    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..... :rofl
    I could not afford a Commando then as even a do up was 1200 quid....ended up with a 1959 T110 project.....:huh

    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 :lol3

    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
