Kinda like mine. Skip directly to 6:27
He's not the only American to say that about the frame, so I wondered if maybe they were marketed as the Featherbed in the U.S. ?
I think it was the iso's making the ride without the vibrations so different and the connection 1/2 made to the featherbed it being a different frame got missed. After riding normal bikes in the 80's my first Commando ride was so different it was like nothing else, the wind noise became most obvious whereas before engine vibrations had been.so I wondered if maybe they were marketed as the Featherbed in the U.S. ?
I did at first, then gave him a pass. Apparently his Norton knowledge starts and stops with Commandos.
I give him points for knowing that Norton and featherbed frame go together. I also commend him for extending interest in the brand as thousands of viewers keyed "NORTON" into Google just to see what he was talking about.
Just have to agree to disagreeI did at first, then gave him a pass. Apparently his Norton knowledge starts and stops with Commandos.
Besides, how can you possibly dislike someone who says on National TV his favortite smell is his Norton Commando warming up!!!!
Agreed. He even makes fun of himself for crashing his Norton.Imagine you were in an undiscovered until that moment 100000 square mile desert and you took a poop behind the only tree right in the centre and within hours there was a pic of it on the internet and an internet forum set up to discuss it.
You couldn't pay me enough money twice to live that dudes public life.
How he seems to stay humble, charitable and grounded for decades is beyond me when many others have departed or star has faded.
It said he has had that Commando since the 1980's.
I saw the first Matrix video, none since.
I tend to agree. But then I remember just how much shit this guy has going on in his life.Just have to agree to disagree
I can't see how anyone can own a Norton commando for that length of time and not know what frame it had
