Enfield Bullet on the wall

No confusion with Pink Floyd and the wall :) I have always been amazed and even now continue to be amazed at the infinite possibility of modifying and using the Royal Enfield Bullet. If you notice, most of the bikes remain and continue to be used as is without much mods - Ducati , Harley, Triumph .... Ya - You see them on the road - and you know.

Enfield Customizaton is a joy to watch and the use of the Bullet in its various art forms.

My good friend Jayan S R in Bangalore sent me these pics from a fwd. I'm not sure where this is and I shall update it as soon as I come to know.

Look at the brilliance below..probably the guy thought.... hmmm  Oh an old Enfield!  Hmm what can I do different ? Aha there I'm building my boundary wall.. well swell ... Let me place it among the cement in the wall !

Just see what we have here ....  Voila !



See the brilliance ... Lovely !

Thanks Jayan for these pics and I look forward for more details.

Jayan SR is an awesome rider and has a stable of  bikes from RD350 to RE CI 500 to KTM. Great to know him and is a source of  inspiration.

Cheers

bikerBT.blogspot.com -- Celebrating 10 years of motorbike blogging


It feels great to celebrate 10 years of blogging in 2016 on motorbikes though most has been about Royal Enfield Bullet motorbikes. The frequency of posts have been varying over the years. But I have blogged here through my travels across, Asia, Middle East and Europe.

Thank you readers for your support. 
May the force be with you !




Good timing getting a Royal Enfield Bullet watch which looks like a Bullet speedometer :) at this years Delhi Biker's Fest 2016

The milkman's favorite - only Enfield Bullet

Challenges have made motorbiking attractive. The Enfield Bullet cast iron engine bike 'had' many factors which made it very desirable .. left side brakes , kick starting it with pressure adjustment, the maintenance, balancing it, not too perfect braking  etc... and of course not forgetting the iconic 'thump' of the engine and the Status symbol.

The new enfield bullets of course... button start and zoom away :)

I chanced upon a milkman on a new Bullet. Apparently come what may to the Indian market .. Ducati, Triumph, BMW, doodhwala (milkman's)  ka favorite is the Bullet still !



Cheers!
