the weather turns out to be crappy, we'll reschedule the ride.
Lots of cool things to hear, so sit back with your favorite beverage and settle in for nearly 2 hours of crazy talk.
Thanks a bunch for stopping by.... Oh hey, we have business cards, stickers and patches coming. We also have a twitter page and facebook page and thanks for visiting www.motorcyclemen.us!! Spread the word and get out and ride.
Rank #3: Episode 29 - Interview with Del of Delboy's Garage in England
Here is an interview that I had with Del, Derek, of Delboy's Garage, a YouTube channel that provides wonderful HOW-TO instruction and lesson for Motorcycle owners and just plain simple and logical knowledge. What you are about to hear is a very articulate and passionate motorcycle enthusiast spreading the good word about what we love; Motorcycles.
The Motorcycle Men will be back in a couple of weeks after the holidays with some new stuff and we would love to have you come back and join us.
Merry Christmas and a very Safe New Year to you all. Ride Safe!!

Rank #4: Episode 15 - It's Janus....... Squeeeeeeeeeeeaaaak
We did have fun tonight and we did have a guest. Kelly "Woody" Woodring was in the V-Twin diner corner booth with us and told us about is brandy new Street Glide and his favorite rides. Tim also told us about the dead bike mystery that he was befuddled with and of course the squeak on my Heritage continues and we discussed that as well.
This episode we also talked about the required tools of the trade if you are going to work on your Harley. But if you go to www.cruztools.com you can find a tool kit for your bike regardless of what you ride!!
The Bike Spec Shootout was a good one today and despite all the comments, the bikes are really freaking cool. One of them you really have to check out is the super cool Janus Halycon 250. It's a classic looking custom bike and for you folks who really dig the vintage look of the old Indians and Harley's, this is the bike for you. There was some fun being had with the name and the look of the bike but in reality, it's a great machine and would probably be blast to ride and even more so to own. And they're affordable!! Check them out at www.janusmotorcycles.com
Now if your tastes are more geared towards the space age super duper rocket ships and you have deep pockets, you'll want to check out Confederate Motorcycles X132 Hellcat Speedster. This is one bad-ass looking bike, but, leave the better half at home because this is a solo rider bike. It's got loads of power and some really cool design.
For our guest we threw in the Harley Davidson Street Glide in the shootout. This classic and most popular of Harley's bikes is loaded with a lot of technology and great deal of classic design. Comfort is the king here and if that's what you are looking for... then this is the ride for you. Check it out at Harley Davidson and pick a color!
So check out these cool bikes and let them know what you think. Good bike companies and good bikes need to hear your voice.
Thanks for listening and we'll be back in two weeks with out season finale and will return with Season 2 just after labor day. Now get out there and ride that bike dammit!!
