    And pizza has no calories. Typical self serving misinformation. That said, red may have a very slight edge in handling over a black bike but hands down black is faster. As a former motorcycle industry employee I just know these things.
    BTW my Norton is red with a black frame. A great combination.

    My dad had BMWs, Harleys and Moto-Guzzis as I was growing up. He always said "There's only two colors for motorcycles... One is black, the other is ugly''.
    By the way, I only have two black motorcycles, a BMW K1200S and an AJS Model 18. Both of my Nortons are red (1974 850 Commando and 1967 P-11).

    well.. in 75, among others, there was norton commando & there was also honda goldwing, one was done, the other all new,

    game over for one, as far as new offerings to the public goes & here we are, i guess f monstrosity won,

    guess what new folks may think of old brit bikes & kids don't even bat a eye

    Huge respect is due. They say Red Bull gives you wings, but I suspect it gives you oversize Cahoonas. He certainly has them.

    There are hospitals for people who do things like this. Wonder what his knees will look like in 20 years?
