Independence Day Ride

Maybe I could not have asked for a better Independence day gift than touching a Royal Enfield Bullet here in UAE !

Some of you might recollect that I had seen a guy ride a RE 535 city bike and had mentioned it in my mails.

As I was strolling for dinner I heard the familiar thump of the Bullet. I turned around – Voila, RE 535 - the same guy I had seen earlier. He cruised slowly. My pal Chris said. - Go get him.

He mysteriously stopped by the side of the road. Im wondering if the RE Bullet stopped on seeing me or was showing the colors of maintenance ;-) .

I got talking to him, showed my RE T shirt…some coincidence I was wearing it at that time! His name is Ibrahim. Hes working in the Construction Industry. He had bought the Bullet secondhand.

He said theres no Bullet showroom in Abudhabi, but there a Bullet specialist mechanic called Wilson, who imports parts from India and you can ride you Bullet here !!!!! . I have his cell no.He thumped away,saying he would be leaving back to India shortly.

Well guys…… I hope I get to see some Bullets when I meet Wilson some time soon.

Happy Independence Day Guys!

I guess this was my Independence Day Ride on the Bullet. Hope you guys had a great ride too.

Thump on,
