Dodging the Roadkill: The Bond

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – When I began this journey, I had been suffering from serious depression.  This motorcycle pulled me out of it.  I wrote about it here

As I was researching motorcycles, styles, brands, etc., what I was most intrigued by was the culture.  The “biker” culture.  The brotherhood.  The bond.  

“Never leave a brother behind!”

After a career spent in a very superficial, selfish and self serving environment (broadcasting), it was exciting to forge new friendships. Friendships that were genuine.  Friendships that weren’t based on what I could do for someone.

NASA to chase Total Solar Eclipse from WB-57F Jets

 

Written by Mara Johnson-Groh
NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD – For most viewers, the Monday, August 21st, 2017, total solar eclipse will last less than two and half minutes. But for one team of NASA-funded scientists, the eclipse will last over seven minutes. Their secret? Following the shadow of the Moon in two retrofitted WB-57F jet planes.

Amir Caspi of the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado, and his team will use two of NASA’s WB-57F research jets to chase the darkness across America on August 21st. Taking observations from twin telescopes mounted on the noses of the planes, Caspi will ­­­­­capture the clearest images of the Sun’s outer atmosphere — the corona — to date and the first-ever thermal images of Mercury, revealing how temperature varies across the planet’s surface.

This vantage point provides distinct advantages over ground-based observations, as illustrated by this composite photo of the aircraft and the 2015 total solar eclipse at the Faroe Islands.

Dodging the Roadkill: Picking A Hotel

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Traveling as much as I do, I’m constantly trying to refine how I find a hotel/motel for the night. Somewhere near the interstate or somewhere in town?

In the beginning, since I travel alone, I was content with one of the major brands, on the lower end of the rate chain.  Certainly not one of the high end facilities.  Preferably a motel where I can park the bike outside the front door.

I’ve had good luck with America’s Best, Super 8, and my favorite, Econo-Lodge.  Usually finding a rate between $55.00-$70.00.  It’s a roll of the dice really, since they’re independently owned, so you really never know.

My Two Cents: When The Music Dies

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – I took a motorcycle trip this weekend and with it comes lots of time for reflection as I roll down the highway. It’s one of my greatest pleasures now. The music and me.  Alone.  

It’s been a sad couple of years for losing musical icons.  It seemed like every day there was one right after another.  I remember thinking, “boy this year sucks.”  Then another, and another.

Dodging the Roadkill: It’s The Little Things

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I’m a relatively new biker.  I’m still learning.  Things that come naturally to veteran bikers are still working their way into my routine.  I’m thankful that none of these “forgetful” moments have caused me any problems, because they can.

Mirrors:

In the beginning, I didn’t seem to pay attention to the rear view mirrors like I should.  I would glance over my shoulder and drift into the passing lane.  I would just be in a “zone”during the ride and not notice someone in my blind spot.
