    Weather and family traumas permitting I will be there. When I went to the Anniversary launch I was looking forward to seeing everyone else's bikes but the parking attendant directed me to an empty space. 'Can't I park with the other bikes?' 'Yours is the only bike here!'.

    Hopefully a better turnout this time or am I the only real ruffty tuffty Brummy biker? ;)

    I could let you know how I like having my **** removed by the wife when I got home if I did buy one!:oops:

    Anyway - if it aint got clip-ons then it just doesn't cut the mustard.

    I’m hopefully going to go along. Not sure if it’ll be by car or bike… the replacement Commando comes on that day so I’ll see what the weather looks like.

    Didn't Norton say that the first 650 planned to go out the door would be the scrambler?
    Can't imagine clip-ons on one of those.

    But clip-ons on a supercharged 650, priceless!

    So sounds like a day off for you. Where is the 961 coming from, are you getting it delivered. I think you said about 600 miles, so has it had its first service, de-cat, short or long pipes etc.

    The bike is coming from a Moto Corsa and has just been fitted with decat & shorties?
    Hopefully I’m getting it on Tuesday however I’m in a meeting which I was hoping was finishing at 14:30 but now looks like it’s going on to 17:00 so I might have to re-organise to later in the week. I’m very excited!

    Are you going to Donnington Hall on Tuesday for the 650 launch? I’m planning to go.

    My wife doesn’t yet know I’m making the change & as it’s also silver (ish) she might not notice!

    If I hide it long enough in the garage, when she asks if it’s a new bike I can honestly say “no”! It’s a tactic i’ve Learnt from her which she frequently uses for shoes, clothes etc.

    Both new bikes will be at the N E C in M C N today called The Nomad £9995 and Ranger £11,995 twins both look great. Spoke to some mates who do lots of off road riding they say they are very well priced.
