Dad and I took a couple of bikes out for a nice ride along sunny country lanes yesterday.
With no stupid cars and no distractions from the current millenium, it made for one of those time-machine trips we often stumble into with our classics.
Like the time Svitol and I took our Nortons out to lake Vico.
Yesterday, it was the Matchless and the Moto Morini "Corsarino" (the little pirate).
The Matchless is doing really well, we tightened up the steering and soldered an uncooperative battery connection, but other than that it is a real pleasure to ride on a day like that.
If you're not in a hurry, and if you want something that's truly simple and strong, consider a Matchless/AJS from those years...
