Dodging the Roadkill: Mistakes That Make Me Better

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – It’s been an interesting couple of months for me, to say the least, when it comes to commanding my motorcycle.  After the wreck, I hopped back on the beast, but didn’t feel as confident as before. 

I was particularly “skittish” into the corners.  I’ve determined that the accident was a brief lapse of attention that caused me to lose sight of where I should be looking, and off the road I went.

Fast forward to this past weekend where I was going to ride the Smoky Mountains and all the exciting roads that we all love to ride.  My mind kept telling me “watch out for the Dragon” or “you better take it easy, you don’t want to go down again.”  All these negative thoughts that in reality can REALLY cause a problem if you don’t have the right mindset.
