Dodging the Roadkill: 2020 Vision

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – So, here we are.  new year, new decade, new beginnings.  What’s next? 

I think a lot of us ask that same question. 

Resolutions?  I don’t make them, because I can’t seem to keep them.  I would guess you might be the same. 

We all need to be better than we were yesterday, so moving forward, I just try to take it one day at a time.  The older I get, the more I realize that if I just get the most out of each day, treating people better than before, pushing myself a little more, and motivating myself to step up my game, then it wears off on the ones I love and the people I meet.

Dodging the Roadkill: Time

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Time is everything in this world.  What time is it?  How much time?  Do I have enough time?  Is it time yet?  I need more time!  There’s not enough time in the world!  Time heals all wounds.  Just give me time! 

What we do with our time defines us.  How do you spend your time?  Is it YOUR time?

Anyone who has been through an extended illness or injury can tell you that how you spend your time can either make you better or it can make you “batty.”  I’ve had a lot of time on my hands trying to recover from this accident and I’ve spent too much time worrying about things that I know will take care of itself, in due time!

WHAT. THE. HELL. AM. I. DOING?

TWRA reports Suspect CWD Positive Deer Collected in Tipton County

 

Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency - TWRANashville, TN – A deer collected in Tipton County has tested suspect positive for chronic wasting disease (CWD), according to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA). If confirmed, this would change Tipton County from being a high-risk CWD county to a CWD positive county.

Tipton County is already a part of Unit CWD, therefore deer carcass exportation and wildlife feeding restrictions already apply there, as well as the Unit CWD hunting regulations.

Dodging the Roadkill: Why We Crash

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Anybody who has ever crashed on a motorcycle is lucky to have “lived to tell the tale.”   The one thing I’ve learned about laying it down is the questions about “what happened” never go away.  

“But I’m a good rider” we say.  “I wasn’t doing anything stupid” we say.  The reality is just that “shit” happens.  Both times I’ve laid a bike down, it was “pilot error.”  I simply was trying to do too much and lost control.  Bottom line. 

If you’ve ever been hit by another vehicle, or a deer, or simply something in the road, you have a clear cut explanation for your accident.  Most of the time, there are questions.  I second guessed myself for weeks about it.
