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.
