Dodging the Roadkill: Close Calls

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I’ve had some close calls in my short time as a biker.  When I first started riding, I was pretty anxious out on the road.  I’m sure most of you were the same way.  Experienced bikers aren’t created overnight. It takes miles and miles of riding to develop great skills.  

I’ve found myself at the end of a ride, replaying some of the potential “close calls” of the day and wondering, “what if?”

Here are a few I still remember:

I was riding in Texas, four lane highway, 75 mph.  As usual, there was a knucklehead in the left lane, refusing to get in the right lane, and I passed him.  As I did, I just HAD to glance over and give the driver that look.
