Motorcycle Meteorologist

February 8, 2010

Wrote this poem because it is apparent most motorcyclists check the weather quite diligently before riding. Some actually do a rather in depth check on the internet.


Near wind blown shores

or lonesome isles,

Before I ride

a salt-spray mile.


The RADAR check

and forecast day,

Before I ride

past corn or hay.


Up mountains grand,

down gorges deep.

Before I ride,

dewpoints to keep.


On highways swift,

or back roads slow.

Before I ride,

check frontal lows.


Through gathering storms,

or sunshine fair.

Before I ride,

dissect the air.
