Random Thoughts From The Road
Ozark Rides
We’re a twice a month podcast where we talk about all things motorcycles and the biker lifestyle as well as riding around the Ozark Mountains of Missouri & Arkansas and well, just about anything else that might pop into our minds. We tend to babel from time to time. Our podcast are short by podcast standards, usually around a half hour in length. It turns out that we have a short attention span, and tend to get bored sitting around listening to long format podcast for an hour or two which severely cuts into our ride time.
The most asked question we get, and an earth shattering announcement.
In this episode Randy and I address a question I get at least a dozen times a day about riding in the Ozarks. Also, we have some shocking news that will make all of mankind question what’s real, and what’s not.
