Episode 17 – James Bridge-Butler Chat

James joins us from England, where he has enjoyed motorcycle riding for many years. In this episode Phil and James discuss the internet forums and how they have shaped the motorcycling community. They also review James’ riding history, the various bikes he has owned and the camaraderie that most all bikers seem to have.

The bike forums discussed in this episode include;

  1. R1150R.net , which originally was a forum for that particular bike, but now includes many more models. 
  2. Visordown.com , which no longer is a community forum as it once was. These days it’s more of a motorcycling news magazine.

Two Part Podcast


Just this past week I published a Podcast interview with Wayne Bowyer, which was just the first half of our recorded conversation. On October 5 – I believe that is Monday – I have the second half of that conversation scheduled to publish. You don’t want to miss that second part!

Wayne talks about his ride from Staunton, Virginia to San Angelo, Texas back last year on his old R1150R BMW, plus we get into some more philosophical ideas about what makes people love to ride motorcycles and what we enjoy about it.

The next Episode after Wayne’s two-parts are published, will be a kind of surprise discussion between me and two fellows who have been riding far longer than I. The plan is to record that sometime over the next couple weeks around a lunch table somewhere near Marietta or Roswell, GA. It depends on where they choose for lunch that day. The two guys are Bob Cramer and C.A. Ernst. If you know them you won’t want to miss their stories, and if you DON’T know who they are you STILL don’t want to miss it. So keep an eye out here at Slablog for that episode coming up. If my count is right it should be episode 18.
