A Ride On My Suzuki - Poem by Stephen Loomes

Might go for a ride on my Suzuki
It's a 'gixxer' one thousand
And you know that it is true
Not many can beat this Suzie L2

Here in Coffs Harbour
With a beach down the street
And hills growing bananas
Life is almost complete
But with a bike in the shed
It's white and it's blue
There no more you need
Believe me its true.

I am going to ride up Bruxner hill
Where the bananas all grow
Through the tight little corners
With the farms down below
That bike sure can travel
In a straight line it flies
Faster than birds can take to the sky

Up this mountain road
The corners are great
But look out for gravel
Before it's too late

At the crest of the hill
Out of the cornering motion
Glance back down behind
At the blue Pacific Ocean
Then on through the forest
Its moist and pure air
But it's damp on the corners
Slow up and take care
Then out through the meadows
Along Max's straight
The front wheel it lifts
Then before it's too late
Through the gears with quick shifts
Foot and lever, engine revving, brakes on
Pulling up at the corner
Of the Bucca junction.
