Here's some ladies having fun.
So without being called misogynistic how come none of you guys I ride with are either this good looking or rock tailored jeans/leathers :lol:

Your accents don't do much for me either :oops:
You must be hanging with "the wrong crew". :lol:

I defo have a face for radio work.

They do handle well even when heavily loaded just don’t put any weight behind the rear wheel (rack and top box).

Handle a trailer fine.

1. I have hair equally as good as the ladies ;)

2. My approach to buying bike gear is to ask, "Would Steve McQueen have worn this?" (ludicrous but absolutely true!) :roll:

3. I haven't got an accent (this one may be stretching it a bit....) :lol:

Well I recently found out that Royal Enfield has discontinued production of the Bullet 500 and Classic 500.
I shall now treasure mine even more.

I had a paint blemish on the tank and put in a warranty claim, through a local dealership, last October. Amazingly, you can only see this blemish in a certain light.

Not having heard anything for six months I contacted Royal Enfield directly. They informed me that they had sent a replacement tank to the dealers on DECEMBER 4th! I know for certain that they have all my contact details yet it's been in a box in their workshop all this time.
I phoned the dealership in Port Talbot to question why they hadn't contacted me but of course, they are now in Lockdown.
Right pain in the arse ! At least I'm having a new tank before end of Classic 500 production.

There is always the Benelli Imperiale 400 to consider. 8-)
