Dodging the Roadkill: Why We Crash

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Anybody who has ever crashed on a motorcycle is lucky to have “lived to tell the tale.”   The one thing I’ve learned about laying it down is the questions about “what happened” never go away.  

“But I’m a good rider” we say.  “I wasn’t doing anything stupid” we say.  The reality is just that “shit” happens.  Both times I’ve laid a bike down, it was “pilot error.”  I simply was trying to do too much and lost control.  Bottom line. 

If you’ve ever been hit by another vehicle, or a deer, or simply something in the road, you have a clear cut explanation for your accident.  Most of the time, there are questions.  I second guessed myself for weeks about it.

“On the week, 30 states saw pump price increases or decreases of three cents or less which helped keep the national average relatively steady, but motorists shouldn’t get their hopes up just yet,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson.

Dodging the Roadkill: The People I Meet

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – The one recurring theme that runs through this blog is the people I meet.  Since the first time I threw my legs over a motorcycle, people came into my life that I would have never met without it. 

My recent trip to Texas was no different.

We started with 7 motorcycles and 8 people.  From the starting point, I immediately met two veterans who were joining us.  Once we reached our destination, I met two more, and our “group” was set.

I’ve been blessed to ride with, and become friends with, first responders, veterans, mothers, sisters, and businessmen. They don’t want anything from me.  They just want to ride.

Dodging the Roadkill: Texas Road Show

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyKerrville, TX – I will always remember the first time I traveled to Texas on a motorcycle.

 I was just starting my journey into this lifestyle and was SO excited to visit good friends, and ride the Texas hill country that I had heard so much about.

After making a couple of trips here, I hadn’t been back for over a year, but that all changed this week.

I was asked  to join a group of bikers to come ride the Texas hill country, so I jumped at the opportunity. 

One of our main objectives was to ride the “Twisted Sisters.”  During my previous trips here, I had NO idea about the names of any notable motorcycle routes, I just followed my friends wherever they took me and it was amazing!

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.
