The motorcycle in question was a friends who had been working on it for many months in his garage, evetually the big day arrived and he set off, ( not too far) and it stopped. No matter how many times he kicked it off it would not restart, so thats what he's doing, the helmet has been discarded and extra warm clothing  as  well whilst he sits waiting for it to behave itself and start. I liked the shadows cast by the gate and the chevrons. In the background is St Lawrences church in Scalby.
