Hilda Wright celebrates 102nd birthday in style
A 102-year-old Grandma had her birthday wish come true after she got the chance to sit astride the very same bike ridden by her hero Valentino Rossi at last year's Isle of Man TT.Hilda Wright celebrated her 102nd birthday aboard Rossi's Yamaha 2009 YZF-R1 after her grandson-in-law, Steve Shaw, tracked down the machine ridden by the nine-time world motorcycle champion at the 2009 TT."It’s something different and I got the bike in especially," Mr Shaw told the Manchester Evening News."It really made her day. It’s not the usual way you’d expect a lady of 102 to celebrate but she just lapped it up."

Go, Hilda! My whole family are going to fight over my bike when I die! I've told them when I'm too unsteady to get my leg down I'm going to have it triked! My husband loves to watch people's faces when we park up and a middle-aged grandma gets off.
And Space Cake, let's hope you've got enough brain cells left to even consider it when you're 102...
