Evan Laing is a young man like many others, bitten early by the motorcycling bug and strangely compelled to set out across America as a result. Surviving a major breakdown and some serious weather in his 42-day journey served to alter his perspective on life, liberty and the pursuit of the horizon.
Back in October, world traveller and author Sam Manicom parked his book tour at my house for a night before his engagement at Morton's BMW in Fredericksburg, Virginia. I took the opportunity to sit down with him and talk about his life on the road for the podcast. Since we were sitting in my dining room, we talked ...and talked ...and TALKED for over an hour!
You may not have heard the name Paul Guillien before, but if you have ever added aftermarket accessories or panniers to your adventure bike, then you've certainly heard of Touratech. Paul is the CEO of Touratech USA, and he joins us for a long discussion about motorcycles, accessories, how products get developed, the Backcountry Discovery Routes - coming soon to the Mid-Atlantic states - and the Touratech Rallies.
Episode 15 will be out on 19 February. Our guest will be Robert Pandya, industry marketing expert and founder of Give A Shift.
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.
