    Dodging the Roadkill: Dear Mr. Truck Driver

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Don’t be misled by the title of this post. I’m not about to start “bashing” truck drivers.

    First of all, I appreciate what you do. This country can’t do anything without you. You spend long hours behind the wheel, many days away from your family, and you get no respect.

    You drive HUGE machines all over this country and have to deal with all the idiots out there. Trust me, I’m a biker, I know a thing or two about all the idiots out there.

    When I started this journey, I quickly noticed that EVERYBODY on the road, and I mean, EVERYBODY, is distracted. The cell phone will kill us all.

    Dodging the Roadkill: The Center Of Attention

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I can only speak for myself when I say that one of prime reasons for owning a motorcycle is it’s image.  Good or bad, the motorcycle has always represented the “coolest of cools,” and the “baddest of bads.”

    Marlon Brando, Peter Fonda, James Dean and my all time favorite, Steve McQueen, made the motorcycle the icon it is today.  You can’t deny that sitting on the back of a motorcycle and cruising through town, or pulling into the parking lot, is an amazing feeling.

    I’m not saying that I AM the coolest thing on two wheels, I’m just saying that in my mind, the ability to own a bike, ride a bike and represent the culture in some way, IS the coolest thing going.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Cindy’s On The Barge

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyHardin, KY – On a sunny Sunday afternoon, I was taking my wife on our weekly “2-up” ride. I had discovered some new roads that I wanted to show her and decided we would land at either Kenlake Marina, or Barkley Lodge. I had planned for us to stop for lunch at one of the two destinations.

    My route was to take highway 41 to Hopkinsville, then ride highway 164 over to Cadiz. It’s an absolutely breathtaking view of the Kentucky countryside with tree covered stretches of highway and open roads that only the Kentucky back roads can provide.

    We come out on highway 68/80 at the bridge. From there, you can get to Land Between the Lakes, or as we did, take off for Grand Rivers, KY.  It’s a great ride if you haven’t been.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Kentucky State BBQ Festival

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyDanville, KY – What started as a weekend motorcycle trip through the beautiful Kentucky countryside, turned into a discovery of one of the coolest festivals I have ever been to.  

    The Kentucky State BBQ Festival, in Danville Kentucky.   

    The Danville event looked like an interesting place to go and who doesn’t love good BBQ?  And this festival featured the rock stars of the BBQ world, so, you know, somebody’s got to do it!

    As a “foodie” myself, just the opportunity to meet Moe Cason and the legendary Mike Mills was enough for me, but seeing our Nashville friends, Peg Leg Porker was a real treat.  Learn more about this year’s Pitmasters here.

    My Two Cents: The Magnificent Seven, Part 2

     

    My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – With their wilderness adventure coming to a close, Clarksville businessmen Clay Powers and Thom Spigner, were getting ready to head home.  The nine day trip into the Alaskan wilderness had provided amazing thrills, great fishing and wonderful fellowship.  

    Their tour guide, Dr. Jimmy Sites, of Spiritual Outdoor Adventures, said this trip brought together an incredible group of men who bonded immediately.  “You could tell the moment they met, that not only were they experienced outdoorsmen, but men of God, who were excited about letting the spirit work in their lives at every opportunity.”

    My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – Thom Spigner and Clay Powers are great friends. The two Clarksville businessmen enjoy fishing, hunting, motorcycles, and just about anything that challenges them in the great outdoors.

    It was this love of adventure that brought the two men face to face with death, in the wilds of Alaska.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Mammoth Cave National Park

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyCentral Kentucky – On a recent trip to Northern Kentucky, I decided to take a quick “ride through” of Mammoth Cave National Park.  I had passed by it several times on previous trips, but had never ventured off to see it first hand.  If you’re a biker, (and you probably are) you HAVE to ride this magnificent park.

    Mammoth Cave National Park is located just of Interstate 65 at exit 48, (the Park City exit), that turns onto Ky-255.  It turns into Park City Road that joins Mammoth Cave Parkway.  

    The park is a U.S National Park that encompasses portions of Mammoth Cave, which is the longest cave system in the world.  The park’s 52,830 acres are located in Edmonson County Kentucky and is centered on the Green River.

    Dodging the Roadkill: The Bull & Thistle Pub

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyGainsboro, TN – On a beautiful Sunday morning in Tennessee, a group of my fellow H.O.G members gathered to take a ride to Gainsboro Tennessee.  Our destination?  The Bull & Thistle Pub.

    The ride was gorgeous, and the fellowship was awesome!  To say that this restaurant seems out of place in this tiny town of just over 1000 people, would be an understatement.  

    Located in Jackson County, it’s part of the Cookeville Tennessee Micropolitan Statistical Area, just fifteen miles from Cookeville Tennessee.

    Dodging the Roadkill: I Believe In Texas

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – The overwhelming devastation that’s hit Texas from Tropical Storm Harvey, has captured the hearts of the world.  I don’t think most people can fathom what’s going on there and how destructive this storm has been.  You’ve seen the video, the images, the stories.

    This isn’t what this post is all about.

    In my own little way, I just want Texas to know that we’re pulling for you and we’re helping with our money, our prayers, our manpower. Everybody loves Texas.  Everybody is helping.  Everybody is praying.

    Dodging the Roadkill: The South Union Shaker Village

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyAuburn, KY – On a beautiful Saturday morning, I did what I so often LOVE to do.  Go get a fresh hot cup of coffee, then take an early morning ride somewhere.  The mornings are so peaceful and cool, with very little traffic.  It’s perfect! 

    As I was watching the sun coming up, I was wondered which direction I would ride.  Then it hit me, that on my way back from Arkansas last week, I came through Kentucky, down highway 68/80.  I passed a familiar road sign to the “Shaker Museum.”  From Clarksville, it’s a beautiful ride, and as so many bikers have, I’ve passed it many times.

    I thought today would be the day I would visit to learn more.
