Girls on bikes once again (for Luc)

Well Luc, you asked for it, so here it comes...

From Russia, with love...
Maybe the dog will win?

Or This one, from England? I'm sure you recognize the young lady....

Watch out, here come the cops And what happened to her helmet ?

Don't think this lady likes the cops that much, but she does have a helmet.

And this one (Leslie, the Queen of Speed, you are...wonderful) is much too fast for any of us....

And this is where it all began, maybe. Hey, wait a minute....


  1. There lived a certain man in Russia long ago
    He was big and strong, in his eyes a flaming glow
    Most people looked at him with terror and with fear
    But to Moscow chicks he was such a lovely dear
    He could teach TO RIDE A BIKE Like a preacher
    Full of ecstasy and fire
    But he also was the kind of teacher
    Women would desire

    Rah, rah, Rasputin
    Rider of Royal Enfield .....

  2. Royal Enfield Luc? Looks more like a Russian version of my very first bike: a BSA Bantam (2-stroke). This machine's original design and engine was actually by the German DKW firm and was given to the allies as war reparation.
    This should give you another chance at some of your doggerel verse!

    1. I was being purely formal, there, Enfield halfway rhyming with Rasputin ans still in the song’s tempo. I was in no way descriptive.
      Dampf-Kraft-Wagen it is then. Here I go:
      “Riding on my bike, smoking Lucky Strike
      The only time I'm happy's when I play my guitar
      Ahh, ahh .... N.S.U !”
      Isn’t this the “crème de la crème” ?

    This is another reaction.

  4. And ....... that'd be Marianne Faithful on from " Girl on a Motorcycle

    1. Is it true she sang « Broken English » after she took a tumble in front of Lucy Jordan ?

  5. Dead right Guitar. Any guesses on the Russian lady?

    1. That’s an easy one: Tatiana Romanova, of course !

    2. Mmm. But the man in the blue helmet doesn't look like Sean Connery

    3. No, you’re right: more like .... Judi Dench !!!!!
