    Dodging the Roadkill: Reckless

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I’m sure at one time or another, we’ve ALL done something reckless.  That’s how it is when you’re young and immortal.  As you grow older though, you become a bit wiser, not to mention you understand, “I’m too old to so something this stupid.”

    I went on a group ride over the weekend and there were seven of us.  A couple of Harley’s a couple of Gold Wings and a couple of sport bikes.  “Crotch rockets” as some like to call them.

    The sport bikes were guys I had never met.  Good guys, but it was our first time riding together.  The plan was to get out for a few hours while it was still the cool of the morning, and be done before the heat settled in.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Always Lurking

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Since my accident last November, I’ve had the opportunity to hear from many of you about YOUR near death experiences on a motorcycle.  Your stories have been extraordinary.

    Many of you had far worse injuries than I did, and yet here you are, able to “tell the tale.”  They’re memories you would just as soon forget, but hearing them gives me chills, and reminds me of “that” moment when I hit the deer.

    I replay it over and over.  I will NEVER forget the sound of my Harley striking that beast.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Nobody Knows Diversity Like A Biker

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – These are crazy times we’re living in, to say the least.  It’s an election year, there’s a deadly virus among us, and unrest in the streets.

    The country is in a state of confusion and misinformation, yet still has the time to argue with every Tom, Dick and Harry on the planet.  We’ve taken disagreement to another level.

    One thing I think we can all agree on though is that Bikers understand diversity and embrace it with love and respect.  You don’t have to explain to a biker what it means to respect one another.  We come in all colors, sizes and lifestyles.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Never Leave Your Wingman

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – On my recent trip to the Smoky Mountains, I was riding with a group of seven bikers.  Most of our riding was together, and other than a quick trip to the grocery store, we were always together.

    On this particular day, two of us were ready to beat the heat and head back to the hotel so he and I went one way and the group went another.

    The trip back to the hotel dictated that we ride the Tail of the Dragon.  Once we were at Deals Gap, we had two options to Robbinsville, NC.

    Dodging the Roadkill: Getting What You Deserve

     

    Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I just returned from a four day three night trip to the Great Smoky Mountains.  It’s a trip I make at least a couple of times a year.  The Smokies are just a couple of hours down I-40 so it’s an easy ride for me.

    What began as a three man trip turned into a group of seven brothers eager to take whatever the landscape could throw at us.

    Of course we did the Devil’s Triangle, Tail of the Dragon, Wayah Road, the Moonshiner and a day trip to Helen Georgia.  We had hot and steamy weather, for the most part, although a portion of the group were drenched in a downpour on Friday afternoon.

    Nashville Predators destroyed by the Edmonton Oilers 8-3

     

    Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators hosted the Edmonton Oilers tonight and for the first fifty minutes, it was a back and forth affair. 

    The Predators fought back from a two goal deficit after the first period, then fought back from a one goal deficit and just when the game was tied 3-3 and you thought you were in for a wild finish, nobody expected what happened next.

    Edmonton went on a five goal onslaught against the Predators, chasing Pekka Rinne from the game and embarrassing the home team with a final score of 8-3.
