    Dodging the Roadkill: A Letter From My Motorcycle

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Just flipping through the mail the other day, and lo and behold, a letter from “Black Beauty.”  Hmmmm, let’s see what’s on her mind. 

    “Hey there!  Black Beauty here! 

    Thought I would drop you a line and discuss 2019 (from where I see it of course).  I would have sent you an email, but I don’t have a computer.

    I know you’re excited about the upcoming travel season so I thought I would share some observations with you since we’ll be spending a lot of time together (as always).

    My Two Cents: A Nation Divided

     

    My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – This article is strictly my opinion and does NOT reflect the opinion of the staff, management or sponsors of Clarksville Online and it’s partners.

    I’ve just finished watching President Trump’s speech from the oval office.  I watched it online and watched in horror the HATE that has consumed this country and is perpetuated by all of us in some form or fashion. 

    I’m no expert and I’m not trying to change the world, I’m just trying to enjoy life, my family, my grandsons and my faith. I want ALL of us to do good, to be healthy, happy and fulfilled.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Roadkill Nation

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – When I started this blog, it was for personal reasons.  I had just discovered this lifestyle and I was enthralled with it. 

    I was meeting a lot of amazing new friends, traveling thousands of miles, and just setting my life free from all the stress and anxiety of running a business for the last 20 years.

    I wanted to keep a journal of this experience, because not only was riding great therapy, but writing about it allowed me to bring it to life. 

    It’s not that I was looking for attention or trying to be an internet star, I was just hoping to connect with other bikers and soak up their experience as well as mine and that’s exactly what’s been happening here.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Happy New Year

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Here we are at the end of another year.  We will be flooded with New Year’s resolutions, and we might even make some ourselves. 

    The gyms will be packed.  The latest diet fads will be started and new relationships will begin.  Some relationships will end and a “fresh start” will be the order of the day. 

    I’ve been down that road so many times that I can’t even count. 

    I’ve reached the point in my life, that making change can occur at any moment.  I don’t need to wait on the calendar to decide if I need to shift gears in my life.  If I need to do it, I just do it, or at least TRY to.  It’s not always easy to make necessary changes.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Layered Up To Throttle Up

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Obviously old man winter has reared his ugly head in many parts of the country, so the days I get to ride are far and few between. 

    Today was one of those days.

    I haven’t had “black beauty” out for a good run in over a week.  On that day, the temps were in the low to mid fifties, but I was still trying to shake a bad cold and just didn’t feel it.  

    This week, we’ve had rain, ice and some snow flurries, so the best I could do was fire up the “beast” and take it for a quick spin around the neighborhood.  Not much, but it felt good.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Riding With Old Man Winter

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – One of the best things about sharing this journey through my blog is the INCREDIBLE people I’ve met and will continue to meet.  I LOVE hearing your stories and suggestions about YOUR biker journey.  

    Living in the south presents a different kind of winter.  We have days we can ride, but we might go weeks before we get a couple of days to do so.  Some of the brothers and sisters I meet here live in parts of the country where the winters are BRUTAL!

    So what do we do during these cold winter months?

    Dodging the Roadkill: The Loner In Me

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Once I finally owned a motorcycle of my own, I was like a kid in a candy store.  I had been “test” riding various models for two months, even to the point that the sales team at the dealership was saying, “Hell, he ain’t gonna buy no bike.”

    Oh, I was going to buy a bike, but when I was damn well ready.

    So now, I’ve got my Harley and my first trip was to Texas to visit some dear friends, one of whom had been a biker for most of his life.  He had helped me negotiate my way around the motorcycle buying experience, but he was a real mentor to me in my younger days as a salesman and I’ve always been grateful for him.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Bank Robbery

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – On Thanksgiving morning, I saddled up on my big black horse to take a ride before all the family get togethers. It was a crisp, but sunny morning, so I decided to take off on a route that takes me through parts of Tennessee and Kentucky. 

    I ride down Highway 79, then turn on state route 848.  From there, I pick up highway 102 to highway 25.  That takes me to highway 431 where I ride through Adairville KY, then on to Russellville, KY where today’s story takes place. 

    I’ve been riding all up through here for years, and if I’m just looking to get a few hours of “wind” therapy, it’s one of my “go to” routes, and in all my years of living and riding in this area, I NEVER knew that a famous bank robbery occurred here, by one of the most notorious gangs in American history.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Encouragement

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that I HATE the time switch.  I’m a warm weather fan, so moving the clocks back an hour just tells me that the cold weather is coming and it gets darker earlier. 

    But I don’t want to talk about the weather or the time switch.  If you’ve been following my journey then you know my story.  This motorcycle changed my life.  

    We’re approaching the holidays filled with family get togethers, turkey and dressing, Christmas music and Santa Claus.  A festive time of the year and a time to give thanks and count our blessings. But this time of the year can be a struggle for some of you and I know exactly how you feel.
