I you have ever seen " One Crazy Ride " or " Riding Solo to the top of the world "you will never forget the sound of the Enfields chugging up the mountian !!.
I currently ride a 07 DL1000 that I have put 50,000 miles on.I don't really trust it,I had alot of electrical issue with it a few years back.I built a sidecar rig awhile back based on a 82 GS850,air cooled,carbs,steel frame and dead simple to maintain.I ride year around,200 miles a week and want a air cooled,SIMPLE motorcycle that when it needs repair I CAN DO IT !!.As I get older,going fast isn't as important what is,is going far and being able to repair my bike anywhere.I will be in the position to sell the V and get something else in about 6 months so the Enfield is on my list as is a air head BMW and a Kawasaki W800 etc.
