Dodging the Roadkill: Confidence

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – When I bought my first Harley last year, it had been over thirty five years since I had ridden a motorcycle.  It was a Suzuki 750 and I was young and stupid.  It’s a wonder I lived to tell the tale.

My venture into motorcycle ownership is documented here.

The first thing I did was take a safety course at my Harley Davidson dealership.  When I straddled the bike for the first time and took off around the course, I realized that it was no problem.  I was 63 years old and you wonder about a lot of things, especially balance, and strength.  

I was hooked.
