Isle of Man TT: Norton qualifies for Senior

Norton has been officially notified it has qualified the Norton SG1 to race in the Senior TT - the most prestigious of the Isle of Man TT races after completing enough laps.

Norton well done

I can't get over the comments about how it's not really norton! It's built by Brits, passionate about what they are doing, trying to make the brand successful as it once was-also trying to keep to its traditional routes. I wasnt old enough to enjoy the old company, doesn't mean I don't appreciate what the guys are trying to do, I ride a triumph-been a life long dream, used to drive a mini and love tvr! Nothing wrong with pride in the countries products, yep tvr are Russian owned and triumph have changed immensely since they went bust and look a them now!

Sounds like

you really want to get that bike of yours going Benny. Tell you what you get an RSV4 engine bang it in a spondon frame ,add polished tank , throw a couple stripes at it and call it a HEDGEHOG. I will look for your entry in the TT next year . I will be there to support you , but if for any reason you are not there ,  I guess you will have to tip your  hat and have a bit of respect for the guys that have and are doing it.  NUFF SAID.

Not that tired old argument again? "If you can't do better, blah, blah, blah." So you're saying that nobody is allowed to criticise anything unless they are willing to give it a try themselves? You're telling us you've never criticised anything in your life? Of course you have.

This company calling itself Norton claims to be a motorcycle manufacturer, Benny does not.

Doesn't seem to care too much Benny about what is what, so you could probably slap a RSV in a Spondon frame and call it a semi-worked Manx Norton Porcupine (not sure whatever industrialist / company that owns the AJS naming rights would think of that though). However I believe the more historic names you add to a bike the slower it becomes with the heavy baggage of history to carry.
