    Dodging the Roadkill: Psychologically Spring

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – It’s time to SPRING FORWARD and I couldn’t be more excited. I am NOT a fan of winter and although it’s not officially spring, psychologically, I’m there.

    I hate January and February. 

    I guess the older I get, the more I can’t tolerate cold temperatures.  Plus, it cuts down on my “biker” time.  In my part of the country, Tennessee, we have some of the most schizophrenic weather you will find.

    One day it could be 60 degrees, then the next day, 25. We could have snow overnight,that would melt away to a fifty degree day by afternoon.

    Nashville Predators defeat the San Jose Sharks 4-2

     

    Nashville PredatorsSan Jose, CA – The Nashville Predators completed their final west coast swing tonight as they defeated the San Jose Sharks 4-2.  Viktor Arvidsson scored to goals in the winning effort.

    The Sharks present one of the hottest scoring teams in the NHL and the Predators knew they would have to keep them out of the net.  Juuse Saros started between the pipes tonight, giving Pekka Rinne a night off.

    But keep your eyes on Colton Sissons who’s been playing great hockey of late.  Tonight he put his Predators on the board first at 1:07 of the opening period, snatching a juicy rebound in front of the net and the Predators had the early 2-0 lead.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Life In The Left Lane

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I think we can all agree that one of THE most frustrating things about being on the interstate, is getting stuck behind someone holding up traffic in the left lane.   

    These drivers seem oblivious to their surroundings, or just flat out don’t care, or just don’t know any better.  It’s dangerous, rude and irresponsible. 

    Oh, and it’s frustrating too. 

    I’ve been driving a long time and I certainly don’t remember it being this way when I was younger, and I can’t seem to understand why it’s so prevalent now.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Don’t Be A Fool To Be Cool

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – In just the short time I’ve been riding, I’ve done some pretty stupid things.  Things I’ve thought about when I got home.  I didn’t do them on purpose, it was the nature of the beast as a rookie rider. 

    I remember the time I was feeling pretty cocky while traveling through Texas.  Speed limit is 75 and some good old boys in a pick up were acting like, well, two good old boys in a pick up.

    I took off around them in the right lane.  As I was giving them the all too famous “look” I quickly realized that I was drifting onto the shoulder of the road.  GRAVEL AND ALL!

    Dodging the Roadkill: Lending A Helping Hand

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – We all know that the biker’s code is to never leave a brother/sister behind.  Bikers are notorious for taking care of their own, but when total strangers step up to help a group of bikers, well, that’s pretty special.

    Just today, four of us were out riding the beautiful Tennessee countryside.  Just rolling and riding on a February day that gave us some decent weather to do so.

    We wound ourselves through Cheatham County, over to Pegram, then ultimately to Leipers Fork.  Just four guys who travel together and ride every chance we get.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Chronic Pain and Riding Motorcycles

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Chronic pain affects millions of people.  Normal everyday people.  By no fault of our own, and the older we get, stuff just breaks down, or wears out. 

    I’ve had two hip replacements, two wrist surgeries, and I deal with rheumatoid arthritis.  I didn’t ask for it, but that’s where I am in my ripe old age.  With titanium in my hips and my joints affected by the arthritis, it can get uncomfortable.

    I don’t complain about it because there are MANY people who struggle with more serious issues, even life threatening illnesses and I’m blessed to be relatively healthy at this stage of my life.

    But chronic pain is just that.  It’s a PAIN.  

    Chronic Pain.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Why Bikers Mean So Much To Each Other

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – When I decided to buy a motorcycle, I was just as interested in the “community” as I was the machine.  I had always heard what a tight knit brotherhood there was, but I had no idea it was this special. 

    The people I’ve met and the places I’ve seen has been incredible.  Makes me sad that I took so long to discover it, but there’s no point in looking back, I’m not headed in that direction. 

    Along the way, my motorcycle has provided me with opportunities to travel.  To see the world from a different perspective.  To actually ENJOY the open road and the experience it provides.

    Dodging the Roadkill: The Future For Harley Davidson

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – This is STRICTLY my opinion and I’m NOT an expert, so take this as you will.

    All of us have our favorite motorcycle brand, and we all have our reasons for it.  When I started riding three years ago, I was always going to ride a Harley.  I think EVERYBODY wants to ride a Harley at some point and I was one of them.

    I wanted to explore the culture and the people.  I was new to the lifestyle and it was all very intriguing. 

    There was no science to my decision.
