It is been 8 years since I host the 2014 British V8 meeting in Colorado Springs.

I haven't done anything with the MGB since I screwed up my back and knees, BUT I have been looking back back into the groove. Don't how long it will be completed. I'm the turtle,. not the hare

Welcome back, Larry! I often think about that meet, and always very favorably. I'm looking forward to hearing about your project's progress.

Yes, Colorado Springs was one of the best.

Larry, your avatar with the yellow Norton. I recently refurbished my Norton, changing from black to yellow.

I owned a silver Norton Atlas, rode it from Valleho, CA to Grand Forks, ND then Tulsa, OK and on up to Milton W.Va. over a period of one month back in '76. Good bike. I fitted it with dual carbs and rode it regularly. Probably should have kept it but you know how that goes.

I know how that goes Jim. I had a '74 850 Interstate back in the day. Still regret selling it.
