Well, I'll be Darned
« on: October 20, 2012, 08:35:16 PM »
A most unusual sight at the motorcycle parts store here today.

A nice 2011 G5 Deluxe RE was parked out front and while the owner (me) was paying for my stuff the cashier looks out the window and says, "Nice Royal Enfield".
I say, "Thanks.  It's mine." to which he says, "There's two of them out there."

Sure enough, a beautiful white Royal Enfield 500cc  AVL had just pulled in.

Talking to the owner I found it is a 2009 and he's had it for just a few months.
I mentioned the Forum and suggested he stop by here if he has questions or just wants to hear from fellow owners.

I think it's too bad they aren't still offering the RE in white with the gold pen striping.
That's a sharp looking bike! :)
