Dodging the Roadkill: Nobody Knows Diversity Like A Biker

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – These are crazy times we’re living in, to say the least.  It’s an election year, there’s a deadly virus among us, and unrest in the streets.

The country is in a state of confusion and misinformation, yet still has the time to argue with every Tom, Dick and Harry on the planet.  We’ve taken disagreement to another level.

One thing I think we can all agree on though is that Bikers understand diversity and embrace it with love and respect.  You don’t have to explain to a biker what it means to respect one another.  We come in all colors, sizes and lifestyles.

Dodging the Roadkill: Rocky Mountain High – Part 3

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – When I agreed to go to Sturgis, that was all there was to it.  I would spend the week at the Rally and come home.

Somewhere along the way, this adventure expanded into a full blown travel itinerary that included stops in Colorado Springs, and Ouray, Colorado.

A couple of years ago, I met an Army veteran and his wife, Craig and Kim Kotzen. 

Craig and I met through a mutual friend, and our love for motorcycles developed into a great friendship.  We’ve traveled several times to the Smoky Mountains where we’ve gotten to know each other better.
