Royal Enfield C5

Photos 2 Comments

Last week, I bought myself a motorcycle – a Royal Enfield C5. It was an impulsive buy, but not something I regret. I was looking for motorcycles, more as an interest and it so happened that I visited a motorcycle store – The Daily Rider in Burlington, VT. ┬áSurprise! Surprise! The Daily Rider is the authorized dealer for Royal Enfield motorcycles. If you are from India, you KNOW what a Royal Enfield is. Well, guess what. I saw this teal beauty standing there. Its a 2010 edition Classic 500 (C5) with the new cast aluminum 500 CC UFI engine. The dealer was unable to sell it because of the color, which meant I was lucky to have a big discount on it. I test rode it and it felt like I was riding something I had ridden all my life. Actually, it was my first time riding a motorcycle, but riding a cranky vespa, had thought me well. 2 days later, the bike was in my driveway. Vermont Summers, here I come.
