Interview Brian Schaffran
Skidmark Garage

COMMUNITY GARAGE – Working on your bike with a bunch of guys that are also working on their own bikes. Having a beer. Hanging out. Helping each other work on bikes. Going for a ride afterward.

It’s about building our own little culture of tinkering with our old bikes – the camaraderie that is cemented once we overcome a hurdle – and celebrating each tiny victory along the way. Owning and riding a vintage bike means working on it. Wrenching on that bike in good company is a win/win.
– Brian Schaffran

Questions for Brian Schaffran:
• What is a community garage? Is it just for guys in tight pants?
• What are some of the bikes that get built in your facilities?
• How important it is for manufacturers to be on board

Sponsors – Smoke Out Rally.

Biker Questions
• What does it mean to “drop” a bike? I’m in the market for a motorcycle and I see this stated often. How bad is it if a bike was dropped? Will that ruin the reliability of it? Is this a colorful way of saying “wrecked”?

• Iron 883 or forty eight?

• Can I ride my Razor Scooter on the highway?

• Do guys notice if you put on 5 or 10 pounds? Or are they just concerned I have a heartbeat?

PODCAST SPONSOR – Atomic Bob and his Atomic Dice Studio Arts – Taking Monsters and Aliens to the next level of existence… ON3 Monster at a time.
