Dodging the Roadkill: Memorial Day

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – As we approach Memorial Day, I have some thoughts.  Schools have let out and bikers have saddled up and taken to the open road.  A lot of those bikers are veterans. 

Since I began this journey, I’ve NEVER had such a thrill as meeting all of the veterans I’ve met through this motorcycle.  I ride with active duty and retired veterans all the time and there’s no finer group of people ON THE PLANET!

The reason I’m able to enjoy my Harley and travel the open road is because of the service and sacrifice of the American Soldier. I grew up as a military brat but was unable to serve. The military life is a unique experience.

Dodging the Roadkill: Riding the Devil’s Triangle

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyCumberland Plateau, TN – On a beautiful Saturday in May, up on the Cumberland Plateau just north of Oak Ridge, Tennessee, I joined a group of fellow bikers to ride the notorious Devil’s Triangle.

This is NOT for the faint of heart.

I’ve only been riding since January of 2016, and since I took to my “journey” I’ve logged over 41,000 miles.  In the beginning my skills were sketchy, but with miles, comes confidence, and improved skills.

During the summer of 2016, I joined my dear Texas friends for a week long trip that included riding the “Tail of the Dragon.”  The reputation of the “Tail” had me a little apprehensive.  “Was I prepared to ride it?” I would ask myself.
