Dodging the Roadkill: Passion Or Addiction?

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I run into people all the time who say, “man, you really love that bike” or “where’s your next trip?”  Like me, many of my long time friends are still amazed that this is where I find myself at this stage of my life, traveling the country, on the back of a motorcycle.

Nothing I had ever done in my life would have pointed me in this direction.  I had my motorcycle “fling” in the late 70’s and that was that.  I never thought about it again.  But when I walked into the Harley dealership that day and realized what I was missing, something just “clicked.”
