Without any doubt, the Norton was the best looking and coolest bike I ever owned!
The sound from the stock exhausts was muted but still exhilarating. This was the ultimate Z1 killer ( when it came to braking and handling) and was only beaten in the top end. You could ride this around town, on any highway for long jaunts. And, if you really needed to, it could do some pretty aggressive off-road riding too.
