Re: Norton in administration

Guffcart still laying on the whitewash...no shame https://www.cyclenews.com/2020/02/article/norton-motorcycles-enters-administration/ Indeed, a disappointing puff piece after the fact.

Re: Norton in administration

......And the MCN reporters who gushingly and unquestioningly hung on Garner's every word should be ashamed of themselves. Norton didn't buy any advertising, so why did Garner get a free ride? To be fair, in my opinion they should just be ashamed of themselves anyway. All that gushing wasn't just r...

Re: had to be done!

Interested in one of these, love the looks, especially in that white/red striped tank colour, but been totally unaware up till now. What's this 'UK made' and 'UK' version on about? Please clue me in. Also, what kind of price are they? and what about dealerships and warranty - widely available? test...

I suspect also he is of the personality type that cannot see he's done anything wrong and the rules didn't apply to him.
I think the word your avoiding is Arsehole

Re: computers and bike trip planning imbalance.

I quite like my Garmin (390), and of course I already have it, it's ruggedised to cope with the vibration of sitting on a bike for day after day, even in the pouring rain and I find it easy to use.

Re: Tracing an old bike
