Picture hurtling yourself down a packed dirt straightaway, then pitching yourself wildly into a sliding sideways turn, throttle pinned open and one foot skimming the ground like an outrigger. Or as Jesse Janisch calls it, "Saturday during race season for 15 laps of joy and terror." Find out what it's like to race in American Flat Track in Episode 41. (Photo by Scott Hunter for AFT.)
New Jersey - a fabled land that isn't New York City, but is close to it. Plus you're not allowed to pump your own gas and it's nearly impossible to make a left turn. Author, humorist and cigar aficionado Jack Riepe is here to help us navigate the Turnpike in all its glory. (um... caution? contains conversation that may not be suitable for some listeners)
If you take an adventurous Welsh woman, put her on a 300cc adventure bike packed with aftermarket accessories and parts and turn her loose in the USA, you get somebody exactly like Jenny Morgan. Find out about her travels, both on- and off-road, and how she makes it happen on a tiny motorcycle.
Episode 42 will feature photographer, Iron Man and race fan Paul Phillips. It will be out on Monday, 14 January 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.
