In a follow up to last week’s episode, we discuss tire pressure monitoring systems and offer up a couple of easy options. Darryl VanNieuwenhuise tells the story behind Cyclops Adventures, as well as explains the Cyclops TPMS. And Chris Keeble rides a highly customized Indian motorcycle around Australia, turning each weekend in to a theme ride, looking for churches, graveyards, water or a particular color. At 60 years old, she’s a firm reminder that age is just a number as she plans her trip around the world.
Moto talks by some of the most informative and witty adventure travellers and authors in the world. Conversations brought to the table this month include common mistakes that motorcycle travellers make and should adventure be planned or happen spontaneously.
What could possibly go wrong when flying your motorcycle in to Panama? Spencer James Conway and Cathy Nel picked up their bike, had their paperwork in order, and were on their way again when they ended up the targets of a criminal sting. After a harrowing experience, they barely got out of Panama. And we also talk about tires, not about the actual tires themselves, but tire facts. What causes tires to cup? How much pressure can you run? How do you tell how old your tire is? We talked to a tire expert and got all these these answers and more.
On some of our past Rider Skills episodes you’ve heard the voice of Coach Ramey Stroud, who headed up the Cascade Endurance Centre rider training complex on his ranch in Oregon. After a horrific racing accident when he was 56 years old, he was told that he would never walk again. But, years of determination and perseverance proved doctors wrong. He finished the race that had broken his back, rode around the world on his motorcycle with a sidecar, and started his training centre. Last week, Coach Ramey Stroud passed away, a tremendous loss to the riding community. But, his voice and teachings live on for many, including in the minds of those he has influenced through training, and for us and our listeners on Adventure Rider Radio.
Bill Cagnacci is an Australian motorcyclist who recently took a trip with RawHyde Adventures. There were 19 motorcycle riders plus a support crew headed to Mexico. But, because of a particularly nasty winter, they were blocked by snow and unable to continue on to their original destination.

The panel discusses travelling on the cheap, mainly in Mexico, Central and South America. And everyone has memorable riding experiences in their life that stand out more than others. We talk about those special moments and share photos that were taken at the time.
