Well there's a surprise. I did the interview for this article many, many months ago and had forgotten all about it. Robert Smith who wrote the article plus another on my RE Constellation previously does good research. Not sure why I look grumpy in the picture, or is that a thoughtful look? Nice article, happily he didn't dwell on the well known "challenges" we ran into at the NA Rally in Texas, although that would make a good follow up on how field repairs are easier on a Vincent than any other make. Thanks @davidd for posting the article.

I bought the magazine today and it is a pretty good article. I'll try to remember and bring it with me for Tony to autograph.

Great article. Series´ D was a obvious development. As mentioned in the article, Black Prince/Knight was the first sport-tourer, many years in advance of other marquees.

Bill said,
I didn't like the enclosed ones when I was young, Wouldn't mind one now.

A bit like me Bill, as I have a set of enclosures for my sons "D" Rap, and must get round to doing it some time.
