HFP020 : Born Free Peoples Champ 4 Builders | Brian Durk | Charlie Dorius | The Palace | Minnesota Bike Builders

Brian Durk and Charlie Dorius are two of the most original and talented bike builders I know, they introduced me to a whole different world of Motorcycles and were the gateway to a group of solid friends that inhabit “The Palace”.  When I heard they were teaming up to build a bike for the #peopleschamp4 I knew they were going to kill it. Its not just them either, they’ve brought in a little help from everyone at The Palace and other friends to make this thing a reality. I really can’t even begin to describe with words what they have going on there, so I will let the podcast do it for me! I hope you have a sense of humor because this conversation gets weird! I will update this post as the build continues!

Pretty excited to see what these two wizards whip up from the depths of the palace for the #peopleschamp4 Go give them a follow, they are responsible for some of the best times I've ever experienced! ➡➡@speed_club ⬅⬅ ➡➡@charliedorius ⬅⬅ #bigtwincity #choppers #choppin #speed_club #minnesota #ninetynineco #bornfree

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!

HFM017 : John Christenson | Oil And Ink Expo | Photographer

John Christenson in the Oil & Ink studio

I started this podcast with the hopes of bringing people together to tell the stories of how motorcycles effect their lives and I would never had thought that I would make so many friends during the process. John is one of those friends now, we connected via the amazing world of Instagram and from then on we had talks of getting together to do this interview. It took last years Handbuilt Motorcycle Show in Texas for us two Minnesotans to finally meet, after a beer or two and some great conversation I knew I needed to have him on the show, so last week we chatted it up over the phone and he filled me in on how the Oil and Ink Expo came to fruition.

Oil & Ink Studio

 

I’m experimenting a bit with shorter shows, so let me know what you think? I have been trying to keep them closer to the hour mark to make it easier on the guests as most of them have quite busy schedules. Enzo, my slightly needy border collie also decided to have a few words in this episode so there’s that, if its not construction work, family members popping over or my dog having a fit it just wouldn’t be an authentic HFMpodcast.

Below is the schedule for the 2015 tour of the Oil & Ink Expo get to at least one of them you will not be disappointed.

HFM014 : Cam Elkins | Stories of Bike | Videographer

I had the pleasure of chatting with Cam Elkins the founder and operator of the amazing video series Stories of Bike. The videos are stories of motorcycles and the people who ride them simple as that, but the videos are far from simple. Cam brings out the emotions behind the motorcycle and the reasons people ride them.

Cam resides in beautiful Australia, so we had to do some finagling to get the time zones to work out but we made it happen and what a great conversation it was! He tells me the story of how Stories of Bike came to be, why he does it and where he plans to take it.

Cam shoots these videos on a minimal set up, but you would never be able to tell, because they look as if they came out of a Hollywood studio. He also has his brother create matching musical scores to each video, which just adds a whole different level of awesome to these motorcycle films. I’m done moving my fingers, go have a listen to Episode 14 of the Hold Fast Motors podcast and learn a little about how to use your passion to create something amazing!

This is my favorite episode so far really a touching story and the bike is absolutely stunning as well!

HFM013 : Lanakila MacNaughton | The Womens Motorcycle Exhibit | Photographer

Its not often you see a collection of photos of women who acutally ride, unless you are at one of Lanakila MacNaughton’s exhibits. The Womens Motorcycle Exhibit is her way of presenting all the wonderful women who ride various styles of motorcycles to the world. Its hard to put into words how great her work is, so I figured I would let her tell you!

HFM012 : ICON | Joe Gustafson | ICON1000 | Containment Conflicts Film

Happy Belated Halloween everyone!

I’ve always wanted to get the guys from ICON on after seeing the amazing bikes they built for the ICON 1000 series and of course the fantastic riding gear they produce, so getting to talk to Joe Gustafson their marketing and communications specialist was a great opportunity! The best part was that we got to chat the same day they released their new film Containment Conflicts! We get a taste of what it was like filming the new Zombie / Moto flick, and some perspective on why they made it. Joe and I also chat it up about why we ride what we ride and how ICON stands out among riding gear. This was such a great interview I can tell just from talking to Joe that ICON has got a great crew working for them and that they will keep producing ground breaking products in the motorcycle industry.

If none of this rings a bell to you then listen up and enjoy the magnificence that is Paul d’Orléans.

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!
