Dodging the Roadkill: Safety First, Ego Last

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – If you’ve been following this motorcycle journey I’m on, you know that I’m uncovering thrill after thrill. I’m also soaking up the knowledge and advice from bikers who have been on their own journey for a long, long time.

I am by NO means an expert. My stories, and opinions are from a guy who is still just getting out of the starting gate.

Riding a motorcycle is dangerous. It demands my total attention. Disaster can strike in an instant. It’s something that you know going in.

Before I bought a bike, I was a serious “Type A” driver. By the time I reached my destination, I was convinced that every other car on the road was an idiot, or a moron, or shouldn’t be allowed on my highway. You know the type. I was THAT guy.
