There are four images of four political party leaders on different kinds of motor bikes, each making a satirical reference to the style of the party's present political campaign in the run up to the election. The first is Prime Minister, Helen Clark, on a little Honda motor scooter with an 'L' plate going slowly, "Notice how slow I'm going..."; the second is of National Party leader, Don Brash, on a huge souped-up motor bike looking anxious, "Get your motor running head out on the highway born to be mild..."; the third is of Peter Dunne, Leader of United Future looking sensible, "Note the sensible United Future training wheels..."; and the last is of Rod Donald, co-leader of the Greens, on a Green bike which gets its power from a composting toilet inside which, and invisible, is co-leader of the Greens, Jeanette Fitzsimons."Could you make more of an effort Jen, we're hardly moving...!" Winston Peters, leader of New Zealand First launched his campaign from the back of a motorbike which was driven onstage.
