Roll Me Away

Took a look down a westbound road
Right away I made my choice
Headed out to my big two-wheeler
I was tired of my own voice
Took a bead on the northern plains
And just rolled that power on

Stood alone on a mountain top
Starin' out at the great divide
I could go east, I could go west
It was all up to me to decide
Just then I saw a young hawk flyin'
And my soul began to rise
And pretty soon
My heart was singin'

Roll, roll me away
I'm gonna roll me away tonight
Gotta keep rollin', gotta keep ridin'
Keep searchin' till I find what's right

(Bob Seger - Roll Me Away)

Custom BMW motorcycle, probably based on a R75 or R90.

I've been interested in motorcycles for a few years now. I'm following several blogs and websites. If you're interested in motorcycles as well, you might like the following links:

At the moment, I'm thinking about replacing my car with aa motorcycle next year. I'm still undecided which one it's gonna be... but I do know that I really like the Japanese ones.

I'm leaving in a few minutes to watch tonight's football match... so far, Euro 2012 hasn't been as exciting as the 2010 World Cup though.

Enjoy your evening, and have a nice weekend.

Cool BMW! It is pleasure that you exchange for a motorcycle! In Japan, since Euro 2012 is broadcast in the Midnight, it is want of sleep...

Actually, even though I love Norton and Triumph motorcycles, I'm most likely going to buy a Japanese motorcycle... I'm just undecided whether it's gonna be a Honda or a Kawasaki.
