Dodging the Roadkill: Why We Crash

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Anybody who has ever crashed on a motorcycle is lucky to have “lived to tell the tale.”   The one thing I’ve learned about laying it down is the questions about “what happened” never go away.  

“But I’m a good rider” we say.  “I wasn’t doing anything stupid” we say.  The reality is just that “shit” happens.  Both times I’ve laid a bike down, it was “pilot error.”  I simply was trying to do too much and lost control.  Bottom line. 

If you’ve ever been hit by another vehicle, or a deer, or simply something in the road, you have a clear cut explanation for your accident.  Most of the time, there are questions.  I second guessed myself for weeks about it.
