Murder in Paradise
« on: August 23, 2013, 06:46:45 AM »
That's the name of a show that is on PBS. Its about an English Detective that some how ends on on a tropical island. Anyway, one of the island police force, in the first episodes, rode a bike that to me looked like a rated out enfield with an even worse side car.

Tonight, it was a very short scene, he goes to start his bike and it very clearly says Royal Enfield! Didn't get a chance to ID it other than appears military green. Just thought it was cool to have one show up as a regular on a TV show.

I like the show. I tried streaming the show from a website. No can do. I'd love to see a Bullet in Jamaica!

The early episodes didn't feature the Enfield. I may be mistaken but i think it was a Triumph.

It featured prominently in last Sunday's episode. The character of Duane was tasked with chasing down a baddie. It is a G5 by the way, with what looks like a Watsonian side car.

This bike was stored for 3.5 years.  It had fallen on its side for awhile. I claimed it about a year and a half ago. Thus the low miles and inexperienced owner.
