This is my A65's dashboard, part of it, it also has an oil gauge that isn't shown.

It's mostly lies because the surge of taking off gave the big torque reading at 3grand, it actually recorded a best of 68.58Ftlb at around 6 and the HP always shows a little extra on the face of the unit as opposed to downloaded into the computer, I like these numbers better though smile This is the first data run I've done in over a year so its probably run in a bit now.

This is a drawing I did of a Norton:

It's a Veypor data logger, made in Canada. In this photo its displaying a dyno run, it usually displays speed RPM shift light and odometer in driving mode.
This is the RPM graph from the above run;



RPM graphs are the most accurate graph and I know exactly what speed it's doing at any RPM and also it tells how long it took to get there. The A65 is pretty tall geared so I only set it to start logging from 3,000 and even then without using the clutch to launch, the graph starts at 35MPH and its pretty bogged down taking a whole second to get to 44MPH, I forgot I'd set the first shift light at 6,000 so shifted at 6,667 in first with it blinking frantically; 71MPH @ 3secs, 7159 in second 103MPH 7.6sec, 5826 in 3rd 111MPH 9.3sec. Looking at it if I could get it off the line well it would probably do a fair sort of quarter mile time seeing most bikes in the sample runs reach 35MPH in less than 2secs and I'd probably be there by 110MPH.

Great drawing? Captures the action perfectly!

Is it Ray Pickrell? I've in the middle of Vol 1 of Sherlock Holmes and am learning on how to pick-up a few clues.

Or could it be the photo of him in his distinctive helmet on the inside cover of "Triumph Tuning" by Stan Shelton that helps with my deduction (Elementary my dear Watson)? He is ridng a Dunstall Norton being led by Peter Butler on the Boyer Triple - but wot else does you expect? grin

Mark, you top off having a beautiful hybrid BSA with your amazing abilities in drawing a motorcycle racing action scene.

I'm impressed and VERY appreciative.
