The Niikon looks a bit silly, but the Tricity 300 has real practical appeal for car drivers.

Elf Yamaha GP racer

I don't remember the Elf Yamaha. ELF Honda, yes. With (among others) Rocket Ron Haslam on board IIRC

My sister/grandfather shared a birthday.It's more common than one would expect - you only need 23 random people to have a 50% chance of a shared birthday

A long and winding road, sir. But I notice that my first motorbike (a 1952 Francis-Barnett) will be seventy next year. And still on the DVLA register. Somebody somewhere is taking more care of it than I did. :D
