Justin Long

Episodes 15 - Current

Justin started riding in 2009 and his only regret is that he didn't start sooner.    His first ride was a venerable 2007 Kawasaki KLR 650.  After deciding that he'd like to ride something a little bigger, he moved up to a 2012 BMW R1200GS.  (Later, he decided he wanted cruise control, and to not spend $800 every time the bike was serviced, so he bought a 2015 Yamaha FJR.)

He found the Iron Butt Association website shortly after and quickly began planning a Saddlesore 1000, completing that in 2013.  He has completed several multi day rallies and was drawn for the 2017 Iron Butt Rally.

Justin joined Mike as a co-host of Long Riders Radio in November 2014 and took over as the solo host in March 2015 upon Mike's departure.


He also recently decided that he should actually update this bio after having it sit blank for more than a year.

Mike founded Long Riders Radio in April 2014 after catching the long distance riding bug.  He took a brief hiatus from riding in 2015, but it didn't take him long to realize how much he missed it.
