I started racing in '75 on a production 750 Fastback.I am also thinking of putting a single together, but sacre bleu Rodney it will probably be a Ducati 250. Planning to have 750, 500 and 250 to campaign. As we all know it's an empirical law of the cosmos that one can't have too many bikes.
I love my Nortons but the truth is the apple of my eye is the old 900SS bevel I have had since 1980 so 250 has to be a Ducati.
Salutary lesson number one was a Manx Norton riding round the outside of me round 'Chris Curve' (or Donington as it then was) at Cadwell. It was rare to see a Manx being ridden back then!
Salutary lesson number two was a Ducati 250 MKIII Desmo production bike riding underneath me at my first venture onto airfield circuits at Gaydon!
