What a fantastic sound !

The occasional thought of selling my F1 Sport goes out the window when I watch one of these videos, nothing could ever replace it. I expect the arthritis will beat me in the end...…….

|Did'nt spot the fork judder under breaking before, minor issue with that soundtrack !

Regards all, Terry.

You are right about the arthritis Terry,mine gives me all sorts of grief if I ride any sort of distance evil,but winding the old Classic round past the "five and a half grand"rpm cool in the lower gears and that howl makes it all worth while(just take more pain killers wink)J.B.

That's it, the sound and the way torque is delivered and the crackle as you 'blip' and change down, nothing else like it. The fact she's electric start is a huge bonus. My little Triumph twin is kick but , luckily, an easy starter.
As is said, keep on 'truckin !

Regards, Terry.

Follow-up:

There are now quite a few races up on YouTube from the Glory Years of the Norton Rotary Racers and they're quite a lot of fun.
You could spend a few days analyzing all that's there. There are also a few ride-around tests of the street machines

PS: There are stories about YouTube getting ready to cull uploads Real Soon Now. It would be a shame if the PC Standards Committee (Division of the Party Central Committee) took a look at all of this and DNF'd the History of this great Racing.

Watch it all while you can.
