Gone over to the dark side.
« on: February 26, 2021, 07:07:52 PM »
Hi folks,

I've got rid of my Tiger 800 XCX and bought myself a Royal Enfield Interceptor 650.

I know it's not a Triumph but it sure is a lot of fun to ride.

Its a nice bike, I really enjoy mine.

But I would miss my Tiger for touring, or going on rides of over 80 miles.

Hi Steve
Whats that in the foreground, in front of your Enfield; looks like a motorbike......
Only joking, very nice machine; enjoy it,

If i could have two bikes, this would be a candidate alongside the Tiger. 
Enjoy!

Hi.
Couldn't get rid of the tiger just yet so ordered a new Meteor 350. Should be here early May.
Royal Enfield seem to have really upped their game.
Enjoy.

If I think on, I'll post on this thread after I've done a few hundred miles.
