about

Even with the rash of new motorway building in the early 70's, the UK has never had the roads to make the Easy Rider style of biking a viable culture. We did however have a"ton-up" culture of speed trials centered around roadside cafe's and motorway service stations. The bikes were light and powerful and the object was to hit the ton..100mph.....

lyrics

Tarmac ribbon from outside the coffee bar
it can take him to wherever you are
no collar jacket and bubble visor lid
zipped up tight and tucked into the wind.

Put the jukebox on and head out onto the road
Make her run to the ton and beat the 45 home
Two pots one pipe growling and raw
hear him outside he don't have to ring the door.

Cafe racer
riding free
under the sky yeah
under the sky!
