R1-D1

I, Robot – in 2017 Yamaha displayed their autonomous riding motorcycle being hurled around a racetrack at speed. Today is the 99th birthday of science writer Isaac Asimov who created the three rules of robotics:

  1. First Law – A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
  2. Second Law – A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
  3. Third Law – A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.

Tuning Fork 

Fazer Shadow – when picking up some new spark plugs and coils for the Mini I spied this 80’s Yamaha in the lot. It belonged to one of the auto parts store sale people. It’s basically a baby V-Max. In-line 4 700cc. A cool looking roadster.
