Dodging the Roadkill: Returning to the scene of the crime

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – As we wait out the winter weather, and I continue to fully recover from the accident, I’ve been asked many times if I’ve been back to the scene of my accidents. 

The first one wasn’t as bad as the deer strike in November, but either way, I haven’t been back to the scene of the crime.

The first accident, I missed a turn and slid into the bushes.  Did about $1000 worth of damage to the bike.  I suffered a cut on my leg that eventually needed surgery to clean out the infection.  It took 6 weeks to fix me AND the bike.
