Dodging the Roadkill: Weathering the Winter

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – The winter months have always been my least favorite time of the year.  Obviously when I was a kid, I loved the snow and all that came with it, but as an adult, a biker, and a man who has a few “achy” bones, winter is NOT fun for me.

One of the greatest things about this blog and all of you who follow, is that I get to learn so much about you and the part of the country that you live in.  I’ve never been so blessed by anything in my life as I have with this motorcycle and the people and places it brings me.
