Since this episode features another land speed record holder, you might think I have an unhealthy obsession with going fast on salty ground. You're not wrong, and indeed I put these two episodes together for just that reason. Gary Ilminen is also an author, journalist and knows a lot about helmets.
Like many things, earning a land speed record at the Bonneville Salt Flats starts with a dream - an obsession, some might say. Find out more with Bill Snead, who is just the kind of obsessed rider to go after a record on a bone-stock vintage bike.
Here we are, less than two years after Chasing the Horizon got started, and it's Episode 50. Instead of one guest this time, we hear from several previous guests, telling stories that didn't make it into their episodes for one reason or another.
Episode 52 will feature a discussion with author and helmet advocate Gary Ilminen. It should be out on Monday, 10 June. (Our preparations for the MOA Rally in Lebanon, Tenn., start that day, so the episode may be delayed.)
Racing schedule for 2019
Whether you're into American Flat Track, MotoAmerica, MotoGP or World Superbike, here's a list of dates for all of those circuits and their races in 2019.
It's Your Reason For Motorcycling
The podcast, while part of the MOA's broad approach to content, is not meant to be a BMW-motorcycle-only podcast, and you'll be treated to news and information from across the motorcycle industry, as well as motorcyclists (and motorcycles) of every make, marque, model and vintage. Chasing the Horizon is meant to appeal to everybody who rides a motorcycle, no matter where they're from, how old (or young) they are or what kind of motorcycle they ride.
