Morning light creeping through the window..
Sound of the garage door as it opens..
Glimmer of chrome and paint..
Smell of gas and oil, leather and sweat..
Rubber creaking on concrete..
Jiffy spring pulling taunt..
A pull on the choke and five easy twists..
Second kick to life and the rumble..
Power, vibration and sound..
Slight pull of the clutch..
Loud clack of 1st gear..
Pull of torque and horsepower..
Roar of the pipes echo..
Whine of the road under your soul..
Feel of the wind on your skin..
