    What would be on your 961 wish list from the fat man,
    Cheap or expensive?

    An exhaust system that looks and sounds like the original.

    A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all - roll on Spring!

    lately I been thinking of making some small changes to my Domi Naked by adding a tank strap, removing the air box and replacing it with velocity stacks, replacing the dual clocks to a tach only from the Domiracer, adding a few vintage style water transfer decals and add a steering damper knob.

    I always preferred the look of a drum brake over disk. I wish a drum version was available that looked like a vented drum on the outside but a disk on the inside.
    They do this very thing for vintage cars but I’ve yet to see one on a bike.

    What do you think? To corny?

    Way too corny Scott! And not new either, Honda tried it (badly) in the 80s...

    The REAL answer to the question, is, obviously, A SUPER CHARGER OPTION....(and one that does NOT turn it into a £50k white elephant...)

    Well seems like I’m easily satisfied or could be , but alas not , XL size is out of stock ,but as it Xmas maybe I should be ordering a XXL ! , anyway thought it was reasonable & all for a Bullseye(£50) 7654F133-3FBA-4607-8C7F-201ABF2507B7.jpeg D72A885C-CD88-401F-A24F-A1636563996C.jpeg

    How does the sound of the Thiel mufflers sound compared to a catless x pipe with short Motads?

    Nothing special.

    1. FCR conversion kit for the 961
    2. Set of classic Morris Mag wheels in 17"
    3. Oh yeah, if not the FCR conversion, then a supercharger

    Ho ho ho!

    Louder and deeper. And much nicer!

    With the useless looking ‘baffles’ fitted, they are remarkably quiet however.

    Damn weather, not been out in ages. I have even been contemplating a winter ride that i would never clean, a Brixton Motorcycles BX125 or an RE Himalayan. I detest riding in winter but where I work in Rushden Northants, they are about to start on improving (the opposite) a major roundabout which will last 22 months and I cant stretch to an Atlas at the moment (unless I get an Indian one). All the best to you and yours to all Access Nortoners, what a great site

    I only asked Santa for one gift this Christmas...a smooth running 961 in 2020. Is that too much to ask?

    Aha naughty boy, your 961 was very smooth and smooth running, despite you thrashing it around a track

    True.

    Maybe it was ‘because’ rather than ‘despite’ ...?

    A bit late. A dealership that stocks parts under 20mi. from home.

    My wish would a greater tank range and a larger battery but without spoiling the gorgeous looks.
    Also a bit of nice weather,
    Our summer up north stopped at the end of June!
    Remember to use all of your bikes more often..
    We are probably the last generation to have a lifetime on bikes from popping down the shops on your wee two stroke to get a pint of milk to thundering up the Stelvio on an outrageously powerful 1290 V Twin.
    My biggest fear as a child after reading a Dan Dare annual was all vehicles would become electric before I got the chance to ride a proper motorcycle.
    Well that never happened, but things are definitely changing now.
    Have a great New Year and let’s use up some of that petrol.
