walking

watching

two

load motorcycles

onto a truck

stop and talk

about bikes

changes

provokes

feelings

of riding

crashing

invincibility !

almost all

lost in years ago

bounced around

over hills and through trees

yamaha

suzuki

recalls

a ride

memory

of a morning

pelting rain

to see her

veronica

the girlfriend

that said...

i'm sorry

around eleven

the night before

choosing not to stop

sped up, to say good-bye

met another

a night later

but will never forget

motorcycle.

haha - what's the hmmm ? and a twist is - the another - i mentioned / i married .

Did you?

The hmmm was because you poem brings up memories.

yes laura the future wife followed veronica the girlfriend -

and i really do miss that motorcycle - owned at different times three of them - but it was the one above i write about that i really miss - sold it to become lets say more responsible - used some of the money to buy a pick up truck - haha

i have a few motorcycles that i miss , also .

Bobby and his boys were great off road riders...mostly desert stuff..motorcycles r the modern day horses...and i love horses!!

i think i would take a horse over a motorcycle - i have scant experiance with horses -

At least they multiply before they depreciate.

I know that feeling of invincibility all too well, but have lived long enough to see more than one of my friends lose their lives or their bikes. Sobers you.
