Savor our FTC disclosure's epic tale here ...
Number 28 (P1)
It's been almost a year since our last episode, so ... uh ... Robin is still in New Mexico carving the curves of the lovely 152 and treacherous 52/59. Tim is gettin' frickin' married! The Burleson twins are two and can count to ten.
Our interview features the incredible Sam Kok, a road racer from Madison, WI who competes primarily in the Midwest. He's won national and regional races on a superbike clocking speeds up to 180 mph. This interview is a two-parter! For round one, Sam discusses the heavy technical science behind both low and high speed performance.
Listener questions are a lot of fun this round. The trio goes toe to toe with "new, innovative" and unnecessary (overpriced) technology that is cornering ABS. Then, we advise a well informed friend about bike lifts vs. handy tables.
Announce, Acknowledge & Correct
People, some dude rode 100,000 miles in 100 days. That's 1000 miles per day, minimum. Respect. More on that here: His Name Is Chris Hopper
When meeting Sam Kok for the first time, one might not suspect he races a superbike with surgical accuracy. Moreover, his kind, thoughtful and safety-minded demeanor offers wisdom to not only advanced-level track day aficionados but new would-be riders as well. In this first of two conversations, Mrs. Mags explores the science behind skills needed for high speed safety (and thrills).
