Cruising All Parts (build)

Your motorcycle is a wonderful assemblage of highly engineered parts. Parts that are designed and intended to work together for your enjoyment and safety. Just like your body, when all the parts are working as planned, everything goes swimmingly! But when parts balk, or worse yet – fail; ouch! So you need to care for all your parts, and all your motorcycle parts too! I’m still working on this here poem so check back for updates. Here’s to well tended parts.


Frames bend around and under stress provide,

a curious experience – called a ride.

The wheels of metal disk or lace suspend;

by axels round with bearings race contend.

Enclose the wheels, yes tires often do-

Inflate and check you must; without a crew…

Strong grip to stop are stored within disk brakes;

Keeping riders far from their mistakes.

Big engines hold the power of crushing blows,

from pistons round which pound as fuel flows.

Fenders fend from soil and sand which fly,

while windscreens block much grit from tearing eyes.

So as you ride distinguished down the road.

Pray your parts recite their purposes – quite cold.
