Good report, even better directions. We only butcher the Kings english
on this side of the pond!!
The exhaust is that fitted as standard to my model...the Woodsman.
It is made by the UK importers,Watsonian Squire,along with the special left hand sidepanel.
Yes,they are 19" tyres.....on 19" rims .
The bashplate (underplate) is about 6mm thick alloy...again,it was fabricated and fitted as standard by Watsonian Squire to the Woodsman.
Nice pictures, and the bike is awesome! Does it comes with the skidplate?
It reminds me of a 1973 Honda CL350 that I owned...I like the look on the Enfields!
I can relate to that: I've been described as dim bulb, myself.......
Hey, it's a motorcycle (nice one at that) with camping gear, can't beat that!
which model Royal is that?
Sweet bike... I would love to go camping in Europe!
"1973 Honda CL350 "
aha... Honda 350 Scrambler. Another timeless classic.
I had a 175 Scrambler that I rode the wheels off. Had an incredible amount of fun and went tons of places on that bike... good memories. Sometimes simpler is better.
Yes..the bashplate (skidplate) is a stock component on my model.
Hiya, it`s the Royal Enfield Electra Woodsman....it has the carburetted 'lean burn' engine.
It isn`t the very latest 'unit' construction engine though (which has EFI).
I think it`s a UK only model which first appeared mid 2008.
i'm really lusting over your bike - is that a sin?
i wrote the earlier post without seeing your unbelievable list of bikes. again, let me say - holy hell!!!
now i'm lusting even more, this can't be healthy...
The 'saddlebag' is a British Army `58 webbing pouch/pannier.
They`re very adaptable due to multiple webbing straps and clips fitted to them.
Easy to get ??
I`ve got three of them .
I use two (one each side) on my Urals to carry bulky but lightweight sleeping bags in.
You should be able to get them off eBay or an online Military Surplus shop.
As my signature says.........................I`d only waste my money otherwise...
Beautiful bike and the photos of the country roads were very nice. The look of the Royal Enfield motorbike and the English countryside fit quite well together. Thanks for posting
Great report and love those Enfields.
I don't know why I love those instrument clusters so much.
