As you can see in my profile pic, I like to ride. Been riding for over twenty years and I attempted to capture my feeling of the ride.

A look at the clock feeds longing
Well seen by a knowing eye
The day of clarity tempered 
With boredom shown on blue sky
Social preachers all scurry home
In the wake of life's violent storm
Though some prefer to live by riding 
The road is only then its true form
The freedom it offers confuse outsiders 
Where all they see with ignorant eyes
The faithful in line to devotion 
Decide who shall hear their cries
Souls in sync with a common bond 
Expressed through a wave of their glove 
The greeting of the chosen today
As they pass in positions they love
For this is a journey they will live
Til daily creep leaves them old
Friends in time who lean with pride
For a story of riding now told
