It is wth some regret that I am ceasnig my association with my Commando. I went for a ride a couple of days ago to catch up with a friend for coffee. I wobbled my way there and wobbled my way back. Entering my carport, I fell off at low speed and couldn't get up. It required my son and a neighbour to get me up and around and get me seated and into a chair. My balance mechanism appears to be not at it's best. So, I've decided that the time has come. Minor damage to the bike, basically a bent footpeg which will be replaced. I do not have the capacity to either maintain or wash/polish it anymore either. my riding days are done. I recently found out that my grandfather on my mother's side died when he was hit by a car while on his bike at 65 years of age. I turned 65 a while back and have no desire to tempt fate. I intend to get a few jobs on the bike done and polished to within an inch of it's life and then put it in the classifieds. Such is life. I'll still be hanging around keeping an eye on things Norton so I'll see you guys around Good Luck !
