The New Royal Enfield

I've you've read my blog for a long time, then you know of my enchantment with Royal Enfield motorcycles. A model new to the US this year is the C5, pictured above. This image came from a New York Times slideshow on the marque. Beautiful!

Yes, impractical. But beautiful. I could tell you about the technological wonder that is the C5, except that it would only be considered a modern motorcycle if you threw it back in time 40 years. Still, the sight of it is enough to make me catch my breath.

If you could own just one motorcycle, what would it be?

Make mine a Bullet 500 Deluxe.

I have a Kawasaki Vulcan Custom LT - and it's a great bike for the price. What would be my ultimate motorcycle, if cost were not a factor?

You can't go wrong with a BMW. Technologically, at least.

I like what I have, right now. A great starter bike. I would love this: 2010 Fat Boy Lo or Sportster Nightster.

I have a CF Moto V5 just like this.
