Biker Poetry By Sorez The Scribe
Ed Pliska AkA Eddie Sorez AkA Sorez The Scribe
Born in Brooklyn New York in 1961, Eddie 'Sorez'
Pliska picked up the very first issue of EasyRiders
magazine at the tender age of ten and fell in love
with the Biker lifestyle. At thirteen he bought
his first Harley. The Italian import 350cc sprint
model. Bought it for five hundred bucks and walked
it home ten miles away. Since it in no way could
even start on it's own. He spent a few days figuring
out the wiring problems and then fired it up and
throttled up and down the paths of Conduit
Boulevard on the greens, in Brooklyn New York.
In between the highways of cagers passing by.
He wound up quitting high school being more high
than schooled. His early years of being taught came
from the street. Involved in the street scene he
aquired status with a street Patch. In the ClubHouse
he found family and frienship. Some who are to this
very day his Brothers and Friends after thirty plus
years now. When Sorez quit high school, he remembers
and attributes his carreer as a Scribe to one caring
teacher who said to him, "Do Not Ever Give
Up Writing, One Day Your Works Shall Be Read".
She must have been a Sage. Because to this very day,
the works of Sorez The Scribe are still being read.
Online and in magazines. His first ever Published Poem
was in Outlaw Biker Magazine back in '82. In '86 he hit
the pages of EasyRider. Their Fifteenth Anniversary
Issue. Outlaw kept him on for more than a few years and
Sorez almost snagged a book deal with then assistant
editor Sundance. After talking to Casey, the Editor in
Chief, found out Sundance was gone from the magazine,
and the deal wash squashed.
That did not in any way dismay Sorez. He kept on
riding and writing. Having hundreds of Scribes and
thousands of miles under his belt he continued on
Scribing. Heartfelt words towards the Brotherhood he
cared about. To this very day he still cares about.
Many of his works face the battle that our Brotherhood
still confronts. Respect, disrespect, territory, Rico
and the Feds. Religion and politics. In conversation
don't get him kiskstarted regarding cops.
At sixteen years of age, Sorez purchased a 1969
Triumph Boneville basketcase. Only thing original
he kept from the purchase was the motor and front
frame section. Every week for the next year he used
most of his paycheck to rebuild his Trumpet from the
ground up. Working in a machine shop at the time,
parts he could not locate he made.Wrenching seemed
to come naturally to Sorez. With a little help from
Chiltons' of course.
Sorez rode that hardtail chopped solo ride,
affectionately named "Bonnie", for more than a few
years. Until that fateful day when a cager took her
out right from underneath him and sent Sorez flying
through the air as if he had wings. He healed up soon
enough, but his beloved Trumpet was totalled. Relagated
to status of basketcase once again, Sorez sold it and
bought a Sporty that needed a hell of alot of work to
make it roadworthy.
All those years in the wind gave Sorez much to write
about. So when Outlaw Biker magazine hit the newstand,
he jumped at the opportunity to submit his Biker Poetry.
Headstrong beyond the pink slips, many of his Scribes
found their way through. And for a few years his work
was regularly seen within Outlaws' covers as Sorez The
Scribe. At the time, not being paid for his
contributions did not matter to Eddie Sorez. He had
established himself as a legitimate Biker Poet.
Thousands of miles and many Rides later, Sorez found
himself volunteering for a handicapped childrens'
sports league in Southern New Jersey. From 1998-2001,
he wrote their monthly newsletter. In the capacity of
Editor, Publisher, Reporter, Photographer and even
printer. He also licked many stamps insuring the
issues went out on time as scheduled. As well as
coaching the kids on their field of dreams. Sorez also
participated in many radio and television interviews
promoting the organization. Eddie Sorez was awarded a
plaque from the Township and the "Buddy Ball" Sports
League for his sincere effort for, "Allowing all
children, no matter their abilities, to participate
In 2002, Thunder Roads published his work titled, "The
Day They Outlawed All Bikers" hardcopy. After that,
downtime hit Sorez bigtime. His popular Biker Poetry
website crashed and burned. He lost his license and
Ride. And his Ol' lady died in his arms. All in the
same year. Things got so bad, Sorez found himself in a
padded room. Few heard from him after his escape. That
is up until now. Sorez surfaced on the East coast once
again. Scribing, stronger than ever before. Recently
he has been chosen as the House Poet for
VTwin Biker.com. Some of his past and current works
can be seen upon that righteous site. Sorez sends
thanks and respect out to Q-Ball for that honor.
With legal battles behind him, and financial concerns
being addressed, Sorez the Scribe is optimistic towards
the coming years. Back where he belongs. On Two Wheels
and Open Roads. The Wind his Mistress, his Muse, Who
waiting patiently for his return...
