Greetings, Long time British bike and car user. Currently have 73 Norton Commando which was my first new bike, a Triumph 72 Tiger 650, Triumph R3 in fast red, Sunbeam Tiger and MGA..Working on Tr3A. I know, it's a disease with no cure. Rocket is the most enjoyable machine I have driven, ridden or flown... Gary:bch:

Welcome aboard.

Lots of good gossip here. Information too.
I hail from Ohio myself and used to spen a lot of time in Southern Ohio riding my Meriden Triumph. Lots of good hilly, curvy roads there and good mom and pop diners too.

Have fun and cruise the forum.

Welcome arado!!

I've had two Commandos... one was a 73 MkIIA. The other was a 72 that kicked back and tried to break my leg :eek:. At my advanced age I now opt for the starter button...

Please join in!!

Ah Yes

Welcome to the site. You brought back some good memories of a little '58 TR3 I drove in high school. Looking back........ how in the *%& did I ever fit inside the "Bloody" thing? Great fun to drive and always got stares and positive comments. Kind of like driving a large Go-Cart!

Looks like Ohio is #1 in football and basketball today. I don't understand how my school, Kansas, beat Florida's basketball team ,the number 1 team in the nation on Saturday, and they're still 4th and we're 5th?
