  • Last had an A10 in 1976, in 2011 it was time for my 2nd one. It was the project from HELL (but I learned a lot....)

hi all. i m trying to find the right cruising speed on the motorways. 65mph feels safe but rougth in the pot holed inside lane. the motor smooths out a little at 70 plus. thinking of cruising at 75-80 and hogging the middle. anyone else touring  on their a10?
how about you racers? can you cruise at max revs for long?

1956 A10 Golden Flash EA7-168x, CA10 913x, left BSA together for Liverpool, 5th Dec 1955.

1949 B31 rigid “400cc hot rod” (favourite bike)

1949 C11 rigid, but why!!! (cos it was cheap)

1937 B21, missing parts so mission impossible?

1952 Armstrong Siddeley Whitley for rainy days (with wife).

GL1800 Goldwing not sure why, maybe cos it always starts

Ah yes BS, I should have thought a bit harder Northumberland has similar

BTW I reported a pothole last week, it and several others have now got an orange outline, also piles of white salt have appeared at various banks and hills, must be an election or something in the offing (please don't take that as a political comment, just an observation gained over 75 years)

Motorways? not much of a worry in Norfolk  :(

Norfolk is always a favourite ride out for me on older stuff from the Essex badlands. Easy access on a more countrified route.
