007 – Jim Hyde – RawHyde Adventures

Jim Hyde of RawHyde Adventures


RawHyde Adventures
When I was first becoming interested in adventure motorcycling – watching BackCountry Discovery Route videos, and scouring YouTube for new ways to play with motorcycles it seemed Jim Hyde and RawHyde Adventures were ubiquitous. It’s no surprise considering how ingrained he is in the adventure community in America, and for that matter the impact he has had.

If you are unfamiliar with Jim Hyde he is the Owner of RawHyde Adventures, “The premier destination for Adventure Riding.” They have trained thousands of riders at their 4 training facilities located in California and Colorado. They also conduct tours all over the US and world, as well as hosting several unique riding events each year. He has a concept of playing hard in the dirt during the day and fine dining at night. This is a concept that many find to have a GREAT appeal.

I was fortunate enough to take Intro To Adventure and Base Camp Alpha in September 2015 and have kept in touch with the crew since. My current ride, a 2017 R1200GS, was purchased from them at the end of last year.

We stopped by to help the crew set up for their Adventure Days event earlier this year. While there I was able to enjoy a few minutes chatting with Jim and he shared some entertaining stories. He is always a great story teller, so I hope you enjoy today’s episode as much as I did talking with him.

In today’s episode we talk about:

  • The definition of a ‘Re-Entry Rider’,
  • Jim tells his own re-entry story,
  • The RawHyde story,
  • The part Harley Davidson riders are playing, and
  • The future of RawHyde Adventures.

2018 Will Be a Year of Travel

Next year is going to be a year of travel. 
Starting some point between the middle of February and the end of March/beginning of April we are getting on the road to see the other 49 states. Yes living in Hawaii is idyllic, but not the best for a person with motorcycle wanderlust. So, we decided to spend a year on the road (more or less).

The Plan
We’ll pack up the house, rent it out and get on the roads in the US for a year or until we change our mind:
– it’s grows old or uncomfortable (crotchitiness sets in),
– it gets too cold (this is my actual fear),
–  or we decide to switch to international travel (this is my hope!)

The Goals
– To see the National Parks
– To see many National Monuments
– To do something in memorable in each of the states (If could be simply a memorable meal)
– To see family lots
– To see LOTS of caves and caverns (Jean)
– To enjoy several motorcycle events both on and off-road (Greg) Continue reading 2018 Will Be a Year of Travel

001 – Greg Pentecost: Creator of Traveler on Two Wheels

Since I would not ask anyone to do something that I would not or have not done myself and this is an interview based podcast this first episode is about me, Greg Pentecost. The interviewer is good friend Jason Baguio, a veteran podcaster.

These are portions from our interview for his podcast “How You GYST”. (GYST is Get Your Stuff Together).

In it we discuss how I got my first motorcycle, got into motorcycle touring, and what it has evolved into in my life and why I created this podcast. We also discuss some of the life benefits I receive from touring.
