    I know we have banged heads before monsignor Chopper - but I must admit this is an excellent addition to the Adventure World :freaky

    all for sale!
    actually there are lots of airhead GSes (incl. basic and kalahari) and other types of airhead bm s here. If you want I can post some more photos and the contact details of the shop. The owner of the shop sells most of these bikes back to Germany and as you guess he's a rich man by now.

    Beautiful bike you got there! I really like what that guy Kenny Dreer is doing at Norton America. If I had the bucks I would have one.

    Thanks Bruce. The Norvil is great fun, but the ergos are a bit stiff for my aging back; this was near the end of a 500mi weekend, and the spasms were intense.

    I like the NA 951 as well, though it's a source of great controversy among the traditionalists.

    Thanks GT! I keep the fairing in my garage most days, cause with it installed, I get about 8-10 degrees lock-to-lock, a major pain for anything but high speeds and wide open spaces.

    I had an RD when I lived in Canada too. Sold it when I moved to the States because my friends told me it wasn't worth taking....

    nice friends :cry

    Love the Norvil, but my other Norton appeals more to the traditionalists:

    Regretfully, I'll probably be putting Black Beauty up for sale sometime soon, but life must go on.

    You know it still makes the hair on my neck stand up when your in 3rd & you pop it back to 2nd & open her up to 7000. I once went on a trip with a mate, he was on an 11 kwaka & was an exceptionally fast rider. We rode through the Gibralta ranges for about an 60 miles never getting below 100 mph & often touched 130 mph... I followed him & lost sight of him very quickly & i ran out of fuel about 5 miles out of the next town...she is thirsty at that clip. We used his battery overflow tube to syphon his fuel into a drink can on the roadside.

    But i still remember holding that throttle open for ages thinking i was on a missile.
