Dodging the Roadkill: Symphony of the Pipes

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyKerrville, TX – Last month I was invited to travel with a few other bikers to Texas.  I’ve ridden in Texas and it’s some of the best riding I’ve ever experienced. 

Eight of us took off from Clarksville early Friday morning.  We made the halfway point in Texarkana, Texas by late afternoon.  

After a quick meal, we all retired to our rooms for some much needed rest and relaxation.  Tomorrow was going to be another long day in the saddle.  

We had a slight delay in Little Rock as we worked our way through stop and go traffic due to, ironically, a motorcycle accident.  Other than that, we had a good ride and we were safe and sound.
