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!
