Dodging the Roadkill: Cindy’s On The Barge

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyHardin, KY – On a sunny Sunday afternoon, I was taking my wife on our weekly “2-up” ride. I had discovered some new roads that I wanted to show her and decided we would land at either Kenlake Marina, or Barkley Lodge. I had planned for us to stop for lunch at one of the two destinations.

My route was to take highway 41 to Hopkinsville, then ride highway 164 over to Cadiz. It’s an absolutely breathtaking view of the Kentucky countryside with tree covered stretches of highway and open roads that only the Kentucky back roads can provide.

We come out on highway 68/80 at the bridge. From there, you can get to Land Between the Lakes, or as we did, take off for Grand Rivers, KY.  It’s a great ride if you haven’t been.

Dodging the Roadkill: Kentucky State BBQ Festival

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyDanville, KY – What started as a weekend motorcycle trip through the beautiful Kentucky countryside, turned into a discovery of one of the coolest festivals I have ever been to.  

The Kentucky State BBQ Festival, in Danville Kentucky.   

The Danville event looked like an interesting place to go and who doesn’t love good BBQ?  And this festival featured the rock stars of the BBQ world, so, you know, somebody’s got to do it!

As a “foodie” myself, just the opportunity to meet Moe Cason and the legendary Mike Mills was enough for me, but seeing our Nashville friends, Peg Leg Porker was a real treat.  Learn more about this year’s Pitmasters here.

Dodging the Roadkill: Mammoth Cave National Park

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyCentral Kentucky – On a recent trip to Northern Kentucky, I decided to take a quick “ride through” of Mammoth Cave National Park.  I had passed by it several times on previous trips, but had never ventured off to see it first hand.  If you’re a biker, (and you probably are) you HAVE to ride this magnificent park.

Mammoth Cave National Park is located just of Interstate 65 at exit 48, (the Park City exit), that turns onto Ky-255.  It turns into Park City Road that joins Mammoth Cave Parkway.  

The park is a U.S National Park that encompasses portions of Mammoth Cave, which is the longest cave system in the world.  The park’s 52,830 acres are located in Edmonson County Kentucky and is centered on the Green River.

AAA reports National Gas Price Average Hits Highest Pump Price of the Year

 

AAATampa Bay, FL – At $2.45, today’s national gas price average is the highest recorded price for a gallon of unleaded gasoline so far this year.

The near-term combinations of numerous refinery and pipeline shut downs, tightened access to supply levels in the Gulf and anticipated high gasoline demand surrounding Labor Day weekend, means motorists may not have seen the full impact of Harvey at the pump.

Hurricane Harvey Induced Refinery and Pipeline Shut Downs Spur Short-Term Spike.

Dodging the Roadkill: The South Union Shaker Village

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyAuburn, KY – On a beautiful Saturday morning, I did what I so often LOVE to do.  Go get a fresh hot cup of coffee, then take an early morning ride somewhere.  The mornings are so peaceful and cool, with very little traffic.  It’s perfect! 

As I was watching the sun coming up, I was wondered which direction I would ride.  Then it hit me, that on my way back from Arkansas last week, I came through Kentucky, down highway 68/80.  I passed a familiar road sign to the “Shaker Museum.”  From Clarksville, it’s a beautiful ride, and as so many bikers have, I’ve passed it many times.

I thought today would be the day I would visit to learn more.

Dodging the Roadkill: My Harley-Davidson Ultra-Limited

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I’ve been riding since January 2016.  My first bike was a 2016 Harley-Davidson Street Glide Special.  

I LOVED that bike.  I put 32,000 miles on it.  

I took it to Texas, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky and all throughout Tennessee.  I had a Stage 1 kit on it and kept it serviced.  It was a magnificent bike.

In 2017, with all the traveling I do, I traded for the 2017 Ultra-Limited.  It offered the new Milwaukee Eight engine, had more storage, heated grips and updated technology.  I’ve put 24,000 miles on it so far.
