    Is Norton applying them the same way to the New bikes ? And if so could they be ordered from Norton ready to apply ? Thanks for your advice.

    Not guilty Clive.

    Not this time anyhow...!

    The Anniversary bikes came with the Roadholder badges as standard.

    Ok, interesting.

    Norton must have one of those new, fancy, high tech, CNC, random badge application machines at the end off the assembly line...

    Or their Kanban methodology based Just In Time production system stopped for a nice cup of tea...

    It would be nice to think that Norton had such ‘lean manufacturing’ methods in use Clive, but I rather suspect not. Unfortunately.

    Everything is possible - I was at the Morgan factory last Friday night and I saw Kanban cards in the production area!!!!!!!

    Thanks,
    As Clive says -rim polishers finger! (Don’t google)
    As SWMBO says - “you are not cleaning that bloody thing again are you?”. One last clean and polish before hibernation - salt down, wheels up!
