Dodging the Roadkill: Rally Cry

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – As I enter the sixth week of my recovery from the accident, I’ve been filled with a lot of emotions.  I’ve been brought to tears from not only the pain, but the love and support of all of you.  When I began this journey, I never thought it would be as much of a blessing as it’s been, but, BIKERS ROCK!

I’ve noted many times, that I spent my career in a selfish, self serving business.  Everybody was fake and phony.  Backstabbing was the order of the day and only the strong survived.  I feel proud that I was able to finish a rewarding broadcasting career, raise a family and retire before I was sixty.
