Dodging the Roadkill: A Day Trip To West Tennessee

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Some of the best times I’ve had on my motorcycle have been in my own back yard.  Living in Tennessee presents me with beautiful countryside, navigated on back country roads for miles and miles.  I’m able to cross up into Kentucky, or down to Alabama and the roads and beautiful scenery just keep unfolding in front of me.

When I bought my first Harley last year, I traveled to San Marcos Texas. The first leg of my trip was to travel down Highway 79 and keep off of the Interstate.  I discovered beautiful roads, amazing countryside, quaint little towns and miles and miles of open road.

Before I knew it, I was in Memphis.

My Two Cents: A Night With The Jackson Generals

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterJackson, TN – During a family vacation this summer, my family and I were blessed to meet a remarkable young man named Dusty Stanfill.  He was born facing challenges that most of us couldn’t imagine.  You can read his story here. I remember that all he talked about was his beloved baseball team, the Jackson Generals.  

Since returning from vacation, I had been trying to figure out a way to pay him a visit, so what better way than to surprise him at a baseball game.  So, working with some fabulous people at the Jackson Generals, I straddled the Harley and took off.
