RE: I can't be the only one thinking it about the Norton...
Maybe i'm old fashioned but last time I headed off down Bray Hill in a race I knew that i'd have to overtake some of the riders in front of me and by unwanted design my position in the race would benefit from some of them breaking down or falling off - it's all intrinsical parts of road racing. You don't just happen upon a marginally slower rider right there in your way, you'll get a glimpse in the distance of them or a reflection of the sun from their screen / fairing on the road ahead it's then down to you to figure out where you are going to catch them and where you are going to do them safely, you're also trusting the guy in front and at the same time leaving him enough road after going past .. My very very good late friend Ian Young was No 1 the year he lost his life, he told me it felt unexpectedly different starting No 1, it was not a problem but just that little bit different so I suspect it's not for everyone.
