    So get here if u can Sunday 31st March

    63174E71-CACB-4510-9654-4BF13E5A87A9.png D minus 7 for this initial 961 gathering,or should I now say Modern Norton gathering just in case there are any V4 guys reading this ,I’ve put a mention bout the meet on the NOC site & I’ll put out another prompt later,but there is a less than enthusiastic response towards modern Norton’s on the site despite regular news pics & latest news from New Norton being on the info pages, there must be still a great number of new 961 owners that don’t realise this club/forum/banter/tattler stuff goes on in the form of “ Access Norton”, so if they just look on the NOC site it can be quite discouraging .
    Any ol how moving swiftly on a more positive note, let’s get it together next week, if u can make it then more the merrier ,we have 6 confirmed

    Ive been keeing away from this thread as I would have loved to attend this one but i’m already committed to Mother’s Day activities. It’s a real shame as it’d have been my first norton meet up and I could have bought my new toy. It’s also just an hour away. There will be another opportunity i’m Sure. Have fun.

    Ok I was looking at going, but because I have been sent the wrong parts the bike is still in bits until I get the new lines and replace the cable

    Are you able to go on another ride?
    If not, catch a lift with Richard - Blightybrit - in his pickup.

    B56AB238-7949-435F-A0F5-34E715160483.jpeg So numbers down to 4 this year, Stuart2015,Lincolnshire poacher,Nortie,a non forum member & moir driving ere. Mother’s Day put a damper on it I guess as it’s a week later than last year, Richard ( Nortie) done the overnight 500 mile round trip from Belgium to attend, so fair play to Richard & his bike boasting 17,000 plus on the clock,all the bikes had quirky differences, note the SE have different handlebar switches , & the SE achieved that mileage with no gearbox vent kit ? Or oil in box full update ? Strange but true, ta ra Nortie & catch yer next time
