Dodging the Roadkill: The Week That Was

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – This has been a challenging week for me.  Let’s review shall we?

Sunday:  Motorcycle accident.  Lost it in a corner.  Injuries to my leg, but nothing broken.  We load up me and the bike and get home, where I would ice my leg overnight.

Monday (Labor Day):  Stayed prone most of the day, continuing to ice my leg, still a lot of pain and soreness, but this too will pass.

Tuesday: Went to the Harley shop to get moving on the repairs.  $1100 worth of work.  Not too bad and it should be ready in about a week.

I STILL haven’t seen a doctor.

Dodging the Roadkill: Expectations

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Let me first apologize for not posting any updates in the last week.  The flu bug/stomach bug has made the rounds through my household, so me and the “porcelain throne” have become “besties” this week.

One of the most common questions I get from the people I meet on this journey is, “do you stop and visit Harley dealerships when you travel?” 

Yes. 

I try to visit any and ALL dealerships when I’m on the road, especially Harley Davidson, because I collect Poker Chips.

Dodging the Roadkill: Confidence

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – When I bought my first Harley last year, it had been over thirty five years since I had ridden a motorcycle.  It was a Suzuki 750 and I was young and stupid.  It’s a wonder I lived to tell the tale.

My venture into motorcycle ownership is documented here.

The first thing I did was take a safety course at my Harley Davidson dealership.  When I straddled the bike for the first time and took off around the course, I realized that it was no problem.  I was 63 years old and you wonder about a lot of things, especially balance, and strength.  

I was hooked.
