Dodging the Roadkill: Rocky Mountain High – The Ride Home

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I spent three days in Ouray, Colorado with my friends, Kim and Craig.  Their hospitality was amazing!  Their home is beautiful, and with mountains at the front door, and mountains from the back deck, I couldn’t have been more blessed and fortunate.

We spent the days riding the mountains, visiting Silverton and Durango Colorado and all points in between.  My only regret from my time in Ouray, is that i didn’t get out to visit any of the locals, or take a walk downtown.  I also didn’t visit one of their famous “hot springs.”

As I said before, this part of the country gives you MANY reasons to come back again, and again.

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to store water at Barkley Reservoir, reduce Ohio River and Mississippi River flood crests

 

Written by Bill Peoples
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Nashville District

U.S. Army Corps of EngineersNashville, TN – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District announced today that it is continuing its flood control operation by using flood control storage in Lake Barkley to help mitigate the ongoing flood event on the Ohio River. This may cause minor high water impacts to communities along the Cumberland River in Lyon and Trigg Counties in Kentucky, and Stewart and Montgomery Counties in Tennessee.

Releases from Barkley Dam on the Cumberland River in Kuttawa, KY, are being reduced today as the Ohio River flood crest passes downstream. This reduction in discharge contributes to lowering the crest on the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers, thereby reducing flood risk at cities such as Paducah, KY, Cairo, IL, Memphis, TN, Vicksburg MS, and New Orleans, LA.

Cumberland River may rise due to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers flood Control operation at Lake Barkley.

Dodging the Roadkill: Relationships – The Home Dealership

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – One of the first things I learned when I started searching for a motorcycle, was that it’s not like  buying a car.  You don’t just play this “back and forth,” “cat and mouse” game with the dealership.  

When you’re ready to buy a motorcycle, you had better know what you’re talking about and know what you’re willing to pay for it.  The game is to get as many “add-ons” as you can.  To strike a happy medium.

I always knew I was going to buy my bike from my local Harley-Davidson dealership, because I wanted to support local businesses, plus I wanted to establish relationships that I could depend on to help me become a better biker.
