Default Royal Enfield Rocks

Dont tell me dude, royal enfield was and is always y dream bike, only thing is it requires maintenance, but that thing is there with all the motorcycles, even if u use luna 50cc or 1000 cc R1, Any machine needs to be looked after. But its all about feel that you get on bike, Royal enfield gives you a royal feel almost like a King, hence i would love to be the owner of royal Enfield

That's a remarkably bold thing to say around here even though I suppose we're all fairly open minded in a don't ask, don't tell kinda' way...

I mean Longride was a Fire Fighter for years and we all know what they get up to with those Freddy Mercury 'stashe's and the big shiny pole in the middle of the floor....hey to each his own you know? he's putting his life on the line in some of those blaze's, how they relax afterwards isn't my place to say......

Hah, I use to be a "lead Man" at the Park LaBrea Apartments ripping out apartments and putting in new floors, sinks, etc. and we had this one dude who's air condiitoning was always malfunctioning.

So finally no one would go the service call because of all the dildoes, speedy-lube and gay porno mags on top of the A/C unit. Since I was the boss I'd end up wit the work order, and I'd go in there with a face mask, gloves, a can of Lysol and a long pair of tongs to move unmentionable sh!t like pumps and other wierd sh!t off the A/C unit before I'd even touch it.

The dude was out there. Later I found out it was by bosses apartmernt. I avoided shaking hands with him from that day forward.

I bought a new 2007 Royal Enfield 500 Bullet Classic in Dec of 2007. I have two other motorcycles, so the Bullet isn't racking up mileage real fast, but it's approaching 3000 miles. The require a long, easy break in. Mines been quite reliable, but I had done my research into these bikes, and I ride mine like it was intended to be ridden-on nice back roads at up to 50 mph. Mine starts easy, runs well,and gets 65-80 miles per US gallon. They discontinued the older engine now, and have replaced it with the new unit construction fuel injected motor.

This bike gets way more attention than any other motorcycle I've owned in 48 years of riding. I went on a nice back road route I like of about 45 miles. I stopped to have a cup of coffee. One guy walked up to my Enfield and looked it over for 2-3 minutes. Two other guys seperately came in and found me to ask me about the bike. I've had guys run across four lane downtown city street to ask me about the bike. It's really quite remarkable.

I consider the Classic Bullet to be a great looking motorcyle. Mine uses no measureable oil between changes. I can check the valve adjustment in about 30 seconds total. How long does it take on a GSXR600?

I probably wouldn't want the Enfiled as an only motorcycle, but it makes a great second or third back road thumper.

My other motorcycles are a 2006 Harley-Davidson XL883, and my 2007 Yamaha XT225 dual sport.

Take care, Jon in Puyallup, Wa.

After a couple of years of research and just waiting to see what happwns, I bougt a 2009 AVL- AVL being a temprary bridge between the older iron jugs and the new UCE's.

I took a long time to break the bike in slowly, and I thought at 2500 miles, it was as good as it gets. At 5K, I was constantly amazed at how much better it was. Now, at 11K, I ride it almost to the exclusion of my other 2 bikes. It is more fun than a barrel of monkeys.

It does take more maintanence than a 2009 Japanese, German, Italian bike, but now I know the bike very well now- and I trust it. By comparison, the new BMW I got was in the shop with warranty work WAY more.

Al that said, would I recommend a Royal Enfield?
No. Enfield folks pretty much seem to know who they are without asking. Maybe a new one, but I'm actually glad I didn't get a "new" one. I should mention that the enfieldmotorcycles.com forum is a one-of-a-kind resource.

What is going on here? Posts from 2004, when I was still riding a punched-out KZ 750?

Enfield's are totally different now, unit design, fuel injection, etc. The only things that resembled the old British designed 500 & 350cc Bullet are the frames.
