Dodging the Roadkill: Perception vs. Reality

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – If you follow me on social media, you may remember that I asked your opinion about whether the “image” of bikers had gotten better or worse over the years.  The responses were varied, but everybody weighed in.

First of all, I DO NOT worry, nor care about what others think of me and the choices I’ve made in my life.  Motorcycles are NOT for everyone, and bikers as a whole couldn’t care less what you think about this lifestyle. 

I spent my career in a business that depended on being “liked” or “popular.”  That’s why I LOVE this lifestyle, because nobody gives a DAMN what you think about it.  It’s so refreshing to finally get to be myself, and be with others who are genuine and don’t want ANYTHING from me.
