Two important moments in my life; the first photo depicts me (in the middle), my brother, my father and one of his motorbikes. Unfortunately it's not a Norton. My father was not very keen on motorcycles and exchanged his NSU (Norton Spares Used!) for a car as soon as he could afford it. I do look quite happy, sitting on a bike for what may very well be the first time.
The second pic is another first; my first speeding ticket on a Norton. This was on my trusty 1935 ES2, at one of the camping trips that I made on that bike. 66 km/h is not impressive but I improved on that figure doing 80 km/h on my 1929 M18 when caught by another speed camera.
