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).

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?
