Dodging the Roadkill: What Does It Matter?

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – When I decided that I was going to buy a motorcycle, I was ALWAYS going to buy a Harley Davidson.  I’m not paid to say that, it’s just what I wanted to do. 

Since then, I’ve ridden Hondas, Indians, Victory’s and a Triumph.  I would LOVE to ride a BMW, but I haven’t had the opportunity. 

Since I got started late in life, I wanted the Harley experience first.  I’m on my third one. 

In the meantime, it doesn’t make me any difference what YOU ride.  I have two great friends that I travel with and they’re Goldwingers.  It’s an AMAZING machine, but it doesn’t fit me.
