Best turnout yet from team Kimber. Seems the G crowd is doing all the shooting. And holding their own against the CZ's, Annies, etc.

All you guys with the fancier Kimbers, do you ever shoot them ? ...Come join us !

Cheers,
Bob

Hey Bob, I just saw that you used Federal 510 in the irons. I thought I was the only one that loved that cheap stuff for short range target shooting.

Quit buying bricks on a regular basis 3-4 years ago from Gander Mountain because I was POd that they raised the price here from 1.99 to 2.29/50.
They got the last laugh I'm afraid.

The Interstate was the last generation of Nortons it was one of the Commando line. They had the rubber mounted engines to kill vibration and I do believe they also had some with larger displacement than 750cc.
Mine was a 1966 Atlas, my first bike. Brand new of the showroom floor $1160. The older fellows said I wouldn't make it to my 21st birthday.

I had two Norton 850 Commando's, I think the old guys said the same about me! I had a 1973 that had been raced pretty hard, and a very pretty 75 that only had about 400 miles on it when I got it in 78. The biggest thing I remember about them was that I never went anywhere on one without working on it! That was what turned me to Japanese bikes. DR

I had a 72 yellow Dunstall that Paul did for me in GB. First cafe racer I ever owned. Picked up the bike at the factory and drove it to London and then back to Italy. Good Lord I was young then and what a drive. Ferry to Europe proper and drove to Paris and south to Monaco, left to Italy along the coast. Had that or 3 years in Italy and raced the Laverda's and Tridents all over town.

Yea, I was pretty young in those days too! I ran the 73 at Laguna Seca, and the old Willow Springs, a couple of times. I didn't even own a trailer, I just rode it there! I had to borrow a helmet that would pass inspection. A couple of friends had Tridents. After I sold the Nortons I bought two Kawasaki 750 triples and drag raced them into the mid 80s. Some time in there I also had a Yamaha RD400 that was track ready. As fast as they seemed back then, My kids bikes today will leave the vintage stuff in the dust! The closer I get to retirement The more I like the Triumph Thruxton, But I don't think I could stand the pressure on my arthritic hands that the riding position would put me in. DR

Tell me about it. Clubman clipons were not fun, but way cool with that little headlight faring and pedal shifters. Rode a Ninja from Florida to California once. Took five days because of some snow stuff in Arizona. Took another five to stand up again. Nice bike. parked at a bank and a big *** truck backed over it.

When I had my Atlas if you had a 12 sec bike you probably were taking it to the strip on a trailer. As it was most likely all stripped down with no lights or mufflers. My Honda 919 does 11 sec and that's with mufflers and turn signals. Amazingly it's not even considered a 'fast' bike by today's standards.
