Re: The new Norton

Having had 2 triumphs and still owning one their quality control is fine from my point of view...

Re: new bike thoughts

Re: Norton

I had the fortune of test riding a 1200 thruxton R when I took my tiger in for a service a while back, that 1200 engine is amazing fun on a cafe racer style bike! Would never get old!
