Ever thought your Norton Commando had a mind of it's own?

It may well have...

I'd forgotten all about this cinematic masterpiece

maybe it is a good thing that I sold that fastback way back. I still miss it, but not quit as much now

I've not know one to be that bad, but I have experienced them breaking parts when they were just sitting on their center stands.

I went to the pictures in Streatham London on my OE and paid to see that movie....from memory it had Bob the Builder in it.....
I could not afford a Commando then as even a do up was 1200 quid....ended up with a 1959 T110 project.....

Neil Morrisey - Top bloke apparently. Rode a Commando in the Boon TV series in the 80's and a Triumph daytona in the vanishing man and of course is better known for being Bob the Builders voice

Not necessarily a bad movie, but found "One Week" on Nexflix over the weekend. Story about a Canadian riding west on a Norton Commando 850. Great bike scenes.

'One week' is actually a decent short film. Definitely worth watching
