    Dodging the Roadkill: Weekend In The Smokies

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – One of the great things about being in Tennessee, is that the Smoky Mountains are just down the road.  This time of the year is probably the most popular time of the year to visit, because of the beautiful fall colors, but for bikers, it’s for the riding.   

    We left early Friday morning, and right off the jump, I pulled my back out.  It was just a quirky thing when I raised up, “BOOM” I had a knot in my back.  If you’ve ever had a problem with your sciatica then you know what I’m talking about.  It didn’t bother me while I was in the saddle, but as soon as I stood up, I could barely walk.

    GREAT!

    Dodging the Roadkill: Brotherhood

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I remember the day I bought my first Harley.  I took my baby for a ride and when the first approaching biker flashed the two finger salute, I knew I had entered the brotherhood. I was SO excited to acknowledge him back.  It was at that moment that I knew I was in for something special.

    I was more excited about the culture I was about to enter than I was about the 900 pound beast I had wrapped my legs around.  I desperately wanted to know more about the biker culture.  The people, the places, the bond.  After three years and over 95,000 miles, I can honestly say I have been BLOWN AWAY by this experience.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Riding Into Fall

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Living in Tennessee presents very distinct seasons.  Our winters are cold, our springs are filled with storms and tornadoes, our summers are the epitome of heat and humidity, but then there’s the fall.

    SWEET GLORIOUS FALL!

    Without question, this is my favorite time of the year.  It always has been, even before I became a biker.  But I never thought the fall would be so fabulous until I started riding.  

    I absolutely LOVE getting out early in the morning, hitting the coffee shop, then taking off with no particular destination in mind.  Temperatures in the mid fifties to low seventies are the absolute best.

    My Two Cents: Life After Abortion, A Woman’s Testimony

     

    My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – Shawna Spigner was a pretty normal 20 year old, growing up in Arkansas, with all the challenges and peer pressure associated with her youth. 

    Shawna was feeling confused and alone after her breakup with a long-time boyfriend, and made a decision that could have ruined her life.

    Shawna Spigner had an abortion.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Regaining My Mojo

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Bikers have been described a million different ways.

    Cocky, arrogant, fearless, dangerous, and on and on.  Let’s face it, you can’t ride one of these things and be a “scaredy cat.”  So what happens when you have an accident?

    Those of you who have had an accident, know what I’m going through and while my injuries were not that serious or life threatening, the psychological confusion has been a little weird.

    It was 2 1/2 weeks before I was able to pick up my motorcycle.  The day I picked it up, I took off for a ride.  It was 94 degrees, and I just cruised some back roads that I ride all the time.  Something familiar.  Something I had ridden a million times.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Recovering

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I want to thank you for all of your support over the past couple of weeks.  It’s been nearly three weeks since my accident, and I haven’t been able to sit at the computer long enough to post any updates.

    If you follow me on Facebook, then we’ve been able to stay in touch, but I’ve had to keep my leg elevated, so it’s been a bit of a challenge.

    First, let me say, that I’m not in as bad a shape from the accident as some people have experienced.  My injuries were minor, there were no broken bones, and I lived to tell the tale.  I have many friends who are in worse shape, so it’s hard for me to complain.  I HAVE missed being able to ride, but that changed this week.

    Dodging the Roadkill: The Week That Was

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – This has been a challenging week for me.  Let’s review shall we?

    Sunday:  Motorcycle accident.  Lost it in a corner.  Injuries to my leg, but nothing broken.  We load up me and the bike and get home, where I would ice my leg overnight.

    Monday (Labor Day):  Stayed prone most of the day, continuing to ice my leg, still a lot of pain and soreness, but this too will pass.

    Tuesday: Went to the Harley shop to get moving on the repairs.  $1100 worth of work.  Not too bad and it should be ready in about a week.

    I STILL haven’t seen a doctor.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Biker Down

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – From the very beginning of this journey, experienced bikers have told me, it’s not IF but WHEN you’ll have an “incident.” 

    Well, Monday was my day.

    I’ve dropped a bike four times in my brief riding career (3 years).  The only other time I went down was in Arkansas, when I overshot a corner and slid into a rain filled ditch.  No injuries and no damage to the bike.  I was muddy, but lucky.

    Today, I lost it in a corner and off the road I went, sliding into the brush and coming to a stop about six feet off the pavement.  I STILL don’t know how and why I lost it.  I was with a group of five other riders and we were just cruising along, when all of a sudden, I ran out of pavement.

    Dodging the Roadkill: The People I Meet

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – When I started this journey three years ago, the first thing I noticed about being a biker was the people I would meet.  As you know, the motorcycle is a magnet for attention.  There’s something about it that draws the attention of everybody.  

    As I would stop for gas, or take a break for something to eat, everybody had a motorcycle story.  It was and continues to be the best conversation starter on the planet.

    I’m known for taking “selfies” with the people I meet on the road, and emphasizing how “I love the people I meet on this bike.”  Coming out of a career in broadcasting where everybody was selfish and superficial, it’s been so refreshing to meet real down to earth “genuine” people.

    Dodging the Roadkill: To Each His Own

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – When I first started this journey, it was always going to be a Harley for me.  The last motorcycle I owned was a Suzuki 750.  I wanted to own a Harley and I wanted to get fully involved in the “biker culture” and a Harley was what I wanted.

    I also want to own an Indian.  The more I research this company and their products, the more I want to own and ride one.  Since I started this journey late in life, I won’t have the years and years of riding that many of you have had to try different bikes, or ride different models, so I will do my best to get a taste of them all.

    The point is, it doesn’t matter what you ride.  It doesn’t matter what brand you’re loyal to.  It matters THAT. YOU. RIDE!

    Motorcycle Riders.
