bagatelle

Now there's a word you don't often see these days ;-)

=====

There was a fast and twisty downhill stretch of two lane road not far from Helston, in Cornwall, which I used to refer to as 'the bagatelle run'.  Perched up on a motorbike, as opposed to sat lower in a car, you could often see three or more bends ahead, and if they were empty you could use both lanes and run almost straight down the middle.  There were no side roads or farm gates to spoil the fun.  But the dirt banks on either side were well scuffed where drivers with a less advantageous viewpoint had 'bounced off the bumpers'.

Drivers of Range Rovers or similar high-seated  vehicles treated it with the same cavalier approach.

Going uphill the view was nowhere near as good so I rode accordingly.

(Like hirsute, but requires you to wear a purse on your head.  This has never become a mainstream fashion, even amongst the most gullible of fashionistas.)
