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: Totaled

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – My insurance company has decided to “total” my motorcycle as a result of the damage suffered in my accident on November 10th, 2019.  I’ve got to be honest with you, several of us looked at the bike and NEVER thought it had that much damage.

Just a quick scan of the damage and we had estimated maybe $5,000-$7,000 at the worst. I was somewhat relieved, at that time, that I hadn’t totaled it and could repair it. Apparently that wasn’t the case.

After Harley put it on the rack and surveyed what had happened, the damage was too severe to repair and the insurance company deemed it totaled.
