    Dodging the Roadkill: The Harley Debate

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Before I share my thoughts on Harley-Davidson, remember, I don’t profess to be an expert on motorcycles.  I’ve only been riding for two years, and my blog is about sharing my journey.  I learn new things every day and I meet great people along the way.  So keep in mind, these stories are my experiences and my opinions based on my limited experience.

    Although, I HAVE logged over 65,000 miles in those two years, so I am FULLY involved in this culture.

    When I decided to buy a motorcycle, it was always going to be a Harley.  You can read my story here.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Bikers, Brothers and Veterans

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I’ve been around the military my entire life.  As a boy, I spent my youth in Europe as my military family traveled the world.  I’ve had a deep rooted respect for the soldier and his family my entire life. 

    While I was never able to serve, my love and respect for those who have sacrificed so much for me is passionate.

    I live in a military community, the home to the 101st Airborne Screaming Eagles at Fort Campbell Kentucky.  I’m surrounded by the greatest group of soldiers in the world.  I can’t turn my head and not meet a soldier or a member of his or her family.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Life In The Left Lane

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I don’t know what it is about the left lane that people LOVE so much.  It doesn’t matter where I travel, they seem to be everywhere.  You know, the ones who think they own the left lane, or don’t care that they’re holding up traffic, or just flat out want to make life miserable for the rest of us. 

    Maybe we’re just more sensitive to it, or maybe we all have a bit of “road rage” in us that needs to get out, or maybe, JUST MAYBE, we know it’s the passing lane and your ass is in the way!  But at the end of the day, it’s dangerous and I wish people would realize that!

    Dodging the Roadkill: Solo Or Group?

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – When I first started riding a couple of years ago, I couldn’t wait to hit the road.  There’s something about traveling on a motorcycle, alone, with just me, the motorcycle, and God’s beautiful creation.  Within a couple of months of owning my first bike, I took off for Texas.  One of my dearest friends and mentors lives near San Antonio, and I couldn’t wait to get out there and show him my new bike, and of course, ride the amazing Texas back country.

    When I returned, I had several friends call me and tell me how “proud” and “amazed” they were about my trip.  I didn’t understand what the big deal was.  I’ve traveled many miles by myself and didn’t think anything about doing it on a bike.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Tellicafe

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyTellico Plains, TN – If there was ever a place that bikers love to visit, it’s Tellicafe in Tellico Plains, Tennessee.  As you come out of the Smoky Mountains, specifically from the Cherohala Skyway, there it is, just waiting for you to pull in and have a meal.

    The first two times I passed through Tellico Plains, I was not ready to eat.  What I DID notice was that the place was packed!  Motorcycles and sports cars were everywhere.  I thought, “that place must be good!”

    I was right!

    Dodging the Roadkill: Taking The Corners

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – “What’s the one thing you would tell a new rider on how to handle the corners?

    I posed this question on my Facebook page the other day and got a variety of answers.  All of them great.  The reason I did that was because I know a lot of VERY experienced riders follow my blog and I attribute my growth as a rider to heading the advice from all of them.

    I ride with experienced riders and they tell me things they notice, and I observe them and learn from them.  I love this journey so much, I want to be as good a biker as I can be.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Weekend In The Smokies – Part 2

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I spent another weekend in the great Smoky Mountains this past weekend, not so much for riding my Harley, but to ride my Harley with friends and family.

    The family were 3 cousins who hadn’t seen each other for over thirty years.  Family who had lost touch and finally were able to connect.  And it was the motorcycle that made that connection happen.

    Jay and Roy hadn’t seen Diann for years, and she was coming to Tennessee to ride the Smoky Mountains.  To get back up after falling on the Tail of the Dragon.  To hang out with her cousins she hadn’t seen for so long.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Fields Of The Wood

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyMurphy, NC – While riding through the beautiful Smoky Mountains last weekend, we came upon an interesting park.  It’s a religious themed facility named, Fields of the Wood, located in Murphy North Carolina.  As we were riding by, we decided to pull in and take a look. 

    Fields of the Wood is a biblical theme park that covers more than two hundred acres of beautiful valleys, mountains, streams and wooded areas.  Concrete markers are placed throughout the park depicting the Bible on stones in one of the most unique ways found anywhere.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Weekend In The Smokies

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I just returned from an amazing weekend in one of the most spectacular places on earth, the Smoky Mountains.  There’s not a biker on the planet who either hasn’t been there, or has it on their bucket list.

    Does the Tail of the Dragon ring a bell?

    I was asked to join a friend on this trip, Jay Christopher, who is a local firefighter and a very experienced biker.  I jumped at the opportunity, as he and I both love to ride, and ride, and ride, taking very little time for anything else.   Cheap hotels, good food, a good night’s sleep, then up and at ’em bright and early.
