To say I'm happy is an understatement I honestly didn't know when I'd be back on the Norton 650ss. I picked up a nasty neck injury that has taken forever to get right.
Tonight for the first time in an absolute age I've managed to get out on the 650SS. I've had to do a few things differently to usual like bump starting Al la Geoff Duke style after a few failed kickstart attempts due to the pain. The sheer joy of putting some miles on a classic British bike again utterly priceless.
I was surprisingly comfortable as always once underway. Hopefully if things go to plan with the rd250lc sale I might be doing the same on a Norton flat tanker. Bit sore now but being able to ride her again is such a relief I'll be putting a video up later in the week from the ride.
For those that don't know I did the restoration on her myself paint engine everything and have ran her for the past 3 years through every winter an shes never missed a beat an she certainly doesn't hang around.
For anyone thats interested my other videos are on under nortonrider on YouTube.
Hi everyone hope we are all well as a few will have seen on some of the pics earlier in the week I had my first spin out on my daily rider Norton 650ss as I'm recovering from a neck injury. 😊 felt so great to get out! I had to do a few things differently bump starting her with a push rather than kick starting as it hurts my neck to much at the moment. So in true British spirit of adapting an overcoming I got out on her.
I'm still so relieved that I managed to put some miles back on her as I was going stir crazy not riding my baby felt like I'd lost a part of myself an felt amazing being back on her.
Anyway I hope you all enjoy the 2 min video as much as I did filming it for you all.
