Jay Leno's Garage Visit!

Pat and I paid a visit to Jay Leno's Garage after he invited me to come and be interviewed for a "Book Club" feature on his website.

We got there a few minutes early and Jay wasn't there yet. Bernard, his mechanic greeted us and told us it was okay to look around. The place was amazing to say the least. There were a few different buildings jammed packed with old cars of every kind and some nice motorcycles too.

Jay arrived and was really nice. He showed us around for a few minutes before we went into the "library" where he films the interviews. He was actually excited about my book and seemed to really like it. We chatted for a bit and did the interview. He even had me sign the picture of my cannonball bike, Effie for him.
After, he showed us some more cool stuff. We stayed for a bit and kicked a few more tires with him and took off for the airport for our flight home.

It was a great experience and I hope to be able to go back and take a closer look at some of his cars. Great that he's "one of us".

Jay Leno's Garage Book Club!

I got a call a few weeks ago from my old friend Jay Leno, who I had met years ago when I was the co-editor of a little women's motorcycle magazine called, "Harley Women" magazine.

He loves my book and chose it to be included on his website Book Club. Very cool! I will be interviewed about the book in a few days and will post when the the segment appears on Jay's website.

Thanks Jay!
