Episode 045 : Should Motorcycle Helmets be mandatory? What about ABS?


We start of this motorcycle podcast by discussing….riding motorcycles.  Really would you expect anything else.
Naturally this discussion turns into the Motorcycle Podcasters Challenge update and the upcoming trophy presentation.

AIMExpo – That is right Throttled will be at AIM….well hopefully, at least that is the plan.  If all goes right in the world Kevin will be at AIM on the final day of the expo to hopefully get some interviews and other great content for the show.

We then discuss Larry’s upcoming schedule and at least one special guest host…Ted from the Motorcycle Men.
As we are approaching 50 episodes and our 1 year show we begin reflecting on the past year…and what a great year it has been.
