Dodging the Roadkill: Cruising the Interstate

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – When I started my journey, I remember the first time I took my Harley for a ride down the Interstate.

Wow!  This is REALLY fast!

I remember I was somewhat intimidated by all the traffic, the trucks and at times, the road debris.  My Street Glide Special was solid as a rock, purred like a kitten, and handled the turbulence of the 18 wheelers.  What I was most concerned about was, I wasn’t as “diligent” at keeping an eye on my rear view mirrors, so the passing vehicle that I hadn’t noticed, caused me a bit of a scare.

Dodging the Roadkill: Riding the Devil’s Triangle

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyCumberland Plateau, TN – On a beautiful Saturday in May, up on the Cumberland Plateau just north of Oak Ridge, Tennessee, I joined a group of fellow bikers to ride the notorious Devil’s Triangle.

This is NOT for the faint of heart.

I’ve only been riding since January of 2016, and since I took to my “journey” I’ve logged over 41,000 miles.  In the beginning my skills were sketchy, but with miles, comes confidence, and improved skills.

During the summer of 2016, I joined my dear Texas friends for a week long trip that included riding the “Tail of the Dragon.”  The reputation of the “Tail” had me a little apprehensive.  “Was I prepared to ride it?” I would ask myself.
