A Bikerís Christmas Gift List
So what would you hope for this Christmas Day?
Is it something Santa can fit on his sleigh?
Now remember his sleigh is two wheels and chrome
That sounds like thunder from home to home.
He brings us the road and the wind in our hair
And those that deliver the occasional stare.
He brings us a lifestyle and a culture our own
And he made us all brothers so weíre never alone
He brings us our rallies and toy runs and gear
And he gave us the ability to stare down a fear.
He knows we like t-shirts and leather and lace
And an undying need to pick up the pace.
He knows we like parties and custom beer mugs
And even the usual teeth full of bugs.
We like swap meets and bike parts, old and new
And buckles and belts and black boots too.
So what will you ask of the jolly oleí guy
Whose chrome reflects off the cold winter sky?
Will it be goodies or garments or parts or a spare;
A new seat or bags or new tins if you dare.
Now these all would be great, fine gifts I would say
But hereís some suggestions, if I may:
Iíll take more time to ride and more biker days
More winding roads and more sun rays
Iíll take more biker friends old and new
And a guardian angel to watch over me too
Iíll take the wind and the rush and the smells in the air
And brothers and sisters everywhere.
Iíll take the feeling of freedom, itís my therapy
Cause riding is all that I hoped it would be!
Saying for the dayÖ..
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good ride!
