    Someone sent me this link. It's obviously not a HD-related but is bike related. What a nice thing for 2 sons to do for the old man...

    That was a nice gift. I remember when my older brother had the exact same bike.

    Norton's in their time were one of the fastest bikes on the road. Very cool!

    My brother used to have an 850 Commando. At the time we thought it was a rocket.

    One of the fastest bikes I ever road was a 850 Camando, if I remember the breaks weren't all that great, but it had lots of "go".
