A great way to stay informed about riding the PNW.

News, calendar, deep dives, and hosts’ banter. Great job.

You lost me

You lost me on the April 2020 podcast due to the talk about carbon footprint. You made the suggestion to buy a electric car or motorcycle to reduce our carbon footprint and then in bullet point 10 you tell us to check our electricity usage at home to reduce our carbon footprint. Which is it? I use to listen to your podcast to get information about local motorcycling not environmental agenda.

Good entertaining listen

This is a Pacific Northwest focused podcast but most of the topics are general enough to be of interest to those of us who don't share their locale. The guys have a good broad interest in motorcycles and the culture that goes along with them.
