Dodging the Roadkill: An Open Letter From Your Motorcycle

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Dear Biker,

So, here we are.  You and me. 

I’ve been waiting for you as you visited me and the other models.  You were very careful in your selection as I watched you checking us all out. Going from one to another, gazing at our assets and marveling at our colors.  

I knew when you climbed on my back for the first time that we would be a good fit, but you were unsure.  You grabbed my throttles, you stood me up, you even took me for a spin to see how I could run.  I loved it when you “revved” me up at the stop light.
