Dodging the Roadkill: Biker Down

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – From the very beginning of this journey, experienced bikers have told me, it’s not IF but WHEN you’ll have an “incident.” 

Well, Monday was my day.

I’ve dropped a bike four times in my brief riding career (3 years).  The only other time I went down was in Arkansas, when I overshot a corner and slid into a rain filled ditch.  No injuries and no damage to the bike.  I was muddy, but lucky.

Today, I lost it in a corner and off the road I went, sliding into the brush and coming to a stop about six feet off the pavement.  I STILL don’t know how and why I lost it.  I was with a group of five other riders and we were just cruising along, when all of a sudden, I ran out of pavement.
