Riding into work on a brand new 2010 Royal Enfield Bullet Classic C5 500cc fuel-injected single.

The bike was picked up on Nov. 10, 2010 at Crossroads Powersports in Kansas City, Mo., and will spend two weeks with the editors at Motorcycle Classics. An article on our impressions of the bike will appear in a future issue of Motorcycle Classics so stay tuned!

I had an iron barrel 4-speed 2002 Bullet 500 that had customized to taste then foolishly sold because I wanted a highway capable bike that I could ride long distances. My Enfield was loads of fun to ride. My replacement FJ1200 was fast and comfortable, but in the day-to-day commuting and errand running that I did, the Enfield was the better bike. The Enfield (upgraded to electronic ignition) started with one kick or a quick push of the electric start button every time, it got a smile from everyone who saw it (including the Harley guys) and more than one Indian cab driver hopped talked to me about it at stop lights. I'd buy another one in a heartbeat.

I have been riding my 2008 (old Iron Head) Bullet now for a couple of years, and I love it as much as any Motorcycle I have ever owned. I Absolutely, stay off of the Interstate Highways ! fifty five is a great running speed. and yields a consaistant eighty miles per gallon on "Regular" grade gasoline. The old carburetted Bullets are a bit "quirky" and take some fiddling and wrenching to become a well "sorted out", comfortable, and dependible machine. As I said before, I love mine as much as any of the five or six that I have owned over the past forty years. I ride it regularly to commute the 70 mile round trip to Nashville.
