Dodging the Roadkill: Memories

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – As you know, there are SO many great things about being a biker. 

Since I began this journey, I’ve tried to share as many experiences as I could along the way.  I feel as though many of you who have been longtime bikers would appreciate the perspective of a “new” rider and it would take you back to your beginnings.  But better than that, if offers me the opportunity to learn from you.  Your experience is invaluable to me and others here. 

Selfishly though, I share these stories for me.  I needed this journey to wash over me and cleanse me of my past.  To leave it where it belongs.  Sort of like a good hot shower, but with PIPES!

Dodging The Roadkill: Rain Riding

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I’ve only been on this journey since January, 2016.  I’ve avoided rain like the plaque.  All of my trips were planned around the weather forecast.  If I was visiting friends in Texas, then I would check the weather between here and there and if there wasn’t a clear path, then I waited until there was.

What a WHIMP!

The bottom line is that the more you ride and the more miles you log, you are GOING to ride in the rain!  I don’t mean a drizzle or two, I mean a full on downpour.

The decision to continue riding during a storm is entirely up to the rider, and you don’t want to be full on STUPID, but sometimes you just get caught.  If you’ve prepared to encounter the rain, meaning you have “geared up” for it, then it’s no big deal.  You carry on.
