    Yeah Man we need to see and hear more of that sort of antics with our Commandos. i just want another Norton that can do that w/o any front brake needed, then apply brake some to ride the burn out like any decent stunter does, straight steering of course, which is similar state to what I call Phase 5 handling. So far my recent cycles have only had power to do that on THE G...

    Eventually Ms Peel gets a pair of paintball blunderbusses to video animals splatted then scattering before I get there. There is a big difference between Ms Peel capability and my plain Jane Combat as I found out the hard way. I'd do the spring branch run regularly to work up reflexes and some fun before a ride off, not ever again on Trixie and street tires... had to be pulled out with wife and pu.
    Believe it on not nothing got any marks but the front axle nut and the peg rubbers, whew. I was not at all expecting any big deal as had my appointment book on back to leave fairly soon after getting out in time, but made in ok on time.

    Thanks Matt - watching that, I felt the urge again. The first race meeting I attended was in 1954 when Geoff Duke with Gilera raced at Fisherman's bend, a suburb of Melbourne. I was 14 years old. We rarely ever had the crowd standing next to the circuit with no safety fence, however the notorious place for it was at Ballarat Park. A friend fell off there and slid through the crowd. When he sat up he didn't know where he was - the crowd had just parted and let him through, and he found himself looking at their backs. Another mate fell off there and hit a cannon and was knocked unconscious. These days we would never get insurance for an event like Catalina, and we cannot run without it, the risk is too great.

    Good one Alan and too close to how it was for me during the P!! era I almost got recruited into. Thought that was going to be more the type of crowd I'd run into on on these forums but obviously didn't. People can easy die at some the biker parties that don't get advertised and are guared so only cast iron barrel bikes allowed. The movies don't go into the big animals shows with the girls.
