    Can't claim too much for it as it had a complete ground-up restoration 20 years back. It's done about 10,000 miles since but was kept in pretty good nick. The engine has just been totally rebuilt and the rest needed a general going over, carb work and various bits replaced plus a fair bit of good old cut and polish, but it has come up nicely. Still trying to replace a couple of small perished rubber bits to finish it off. Runs nicely though and I bought it as a daily rider rather than a Sunday bike.

    Rob,
    Can't blame ya for being a bit peeved here dude. Seems as if folks are going to fly a flag in tribute, or for any other reason, they'd get it right! You're perfectly right in calling these bozos out.

    It was a complete gas. The Norwegian BSAOC went all out, and hosted a wonderful rally.
    I actually was kind of all over the place, from Hamburg Germany to Valldall Norway with stops along the way in Sweden. Read all about it if you like, as I post my story of the entire trip on BritBike.com, or wait for a BSA- only RR on ADVrider, in the RR section, later on.

    AND: if you are on Instagram search ricochetrider to view some pix from the trip, and I also have some up on my Tumblr page.

    In defence of those who inadvertently fly the Union flag upside down I sometimes have a hard time deciding which way is top or bottom myself and I'm a Brit.I know its broad white on top closest to the staff but I can see how an honest mistake can be made.

    Flying any flag inverted is an international sign of distress so maybe.......:wink:
