Ace, I just expressed a similar sentiment in 'The First Time". Check it out.
Yes, to survive you have to give people what they want, I love to tinker on old bikes and I'll never stop, but I'll do it because I want to, not because I have to do it if I want to go riding. A modern engine in a classic chassis? What on earth could be better than that? Royal Enfield has blessed all of us with their bikes, something for everyone in the model line up, thank God they haven't gone plastic and forgotten the people that love this kind of bike, like all the other manufacturers have.
