    The Dark Side. Can I come in please ?

    So, normally I do lots of detective work before I buy another bike (prices/reliability/ blah blah). It can take me weeks to decide about a purchase.
    Given that I havent even been near an Enfield in over 4 decades of "biking", and without given it too much thought, (and with some redundancy burning a hole in my pocket), yesterday I ordered one of the last remaining Royal Enfield "Military Modern Retro Classics" in the UK. I have no idea what I have done really. I think I just shrugged my shoulders and hit the "BUY" button.

    Off at a tangent here but given I lost my father a short while ago, its the old cliche(s) for me at the moment. "Cant take it with you"/ "No pockets in shrouds" etc etc

    Great stuff, looks great and, if you do have to do a bit of spannering along the way, it'll be easy so, no worries there.

    I saw two of these at the Hastings May Date meet yesterday - very attractive and I have always fancied one myself but have the Himmy for now...

    Somehow, because its underpowered and under braked (compared to my other stuff) and therefore, nearer the edge; It certainly makes things more exciting ! Love it

    I'm sure you will enjoy the change of pace on the RE Andy, like a breath of fresh air .... although my Interceptor is capable of some sporty performance its not what riding these bikes is all about..... we have others for that
