Riding the 1928 TT winning CS1 Norton

From "The Motor Cycle", November 17th, 1927, pages 884-887.

By "Torrens" (Arthur Bourne). Torrens picks up Rhoda, winner of the 500cc Swiss Grand Prix, of the 500cc Ulster Grand Prix and the holder of the lap record for the Isle of Man course. He takes the bike for a ride on the worst roads he can find and concludes: "Never have I ridden a better machine".
