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.
