    Just in from the cold on my Enfield Woodsman!!

    Blimey it was reet cold today out on the woodsman even with my layers!!! Took the Enfield out for a spin this afternoon as I'm still running it in and work has not enabled me to use it as much as I would have liked.Its a great little bike ,goes well ,but I'm limited to 40-50 mph while running in. It sounds great quite loud from the upswept pipe and stops well with the disc up front.Starting is easy ,kick or electric and its a nice way to see the world as you futt futt futt along!! I love it,and have done many many miles on Enfields in the North and South of India.I thought it may not work having one here ,but it really does and brings a big grin to my face ,which,working in the NHS at the momment I really need

    You won`t get a great deal more out of it when it is run in!

    Glad you`re enjoying your Woodie mate...not ridden mine for a fair few months.

    Lovely retro look to it. Those bikes are renowned for their fuel economy.... It would be really interesting to hear what your getting mpg if you get around to recording it. Enjoy the the back roads adventures !

    From the pictures it looks to be losing a fair amount of oil

    Is it hard to keep it looking like that?
    There can only be 11 and I'm one.

    the bike looks nice but your tax disc should be on the front left so you wont get done if they dont see the disc.

    That'll do nicely

    MPG is the bonus part on an XCountry - Mine has given 80mpg before now but mid 70s is more typical. Just as well with the small tank.

    Resurrecting and old thread,sorry !!

    How tall are you Woodsman boys ? I quite fancy one as a cheap second bike,especially after watching Guy Martin on his Enfield in India.
    But I read elsewhere that they are very uncomfortable if you are tall (I'm 6'1").

    Tarka must be selling his soon ??
