Motorcycle Haiku Contest Entries and Winner

Of all the great entries in the Ridermagazine.com motorcycle haiku poetry contest, one Kevin Fuller’s tome proved his literary mettle and, for his enviable brevity and brio in haiku stylistics, Fuller took home the prize.

Thought we’d just provide you with a sample of the entries in case you missed them

 

Freedom of the Road

A Life of Motorcycling

Is Spent Behind Bars

 

Dwayne Akers:
Camping and riding

Pressing on until sunset

I’ll eat well tonight

 

Dwayne Akers:

Ocean and desert

Mountains and twisty roads

Ride in California

 

Dwayne Akers:
Beezer 441

Cost me only eighty bucks

Long lost high school love

 

Dwayne Akers:

Thrown down in the dirt

Kawi Five Hundred two stroke

I’m too old for this

 

lucky e:

Form follows function.

Become one with the landscape

others only “see”

 

Roelof Veldhuis:

So cold, gale force winds

Preparing my bike indoors

We will be out there soon!

 

Nick Zarras:

Sun sets and I ride

Headlights paint nature by command

Vampire riders rule night

 

Michael Long:

Triumph Bonnie revs,

Open throttle, leaning hard,

Curves transform to lines.

 

Kip Weiss:

Pull choke,turn the key

The green button brings it life.

The smell of heaven.

 

Michele Carlton:

Two wheels on the road

And miles of highway ahead

Life is beyond good!

 

Michele Carlton:

Wind, smells, light & sky

The sense of freedom & joy

Yes, today I ride!

 

Joshua Law:

Safety wire pulled tight

Titanium symphony

Metallic heaven

 

Scott:

12 below today

Gold Wing parked in friend’s garage

Man, I miss summer!

 

Nicky Zarras:

It should be

I see the sun rise

The wind blows over my windscreen

My soul breathes again

 

Rory Anderson:

Two wheels move the soul

Twisties curve through the mountain

Freedom is fleeting




Insuring your collectible or vintage motorcycle

As for insurance for your collectible motorcycle? You should be able to get Agreed Value coverage on a classic 1959 BSA Gold Star Catalina valued at $15,000 for somewhere around $25 a month, and that gives you the whole shooting match of coverage.

You can spend a lot less, but if you plan to ride the bikes in your collection, the above pricing is a reasonable approximation of what you can expect to pay.
