Still gets you down the road at a good clip. Shifting at 4500 rpm. Not shown on the Clip, last shift into 4th and it runs about 3800 rpm @ 85 mph on just a bit of throttle.
Sorry about the video quality. One day I'll spring for a proper setup.
Hopefully it shows how easy it is to cover a lot of ground on a lazy, torquey old Vincent.

 
I like your rev counter! Is the engine larger than a thousand? Sounds really throaty.
 
Nice vid Glen.

When do we get part two… “Full throttle, max rpm take off” ??
 
When I splurge on a proper Gopro.
Although in truth this Vincent doesn't really give a whole lot more when you really wring its neck.
The fun of riding it is all that torque with very little fuss and no high rpm.
The 1360 is different, the high rpm (7000 tops) stuff does change its demeanor.
