Dodging the Roadkill: Looking Back

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – There’s a popular internet meme that says, “don’t look back, there’s nothing to see there.”  My understanding is that it refers to your life BEFORE motorcycles, and while that’s true, I think it’s healthy to take stock in where you’ve come from and how you will move forward.

Self improvement is a never ending process.  Learning from your mistakes is critical. To just simply ignore the things that happen in your life as coincidence is wrong.  In my opinion, I believe that things happen for a reason, and I’ve got to recognize that.

I don’t want to be better than everybody else, I just want to be better than I was yesterday.

Dodging the Roadkill: The Loner In Me

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Once I finally owned a motorcycle of my own, I was like a kid in a candy store.  I had been “test” riding various models for two months, even to the point that the sales team at the dealership was saying, “Hell, he ain’t gonna buy no bike.”

Oh, I was going to buy a bike, but when I was damn well ready.

So now, I’ve got my Harley and my first trip was to Texas to visit some dear friends, one of whom had been a biker for most of his life.  He had helped me negotiate my way around the motorcycle buying experience, but he was a real mentor to me in my younger days as a salesman and I’ve always been grateful for him.
