Dodging the Roadkill: Dear Mr. Truck Driver

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Don’t be misled by the title of this post. I’m not about to start “bashing” truck drivers.

First of all, I appreciate what you do. This country can’t do anything without you. You spend long hours behind the wheel, many days away from your family, and you get no respect.

You drive HUGE machines all over this country and have to deal with all the idiots out there. Trust me, I’m a biker, I know a thing or two about all the idiots out there.

When I started this journey, I quickly noticed that EVERYBODY on the road, and I mean, EVERYBODY, is distracted. The cell phone will kill us all.

AAA reports Gas Prices Hit Three Year Highs after Hurricanes

 

AAANashville, TN Gasoline availability continues to improve after Hurricane Irma drove-up demand and left many gas stations without fuel. A steady stream of ships delivering gasoline to Florida’s ports are helping to normalize supply levels in the southeastern U.S., and gas prices are beginning to drift a little lower. 

Last week, gasoline hit the highest price in 3 years. During that time in 2014, oil was (and usually is) the main driver of pump prices, as crude traded between $65.00-$75.00 per barrel.

Southeastern states see the highest monthly increases in the United States.

Dodging the Roadkill: The Center Of Attention

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I can only speak for myself when I say that one of prime reasons for owning a motorcycle is it’s image.  Good or bad, the motorcycle has always represented the “coolest of cools,” and the “baddest of bads.”

Marlon Brando, Peter Fonda, James Dean and my all time favorite, Steve McQueen, made the motorcycle the icon it is today.  You can’t deny that sitting on the back of a motorcycle and cruising through town, or pulling into the parking lot, is an amazing feeling.

I’m not saying that I AM the coolest thing on two wheels, I’m just saying that in my mind, the ability to own a bike, ride a bike and represent the culture in some way, IS the coolest thing going.
