This Motorcycle Life is a Bent Star production hosted by Bruce Philp and recorded for broadcast in Canada. Philp explains that the reason he started This Motorcycle Life was to highlight the ways motorcycle riding goes beyond just being a biker. To Philp, being a motorcyclist means instantly becoming a member of a group and family, where every rider is your "brother" or "sister." Additionally, he thinks that riding a motorbike adds something special to everyone's life and that every biker is a philosopher.

This Motorcycle Life has more than 20 episodes, each with a runtime of one to two hours. Each episode introduces a new guest with a different reason for wanting to go motorcycle riding and a different perspective on what it means to be a motorcyclist. For instance, in Episode 21 titled "Fear Itself," the main topic focuses on how to manage your fear. Clinical psychologist Dr. Mark Barnes explains that managing fear is a skill that can be learned, with many motorcyclists riding their motorcycles as a way to overcome their fears and deal with stress.

Each episode had over 3,000 listeners and is available on the This Motorcycle Life website, SoundCloud, Apple Podcasts, and several other podcast platforms.
