well it appears a few have looked at your thread and have no ideas SO this is how I would handle this situation.
don't worry too much about enfield products...LOL and go for the big stuff.
you have made progress with the dealers on your ride. those dealers sell various bikes.
again if it was me i'd go back to those dealers and ask can I review their various floor stock bikes from the Vespas to the HD range -riding gear to helmets. that is your new target - motorcycle blogger and test rider ;) those shops were fully loaded with goodies and it appears you got on well with them - your in the door and I bet you pick up quite a few more subs to your channel

I have indeed thought of going this route. I still may. I am currently waiting to hear back on an opportunity in the works. If this opportunity falls through, or my content goes stagnant I might go with it. As for now I have a few ideas cooking, such as: 1. Tech tip Tuesday. Every Tuesday I post a video of a tech/maintenance tip. 2. As mentioned before, reviews of accessories, etc. 3. Live line Fridays. I go live to answer questions and give advice on issues with Royal Enfield and once a month go live on location at a local dealership with the head technician being the guest to help answer question. These among others. Ideas? Comments? Concerns? Insight?

those ideas you have appear good if you want to get that involved in it. you could line up a members bike-or you could not LOL and do a live ejk or power commander v review. naturally not every-one likes cameras - I don't but I don't mind using them...LOL or a trial on a K&N filter -with and without. best chain for an Enfield etc  or can I swap my bars! better halogen headlight bulb or enfield with hagon shocks v stock standard. plenty of material to test out plus all the dealers goodies too. all the best on the venture

Alright guys, after many hours of hard work and a bit of negotiation, I have picked up a few YouTube sponsors. Trip Machine will be sending a product for us to take a look at and review. A few other companies (To be announced) have also agreed to partner as well. We are very fortunate to be able to pick up PR mailings this early on guys. Lets make it count. I look forward to testing and reviewing these companies' merchandise for you all. Thank you.

Nice bags and Nice presentation! :) Appears to be full grain leather, everything is double-stitchedfor durability.A weak point could be the rivets, but I couldn't get a good look at them in your video.

Thanks. The rivets seem pretty stout, going through the leather as well as that fantastically thick canvas with large backs. They should hold up nicely. I can say that I went to the local Grocers and loaded them with eats. One hold a small turkey breast, a pork roast, a bag of wild rice and a few canned goods. While the other hauled 2 six packs of Pabst Blue Ribbon and a 5th of Johnny Walker for the month.

Could a $60 helmet be a quality choice? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WrUDiW0wtI4

Ah, what a shame.

Did you let the company know, and offer them a chance to redeem themselves?

Honest reviews are are worth gold! Thanks, M4B!
I'd considered the same risers for my Electra, but now.... >:( Agreed that the QC should have caught the issue right off, and sand cast aluminum that light is definitely a safety issue!

The Leather Collection, on the other hand, rivals or beats what I've looked at at LeatherUp. Nice collection, and based on your review, good quality. I'd just like to know what kind of leather was used in your jacket. Goat, Lamb, Deer, Bison, Cow?

You are very welcome. As for the exact leather, I left a voice mail for Jack and will let you know when I hear back from him. The quality is superb!!

Is that jacket really made in the USA?  I can't sort out where the company is based from their website, but the writing style suggests a certain "international flair"...

    Okay, heard back from Jack. The jacket in the video is lamb skin "moderate" thickness. He said that it can be customized at customer's request.
