    Dodging the Roadkill: A Day Trip To West Tennessee

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Some of the best times I’ve had on my motorcycle have been in my own back yard.  Living in Tennessee presents me with beautiful countryside, navigated on back country roads for miles and miles.  I’m able to cross up into Kentucky, or down to Alabama and the roads and beautiful scenery just keep unfolding in front of me.

    When I bought my first Harley last year, I traveled to San Marcos Texas. The first leg of my trip was to travel down Highway 79 and keep off of the Interstate.  I discovered beautiful roads, amazing countryside, quaint little towns and miles and miles of open road.

    Before I knew it, I was in Memphis.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Colorado – Riding up Mount Evans

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyColorado Springs, CO – On the first day of my trip to Colorado, my crew and I awoke to the beautiful Pike’s Peak that overlooks our hotel.  Right off the bat, I could tell this was going to be a good day.

    Preparing for the change in temperature to be expected during the day, my common question was, “just how cold does it get up there?”

    A beautiful ride to get to our destination, we found ourselves in Idaho Springs before we headed to the top. 

    Mount Evans is the highest summit in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains.  The 14,271 foot peak is located in the Mount Evans Wilderness.

    My Two Cents: A Night With The Jackson Generals

     

    My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterJackson, TN – During a family vacation this summer, my family and I were blessed to meet a remarkable young man named Dusty Stanfill.  He was born facing challenges that most of us couldn’t imagine.  You can read his story here. I remember that all he talked about was his beloved baseball team, the Jackson Generals.  

    Since returning from vacation, I had been trying to figure out a way to pay him a visit, so what better way than to surprise him at a baseball game.  So, working with some fabulous people at the Jackson Generals, I straddled the Harley and took off.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Riding Skyline Drive in Canon City Colorado

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyCanon City, CO – During my first trip to Colorado, one of the things that I had to see, was Skyline Drive in Canon City Colorado.  After riding up and over the Rocky Mountains, and Mount Evans, I didn’t expect this to be much of a trip.

    I was wrong.

    We left Colorado Springs and headed down highway 115.  It was early in the morning, so there was little traffic, but we could tell it was going to be a hot day.

    The ride to Canon City was different from the others we had taken earlier in the week.  The scenery was more “brown and tan” as opposed to the beautiful green colors of the mountains.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Riding the Rockies

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyColorado Springs, CO – I just returned from my first trip to Colorado.  What an experience!  I’ve never seen such beautiful country!

    One of the many day trips I took was through the Rockies.  It took me a couple of miles before it REALLY hit me that I was actually in THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS!  Almost a surreal experience.

    The first thing I noticed was the smell.  The cool crisp mountain air filled with the fresh smell of pine trees.  It’s a beautiful entrance to one of the world’s most famous landmarks.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Saltgrass Steakhouse

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyColorado Springs, CO – I traveled to Colorado recently and after a couple of hard days of riding, I was yearning for a good steak.  The Saltgrass Steak House was just down the road from where I was staying, so I had to give it a try. 

    They refer to themselves as “the original Texas Steakhouse” and after slicing into my rib-eye, I could understand. 

    Their story dates back to the 1800’s, according to their website, when millions of Longhorns roamed freely throughout Texas.  With the taste for beef becoming a newfound favorite in the North, Texas ranchers prospered as never before.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Colorado

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyColorado Springs, CO – I have always wanted to take a trip out West.  This year I got my chance when I was invited to join a Tennessee couple who venture here each year.

    Stephen and Rosemary Walker are a true motorcycle couple.  They both love to ride, and through a mutual friend, we connected and they invited me to ride along.

    It took me two days to arrive in Colorado Springs.  I traveled through Paducah Kentucky, to St. Louis MO, and on to Columbia MO, before a severe thunderstorm caused a 90 minute delay.

    After resuming the trip, I made Topeka Kansas for the night.

    My Two Cents: Riding for Cody

     

    My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterColorado Springs, CO – I’m currently on a motorcycle trip to Colorado.  I’ve joined a husband and wife who make this trip each year and invited me to come along.

    Stephen and Rosemary Walker are motorcycle enthusiasts who love to travel and this year, their trip took on a different purpose.

    Rosemary “Dusty” Walker never imagined she would be taking this kind of motorcycle trip.  A trip to remember a young man who lost his life way too young.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Pop’s Travel Center

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyLacon, AL – Along Interstate 65, between Huntsville and Birmingham Alabama, just off exit 318, sits a welcome site.  Pop’s Travel Center.  It’s the only business at this exit and it’s well worth the visit.

    I discovered this place quite by accident.  

    While riding my Harley back home to Tennessee last year, I was getting “drowsy” and had a bit of an appetite, so the next exit, 318, I pulled off to take a break.

    I was greeted by a Stuckeys and a family restaurant.  Having grown up visiting Stuckeys when we traveled,  it was a welcome site.

    Pops Travel Center is owned by husband and wife, Mary and Jerry "Pops" Pierce.

    My Two Cents: Remembering Pastor Jimmy Terry

     

    My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – Pastor Jimmy Terry of Tabernacle Baptist Church, passed away last night after a long battle with cancer.  He immediately walked into the arms of Jesus.

    Jimmy Terry was like a father to me.  

    I’ve known Pastor Terry for over 30 years, in the beginning, through WJZM radio station where he produced a weekly church program.  When I became the owner in 1994, our relationship grew closer.
