Merry Christmas!

If Clement Moore rode a FJR...

Twas the ride before Christmas
When all along highways and roads with tolls
Nothing was stirring
No, not even a soul

The Yamaha in the garage
Prepped with great care
Ready to tackle some miles
And spread some cheer

The FJR riders were nestled
All safe in their beds
While visions of long-distance rides
Danced in their heads

I mount my steed
Press the button on my right
Iím greeted with a roar
As the engine comes to life

Outside, the air a bit frigid
Frost kissing the trees
Heading south, I go
In quest of a reprieve

With a rhythm I ride
Quickly passing town after town
Eating up the miles
Hoping LEOs donít slow me down

A few stops for fuel
Then back on the road
The bike's engine singing
Merrily handling the load

During the ride
Who should appear
But Santa himself
On a red, 2014 model year

He was dressed all in hi-viz
From his feet to his ears
His clothes brightly glistened
Even the Gerbings heated gear

His eyes, how they twinkled
Through the electric windscreen
Which he lowered for me
My doubting eyes taking in the scene

He had a broad face

And a round little belly
That shook when he crossed tar snakes
Like a bowl full of jelly

Placing his feet on the seat
The bike jostled, but not much
The front tire rose in the air
As he smoothly popped the clutch

Both wheels back on the road
He gave the riderís wave and a wink,
Rolled on the throttle
And was miles away in a blink

But I heard him exclaim
As he rode out of sight,
"Happy Christmas FJR riders
And to all a good night!"
