    I just installed a set of the new generation SBN that I bought from a gent that sold his Norton. Definitely a steeper upswept angle. They sound a little raspier. I like the original SBN a little better. Deeper and throatier just a touch but both are excellent. Happy about the way they are on hangers too. So......last piece of damage to change is the primary cover. I'll get to that later on. I'm having too much fun.

    Hi Richard,
    This is a pub 'The Bulls Head' on the Stratford Road which runs from Solihull to the south of Birmingham, where I live, through some nice little villages Hampton in Arden and Wootton Wawen where this is located on to Stratford on Avon. An excellent route for a summertime bicycle based pub crawl.

    I considered buying one of these. I went with the naked instead. Maybe the future holds for one of these for me

    Just back from Brattleboro and Guilford where the life of Stanley Lynde was celebrated.

    Stanley brought my '75 Norton 850 back to life in 2011 after I had given up. All he required was a service manual. When I picked it up he told me his only regret is that he didn't have time to test ride it himself.

    Naturally, I went to Stanley when the wheel bearing blew out on my 961 rear wheel. Despite being busy as heck the day I brought the wheel into his shop, he stopped what he was doing and analyzed it in quick fashion. He was the first to declare that nothing I did caused the bearing to fail. I sent his recommendation to Norton UK that same day.

    Why would anyone do that?
    I have the.....
    Brushed tank on my Dominator Naked.
    Polished tank on my Commando SF.
    One black and one titanium painted plastic tank.
    I couldn't imagine painting the aluminum tanks.

    On my Polished Commando tank I "begged" norton to use the gold lettering and stripe so it matched the gold on the air box and tail.
