For biker scribe Eddie ‘Sorez’ Pliska, poetry is as much about capturing his passion for the moto lifestyle and the raw energy of two-wheeled travel in prose, as it is about documenting determination in the face of the often-harsh struggles of life. He has had his fair share of both.

Here is Sorez's exclusive February piece, titled Winds of Change, about braving the toils of winter riding while always keeping your eyes on the road ahead ... both literally and figuratively.

Sorez, a contributing writer for Outlaw Biker Magazine who also has a popular book of poetry out, graciously pens some inspiration for the NYC Motorcyclist community each month. You can read more about Sorez in a feature NYC Motorcyclist published in the spring of 2018.

Winds of Change

Sunrise upon the horizon
In the rear-view, the past is forlorn
The road before me unwinds
Gas tank full, my bike’s ready to roll
No thought to frost that fogs my visor
Double-gloved fingers twisting throttle
Gripping handlebars, riding hard
Down the road despite the cold
Temperature does not matter at all
Two wheels, forward motion, into wind
She starts, I ride, there’s no bout a doubt it
As seasons unfold out there on the road
Another year older, a bit grayer than before
Still in the saddle every chance that I get
These roads I ride are a calling at times
Instead of riding away, I’m rolling towards
Winds of change, as Siren’s call

Eddie ‘Sorez’ Pliska
