Randall Wagner’s Indian Warrior and Royal Enfield INT650

| 10/22/2019 12:00:00 AM

Reader Randall Wagner aboard his new Indian Warrior some 70 years ago.

Now on a New Royal Enfield.

The first photo is me, a 15-year-old kid on a shining new Indian Warrior, my first real motorcycle. The second is me, an 85-year-old geezer on a shining new Royal Enfield INT650. During the intervening 70 years I have owned or ridden just about everything from a Hodaka Ace 90 to a Kawasaki Concours 14 across countries and continents for a million or so miles. The Royal Enfield brings me back to where I started, back to what first got me hooked on motorcycling.  A lot has changed during seven decades, but, thankfully, a lot hasn’t.
