Other Word Computing has made a generous donation of storage devices to Popp Over America. I will be shooting HD video on three cameras while on the road, so I will have a lot of data to manage and store. I count on this company at my day job at the Sonic Arts Center for when I need a replacement Macintosh hard drive, RAM, or an enclosure sent fast . They also have great prices and incredible customer service. A no brainer for all of you computer storage and upgrade needs. OWC – Quality Solutions. Expert Support. Since 1988.
Radial Engineering is providing JS2™ Passive Microphone Splitters for Popp Over America. I use a ton of their gear at the Sonic Arts Center where I work, and I can’t say enough about the quality and fidelity of their products. They are the Swiss Army Knife of the sound world. You have a complicated audio split or extension you need to make? Radial has you covered, and they do it with tank-like durability.

Michelin is providing Pilot Road 4 tires and a collection of accessories for Popp Over America. In the pilot episode when I am riding in the rain (@10:30) and I say “…the best tires money can buy to keep me stuck to the road” I’m referring to the Pilot Road 4s. They are unbelievably assuring in the rain with excellent grip in both wet and dry conditions. Michelin – A better way forward!
Aria Helmets America is supplying a Vector-2 helmet for my 48-state ride. I have worn their helmets my entire life and I will not wear anything else. They are truly the finest helmets made, and I am humbled by their sponsorship of Popp Over America as they have already protected my brain for many years! The Arai Difference: It’s The One You Can See, Feel, Touch. And Trust.
Corbin Seats has made a generous donation of a Gunfighter and Lady Saddle for my VFR800. I have used Corbin seats for many years and I am honored by their sponsorship of Popp Over America. They truly are the “World’s finest motorcycle saddles since 1968.” Made in the U.S.A. I thank you, and my butt thanks you Corbin!
D’Addario not only contributed guitar strings and a collection of accessories to Popp Over America for the pilot episode, but they are continuing their support by providing even more strings and goodies for the 48 state tour. I’ve used their strings since I was a little punk learning to play guitar back in 1977. I’ll be using their EXP17 Coated Phosphor Bronze Wound Medium strings on my Gibson SJ-200 Standard.
Hoffee Cases is sponsoring Popp Over America with a big-hearted donation of a custom carbon fiber acoustic guitar case as well as design assistance. Hoffee is committed to offering the best protection possible for your instrument. When I was doing research for cases, Hoffee stood out as the only possible choice for my trip- lightweight and strong. Made in the U.S.A.
