Dodging the Roadkill: The Thankful Biker

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN As I begin to gather around the dinner table for another Thanksgiving meal with family and friends, I would be remiss if I didn’t list a few of the things I’m thankful for as a biker.  Maybe some of these apply to you as well, if so, that’s great. 

One of the biggest things I’m thankful for is how this motorcycle has brought me to places I would have never seen without it. 

I traveled to Colorado, Kansas, Texas, Florida, Kentucky and Indiana.  To Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina and Mississippi. 

Thankful to have ridden the great Rocky Mountains and all their beautiful glory.
