    Good One ! , Does it seem like to you that things have slowed down to a crawl at Norton at the moment ??

    Yeah,

    I think it's a good barometer for measuring when issues might likely develop.

    I’d say that’s an understatement...

    Especially on the 650 front, 6 months after bikes were supposed to be in the shops and there’s still no factory, no supply chain, no finance in place, and of course... no bikes...

    Heads would roll in normal companies !!

    Doesn't the factory have to get regulatory approval for bikes before they have a spec that they can produce and sell to the public?
    I haven't seen anything about the 650 design having received approval, EU or US DOT.

    Just guessing , But maybe it is so much money this time that Stuart can't or won't have enough (money) to make it happen on his own ??

    I'm in the mid 11s. Not going list till I turn 12k. That said, with all its quirks, it's running ok. Another 72 miles today. Made it home when I started feeling drops.

    Had a miraculous 67 degrees F here on Long Island, NY. Got out for a nice blast. Didn't run flawlessly, but ran well. A few weeks ago, low 40's, she ran flawlessly start to finish. Seems to do much better in the cold air. A brief bout with low idle, one stall first mile and a brief bout with 1800 rpm. Not worth complaining about.
    Glad to get to freshen up the tank. She still draws a crowd.
    11,875 miles.

    Care to elaborate with a comparison? I'm still baffled as to why you needed it, however, I can understand your reasons for not telling.
