Blood pumping fast through my veins,
Struggling to control this mighty machine,
Power, like nothing I have felt before.
The engine roars,
Click it into gear and release the clutch,
Slowly it glides, taking the lead on the road,
A flash of red is all that is seen.
Twist the throttle,
Throw it into higher gear,
Feel the speed, as the wind blows hard,
Feel the power as it rumbles beneath.
I’m in control,
Excitement, which could lead to death,
No time to have fear, but just to enjoy,
The pure adrenalin rush,
From my bike.
