I just finished watching Jay Leno's video for the umpteenth time.

 When I stop to think that the Brough Superior was twenty plus years ahead of our beloved bullets in many ways it gives me a new appreciation for Mr. Brough's passion for the machine and the advanced technology of it  (for its day)

Well, they weren't called Brough SUPERIOR for nothing, were they?   :)

I love the story about how George Brough's father made motorcycles as well, so he called his Brough Superior to show they were in fact superior to those of his father!

Here are some more pictures:

The photos taken outdoors with Jay Leno look like the new replica, it looks like a brand new bike.

Also, check out the 'new BS engine' link on the left. Enlarge the photos, it's a right purty engine.

More details at the 'news and press' link.

I must retreat to my place of Zen and meditate on this.

Would seriously consider it if the engines are (for the most part) the later pressurized lubrication engines.  Total loss lubrication just scares me.
