HFM019 : Ben Giese | Founder of Meta Magazine

I met Ben while attending Motos In Moab last May, I had been eyeing up his XS650 when we finally struck up a conversation. We were chatting about that bike when he brought up the fact that he “worked” at Meta Magazine and handed me a couple copies of which I of course immediately consumed hanging around at the camp site. Meta is one of those magazines that you can sit and page through a million times and not get sick of it, the stories are great, the pictures are beautiful and its printed on nice heavy paper. Meta is a moto magazine that should be on every two wheel addict’s coffee table.

It wasn’t until after the trip that I found out Ben was one of the founders of this kick ass magazine company. Being infatuated with entrepreneurs and motorcycles I knew I had to have him on the podcast and let me tell you Ben did not disappoint. We chat about everything from his upbringing with motos all the way up to the starting of the great Meta Magazine itself. Sit back, relax and get inspired because this one will get your wheels turning!

HFM009 : Astronautalis | Rapper | Motorcycle Enthusiast | Taste Of Freedom

This podcast has been amazing so far meeting new people in every episode, but this one is special to me. Andy AKA Astronautalis has been one of my all time favorite musicians for about 5 years. I followed him all over the interwebs (not a stalker), and one day I saw him posting something about getting a motorcycle from Harley Davidson, so what do I do I get a even bigger man crush on him and finally ask him to be on the podcast. He said yes!

Andy and I talk about all kinds of good stuff in this episode from the birth of his motorcycle passion all the way down to “Dewey The Good Samaritan”. The Harley Davidson “Taste of Freedom” Tour has placed the moto-bug in Andy’s head and it’s there to stay, and I’m  happy to have him on the show to tell us about it!

HFM008 : Alicia Elfving | MotoLady | Founder of themotolady.com | Blogger | Rider

In episode 8 of the Hold Fast Motors Podcast I chat with the talented Alicia Elfving from themotolady.com. I know most of you know who she is and most likely follow her work. Alicia and I had talked for awhile about getting together to do this episode and it finally all came together when both of our schedules jived enough to record it, we sat down together via the internet (as always) the Friday before I left for California on vacation. The talk lasted about an hour and let me tell you it was great, she is one of those people who you could talk to for hours and only think it was a few minutes. She tells us about the birth of the “motolady” website and her plans for the future of the brand. Her passion for motorcycles shines through everything she does, as well as her drive to show that motorcycling is not just a man’s world. The women she showcases ride as hard as most men I know, and usually look better doing it, with that being said listen up and enjoy the show!

HFM006 : Jordan Dickinson | Owner of Union Speed And Style | Fabricator | Builder

Today’s podcast is an interview with Jordan Dickinson from Union Speed And Style. Jordan has been a motorhead for quite some time now, I am happy he had time to chat with me as he has been a busy man getting his Born Free 5 bike ready. We chat about the build process and the adventure he had on getting his bike to the show in California. I always try to type up what we talk about on the podcast but its easier if you just listen and enjoy my friends.

Some photos of Jordan’s astounding work I stole from instagram
