Born To Be Wild!!!

Get your motor runnin'
Head out on the highway
Lookin' for adventure
And whatever comes our way
Yeah Darlin' go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space ....

Can you hear the rumble?
I can hear it.
It is the Call of The Wild!
It is a low rumble from about 2 miles away.
It is a group of motorcycles comin'.......Most likely Harleys.
There are some NON-American bikes that have a rumble but I sometimes don't hear them until they are past the window......Harleys and other American bikes are the ones that have that rumble.
I will always stop what I am doin' and look up to see the bike go by when I hear those loud pipes. And when there is a large group of them, It is awesome.....almost like an aphordisiac......loud pipes.....diesel.....and Big block V8!!

I like smoke and lightning
Heavy metal thunder
Racin' with the wind
And the feelin' that I'm under
Yeah Darlin' go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space......
Have you ever seen those motorcycles that have the V8 motors....car engines??
They are awesome!!
One of Roy's friends has one.... The Boss Hoss!
Lil Stevie started it up and it sat there idlin', purrin' so sweetly. Then he cranked the throttle....OH MY....the torque was wicked powerful and the sound just so tantilizin'.....My brain was screamin', "Do me now!!!"
I just stood there with Roy and smiled.
Any good BikerChick knows the sound of her old man's bike.....I can hear Roy comin' for 2 miles. One time I needed something from home and I knew Roy was there. He had just had his cast taken off his ankle the day before. I picked up the phone to call him when I heard it......the Indian.......it was comin'.....I knew it was Roy....No doubt in my mind.....those stainless steel Sampson Shorties are unique......and there he went by the window!!! I still had the phone in my hand as He did his high speed pass.....the Buzz the Tower Move......and turned around where all the cops hang out and came back to me.
He had his 'possum eatin' shit grin on as I laid into him!! He wanted to prove to himself and the WORLD he could still ride after breakin' his ankle....he wanted to do it just as soon as possible.

The Bikers are comin'.......I love that sound!

They are gatherin' for a Poker Run at the Casino. That is where the biker rides to designated stops and chooses a card and tries to make the best poker hand to win prizes. The prize this year is a V-Rod....a slick Harley. There will be a bike show and some stunt riders.
And later the Big and Rich Concert. Woo Hoo!!

Like a true nature's child
We were born,
born to be wild
We can climb so high
I never wanna die
Born to be wild
Born to be wild
