How many have the ability to deal with the aspects of fuel injection, should it ever need ?

Weíre trying to help Ben. He isnít fixing fuel injectors or carburetors. The Royal Enfield is new. It has three year warranty. Itís relatively light weight. Itís metal, not plastic. $5700 for a new bike. How can you beat that?

Kind of blew them off at first. I gave them a 2nd and closer look at Barber. I threw a leg over it. It left me wanting one. I met someone who is a dealer. He said they aren't coming back for warrantee work. Exhaust note is awesome!

Maybe even more like a Benelli 650 Tornado.


These were all cool old bikes. Now, they're mostly old junk. RE can bring you a new one, much like the old one. FORWARD to the PAST.
