81: Isle of Man and the TT with Benn Gilmour

You may recall from a prior episode where Rico caught a massive Yellow Fin Tuna.  The captain and owner of that boat turned out to be from the Isle of Man, which then set the wheels in motion for this episode.  Big thanks to Benn Gilmour for joining us and sharing what it's like on the Isle of Man and watching the TT.  Please check out Jackpot Sport Fishing and look him up if you are in Costa Rica.

Interesting tidbits from the conversation with Benn

  • Benn's father had an RG500 GP bike and has been involved with TT racers for over 20 years
  • Between a pub in Creg-ny-Baa and Hillberry is Benn's favorite place to watch the TT
  • Listens to the action on Radio TT on Manx radio
  • Follow the action with timing and scoring (web app)
  • Must try food on the Isle of Man:
  • John McGuinness is Benn's racer to watch this year, although Michael Dunlop will be tough to beat

    This week we have a guest to talk about riding vintage motorcycle exclusively and over long distances.  Joining Rico in studio this week, we have a great conversation to share with everyone.

    Devah Walkem

    • Rides a 1939 80ci Harley Flathead and a 1980 Sturgis Harley (only 1400 of these ever created)
    • Learned on a Yamaha Virago
    • Flathead upgraded from 45 to 80 cubic inch by her husband Wymand.
    • The bike had low center of gravity and was a great bike being short of 5'4".
    • Main reason Devah rides is the freedom and seeing new sights, and the feeling of different winds
    • Been riding for 35 years and has gone from Toronto to New Orleans as well as Toronto to Sturgis
    • Once ran out of gas in Oregon and once off the highway,  a gas truck pulled in behind and filled them up!
    • Tips for riding vintage bikes is to be mechanically inclined, have a good back, and be prepared to be looked at.
    • Tip for women is to carry a scarf that can be used for to keep you warm and cool.
    • Best state to ride in the USA is Utah in Devah's opinion.
    • Salt river canyon in particular is a great place.
    • Having ridden on the back for many years, she enjoys the different feeling of being a passenger, which allows for looking around more at the scenery and Nagigation (new term for us)
