Dodging the Roadkill: Longer Days

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I’ve just come out of the Christmas holiday with much optimism.  I enjoyed great time with family and friends, and I’m expecting a new grandson most any day now. 

But what I’m most excited about is that we’ve just had the Winter Solstice which means, the days are getting longer.  For bikers, there isn’t anything more exciting than having more daylight to ride.

That doesn’t mean that the winter temperatures will cooperate, but hey, we’ve got gear for that.

I always feel rejuvenated after the holidays.  It’s a great time to “refresh” our own personal “browsers” and make plans for the coming days and weeks.
