By which time we should know whether it will be a wake for the SG era and all things Norton or a celebration of new ownership.......

Yes spot on Stuart , the 8 weeks of administration will be up , could be insolvency time period, or a self made multimillionaire business man who will buy the company for £1 take on the debt ? Going by the name of ! No he couldn’t could he , would he , ?

Possible Also booked but looking more and more unlikely Will wait and see
at present, I am still planning to go. Can check nearer the time the hotspots in Spain/ Portugal, and my Band B bookings are in small towns, so the actual rally and ferry will be the only group meetings involved, and precautions are fairly straightforward at both.

How dare you say / act like, that Jan...

That’s not the done thing... calmness, logic, practical thinking... you’re SO old fashioned.

Don’t you realise you’re supposed to jump on the mass hysteria bandwagon? Don’t you realise you’ve got to stop EVERYTHING and stop it NOW otherwise you’re gonna cause GZA (global zombie apocalypse)....?

The apparent definition of a “ mass gathering “ is 1000 people or more , so we should be pretty safe for Sunday April 5th , no spreading of viruses that day please , just update ourselves on the Norton latest of mystery/truths/untruths /fake news /facts & testimonies, here’s a few pics I took 4 years ago when I visited the factory & placed an order” halcyon days”

Rich, the mass gathering ban looks like it’s gonna effect gatherings of 500+...

So perhaps the next 961 gathering is in danger ...

If it does then there will be a sudden influx of people insuring and taxing their vehicles and recommissioning them from their lounge, man cave or other place of display. Would be nice though.

As one of the 426, just uncovered and started my 2017 mk2 with 5 k on clock from winter solstice. Surrey too far for me, as from Cheshire.
National Bike museum some time would be good venue in middle of country.
Need second service soon .. factory was great for me,sorting teething problems out and touch wood mine’s never failed to get me home so far!
There would be a lot of post’s to catch up on to service it myself.
Regards

Ruddy hell , is there any good news ?, I’ve contacted former norton dealer” prime factor motorcycles” near Gatwick airport Surrey for a basic service & it’s a No atm until the “ Norton future “ is clarified.
Fast Eddie mentioned “ krazy horse “ in Suffolk are good to go , so will ride bit further I guess for stamp in the book .
My local Bike group EKAM ( east Kent advanced motorcyclists) has cancelled the monthly meet & rideouts as they have a directive from the I.A.M. ( Institute of advanced motorcyclists) so make use of yer bike whilst you can fellas , the Orwell’s “ thought police” are reading these very pages , so looks like I’ll be arrested on Sunday 5th April , unless they they get to “ rykas” sooner & tell them to close , we could even keep our helmets on in the parking area there !

National trust and English Heritage open air sites are to remain open, so bring your own refreshments could work.
