At last I have broken into the mileage of 10003 miles can somebody please update me on the list please. Had a couple of lean years due to world events. Another question I enquired to Norton about a new 961 only to get a message that somebody would be in touch, er still waiting Norton. They should be on the front foot and talking to potential customers.

Building up the miles again after a year on holiday. Now fighting for my attention with its new Italian sister....

Gary, a non-forum member I’ve spoken about before, has just bypassed my place on his way back to N Qld. Don’t know how long this trip was but he is up to 76k km. He tells me the alternator/stator failed on this trip although he can fix it.

He plans to get to 100k and strip it down for a good look. He’s hinted that he may join the forum when he has reached that milestone.

From the 961 FB page. Yuichi is really knocking the miles over! It would be interesting to know how he’s gone from a maintenance perspective.

I finally have 6000 miles on my 961

So I asked Yuichi. As we could have guessed he’s had mechanical/electrical ‘gremlins throughout by the sounds of it. Like many on the site he’s persisted and kept it running. I guess you really do need to be an enthusiast and not just an owner.

If Norton Birmingham can improve the smoothness of the engine , this will help all aspects of reliability .

5100 miles for me on my SE, 4000 since I got her last September. There is a chap on Facebook Yuchi Yamamoto in Japan who has clocked up a whopping 45555 miles (posted a picture of his speedo), had a few issues though I believe!
