    Blimey, quite a few. Definitely not the first one for me, my bike wont be run in by then so will take too long to get there. Definitely up for at least two and probably stop overs. As I am a FWR, it will all come down to the two day weather forecast which ones I go to. Whats the score then, do you have to buy a ticket for the grub, is there a bar. Any band? Definitely up for a Dominator test ride (sounds a bit inappropriate).

    Perhaps it was damp that day and everyone used their second rides.

    I need convincing chaps that these Norton bike nights come with 'added value' - in Lincolnshire there is pretty much a decent bike night every night of the week in the Summer and you get to see pretty much every jap 'special' there is to see!

    There is a simple bbq and soft drinks/hot drinks available - just standard sterling works for us. Look forward to seeing some of you there

    Rob,
    Are there any plans to 'Tag' one of the BBQs as a Commando 50th Anniversary celeb?

    A pleasant evening at the factory - a big turnout of local bikes and 4 Nortons attracting a fair bit of interest: 3 Commandos; mine, Ian on a late low mileage 2017, his father Arthur on an earlier 961 plus Paul on his Domi. A couple of owners-in-waiting and a merrily flaming barbecue threatening to roast more than the burgers. Three factory bikes including a V4 and I really absolutely definitely don't want one of those gorgeous machines....

    Please don’t post pictures of the V4.

    I’m trying very hard not to look at them...

    If you look at them a lot and maybe a test ride you’ll get bored of them and stop wanting one......

    That does actually work sometimes.

    It’s a rather high risk strategy though...

    We must be close to nominating a date now? We have to top 13, tough but do-able :)

    7th June, anyone interested? I have to get the bike back to Donington (nothing serious/urgent) so might as well kill two birds.... as they say.
