    "All new Norton coming soon"
    Interesting phraseology - "All new".
    A new iteration of 961, or V4, or a completely different new machine?
    Damn, now with Christmas coming I won't be able to sleep.

    Thanks Stuart!;)

    Having lived in Brum for most of my youth I have a Brummie accent, I agree it is a terrible accent when I hear it which thankfully is not often now. It was always a laugh listening to the parents, who had moved to posh Solihull so their kids would not get a brummie accent, complaining bitterly when this did not work and their kids still talked Brummie.

    Yup - even after 58 years Solihull didn't knock the proud Brummie out of me. There was a time when nobody wanted a regional accent but fortunately those days are disappearing behind us. Accent aside we have a fantastic manufacturing heritage - go round the National Motorcycle Museum and look at all the bike manufacturing companies which were active in Birmingham/Coventry.

    All in good fun. Do the Brummies look down upon the Cockneys? Trust me...I'm from Brooklyn., Yo.
    Ok. Back to business. Can't wait to see this bike. Half an Aprilia. It looks like a decent 2 upper. Having a second glance, will I be dining on BBQ Right Foot of Wife? Or will traffic behind me savor the wafting aroma as it cooks??

    Just another day for some and another week for others to see the new machine. Had a look at the latest teaser video and paused it to try and catch a better view. I could see some upside down black ohlins forks, looked like maybe an led headlight and a nice swept up exhaust.

    Nec next week from the 17th and lots more picks. Wonder how long it will take for deliveries, wonder if they can cope with volume suddenly hitting them. Many might say a nice problem to have but adds a lot of pressure.
