    Greetings. I am looking for anyone who can tell me about the handling abilities of Druid Forks. They were used pre 1930s, mostly on Nortons. I am interested in how they handle on the road. I don't have a make or year in mind, just general information. I've heard reports of handling like a plate of jelly, to people who seem to think they were OK. Any thoughts?

      If the list above is any guide, they must have been reasonably good.
