I hope that first shot was taken by a passenger ... the D750 is a little bulky to one hand hold while driving!! And Happy Birthday and best wishes to your daughter!!

Yeah, my wife was driving, and her elephant on the dash was navigating. I was enjoying the ride up (I had to drive back home at night).

My favorite vehicle for driving in a circle or figure eight in a parking lot (power-sliding during driving schools I volunteer at), is unfortunately...buried...

I store it in the driveway all winter, under a car cover, with the battery pulled.

Beautiful looking machine and a great image!!

I'll admit I have never had or ridden a true motorcycle. I have lived places where having one would have been a complete joy (especially when I was at Vandenberg AFB north of Santa Barbara - loads of glorious backroads there that I know who'd have been fun.) But every time I get the urge to investigate, it starts raining for several days in a row ... and my enthusiasm goes away!!

Metro; technically the local subway, but rather elevated by the time it gets to Wallsend. (Partly because the line goes up, partly because the land goes down).

One of the more famous means of transport is Turbinia, built by Sir Charles Parsons, and shown off to the embarrassment of the Royal Navy at Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee Naval Review in 1897. She's currently on display at the Discovery Museum in Newcastle

For short to medium range trips, cars are the way to go for me...

On this trip, we took my wife's Honda CRV, as there were three of us, and my (big) dog Charley, along with several birthday and baby gift's for my daughter, who turn 30 today, and who is due in about one month...

Wow - best wishes to your daughter (and to you and your wife)!
