Dodging the Roadkill: Life In The Left Lane

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I think we can all agree that one of THE most frustrating things about being on the interstate, is getting stuck behind someone holding up traffic in the left lane.   

These drivers seem oblivious to their surroundings, or just flat out don’t care, or just don’t know any better.  It’s dangerous, rude and irresponsible. 

Oh, and it’s frustrating too. 

I’ve been driving a long time and I certainly don’t remember it being this way when I was younger, and I can’t seem to understand why it’s so prevalent now.

Dodging the Roadkill: The Battle Is Real – Bikers vs Cagers

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – The battle lines were drawn many years ago.  Motorcycles and cars.  

Who owns the road?  

Well, nobody “owns” the road, and we need to show each other some respect.  And that’s the rub!  For whatever reason, we just don’t seem to like each other.

Before I owned a motorcycle, I must admit, motorcycles intimidated me.  If I saw them approaching me from behind, I got the HELL out of the way.  It was almost like an “uh oh, here they come” moment.  

Not all motorists like or respect motorcycles.  A lot of them just flat out hate them and will do whatever it takes to make their life miserable.  Hence the ongoing battle between the two, and the conflict can result in tragedy.
