Motorcycle Experience on TSN

A message from Dave Hatch:


Well the wait and winter is finally over! May’s arrival means that it’s officially time to get out and ride and watch Motorcycle Experience on TSN.
 
This year we have changed our format slightly, added a new official charity for the show and picked up a new riding apparel supplier. First up, lets talk about the new show line up. Here’s what you'll see on this week's episode: On this jam-packed edition of Motorcycle Experience, we will kick off our 27th season on TSN by sampling Honda Canada's all new Africa Twin out in Victoria, BC. Then Norm Wells and I will kick start our 15th BMW Ultimate Ride down in Las Vegas, Nevada. This year we’ve rented a couple of GS’s from EagleRider and plan to double-down on some amazing scenery and roads out in the Nevada desert. Then, during our brand new “Red Adventure” segment, expert off road racer, Lawrence Hacking, will examine the exploding sport of adventure riding. On Shifting Gears, SMART riding instructor Clinton Smout tackles the sand and gravel and Senior editor Colin Fraser will wrap up the first episode by stopping by to discuss the art of shopping for a used set of wheels, all the while looking back at a 2006 Suzuki 650 bandit.

During many of these segments you’ll note that I’m now wearing the latest riding gear from Olympia Moto Sports. They came on board with us late last fall and, I gotta say, I really like how they design their products. The gear is really well made, fits me perfectly, and I like their price point. I was wearing one of their Expedition suits during the shooting of this year’s Ultimate Ride in Las Vegas and it was a perfect choice for the chilly (5 degrees every day) Nevada desert.

Also new for 2016 is our official charity, the Ride for Dad. I'm heading up to Whitehorse this summer to help host their TELUS Ride For Dad event on June 11th. I plan to be there for the whole weekend as this is a super worthy cause. To date, some 250,000 people have helped to raise over 18 million dollars in the fight against prostate cancer and now you can add me to the growing number of folks who want to help out.

There are 40 communities across Canada hosting a Ride For Dad this year so please sign up and join a ride near you. You will be glad you did.

Keep your right hand cranked!

Dave
