listener feedback

Matt Hoffman wrote us on facebook looks like he's been a listener for a while i see that he had written Jeff and Greg. he says he 1was unsure about the show after Jeff and Greg left but he says he likes the direction the show is going. He says he would like to see the show cover topics from mild to wild. he says he loves the hardcore stuff but those days are behind him and he's more into scenery and technique with 33/35s and the ability to roadtrip if he wants.

Thank you matt for writing in we appreciate any and all feedback we are working on several topics and hopefully some great interviews with industry people very soon. Forrest and Bradley have been talking about a possible meet and greet or a gathering of some sort but that's too be determined.
