    So the 961 was returned this afternoon, came home from work to meet the driver, rode it back to work. Yes got that big smile back, nothing like the Norton to cheer you up.
    Obviously more to this, I’ll post something when I have more time. It’s been nearly three weeks, however I’d rather have the wait than the run of minor problems.
    However, on the funny side, I really couldn’t get angry and to be clear not a slight on Norton or the Factory but it was supposed to be delivered yesterday. Driver arrived, I hadn’t had my 30 minutes out call, knocked the door and asked SWMBO where was the bike? My Wife’s laughs and said “yes good one” you’re delivering it......
    Driver adamant he was collecting, yes he’d left the factory and my 961 was still there..............
    You do have to laugh and you can’t make it up. The factory were apologetic, like I said I couldn’t get angry. I don’t think the guy will live it down for a while.

    It never happens that they call to drop off a bike you weren't expecting does it?

    No Clive it doesn’t, on the bright side, second driver called 30 minutes out so I had time to get home. In hindsight it was probably best the first driver didn’t, as I find it funny now, had I been home maybe not.

    For what it is worth. I had briefly considered buying a new Norton but with the lack of support for the brand here in the US I just couldn't do it. There is one dealer half way across Texas from me and the next is on the left coast. In my opinion, Norton needs to work on that to increase their sales.
