Paul,

Either I'm not writing well or you're not reading :)

You were interested mainly in how much people ride. That is not the only reason to have a Norton - you pointed out some, I mentioned more.
Not as much how MUCH they ride, but what they generally USE their Commando for. but, I see your point. It would need to be a 2-question poll to work best. Kind of a mess, really.

OK, neither writing or reading well :) No biggie.

It is an interesting subject. I know 40-somthings that love being seen on their vintage bike and ride a lot but to absolutely no maintenance on them. I know one guy quite a bit older than me that has lots of Nortons, rides them all and likes to show them - he built most of them but no longer wants to work on them - just ride. I know a couple of 50-somethings that like to ride but are trying to work on their Nortons as a hobby having never owned or worked on a bike before.

3/4 Commando 1/4 Wideline Featherbed, was a everyday rider from new and in the Featherbed frame since 1982 till 8 years a go when I bought my new Triumph Thruxton in 2013 so now my Norton is semi retired just like its owner but still ride it regularly, my everyday rider is now my 2016 Thruxton 1200S, but the Norton will always be with me.

November - April tune up, stop oil leaks! Ride every day May-October! Consider myself a "C" when it comes to my Norton's

Hmmmmm... seems we no longer have the "insert poll" feature? (or is it just me?) tag @L.A.B.

What type of riding do you MAINLY do with your commando? Answer all appropriate choices (A+F, etc.)

A. Regular street use
B. Regular highway use
C. Occasional use
D. Very little use except bike shows
E. No use, it's an investment
F. Road Racing
G. Drag LSR Racing
H. Off-road riding/racing
I. Touring (w/ gear aboard/attached)
Can you see the pool option under the drop down menu? It should be there for VIP?

Jerry,

I've looked at every drop down I can find - no poll.
To see the poll creation option you have to start a new thread. Then if you look at the editor to the top right there is a “poll” tab. You can configure it there. Let me know if you see it, cheers

Well,
in the twenty years I’ve had my 850 it has effectively never seen a city street or a traffic light.
I can’t say B because it’s not regular use but every mile is fast country back roads through hilly to mountainous country.
So, I’m not sure what camp I belong in.

I refuse to have roles imposed on me, and I'm quite offended.
Off for a bikini wax now.

Seriously, since the Great Plague I'm 100% in the 'I trip over it in the garage' category.
