    Hey guys! I actually joined almost 2 years ago but I've been out of riding for a while now. recently picked up a new bike (my first bike actually :biker: ) and loving it! Royal Enfield Bullet 500 - it's a bit on the slow side, a very relaxed ride lol, just something to play around with modifications till i get off LAMS

    Welcome back. Interesting choice with the bike - I know one of my mate is planning to get one, he reckons it's better than the Bonneville and plans to turn it in to a cafe racer.

    It'll be good to know your thoughts on Enfield.

    Actually the guy I bought mine from was getting rid of his Enfield because he got a bonneville. Didn't like the lack of power on the Bullet.

    I'm planning to turn mine into a cafe racer/bobber mix up as well. They do wear there modifications really well. But they are an absolute pain to maintain, mine broke down yesterday. I was stuck on the side of a road for 5 hours, borrowed tools for a spare parts dealer to try and fix it. Ended up storing it in the warehouse of a local business.

    That's not good. I thought the export quality was better than the ones they make for Indian roads.

    Also - I noticed you have a GSX600 as previous bike and you are on your LAMS? Did I miss something?

    Haha, not a previous bike, belongs to my brother.

    The newer Enfields with fuel injection are much more reliable. I just seem to have found the exception. Although that could have something to do with its previous owner.
