Don't look me up. I'm back home in Riverside, CA nice and warm. Most of the time I was there my only transport was the Norton. Not always with the Manx. It had a 500T Norton, a 650 Triumph, a 350 Norton over the years. But a lot of the time it was so cold it wasn't serious shrinkage but more like serious retraction. Sometimes it was so cold my balls would retract to the point I looked like I had three adams apples. If you do get over there you'll have a great time.
Great story! Sticky this thread, please.
Cold ? I attended the very first Dragon Rally at the foot of Snowdon in February [1964?]
