    His Norton used to be serviced by my friend and racer Chris Scott who used to own Super Twins in LA (now closed). I believe it has (had?) a head ported by Axtell and an Axtell cam. One day my old racing buddy Mic Ofield saw a Norton languishing at the LA airport for weeks and he told Chris Scott about it - so Chris picked it up. I was Keanu's Norton that he lost simply because the parking lot was so big and he forgot where he parked it. Chris contacted Keanu and gave a bunch of ribbing and sh*t about it (all in good fun).

    I guess that explains why he doesn't know what a Featherbed is.

    Did you catch his mistake? He says the Norton (pointing to his Commando) has a Featherbed frame, so called because the engine is rubber mounted. Nonetheless, he loves motorcycles and is a great ambassador for our sport and the marque we love so much.

    I detect some bad editing going on there, he seems to be talking first about the Commando and then Norton and the jump between Featherbed and Rubber mounted is forced saying to me part of a sentence has been missed.

    Looks more like a Mk2 than a Mk2A even if some parts have been changed.

    A Commando rider since 1987 on the same bike is better than I am doing, he always seems to come across as a normal dude with a job he digs.
    I am sure he got 10000 numpty emails regarding 'Featherbed with can I be your friend . :D
