Probably my last run on a Norton for a Year!

Out today for a last run on my Norton Commando, its always satisfying, even on a cold (and occasionally wet) day like today. I've said it before and I'll say it again, there is no other British Classic which is as good to ride, its quick enough for modern traffic, smooth and is just a brilliant bike. Why am I not using it for the Americas trip I hear you all saying, it requires plenty TLC & maintenance to keep it going and even though I've got a year, to do the same journey on the Commando might take longer or would certainly involve more "maintenance days".
I'll keep a note of the "glad I'm not on the Commando" days, that may be interesting.


  1. Hi Gino, your Blog is great to read on my nice new Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (All thanks to Fiona) l hope you both have a great trip over and that the bikes and kit are in one piece at the other end. I'll keep reading if you keep writing. All the best George & Amanda

  2. What a run, clearly nothing like what we used to do when I was part of the Faircity MCC....I'm now living and working in Antigua in the caribbean....and now further inspired to restore my 81 Kawa Z650....Have a great trip will be following the blogs....:-)
