Why did David Bell publish this paperback book for his avid readers?

"I put this together so that I could share with others the places I love to ride in the Ozarks. I want others to enjoy this wonderful riding area as much as I do," he said.

"Inside these pages you'll find great places to ride to, great roads to ride on, and wonderful places to stop, get off your bike, and just enjoy the views."

Why did he start CTO back in 2011?

"I had written lots of stories for national motorcycle magazines about the Ozarks over the years. I wound up with lots of stories and photographs left over."

Bell has written for Rider Magazine, Ride Texas, RoadBike Magazine, as well as other general interest publications. The state of Arkansas has hired Bell to keep its own motorcycle vacation guide updated over the years.

But he wanted to reach riders directly. He wanted to share his photos and stories directly with other riders.

"My goal was to share my personal stories and pictures with riders who also wanted to cruise the Ozarks."

The first issue was centered on the quirky tourist town of Eureka Springs, but quickly he found readers were more interested in exploring all over the greater Ozarks region. So Bell changed the focus to an Ozarks-wide vision, and the rider's guide has grown every year since.

Readers contact David directly to tell him how much they enjoy his magazine.

"I think that readers realize this magazine is a labor of love, and that is who they want to get advice from about cruising the Ozarks... from an Ozarks' native who wants to share the area he loves."

He keeps it a high-quality glossy publication because he wants it to stand up to the competition.

"I want to be able to hold my head up when readers pick up my magazine alongside any other national motorcycle magazine," he said. "I want it to be something that they'll want to keep and not just throw away."

He has come across readers who have kept every issue; many have called to fill in voids in their collection.

"I think that is because they want to use it as a reference for planning their trips to the Ozarks."

This perfectbound paperback anthology has more than 112 pages of editorial content -- rides, destinations, select ride maps, and the history of the Ozarks in full-color splendor.

Get a vintage set of rare motorcycle prints. These limited-edition black & white prints will be available online only at Shop.CruiseTheOzarks.com!

We discovered these three classic vintage prints, featuring Harley-Davidson motorcycle riding groups who enjoyed 'Cruising The Ozarks' in and around Missouri towns of Springfield, Lebanon, and Kansas City back in the early 1920s through the 1940s.

The black & white images are sharp and clean. These classic photos were shot with what is called a "banquet" camera -- a device which allowed people to pose in a long straight line while the photographer swiveled his camera to capture a crystal-clear print in sharp focus.

The Lebanon, Missouri motorcycle riders are shown lining up in front of an old garage (our favorite!). The Kansas City and the Springfield, MO, motorcycle riders are lined up along downtown city streets. The large size of film that was originally used back in the 1920s captured exact details of the brick buildings complete with classic advertising and company signs. All three images evoke a simpler time... and can you imagine how good those bikes were built to ride down those rough Ozarks roads back then! We were stunned when we stumbled across these beautiful prints. The photographs, which had been locked away for years, forgotten and dusty, had been tossed and turned, covered with wrinkles and crinkles and scratches marring the faces and bikes of those motorcycle enthusiasts proudly showing off their Harleys.

But now these prints have been painstakingly, carefully restored to their former glory and have been turned into works of art, recapturing a slice of motorcycle history you won't find anywhere else. We knew we just had to share these with readers of Cruise The Ozarks. We negotiated and secured the rights to offer our readers this special limited-edition set of professional prints of your own. But you must act now because supplies are limited.

You get all three black and white prints delivered right to your door. They come carefully packed in a sturdy mailing tube to protect your prints. You can display them as is, you can laminate them yourself, or you can have them mounted and framed by a professional frame store in your own hometown. We pay all postage and tracking costs through the US Postal Service, direct to your door.

These will look great in your "Man Cave" or in your garage. Hell, take them to work and mount them on the wall and show them off to the boss and co-workers! You'll be one of the lucky ones who owns them, because of this simple fact: whave secured the rights to sell just 1,000 sets of these prints at this special price. Once they are sold, this special price offer will be withdrawn.

The cost for each 3-piece set is only $89.00. Buy one set for yourself, and consider giving other sets to your friends as gifts. They make the perfect keepsake! But you must act fast and do it now, or you will miss out at this special price. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.
