Dodging the Roadkill: Encouragement


Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that I HATE the time switch.  I’m a warm weather fan, so moving the clocks back an hour just tells me that the cold weather is coming and it gets darker earlier. 

But I don’t want to talk about the weather or the time switch.  If you’ve been following my journey then you know my story.  This motorcycle changed my life.  

We’re approaching the holidays filled with family get togethers, turkey and dressing, Christmas music and Santa Claus.  A festive time of the year and a time to give thanks and count our blessings. But this time of the year can be a struggle for some of you and I know exactly how you feel. 

Hank and his motorcycle.
