Ever wondered what’s beneath a biker’s leathers? No? Well we’re going to show you anyway.

Fourteen brave members of the East Northants Classic Motorcycle Club (ENCMC) have stripped off to raise cash for the Spinal Injuries Association, which supports and campaigns for people suffering from spinal injuries. Specialist insurance broker Bikesure, which provides cover for almost anything on two wheels, has sponsored the calendar.

ENCMC member Chris Saunders said: “On a cold dark December night whilst eating fish and chips at the annual Christmas do for East Northants Classic Motorcycle Club the idea of the calendar came about but, instead of using sticky buns, we would use motorcycle parts instead.

“Thus on a cold rainy day in April we got our kit off and bared our bellies, bums and bikes to the elements and Anna the photographer. We had so much fun even when our trousers got mixed up and some of us ended up with the wrong clothes. We had an excellent day and we want to raise as much money for the cause.”

The calendar can be bought from the SIA’s website, priced at £9.99.

Every day three people are paralysed for life by damage to their spinal cord. There are an estimated 40,000 people in the UK with spinal cord Injury, and the SIA helps them and their families to return to full independence – from the moment of injury – for the rest of their lives.
