A New Game - Versys Verses

So many of us wax poetic about our Vs that I though it would be fun to do so in actual poetry. The only rule, in honor of our bike's Japanese origins, is to use standard Haiku form (5/7/5 syllable lines). Three examples, to start:

Nimble, comely V
Now to make you truly mine
Farkler's paradise


Flick the throttle, thus:
60, 90 - OMG!
Pause to catch my breath...


This one really rocks!
Music made with wheels, not strings
Love my Flying V

goes through the water.

There once was a girl from Nantucket

Who wanted a brand new brain bucket
To wear on her Versys

But she looked in her purses
And said, "Well, I'm broke so...guess I'll keep using my old helmet."

Damn! Bones beat me to the limerick.

So much more fun than haiku...

Whitehorse Press is going out of business so it's time for a final sale. Signed copies of my book are now $10 with free shipping in the U.S. while they last.

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Some poems rhyme
but this one doesn't.

Sorry - couldn't resist. Here's a real one...

Green is the fastest
Plasma blue is good as well
Non-Versys bikes smell

I ride it for miles

Another Bones-Special, the Burma Shave:


Whipping through corners
Nothing's better
Tarmac or gravel
Doesn't matter

While making a dotted line pass

The Versys guy zipped past a lass
She'd been carving the gaps

And was hot in her chaps
So he called out to her, "Hey, nice helmet! Is that new?"
