Hello Now with this covid -19 and tougher measures in place there will be no more branch meetings now for six months all shows and rides out cancelled you and your Norton are now in lockdown so the best thing is to drain the oil and fuel tanks and put a dust cover over your bikes or do your maintenance or rebuilds now, some my just polish their bikes but that it for now until this is all over with but do keep up with drinking vitium C lots of it, that will help to keep you all in good shape and eat well with lots of greens and veg and fruits is a bummer but we will get through this so stay safe yours anna j
Just 10 days ago I filled my bike with Super. Must drain it and put it in the car I think. The top grade stuff leaves brown residues, unlike the ordinary stuff. I'm sure it will block the carb.
You can do like I do - use the bike to go and do the essential journeys, like shopping! You can't carry as much on a bike as in the car, so that means more rides on empty roads.
And what better way to self isolate than on a bike!
My plan too, George.
It would be a shame to give this up ....
Some countries are providing certificates to those who test positive with antibody testing - which means they've had COVID-19 and are now immune. In Germany for example, this allows them to carry on without lockdowns. I can't see that HMG will be able to hold out against doing something similar before too long. We don't know, but I'd like to think that 6 months could be a bit pessimistic?
Hello its now all quiet on the western front the fussiwies have thier heads down and I am enjoying the peace and quiet so all stay safe until is over and hope there some sunshine left to get a few rides out before winter buy then we should see many gleeing Norton's in the sun. Yours Anna J
Sidecars are great. Doing grocery deliveries for local families. Essential work!
Main shop every 2 weeks in the car & trip to farm shop on 2 wheels every other week, tho' easier on the Guzzi cos it has cavernous panniers; vehicles need to be used!
