Handcrafted in Chennai

Love'm or not, the Royal Enfield motorcycle is an icon.
Still being built by hand in India, based on designs that harken back to a finer time with a only few small updates to carry the old horse into the future.
Metal, rubber, oil and gas. I can respect that.

  1. The shop I work at (Pride of Cleveland/Cleveland Moto) is an Enfield dealer. We sell quite a few of them and the over all customer opinion is high. The side car rigs and military bikes are the hottest. I've put 100's of miles on those bikes (shop break in is at least 100 miles) and they are everything you'd expect. Not to fast, not to nimble, but sexy as hell and really fun to ride. Love the blog so far swagger.
