Topic: Gulf Coast
Clarksville, TN – There’s no question that if you live in my part of the country, you realize we experience a special kind of summer. While other parts of the country say “it’s a different kind of heat,” or, “it doesn’t feel that hot here,” in my neck of the woods, it can be BRUTAL!
People who visit Tennessee this time of the year, always comment that “if it weren’t for the humidity, it wouldn’t be that bad.” Make no mistake, it can get HOT here, and when you’re sitting on a motorcycle, with the heat rising from the engine, then it’s a special kind of hot.
But I LOVE it! Because I’m riding and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else!
