A female pillion passenger is the focus of attention here, as she mockingly powders her face before holding on for a muddy ride through a pond-like puddle in Carshalton. She’s also shown gleefully shaking the hand of the driver after the ride and coolly chewing gum. A number of other bikers are also shown in action, clattering along muddy tracks and frequently getting stuck in a gargantuan puddle.
