  5. Lovely bike.

    Bit disappointed that you don't get to hear the engine in the video. I guess your screams of glee probably drowned it out :p

  6. The dude operating the ferry gate looks very motivated by his job.

    I guess, he's 'living the dream'.
  7. Well done - amazing, amazing, amazing.
  8. I love Commandos, very nice.
    One day I'll put a Norton in my shed (y)
  9. I still miss MrsB's IIA. Big valves, lumpy pistons, single gigantic Mikun, hollow peashooters and no brakes to speak of. A terrifying streak of noise and oil which would, on mixed going, stay with big Jap aircoolers. My most vivid memory is of rocketing a potential buyer off the back when i gave it a handful out of a T-junction on the demo ride. Tramped it into second and opened the tap and there was this sudden sense of emptiness behind me and a pair of feet in my armpits :D.
