I recently re-discovered a great Lou Reed tune in which he talks about his Kaw GPZ. (Thanks to Rick Kelley for the assistance on the re-find). In the song "New Sensations" from the album of the same name (1984) Lou sings:
"I took my GPZ out for a ride,
the engine felt good between my thighs.
The air felt cold, it was 40 degrees outside.
I rode to Pennsylvania through the Delaware gap,
sometimes I got nervous had to check the map,
I stopped at roadside diner for a burger and a coke."
Later he sings: "I love that GPZ so much you know that I could kiss her."
Okay so he ain't riding a Beemer, but he is Rounder material (40 degree ride) and he likes to stop for food!
So what are your favorite motorcycle related lyrics? OR what is your favorite instrumental tune that puts you in the riding mood? Or both.
Help me oh Moderator(s) I thought I was putting this in the Campfire. Dang it!
