Gary is a 961 rider from NQ that I have spoken to a bit; he is not on this site. Gary is touring quite often with his Cafe Racer (yes I said touring on a CR!). Think he’s in his 60’s. We’ve tried to hook up twice as he’s been passing the Sunny Coast but events have intervened. I believe that he has north of 30k miles on his bike. He had significant initial faults and has worked on it extensively himself, through necessity.

Don’t really know why he’s not interested in the site. May have been on it before and ‘butted heads‘ at some stage (guessing). I’ll try and persuade him to join - think he’s done some pretty extensive/innovative work to get a reliable bike.

54 degrees F in NY. Time to rack up a few more miles!!! For this reason, I never winterize. ;)
Hi Britfan , 54 F isn't too bad . What's the lowest you can ride in ? The last time I went out was 47 F and by the time I got back 39 F TOO COLD for me ! Being honest , anything much less than 50 F is getting too cold for me . When you factor in the wind chill , you really need to be wired for heat . I have heated gloves , that's it.

Hi Tony. If its bright sunshine, low wind and humidity, I'll do mid 30S. Lately though, that's been getting to the old joints. Also, I prefer but not positively the back road ride on the Bonnie. Cloudy, windy, a little humid....low 40s Got about 13.6k on the Norton

Spoke to Gary an Australian 961 CR owner the other day - hails from Tully in North Queensland. He has just short of 65000 km on his bike now and still going strong. Only recent problems were a dislodged head temp sensor (easy fix) and a failed gear change link.

Really good to see this sort of mileage. He matter of factly mentioned stripping it down at 100k to ‘see how she’s looking’!:).

I gotta get some more riding in!

Steve, any luck? It sounds like Gary would be a very valuable source of knowledge for 961 owners.

Cheers,

cliffa.

I hear you guys and I have tried a couple of times. He’s an older guy (aren’t we all) and is very resistant to rejoining. Not sure what happened in the past. It’s a shame as he had little (read no) support when he purchased and resolved all of the usual oil in air, tick over problems himself. Sounds like he re-engineered things significantly. Now reckons it’s completely dialed in - hence touring on his CR and the 65K I suppose.

I’ll keep trying but he sounds (very) set in his ways.

Gary was passing by the Sunshine Coast (again) today on his way back to Tulley (1500km), on his 2015 CR. He called in at my place with a couple of riding mates for a coffee. He’s a short lad, which I would have guessed, as there‘s no way a taller guy could tour on a CR.

He has 70K on it now and it’s the first time I’ve seen the machine. He has engineered too many changes to list but a few highlights below; don’t ask me any technical detail as it was a quick chat/look only.

- Tank is raised up slightly to remove any contact with the battery, re-engineered mounts.
- Significant change to the oil flow - can’t really explain as it looks so different. No need for an overflow bottle.
- Starts and ticks over beautifully - he adjusts tickover ‘on the fly‘ by altering air flow (obviously), via a valve on the RHS. Adjusted it down to 1200 rpm and lower in front of me. Sounded different in some way, slow and stable is my best description.

Quick chat before he blasted off up the hill like a true Norton hooligan - top bloke. Does’nt do social media, not really interested in any form of peer recognition for his engineering. Has three 961’s which he likes to fettle and ride, a lot. No real way of coaxing him to the site. Didn’t stop me trying.
