I LOVE your pic.

And now, a Royal Enfield story...

I had an 04 Bullet some time back.  I had taken it to Florida and rode the northeast coast for a few weeks.  While sitting in the parking lot at the fort in St Augustine a much older woman came over to see the bike.  She literally had tears in her eyes, as she told me that she honeymooned on a Bullet in England in 1955.

I had the bike up on the center stand, and she was able to climb aboard for a photo.  It made her, and me, very happy that day.
