Episode 33: Rick Sowry
Play • 2 hr 21 min

Rick is a long-time friend of mine that is responsible for getting me into riding off-road and also introducing me to long-distance riding. Rick and his wife tour two-up for their annual vacation each year which usually means a 5,000 mile plus trip out to the western U.S. His wife does the navigating and Rick does the "driving". Rick and I discuss the details of that relationship, along with how he kept his Triumph Tiger 800 running for over 100,000 miles. We talk about selecting his next 1200cc touring motorcycle of choice, what goes into certifying a "Bun Burner Gold" with the Iron Butt Association, and how to make long-term riding friends.
