120: Introducing the MotoNobodies Podcast

This week we have some very exciting news to share coming out of RDub Studios.  To help with this news, we invited Amp'd and Bacon to join us.  So the big news is that we have launched a second show!  It's going to be hosted by Bacon, Amp'd, and Jon.  The show is called MotoNobodies and will be a chat about the MotoNobodies meet-ups and the daily chats within the group.  The MotoNobodies group started back in 2016 and have been talking and meeting up since then.  The plan is also to bring in other MotoNobodies members to share in the chat.  You can find the podcast on iTunes, Podcast Addict, and your favorite podcast player.  Check out the website at www.motonobodies.com for links to social media and other information about the podcast.

119: Jon has an Iron Butt

Tonight Rich and Rico get the latest news from Jon on his past weekend trip with the Moto Amino Dragon Krew.  Jon took a little adventure and rode down to Key West, Florida.  On the ride down the plan was to complete the saddle sore 1000 Iron Butt Challenge.  This challenge is to complete 1000 miles in 24 hours or less.  There was a small delay in getting out of North Carolina as DaRula's chain broke while running about 70 mph on I-85 just south of Charlotte, NC. To answer the question - yes everyone doing the saddle sore did complete it, in fact they did 1119 miles in 22 1/4 hours!

After arriving at the hotel at 1:30 AM - back on the road by 9:30 AM to finish the ride to Key West, FL.  Did a little sightseeing and then headed back north and planning to stay at OIFVET22's house south west of Jacksonville, FL.  Before getting back to the mainland of Florida, Jon followed a recommendation from brother Zyon to stop for dinner at Hobo Cafe in Key Largo, FL.  Highly recommend the place if you are in the area.

The Dragon Krew didn't arrive until 5 AM.  After a little sleep and home cooked meal they were back on the road around 12:30 pm and Irish's brother-in-law escorted the Krew out of state.  Jon arrives home around 11:30 pm, but there was a small adventure with an NC state trooper.
