There was drama 'on the road' yesterday afternoon, when a motorcyclist drew stares from other road users by making a strange maneuver whilst hurtling along at a speed approaching 50mph.
The rider leant over to non-throttle side of the motorbike, and, whilst keeping both of his feet on the footrests, lifted his right arsecheek off the saddle momentarily, before resuming the normal riding position.
It was first thought that the man's underpants must have got stuck in his arsecrack, and he was attempting to dislodge them, but a later development ruled this out.
Moys Kenwood, 55, witnessed the event, and said:
"He lives near us. My wife saw him later, and asked him about it. He said he'd had a fart brewing, and had to make room so that it could escape."
Nobody was injured in the incident, but it could all have ended so differently.
With the motorcycle rider following through, for example.
