I was sort of kidding and sort of not. I know you've got a ton of experience so not really applicable to you but when older guys get motorcycles I wonder how many accidents happen because their minds just aren't trained for the split second reaction. I could be rationalizing but I ride a scooter almost everyday day and I think it helps keep those cat senses active. Even though I had Husky dirt bikes that were 1 down and 3 up on the left side I wonder what my reactions would be like. I can't remember which level I parked my car at the airport sometimes but my bike sense still feel very sharp. I'm crazy about the Norton by the way. I don't know that I'd want to ride it but I'd like to own it and look at it.
