Robert Pandya cut his teeth in the motorcycle industry by working in a dealership, then he moved on to working directly for manufacturers. Based on his experience inside the industry, he came up with the Give A Shift initiative. He has strong ideas about how every rider can help the industry.
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!
Episode 16 will be out on 5 March. Our guest will be Porsche Taylor, editor of Black Girls Ride magazine.
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.
