Another noble steed!

I met this fellow when I was in Chaudi, southern Goa,  at the Saturday market there.  The bike was a number of decades old, and he had lovingly declared her 'Rosinante', the steed of Don Quixote.

I've processed all these images using Photomatix Pro and Photoshop, plus I processed two of them with Redfield Fine Touch.

Please click on the picture to enlarge.

A very 'baroque' older Royal Enfield in Bundi, Rajasthan

I saw this very 'baroque' older Royal Enfield while in Bundi, Rajasthan back in 2012.  Owned by a foreigner.
These images were modified at bit in Photoshop and in Photomatix Pro HDR software, and the last two also had processing with Redfield Fine Touch.  Please click on the pics to 'embiggen'.
So...what do you think?

From a few years ago in Anjuna, Goa, 100+ Enfields!

A three and a half minute video made of stills and video of the start of an Enduro charity ride, entirely made up of 100+ Royal Enfields in January 2009, starting off in Anjuna, Goa, India.  I happened to be staying nearby when I heard the unique thunder of the Bullets warming up.  Fabulous!  Looked like the Royal Enfield company was providing great support as well.

Although this documentary on You-Tube is a few years old, it, I guess you would say, lovingly shows a WW II to late 1980's short history of the Royal Enfield Bullet. Fun to watch for those of us who own Bullets. Ton-Up!

2013 Westcoast Ride To Live

I just rode in the annual Westcoast Ride To Live, an event to raise funds for The Prostate Centre in Victoria. The Prostate Centre provides Vancouver Island men with education and support, and funds cancer research.  This year the event was a bit different than previous annual events, with a ride of hundreds and hundreds of riders doing a place to place (stops at different sponsored points) rather than the longer-run  'marathons'.  Although it was cloudy and rained intermittently, it stayed dry enough (until the end of the event) for a reasonable ride.  The event's main sponsor is the local Steve Drane Harley-Davidson dealer (the local Kenco Enfield dealer also was one of the sponsors), so my Royal Enfield Bullet was out-numbered by, oh, 1000 to 1!  There were a number of other bikes from Honda, Yamaha, etc, but the only 'out of the ordinary' bikes were mine and a old Russian Yugo with a sidecar.  The event raised over $83,000!
I didn't end up taking many pictures, but here's one of my bike parked in the crowd.
