My only motorcycling experience was at a very early age on the tank of my grandfather's Aerial, then later, when as a student, I'd hide in a bus queue to try and avoid becoming a pillion passenger on a friends Honda 50. Every time he went up a gear, I felt I was going to drop off the back!
I've always enjoyed watching MotoGP and World and British Superbikes. Far better racing than you'll ever see on 4 wheels. Road racing, especially The Isle of Man TT, makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. Brave or mad?
If you're into the older models, Henry Cole & Sam Lovegrove's programmes make excellent viewing.
I suspect Norton will make a comeback in some form. [MCN article ]1
