Dave Despain ??

Not sure where to post this question , but here it is.

Has anyone heard anything about my favorite Moto broadcaster Dave Despain and what he is up to ??

I would surely like to see him broadcasting motorcycle races again and maybe his own TV gig .

I met Dave the first time at the Chuck Jordan memorial 1/2 mile flat track in Marysville, OH. back in the early 80's .
He had ridden his new Goldwing with his new bride up for the event.
It was a night to remember

GD shame i cannot get MAVTV through my crappy cable company .
( Time Warner)
If I am willing to upgrade as they want me to do i might eventually get the channel.

I still think Dave is one of the best racing broadcasters ever.

Glad to read that. Too bad the picture quality on that channel sucks.
Hopefully that can improve.

He will be on my radio show next Wednesday nite at 8pm Eastern on Jan 29 if you want to get caught up on what he has been up to and all about his new gig with MavTV. About 20 minutes together.

www.nextmotochampion.com

Click on Talk Shows, scroll down to "Talking Motorcycles with Barry Boone" Dave Despain and the HD Motor Company will be on to talk about pro flat track and a bunch of other stuff.

I have ridden several Dualsport events with him in the southeast over the last few years. Great guy!

I had a "senior moment" on one ride, left my tail bag open, lost my wallet among other things. When I left the group to backtrack thru the woods he volunteered to ride with me to help look for it.

Great stories around the campfire at the rally's, but always interested in the other rider's stories also. Maybe the "journalist" in him? I think it is the "gentlemen" in him.

Good guy and I'm glad he is back doing what he loves!

I've watched a few of his new interview shows.
Saw King Kenny last night, it was great. A few good stories.
When he came to MotoGP they called him the 'Martian'.
There is also a bit of KR bonus footage on their site

Saw the KR interview as well. Good stuff. I have my doubts but hopefully this channel will turn into something like the old Speedvision. Oh and welcome back Dave.
