...dental floss optional. Having sold my R1200GS (sorry, it’s not you; it’s me), I’m auditioning possible replacements. High on the list of “smaller, lighter, simpler, cheaper” is the Royal Enfield Himalayan. Bike looks good on paper, and I enjoyed a short (all pavement) demo ride... but how to tell if it’s the right choice as an ADV bike? Turns out there’s a guy in Red Lodge, Montana, who rents the Himma for a very reasonable price. And so, a plan: ride to Red Lodge, ride around in the mountains in Himmas for a few days, ride home. Even if the Himalayan disappoints, it’s an excuse for a trip! So we departed the Chicago area on Monday, August 5th. Here we go!
