84: OBX Bike Week and Motorcycle Podcasters Challenge 2017

After a great show with the next generation, Jon is back on the hot seat to talk about his riding over the past few days.  Jon met up with Rich and Micah for lunch on Friday at Hwy 55 Burgers.  Then on Sunday Jon took a little ride out to Kitty Hawk, NC to meet-up with Dave and attend the OBX bike week.  All in Jon rode 975 miles and is about to crack 13k on the Spyder.  With two more weeks before the one year anniversary, will he crack 14k, 15k, or 16k?

OBX Bike Week:

  • Visited three light houses (Cape Hatteras, Bodie Island, and Currituck)
