Technology has advanced in leaps and bounds since the days when it took me hours to make them one at a time with just a drill and a file.  :biggrin:

I have never actually considered that rust could be an integral part of an alloy composition. You live, you learn.  ::)

That explains why, when you leave a Royal Enfield in a garage in South America for 8 months, it disintegrates.

Search for 'dead old battery restoration'. My skin is going to itch the rest of the night.  :imaposer:

But Danie, you only have this snippet of information from someone that you have already branded a liar.   :lol8:

That Royal Enfield may well be in showroom condition.

Even in the showroom, brand new, a RE is never in showroom condition.

Danie, I've done a biketrip with a pal in India, obviously (really!  ;) ) on rented Royal Enfields.... of course, it's the local pride first of all, and secondly you'll be hard pushed to rent anything else unless you want to spend a fortune.
We got 500cc models - which overthere is considered the King of the road (and it is, the biggest capacity bikes we've seen, and they attracted attention as the locals buy the 350cc models) - and they did well!
Torquey in a lazyish way, limited speed possible only, massive soft bags suitable for silly luggage amounts, fairly comfortable too, and the only real criticism was that we had to top up lots of oil, we ended up carrying it along after we found a can of the worst, the only brand we knew.
Oh, they looked quite well actually, especially so when these were rentals let loose in their ridiculously busy traffic by what I assume mostly tourists - no real damage anywhere, just the odd usage signs.
We did some 2000-odd km on them without a single hickup  :thumleft:

On the third day only I discovered mine had 93,000 km's on the odo... nooit ek se I thought, this simply cannot be - so I checked the odo of my mate's one!
98,000 km!
I have no idea if or how often there bikes were opened or worked on or whatevs, but that in my books is something genuinely unbelievable - and quite frankly I doubt if a Honda would do the same ..... oh wait, you're a Yammie man, but verbatim ditto here!


Noraly had (I think) two of these things, one for her trip starting in India and the other starting in South America.
She clocked up quite a few miles on them, and I don't think she had any real problems with them.
They're not bad bikes for those not overly haastig, and they will command respect when used as such  :thumleft:
It all boils down to Horses for Courses Danie, and also, when in Rome better do as the Romans do  :P
