    Baiku

    I dont know how I got started on this, but Ive been writing some Haiku lately, except that its about motorcycles so with apologies to real poets I'll call it Baiku.

    Haiku is a form of traditional Japanese poetry that has 3 verses first 5 then 7 then 5 syllables. Ghead try it.

    Self-sufficiency
    Is why riding is for me
    We are an island

    Blocking the left lane
    A fat boy on a Fatboy
    I just dont get it

    Riding is a way
    To find who I might be
    In another time

    Stupid piece of crap
    What the hell is it this time?
    I want a new bike

    A clot of Harleys
    Watch as I pass you all
    Wish you could lean over

    Big fat slow beemer
    CBR tries to lose me
    I wave as I pass

    Saddlebags are big
    Until I pack my clothing
    Now I want a trunk

    Rally camping now
    Wake with a sore back again
    Hotel looks more fun

    Smelly naked guys
    Nowhere to point my eyeballs
    Communal shower sucks

    Beer tent open late
    I stumble back to my tent
    What was I thinking?

    Valve cover comes off
    Valves adjusted one more time
    Bike runs smooth again

    Bike rolls to a stop
    Dead battery or something?
    Fuel was not turned on

    Oh man. This is fun.....

    Zipping past mountains
    I do hope to live here soon
    The beauty of it.

    Tall peaks dressed in white
    spruce and balsam fill the air
    I love Idaho

    Twisty fast corners
    this road traces the Salmon
    three more years till heaven,here!

    Paraphrased from my site:
    From http://www.bradfordbenn.com/beemer/haiku.htm

    So when I was at Bob's BMW I purchased the Moto Magnet set. Since then Jennifer and I have been having fun setting up various phrases on the refrigerator, dare I say new age Haiku. I have both typed them as well as keeping the picture of the magnets on the fridge. Warning some of these are a little suggestive... kids do not look.
    Here is a sample:

    never lost
    have tour
    roared curves
    twisties free

    the RPM's sing
    instruments accelerate
    he grin

    Then for something with a little sexual inneundo... click here Warning, if you are offended by sexual inneundo, don't click

    There are more up on the site.

    you asked for it...

    Too much ice to ride
    Coffee and Baiku instead
    Later switch to beer

    Miss "Two Wheel Tuesday"
    Used to see racing all night
    Fox Speed Channel sucks.

    Dog says "quit pacing
    Why don't you go for a ride?"
    Who taught dog to talk?

    Snow still falling hard
    Radio says many wrecks
    OldCarKook is nuts

    Coffee and Baiku
    No substitute for real thing
    Might switch to beer now
