Keanu quote of the day

‘I love riding through Los Angeles on my own, with the wind, the sound…’

He imitates the twin-piston noise of a Norton motorbike engine.

‘And then there are the aesthetics, the beauty of the motorcycle and the smell of a hot Norton, the oil oozing out – it’s fantastic.

'I have a 1973 Norton Commando 850 Mk II Roadster with an Interstate tank on it and raised compression. It’s got rear sets (pedals) and a front fork stabiliser.

‘I am also very fortunate to have a 1972 Norton Combat Commando and a 1969 Fastback with some period engine modifications – a camshaft and slightly raised compression again, which keeps things reliable, and a Manx fender on the front.'
