I still don't understand why every bike doesn't come with a kickstart.  I've never known anyone to say, "I really wish my bike didn't have a kickstart", and everyone who's ever had one has been happy they did at least once.

The Enfield emblem on the tank badge had poor paint and it faded because of exposure to sun. So having free time, I just used outdoor weather paint that we had lying around for a while (in red-ish colour) to give it some credibility  ;) and I'm happy with the output.

spent 50 minutes waiting in line at the DMV to add OFF_HIGHWAY registration and renew my B5 for 2013.

Not yet ....  it seems to be in cahoots with the new chain & rear tire, they are all slackers.   ( I have mentioned the bike in stored in an unheated shed in Minnesota )......

 All the recent discussions about chains prompted me to check mine. Went to adjust it and ran out of threads on the Nfield Gear adjusters. Put the snail adjusters back on and snugged it up. Beats taking a link out of the chain !
I would much rather ride a slow bike fast than a fast bike slow    Jack

Ahh...75F in Atlanta today. I took a really pleasant afternoon ride on my Bullet. I sure hope it learns to down shift from 5th to 4th and 4th to 3rd pretty soon.

it cycles up slow but it looks like it is registering correctly.

Damn Yankees are sending us their cold air and rain so all I could do was go out in the garage and gaze....

Where do you go off-road in MN with your B5?  Only OHV registration I get is for my Jeep......now you have me thinking about more mods for the C5...... 8)
