World's worst pillion passenger


Bikers from around Britain have voted and the world's least desirable pillion passenger is... Gordon Brown.

More than a third of riders polled in a Bridgestone Tyres' survey said the floundering PM was the person they'd hate to have aboard their machine the most.

A close second was Jeremy Clarkson, who's expressed his anti-bike views loud and clear over the years anyway and at 6'5 would probably be a lanky liability.

But a surprising third most unpopular pillion turned out to be that gobby glamour girl Jordan, who earned herself 17 percent of the vote - presumably because her airbags are too big to squeeze on the back. Or maybe just because she never shuts up.

We don't like to reignite old rivalries but in 2005, Jordan's equally chesty rival – and avid motorbike fan - Jodie Marsh was voted the MOST desirable pillion in the world in a similar survey.

Most recently, though, it's been former Moto GP and Gadget Show presenter Suzi Perry who's topped world's best motorbike passenger chart, winning a recent poll on Visordown.

Who would you want to ride with? We nominate Leslie Porterfield, a six-foot 32-year old American blonde, who recently hit 234mph on a Suzuki Hayabusa at the Bonneville Salt Flats. At least she'd know what to do...
