    Fine road, great guitar. I think that Busa needs some get up and go or a telescopic lense. Yes, I think my bird and I could keep up with that Norton.

    Yes, and well, Yes.

    No Nugent, and on a Suzuki with only 940 fewer cc's.

    But, they are lovely bikes.

    Great vid. Well ridden Norton! Visions of Mike Hailwood, bolt upright and haulin' the hay.
    Great music. Some Nuge and then some Audioslave on next video. I likes me some Audioslave/Soundgarden.

    But, then, the pious optimism and the glib theatricality are disturbed every now and again by intrusions of shattering realities.

    I doubt I could keep up with him, no matter what I was riding. Nice to see an old Norton so well taken care of.
    It costs how much?!

    That brings back memories: right side shift, 1 up and 3 down.
