Dodging the Roadkill: Freedom

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Nothing embodies the image of freedom more than the American biker.  Bikers are passionate about their country, their freedom, their faith and respect. 

Wednesday, Independence Day, I saw hundreds of Bikers rolling out in the name of Freedom, proudly waving their American Flag.  It’s a glorious thing!

In a day and age where all the political “noise” dominates our lives, I tend to ignore it all and remain committed to my faith, and my passion for the greatest country in the world, America!

Since I’ve been on this journey, I’ve tried to absorb all the aspects of this lifestyle, including my love of country.  I’ve NEVER met a biker who doesn’t love his country, despite our differences.
