You perhaps have forgotten Easy Rider bikers, but we old geezers that had that wild vibrating thing between our legs, don't! heeeeeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaaawwwwwwww!!!
Dedicated to Fred "Harley Davidson" Rideout
I promised to no naming Fredís name to Rose,
Oops! I done it again, like falling from the roof
when prancing up there like red nose Rudolph
up there only an absent minded biker will do.
Bikers wives have no place in their garages,
if the Harley Davison must be kept out the snow
her car will be relegated to be alone outside
as they said, left to wonder all by itself in the cold.
But I am with Fred all the way on Route sixty six,
of those sterilized highways I am not very fond,
I like the twisting road going though little towns
and when it rains, we ainít in no way waterproof.
Sleeping under the stars when the moon is not there,
with a coyote wannabe Sinatra with a pitiful voice,
gas ainít too expensive if you have a rich uncle when
grabbing grub on those eighteen wheelers pit stops.
Riding a souped up old monster from Milwaukee,
no Smokey will ever catch up on those Japís jobs,
at hundred and fifty miles he will eating HD dust
and on the horizon Fred and I will be just ghosts!
But man, Easy Rider on the open roads of yesterday
wouldnít see, not the bikerís bohemia, not anymore,
but Electric Glides with automatic warming butt seats
and hi-fi stereos full of Mantovanis and Manilows.
OK Fred, we should give a little time to our girls,
if you start by giving plenty of sugar to your Rose
I promise to be a good boy and go that extra mile
on my old Harley D to get us a full crate of Coors.

|Whoosh, a grand look back to days when men were men and cows were scared.
Never understood about road 66. But coors, yikes, is a weak lager. Better to nip out for beer. Try Old Speckled Hen, Old Thumper, Newcastle Brown, Abbott's. Haha, Jap Jobs. Over hear they're called Jap crap. If they are not recalled.

|A fun look back to the days of monkey hangers and raw power. Sadly, i must agree with the others that Coors is dreck. Give me good Canadian brew anytime.|

|All that for a nasty Coors! Heineken is where its at, Georgi! LOL!
This sure brought back some good ole' memories! I always rode on the back, leaning against the sissy bars, dodging bugs and leaning out of the turns...never road Rt 66 by bike, but wouldn't mind it one iota!
The Pocono Mts. was my winding roads...the feel of the breezes, open air on your face, passing sun-streaks that flicker between the greening trees...it doesn't get much better than that...with a Heiney!
You are one funny guy! :)
Love and Peace~

|Thank you kindly Georg. I do remember the Easy Rider choppers of old, I still watch the movie at least once a week. Your poem had the wind flowing through what's left of my hair. No more is it down to the middle of back; 30 years of Military took care of that.
I also love the twisty roads, the thrill of cutting a turn and the boards sending sparks flying as you twist on the gas coming out the other side. But alast I look outside and the snow brings me back to now, but wait I hear the rumble, and it's coming sooooonnnnnn.

|A Harley fell on me once, I remember making passionate love, to the low purr, and I been down ever since, I am not complaining, it sort of grew on me, we resided poems about tantric love, on 66, at sunset overlooking Alberquerqui I think, there was smog in the air, but it must have been the joints, to kill the pain so to speak, but I never, never inhaled, I swear, I leave that to Jersey ha.
Nice you raised Georg. Blessings! Jasmin Horst
