Dunlop K70's would likely do just that. they also make them in the right sizes - 3.25x19 front and 3.50x19 rear.

Ok, it seems like performance would be similar to a stock Enfield 350, and it's nor fragile if you don't thrash it. As long as I can get a 50mph cruising speed, I'm good for secondary highways. ...

Tell me about airhead singles (i.e. R25, R26, R27)

Ok, I know many folks wouldn't even consider these bikes since they are somewhat challenged in the horsepower department, but since my pride and joy is a 2006 Royal Enfield Bullet, it actually...

Note that the new Enfields ARE highway capable and are no more maintenance intensive than your typical new bike. My brother has one of the first ones with the new motor (2009 model) and in 10,000...

Nope, but maybe I'll find out who it is next weekend. We're having a Royal Enfield get together on May 28 at the Nickerson St. Saloon. I think we had 19 bikes show up last year, although many folks...

I love my Enfield! Mine is one of the old iron barrel models, and they can need some sorting (bad connectors, loctite on fasteners that come loose, etc). I put about 9000 miles on it basically...

Yeah, I'm at just about every Backfire night on my Royal Enfield Bullet (usually the only red, black, and chrome one there). In fact, both my brothers are usually there on their enfields as well,...

It's a Bullet. Probably a 350 if it's from 82. I'm not sure if they made a 500 in India at that time. If you need a manual or any parts check with either nfieldgear.com or...

I'll start by saying I pretty much agree with everything Uncle Ernie said about Royal Enfields. My own Enfield is an '06 with the old style motor and I love it, but it is like having an old bike...

Damn, Ernie. I'd send you the one I have for my bike, but it's the old iron barrel motor and wouldn't work. For what it's worth, I bought some of my tools off of the ebay sites and they seem ok to...

No doubt that these are ripe for customization, but one of the things I like about the sT is that it comes stock pretty much just how I'd like it. The tractor seat and luggage rack on the rear...

BS. 2 or 3 people had an issue with stability, which was related to assembly. The swingarm design is sound, and someone else even posted a video of a C5 at 80mph with no hands on the bars - dead...

My Iron Barrelled '06 Bullet is doing great

I'm pushing 8000 miles on my '06 Bullet with the original iron barrel motor (not the interim AVL "lean burn" motor or the new unic construction EFI motor). It certainly is not on it's last legs. A...
