Spring is upon us and once again we start the riding season with a great event. Every year the Delaware Valley Norton Riders organization hosts the annual "Gathering of the Nortons" event at the Washington Crossing Historic Park. This year's event was the 21st and as usual it was a great event with lots of Norton's on display as well as an assortment of other British, American and Japanese motorcycles.
I rode in with the Monmouth County Kruizers group and later left with the RAT group (Riders Association of Triumph), my usual riding buddies.
As usual, I took lots of photos and obviously had to take a photo of my pride and joy, my amazing Yamaha Super Ténéré.
A beautiful Harley Davidson
The Norton Commando is a British motorcycle with an OHV parallel-twin engine, launched by the Norton Motorcycle company in 1967. Initially a 750cc displacement but in 1973 it became an 850cc.
There were probably over 50 Norton Commando's on display. The event is always a great get together of Norton's.
Besides Norton's there were quite a few other motorcycles, some well known others not so much. I had never heard of the Condor A350, a Swiss military motorcycle.
Two British Matchless motorcycles still in good shape.
The Norton Commando VR880 was built by Kenny Dreer in the late 90's. The VR880 is basically a ground-up rebuild of an old bike using many modern improvements and a bored-out motor.
I will post photos of other motorcycles on a later post.
