Another great pix in a great series, Big Dawg...keep them coming. It does my old motorcyclist heart good to see all these excellent pictures of beautiful motorcycles from the past.

This police Velocette used to have the nickname 'noddy' as police when on it would nod when coming across police officers who were superior in rank...the police riders had to hold on to the handle bars...so nodding when riding a police motorcycle was considered the equivalent of a salute.

Interesting fact Les. I do promise more of them.
