Seaford Head - Nelson & his Yamaha 125
Nelson's first motorised transport, the Yamaha 125cc AS3. A beautiful little engine could spin up to 9,000 rpm with no worries. The AS3 had a top speed of 85 mph (92 downhill) it was a lot of fun to learn to ride on and develop your road sense in relative safety and get you to college of time.
The RD 250 with clip-ons, racing seat and tank
His second machine was the Yamaha RD 250. A very capable machine, fast acceleration (wheelies) and good for a ton. Many sporting enthusiasts followed the racing successes of Yarno Sarinnen (the Flying Finn) then bought the road going version of the water-cooled TZ250. Later, Nelson fitted a full fairing for even more street cred.
