Featured Newbeee Reporting For Dukey Sir!

Discussion in 'Newbies Hangout' started by Peter Byworth, Feb 9, 2021.

  1. Hi folks, just signed up and ready for dukey.
    56 yrs young been riding since I was 16 (legally anyway lols).
    Owned many bikes over the years... always wanted a Duke... never thought I would own one.
    I do now.
    I've a few weeks yet to finish creating the bike of my vision.
    My lesson has been patience, letting go of expectation, and feeling grateful.
    Looking forward to the Spring...
    A safe journey to you all.

  9. I remember seeing these 'old guys' with 888's, and before that with Jota's etc and think, 'wish I had a bike like that, but at least I'm young'!!! Ah, the fullness of time...

  11. Welcome to the forum
     
  12. You youngsters, all the same. Typical products of the 60's. Now when I was a lad it was real men on real bikes with drum brakes, cross ply tyres and points ignition. Nothing with more than 60bhp at the wheel. Norton commandos were super bikes. Jap bikes would never catch on Ducati' were bevel drive and Allen keys were what Allen opened his front door with.
    Welcome to the psychiatric waiting room.:)

  14. Love it! Us juveniles Sunna know we’re born! My old man worked for Rocyes all his life. He bought a new dominator once but was so broke he couldn’t afford fuel for two weeks until his next pay...so he completely took it apart-every piece-then put it back together so he could be ‘on his bike’!!

  17. Had a DBD 34. Full trim. Police took it back to the owner. That's a BSA 500 single for any youngsters reading, also made a DBD 32 350. Available in trials and clubman trim. Mega bucks now. Norton Dominator good money now, feather bed frame. Memories. Older I get better I was:)
