A newly-built Hounslow residential area forms the backdrop to this twilight adventure that sees two young lads show off their shiny motorcycles before taking some female friends for a spin. In skirts, heels and headscarves instead of helmets, the fearless ladies excitedly ride pillion down Bath Road. En route they pass Henlys Jaguar showroom, one of the biggest Jaguar and Rover dealerships in the country that gave its name to the roundabout.
