Are you off again? Are you telling me that the Norton  is value for money? You could buy 2 Bonnies for the price of one Norton and have them next week and if you are going to spend 15 grand or more, you want something that has more than a special name on the tank. And to cheer you up, I think that new Brutale 800 sounds really good.

Fashion victim mobiles

They'll be some Chinese or Indian made junkers sold with a 2000% markup to mugs who fall for the marketing and sales patter. I'm looking at you, "made in America" Victory bikes.

@ Rogerborg

Victory is built in Spirit Lake, Iowa as much as Triumph is built in Hinckley.

"The next part of their business life." That sounds to me as if they've effectively drained all the money from one brand and now they're on to the next group of fashion victims. Kinda makes me wonder how good their after sales / spares / support package will be. Would I buy one? Probably not, because I've already got one (1951 G9) which I love. On a warm day, pootling about the backlanes on it is more relaxing than playing hide the sausage with .........................(insert your own choice of paramour here).

Mind you, apparently sex with a trannie can be quite inspiring, especially when you reach round and think " Blimey,I've gone all the way through".
