Trip to Orford

At the quay in Orford looking across to Orford Ness.

Commandos in Honfleur

Howard and John had to escape the heatwave of central France by going firstly to northern Brittany instead.  Here parked on the quay in the very picturesque port of Honfleur and later opposite the chateau at Chinon on the Loire.

Royston & District MCC Bike Show, June 2019

A fine line up of bikes on a somewhat damp evening. Awards were given to John’s NFC and the Vincent.

Royston & District MCC Bike Show, June 2018

Andrew and Ann showed their RAF spec 16H along with Kristophe the manikin in full regalia: this exhibit got a lot of attention, especially with it being the RAF centenary. John Wilkinson rode his very shiny Commando, which he has owned for the past 39 years. Mike Wright bought his ‘even shinier than it was last year’ 88 Dominator! Adrian displayed his mostly aluminium Commando special and the still warm ‘flying tea-tray’ aka the EEK! Racing Norton sidecar, freshly returned from racing at the ZZ Races in the very north of Holland last Saturday.

Stan won the Norton Owners’ Club ‘Best Classic Award’ on his immaculately restored Vincent Rapide.  A perfect evening in flaming June!

Colin’s Lands End to John O’Groats Freddy Farmer Carity ride, May 2018

Colin road to Lands End and then all the way up to John O’Groats on his 500 Dommie, raising money for Freddy Farmer’s, children’s charity.   Bike slightly heavy at the back, slightly light at the front but splendid scenery and fabulous weather.



Solo from Santander to Cambridge, May 2017

Stopped for a rest after crossing the Col de la Pierre Saint-Martin, one of the most fun stretches of road ever and a must for every Norton rider. Pyrenees in the background.
