Easy Rider the 1969 American road movie starring Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper and including a memorable appearance from Jack Nicholson told the story of two bikers who travelled through the American South.

The landmark counter-culture film captured the blown imaginations of the hippie movement with the music, drugs and the iconic Harley Davidson ” chopper bikes ” which helped establish once more biker rebellion not seen since Marlon Brando in The Wild One.

The movie sound track featured many great songs and included The Band, Jimi Hendrix and Steppenwolf whose song Born to be Wild lyrics epitomises a bikers appearance and attitude

Get your motor running
Head out on the highway
Looking for adventure
In what ever comes our way

The Russian president Vladimir Putin is fond of joining up with the country’s biker gang Night Wolves or Nochniye Volki. Putin partial to a bit of macho posturing, don’s his leather jacket, blue jeans and heads out on the highway looking for adventure for a bit of street cred with the populous.

So could our own Mr David Cameron who has lately changed his appearance to one of ” the man of the people ” with no jacket rolled up shirt sleeves  and sweating brow see some potential votes ?.

Will he shortly be seen sporting his Hells Angels colours and like Don Henley’s Boys of Summer have a dead head sticker on his ministerial Rover……. I’d love to see that, just a thought.
