Recent hire of Royal Enfield 


Having not ridden a bike for some 25 years I have never lost interest in them, particularly the old British bikes. In recent times I found that Royal Enfields were still being built in India and was keen to see what they were all about without having a short test drive offered to me by a pushy dealer. I scoured the Internet and David\'s business was the only one to offer day hire of these machines. It turned out that David had just one Enfield available for hire but what a machine, I was so impressed. It was 6 years old, had done less than 3000 miles, kitted out with top box and panniers and for £80 it was mine for the whole day from 8.30am. David was kind enough to mark out the best route on my map covering various attractions including Ribblehead Viaduct, the highest pub in England and the highest railway station in England. I covered a total of 155 miles and all in beautiful summer weather with lots of sunshine. My route was varied but was mainly along remote roads, many of which were single car width. The scenery was absolutely stunning!

As for the Enfield, it performed well beyond my expectations, pulled like a train in lower gears and as an added bonus returned 80 mpg. What a day, one of the best I have had in years. David, please don’t sell this bike, you provide a great service and I am sure that there are other people out there who would love to experience the British bike experience.

Brief history of Royal Enfield

The Royal Enfield Bullet started life in the 1933 and first appeared in its current form in 1949. The company established a satellite factory in India in 1955, to help meet demand from the Indian Army. When the UK factory in Redditch (Worcs) closed in 1970, production continued in India. In 1994 Royal Enfield became part of the massive Eicher engineering group, who manufacture trucks and tractors and who have invested heavily in new plant and machinery.

In 1999 Watsonian-Squire, the World’s longest established sidecar manufacturer (founded in 1912) took over UK distribution of Royal Enfield motorcycles. Located in the Heart of England, only 30 miles from the original factory, they have worked closely with the factory in Chennai (formerly Madras) to help develop several new models, including the lean burn Bullet Electra-X.and subsequent EFI models.
