BDaB #011: Summer Riding, NINJA TURTLES, Eulogy for the Boiler Room

Hello again, fellow biker nerds! We’re releasing a few days late this time around, thanks to a half-dozen-plus conflicts of scheduling and other life events. This episode was recorded right after the 4th of July celebrations here in the Pacific Northwest USA, and we had a vast quantity of leftover booze on-hand. With Xander being unexpectedly absent due to a new job, we managed to get our good friend Basem from the hilarious Turtle Power Pod to join us in his place, along with our favorite Wannabe Wine Snob, Poppy Beaujolais. Due to the last-minute change-up, this episode is a bit more “off-script” than usual – although we never have a script in the first place so that’s not really anything new!

In our Road Talk segment, Jacob leads us into talk about Summer Rides, including our planned rides of the season and some tips for safety. We then segue into a discussion about fireworks and our country’s bizarre love for them. In our second segment, we wax nostalgic with our love of the great Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise! We close out with eulogy for yet another late iconic Portland bar, The Boiler Room.
