I really enjoy the stories in you magazine, especially stories about Nortons. I bought my 1975 Norton Commandon when it came out because I had read an article that said that it was the fastest production motorcycle. When I first bought it, my brother and I rode out on Rainbow Boulevard in Las Vegas and tried to hit 120 miles per hour. I laid on the tank, and according to the speedometer I did hit 120. My brother then rode it and did the same. Above is a photo of me on the bike in 1975 and below is a picture of me on the same bike today.
