    Cool Off Roading with a Royal Enfield?

    Hello,

    A friend of mine was kind enough to share his pictures of a recent trip that he and a friend took recently on their Royal Enfield.

    Who's There? A Trip to Dashavatara Temple on a Royal Enfield by Sabya Sachi Ghosh

    Here is another trip another friend of mine took as well (again, in India):

    Sariska National Park on a Royal Enfield

    Pictures were just too nice not to share. Though they aren't necessarily of TW200's, the things these guys are doing on their Royal Enfields certainly qualify them as adventure bikes in their own right...

    Enjoy!

    BSJ

    I would say that the Royal Enfields have an advantage over a lot of bikes that at least they can be worked on by most riders. They are simple and old school. When I had a Ural Gear Up I could keep it running when a lot of high tech bikes would be waiting for a tow.

    For me it was like working on a tractor.

    I'd have to completely agree with you! As well, given how incredibly versatile these bikes are, it doesn't surprise me so many people are turning to them as small adventure bikes. The guys in India are going places where BMW GS' are having a hard time breathing (18 thousand plus above sea level) and given their significantly lower weight than a GS you won't wrench your back trying to lift the thing up should you fall... oh, lets not forget the roughly 85 mpg too...

    Great pictures! A friend used to commute on a Vespa in Naroda traffic 2 up. He always craved a Royal Enfield even after moving to the USA. I recommended a Honda which he sneered at.

    Have you seen "Riding solo to the top of the world" ? I highly recommend it. I wish I'd kept my C5.

    That film inspired me to buy one! Would still have it had I stayed in Europe. Thinking of getting one again myself...

    Believe it or not, I bought the first C5 that was sold in the USA, If I hadn't got hurt and had to sell everything I'd still be riding it. Darn fine little bikes in my opinion.

    Would you believe me if I told you I was in fact the first person in the Republic of Ireland to actually buy the first Bullet EFI back in 2009! It's the bike pictured as the cover page for my blog!

    Thanks for the link, lovely piece of history there for you!
