Judi Sutherland: Sunday Bikers

Gleaming Kawasaki with a brand new tax disc
speeding like a demon through Eleven Bends of Death
with a cargo of teenage daredevil show-off
and a pillion-riding passenger who daren’t draw breath.

Easy Rider Harley with a six-speed gearbox
roaring down the A-roads in a flash of chrome
with a cargo of balding, overweight businessman
plenty of adrenalin but low testosterone.

Dirty British Triumph with a soot-clogged tailpipe
backfires down the bypass on a dangerous lean
with a cargo of greasy-haired leatherclad metalhead
Rizla papers, cider and Kerangg magazine.
