We share the same taste, Norton was my favorite, the Interstate and Commando. Many years back and several life changes from that time. That the girls would line up for a ride was just a bonus.

In 1969 I went to work for Collins Radio Company writing technical manuals for the military radios they made. One of the guys that worked rode a 650 BSA. One day he went to ride it home but he didn't kick it to compression and when he did kick it, it kicked back and threw him over the handle bars breaking one leg and one arm.

My Dad was a Velocette and Norton dealer after WWII. I have a picture of my first ride on the tank of Dad's Velo KSS, I wasn't two years old yet. Gene Thiessen was a friend of the family, set a bunch of records for BSA at Daytona Beach and Bonneville Salt Flats.
