Mick Duckworth also takes it for a spin in the latest (June) edition of Classic Bike (100 TT Years edition).

(It's not quite a 'Norton Commando' though)

No, not quite. It's a good reminder of Norton's 1st twin though. I'd forgotten that early twins were V's.

Millard,

Sorry, I was just being a little mischievous, as this section is for the Norton Commando but it is interesting anyway !

Thanks Millard.

I read that piece in the Telegraph. I can't imagine having 70 mph capability with no clutch and only bicycle-type brakes.

I'm amazed that guys with balls that big could even sit on the seat.
