The feeling of pumping adrenaline
The rush of the howling wind
The warmth of the hot, summer sun
The smooth, carefree roads

The feeling of unbearable numbness
The rush of a thousand bullets piercing skin
The biting cold of the icy water
The bumpy, pothole riddled road

The tight, protective leather
The soft, red helmet
The rubber, supporting footrest
The reassuring, strong handhold strap

The choking, rough polyester helmet strap
The unforgivable, itchy chaps
The unprotecting, airy converse
The fingerless, loose leather gloves

The noise of the softly growling motor
The sound of cars quickly whooshing by
The beat of the comforting radio
The sound of a thousand voices

The noise of exposed skin crying for help
The sound of dog barking and howling
The blast of commanding thunder
The sound of a million cars honking

This was seriously such an amazing poem!  The imagery was freaking awesome - I felt like I was there. I love it!
