    Note below the bike, a big spot of oil... A couple guys were gathered around my bike peering at it, and under it. I let em go, until someone finally said..."Hey you better take a look at your bike, man." I saw the oil on the ground, and looked at the frame- bone dry, no drips of oil. I was like "Nice try." :lol3

    I've seen that game already. Later I found that one guy on the ride had a vial of oil he carries to mess with people! :evil A couple years back, they fucked with a dude who brought his Buell, all day long. They had a field day- not sure if Mr Buell ever did figure where that oil was coming from! :D

    Looking about on the interweb today for decent quality stainless steel exhaust parts for Norton Commando...
    Not turning up much.

    Anyone know of a good supplier stateside of Exhaust for Norton Commando? UK supplier OK too if they ship outside UK.

    Have you tried Keihan in the UK? They ship to the States.

    Google "Keihan exhaust."

    Kev, man that's an interesting combination there- rear sets and high rise bars.
    Seriously? WTF.
    Other than that, I like it.
