Must See TV::Trigger, Weapons That Changed The World.

Random Notes

Be sure to check out the Military Channel’s new series “Triggers, Weapons That Changed The World” which premiers Wednesday, November 30th from 10-11 PM (e/p)

In the premier episode of this six-part series, host Wil Willis, from the Military Channel’s hit series Special Ops Mission, examines the COLT M1911. Keep your eyes peeled for a special cameo appearance by a Royal Enfield motorcycle and a machine-gun. We can’t really say more than that right now, don’t want to scoop the premier and ruin all the fun.

Just remember to set your DVR, get a blank tape or set the date aside in your calendar.

Ian and his Bullet Military started in Washington, D.C. and traveled with the convoy through 8 states to Wyoming.

However, about an hour outside the convoy’s stop in Rawlins, Wyoming when the worst happened: Ian was struck by a car while riding his Military. Fortunately, Ian lived to tell the tale but unfortunately, he was badly injured and unable to continue his journey.

Royal Enfield NYC Show

Events

Our thanks to everyone who visited the Royal Enfield display this weekend at the International Motorcycle Show in New York City. There was a great turn out again this year and lots of enthusiastic interest in the bikes. There was a lot of positive response to the new UCE models and (quite predictably) the Cozy Sidecar rig was a veritable photo magnet.

Special thanks also to our participating local dealers: Leon Stanley of Cycle Icons and Mike Depalo of UK Motorports.
