BRAKE Another one of the old-fashioned country doctors, now almost a vanished profession in an area that has passed, is gone., He is Dr. John W. Brake of nearby Dickson County. The 93-year-old retired doctor died Tuesday in retirement. He had practiced medicine for half a century. For many years Dr. Brake was a beloved and familiar figure on horseback with his saddle bags, responding to the call of the sick. He delivered thousands of babies, representing two generations. It is said that he never mailed a bill for his services. He kept his records in a small book and when a patient paid he marked it paid. Needless to say his services were free in innumerable cases. In this age of specialization general practioners are becoming fewer. But the so-called country doctor who maintains his office in some community and responds to the calls of neighboors is almost gone, even as the horse and saddlebags of another era have vanished.

He has carried on a continuous practice of medicine for more than a half a century. This man is Dr. J. W. Brake, who resides in the Woodvalley Community of Dickson County, and who needs no introduction to hundreds of people within a 75 radius of his home. Born in Davidson County in August, 1865, Dr. Brake received his education mostly in the schools of that county. Receiving his medical diploma from Vanderbilt in the spring of 1885, he moved Dickson County, where he started out in 1888 on his career in medicine, possessed with a horse and "saddle bags." inside the saddle bags were medicines, instruments, and other paraphernalia which could be used to relieve the sick people of the community as prescriptions and drug stores were almost unknown to the rural people in those days. He was to become one of the most prominent physicians of the area, and enjoy the respect and admiration of hundreds of people in four counties. Since doctors were few and far apart in the latter part of the 19th century, the "practice area" often reached out for 40 to 50 miles from his home. Rode For 30 Years "For 30 years," Dr. Brake says, he carried on his practice "in the saddle," purchasing his first automobile in 1917. However, due to conditions of rural roads, the automobile was not used but very little for calling on patients, many of whom resided far from the main roads, their home been accessible only on horseback or by buggy. The doctor says he never used a buggy much in going to see patients, for it always seemed "bundlesome," and then in case of dark nights or times when

This picture was taken about an hour after my Tiger hit 35,000 miles. That's more miles than the average bike does in its whole life. The bulk (or 'Tiger's share') of those miles have come on long road trips to beautiful places like this one on Highway 395 in Nevada on the way to Yosemite National Park. Despite her mileage, TriCat is as much fun and as reliable as she was when I bought her. While I don't remember any hail, she and I have ridden through rain, snow and sleet and she has never missed a beat. She has never broken down, never left me stranded, she always gets me where I want to go, no matter how far away and then she always gets me home safely. She has done 500+ mile days with ease and she was the first bike on which I ever got my knee down (and I can provide witnesses) though having a 36" inseam helps with that. She has gotten me out of jams that I don't think a less capable bike could have handled. One time I had a blowout on the rear tube at about 55mph that was so violent that the tire bead actually came off the rim, if you can imagine that. After the tube blew, the back end started swinging back and forth like nothing I have ever experienced. I just moved all my weight as far forward as I could to take as much weight as possible off the back wheel, let off the gas, didn't touch the brake or the clutch, coasted until she was just about to bog down, then barely touched the front brake as I hit the kill switch. It stopped my heart when it happened but I knew in my heart that my girl wouldn't throw me. She has always done her best for me and I have always done the best for her that I could. Over the years, she has gotten Yoshimura cans, a Corbin saddle, an Ohlins remote reservoir rear shock, WP fork internals, a Magellan GPS and a Throttlemeister. A couple of years ago, I came very close to buying a Honda CB1100XX Blackbird that was set up for touring with Givi saddlebags, Corbin saddle, higher windscreen, etc. But I couldn't do it, the thought of going places like this on any other bike just didn't seem right, just wouldn't be the same without my girl. She has taken me so many places and we have seen so many things that I would otherwise never have experienced. Before too long, she and I will have been crisscrossing the best roads of the western United States for ten years and I fully expect that we will be doing the same in another ten years from now. She's much too important a part of my life to ever let her go. And even though I prefer to go on trips by myself, when TriCat and I set off to go exploring, I always feel like I am traveling with a friend.
