My 16th birthday.

Yamaha FSIE just over a year old £165 (saved from paper round and gardening works), did 25k miles in 15 months on it.

Insurance, fully comp was £14 a year and petrol was 60p a gallon and 5p for 2 stroke oil.

Ace bars were £10 and Dunlop TT100's were £12 rear and £10 front.

Now some of you babies will think wow that was cheap, in context after I did a year at college sorting out fecked up GCE's I went to work for an insurance Co as a trainee Lloyds broker and my net after tax income was....... £46 a month and I had to commute Gravesend to London every day.
