A fine song for the road


…why is it there aren’t many British road songs?

Or is it simply that because of the size of the Countries that make up the UK, there isn’t much uncharted territory?

Either way, Richard Thompson aimed for this to be an English road song, and researched it, and still has the requisite amount of love, tragedy and adventure. He is an utter legend, and if you haven’t heard this song before, you are in for a treat…

The title of the song refers to a very rare English motorbike, or so I’m told.
