Dodging the Roadkill: My Motorcycle, My Music, My Memories

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I’ve posted many articles about how much I LOVE to ride alone.  I’m not anti-social, and I love riding with my “buds” but I ABSOLUTELY love the solitude of just me and the open road.

And deep down inside, so do you.

I’m an early morning rider.  I will get up and hit my favorite coffee shop, then take off for a couple of hours.  I’m also a HUGE music lover.  Forty years on the radio will do that to you.  I have a thumb drive filled with the music of my life.

I was living in Europe as a young man when the Beatles and the great British Invasion landed, so, my music is VERY important to me. Now my motorcycle and my music are helping me relive my life, one song at a time.

AAATampa, FL – According to AAA, Gas prices are nearly six cents cheaper in some states across the country on the week, which has pushed the national gas price average cheaper by a penny to $2.85 today.

Dodging the Roadkill: Texas Road Show

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyKerrville, TX – I will always remember the first time I traveled to Texas on a motorcycle.

 I was just starting my journey into this lifestyle and was SO excited to visit good friends, and ride the Texas hill country that I had heard so much about.

After making a couple of trips here, I hadn’t been back for over a year, but that all changed this week.

I was asked  to join a group of bikers to come ride the Texas hill country, so I jumped at the opportunity. 

One of our main objectives was to ride the “Twisted Sisters.”  During my previous trips here, I had NO idea about the names of any notable motorcycle routes, I just followed my friends wherever they took me and it was amazing!
