I got my first driving licence (for a motorbike) in 1965!

Doesn't time fly when you are enjoying yourself.

Thought it was time to have a bit of reflection and drew up these two lists of all the bikes and cars I have owned (or at least can remember owning). They are listed in date order of purchase (if my memory serves) and yellow highlighted ones are still with me.

The list includes a few green highlighted to show that, for various reasons, I never actually put them 'on the road'.
