Any economist will tell you that your immediate neighbours will always be your most important trade partners.

What a slippery foccer that Garner was. It appears he sold the rights to the 961 engine to Chinese firm Jinlang, just days before Norton went under. They'll be able to put that engine in their own bikes from now on it would seem. A slight bit of good news I suppose if you've got a 961, as engine spares should be a possibility. Jinlang apparently have close ties with Zongshen, who were due to produce the 650 twin engine for the Combat and Nomad models.
