I used to have a little 80cc yamaha years ago that nearly killed me, front end blow out on what used to be the A45. So there I am sliding up the carriageway on my face with bloody great HGV's passing on either side. Thank the lord that I had a full face helmet because the chin guard had gone. Now I settle for my mobility scooter

I've had bikes but I'm realistic enough to accept that I find cars much more comfortable. I think I'd got them out of my system twenty years or so ago. As for retirement I suspect they'll keep on pushing the date back and I'll be a full three score years and ten before I get to draw a pension... An interesting anachronism is that in Wales I can have a bus pass aged 60 even though my pension probably won't happen until I'm 68

Is that a restored Enfield or have they brought the Brand back to give all of us a chance to own a piece
bygone days?
Bought brand new. Designed in the UK, Modern Euro 5 reliable engines. Manufactured in India. 3 year Warrenty. They do 650 twins and 350 singles and a 410cc trail bike.
