Clarksville, TN – These are crazy times we’re living in, to say the least. It’s an election year, there’s a deadly virus among us, and unrest in the streets.
The country is in a state of confusion and misinformation, yet still has the time to argue with every Tom, Dick and Harry on the planet. We’ve taken disagreement to another level.
One thing I think we can all agree on though is that Bikers understand diversity and embrace it with love and respect. You don’t have to explain to a biker what it means to respect one another. We come in all colors, sizes and lifestyles.

Clarksville, TN – When I bought my first motorcycle, the first trip I took was to Texas. I have close friends who live in San Marcos, and I wanted to make sure my first trip was to visit them. It was one of the most exciting trips I’ve ever been on. I never thought twice about going it alone.
I’ve traveled all of my life. As a young military brat, travel was just part of the deal. I flew from Okinawa to the states in 1969, leaving my family behind to attend a military academy. It was no big deal, but the world was a different place back then.
When I returned home from Texas, I got numerous calls and texts from friends who told me how proud they were that I did that. Several made it out to be a really big deal, but I didn’t think anything about it.
Clarksville, TN – The one recurring theme that runs through this blog is the people I meet. Since the first time I threw my legs over a motorcycle, people came into my life that I would have never met without it.
My recent trip to Texas was no different.
We started with 7 motorcycles and 8 people. From the starting point, I immediately met two veterans who were joining us. Once we reached our destination, I met two more, and our “group” was set.
I’ve been blessed to ride with, and become friends with, first responders, veterans, mothers, sisters, and businessmen. They don’t want anything from me. They just want to ride.
Clarksville, TN – Chronic pain affects millions of people. Normal everyday people. By no fault of our own, and the older we get, stuff just breaks down, or wears out.
I’ve had two hip replacements, two wrist surgeries, and I deal with rheumatoid arthritis. I didn’t ask for it, but that’s where I am in my ripe old age. With titanium in my hips and my joints affected by the arthritis, it can get uncomfortable.
I don’t complain about it because there are MANY people who struggle with more serious issues, even life threatening illnesses and I’m blessed to be relatively healthy at this stage of my life.
But chronic pain is just that. It’s a PAIN.

Fort Knox, KY – Unfortunately, the growing divide between the military and society was apparent last week when a teacher’s inaccurate and misinformed statements about the quality of America’s armed forces made national headlines.
As a U.S. Army officer for more than 30 years, I can tell you our nation’s military services are among the most respected organizations in the world, and the individuals who choose to serve deserve the support of our nation’s people.
About 50 percent of young Americans today admit they know little to nothing about our military. As a nation, we are failing them, and we are failing ourselves.
