What better way to become a better rider and enjoy the two wheel lifestyle than to listen to the words and wisdom of those who are at the top of their riding game.  George's guests include some of the most accomplished riders and ride coaches in the world today where they talk all things motorcycles.

Brad Smith - Brad is founder and CEO of Braaap Motorcycles. His entrepreneurial spirit was revealed at a young age when he started Braaap from a backyard shed in his early teens. He imported his first 10 motorcycles at 16, and then lost all his money.

Most people would have given up, but not this guy.

He saved his money, then travelled overseas where he met with manufacturers face to face, with the goal of finding a manufacturing partner who could produce the bike he had designed.

After being laughed out of more than 50 factories Brad finally found a manufacturer who believed in him and his vision. And that turned his dream into reality to become what we know today as Braaap Motorcycles.

Occasionally we get to meet someone who really leaves an impression. And that is exactly what happened here when George met Brad and had the chance to chat with him about his life with Braaap Motorcycles. 


Braaap is an Australian motorcycle company that was founded in Tasmania in 2005. The Braaap story is very cool as they are a family business that is very clearly shaking up the motorcycle industry.

At Braaap (pronounced brarp), they design and develop their own motorcycles. R&D is also completed locally utilising Australian engineering standards.

They produce and assemble the motorcycles themselves, and use “Australian Engineering and global manufacturing efficiencies to produce a world class motorcycle that is backed by a Lifetime Warranty.”
