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’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.

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

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.

Starting to sound like the "war of the roses" film.

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.
