Dodging the Roadkill: It’s A Journey Not A Destination

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – You see this “meme” all over social media. “Being a biker is a journey, NOT a destination.” Or, “It’s about the ride, not the destination.”

Have you ever wondered just WHAT this journey is? Does it matter?

In my short time as a biker, I’ve discovered that this one theme is the common thread that connects us.

To me, it speaks volumes about how we don’t ever want the “journey” to end. We want to ride forever. We don’t want there to be a “destination” because that implies that the journey is over.

Too deep?

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.
