How many RE's?
« on: August 04, 2009, 10:31:18 PM »
ERC and I new there were 3 REs in Chatham,MA.(Pop. approx. 6,000) but last week a new guy rolled in to the boat yard with one.That makes 4 in a fairly small town.  I don't know if thats about average or an exception.
Watch out for the guy behind the guy in front of you

I've never seen another one either, I like that.

Nor have I.

I must retreat to my place of Zen and meditate on this.

I have heard there are other ones in Milwaukee, but they must hide when they hear me coming.

Rockerbox is this weekend, so that should draw them out.

  Two in this house, two more in town (somewhere) but haven't seen them yet.  And all for 18,000 people in this one horse town.  Guess maybe that would be some kind of record.  Will.

Never spotted another in my town of around 30,000 but the owner of a local bike garage reckons he services a few.

I live in Springfield Illinois, pop 110,000. I've personally seen a grand total on ONE, and that guy was from out of town. I talked to him at a local bike shop. This was a few years ago, he bought his bike in Chicago, a 3 hour drive north. I'm not saying there's not more, but I pay attention to the bikes I see on the road.

I think RE could do good in this area. This is motorcycle country. We have the Springfield Mile race twice a year, and there's a healthy vintage bike community in town. I'd love to have one, that's why I lurk around this website. But, with the sparse dealer network, it'll probably stay this way.....not too many people are going to drive 3 or 4 hours to buy a bike.

I occasionally see one in Saratoga, and I have ridden with a fella west of me with one (once) but never heard from him again. I NEVER see any Urals besides my own, but I've heard rumors of one in Schenectady.

Redcat forgot to add the two other Enfields I own a Trailblazer and an Apache.I guess you can consider them Enfields. That would bring the total up to 6. I think we are going to win the prize for the most.    :D   ERC

Well there are three that I know of around the greater Rockford Illinois area, Mine, an early 2000s one sits in a shop waiting for a loving owner, and one owned by some attorney known as the Bulldog...

Other than that I know of no otyhers in an area with well over 300,000 people...

I hope they are out there, and I would like to meet them.
