Welcome to Episode 124 of Chasing the Horizon, the podcast by, for and about motorcyclists. We take an in-depth look into the motorcycle industry in a way few other outlets do!
While at Overland Expo East (remember Episode 120 with Eva Rupert?) I came across Tom Medema from Rally for Rangers. He was fairly swamped with folks at his booth every time I walked by, so I left my business card and said, “Call me – I want to get the word out!”
He did, and now we’ve got the whole story behind Rally for Rangers for you – and more! Tune in now and subscribe to get Tom’s story and a whole host of other stories from motorcyclists all over the world.
