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.

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.

Royal Enfield North America sent me a PR package with merchandise for a video. They also sent items that are not available ANYWHERE (V.I.P. Gift Items I was told). As it would be kind of pointless to review them in the
video (Uploading now), I thought I would show them to you guys here. This is a bottle opener/Magnet in a nice presentation case.

Superb design, but poor execution. The carabiner clip that is its handle is VERY weakly attached to the mug by a too-lightly spot-welded hinge tab. Mine's made of some sort of nice enough aluminum, but didn't even last the weekend up at the RE/Triumph National Rallies in Oley, PA this summer, and it wasn't like I was using it to pan gold with...

This is a steel coffee mug.

Some years ago I bought a Triumph-brand "stainless steel" coffee mug similar to that one you received from RE. One day while I was drinking my instant coffee, the handle just detached from the mug and dropped hot "coffee" into my lap.   :o   I really wanted to join the McDonald's lawsuit to pay for washing my pants but I couldn't find enough owners of the Triumph coffee mug to join me in a class-action court action.   :'(

Alright guys, I would like to thank all of you for your continued support. A bit of an update on my channel; we have managed to accumulate over 1,000 subscribers and 3,059 view hours. That is incredible! According to YouTube's new rules that were put in place this in January of this year, in order to be monetized (Get quality product sponsorships and advertisers) a channel must accumulate at least 1,000 subscribers, and 4,000 view hours in a 12 month period. We are almost there! We only need 941 more hours by December 20th. What would this mean for everyone? It would mean better product sponsors for RE accessories to review for you guys, advertisers would be attracted to the channel which would mean better giveaways for you guys and I would be able to make money for more products that you guys may request I review. So, let's work together guys, We can do this. Thank you so much for everything, and I will continue to strive for excellence for you. https://www.youtube.com/user/pedhead25

Woo hoo! Thanks for the goody packet, can't wait to see what's inside!  I don't know a lot about the old Enfield/Indians, but I do think they're pretty cool! Here's one of my favorites;

       Can you tell me what that cable that runs to the cases just below the cylinder does?

[...Snip!] In order to be monetized (Get quality product sponsorships and advertisers) a channel must accumulate at least 1,000 subscribers, and 4,000 view hours in a 12 month period. We are almost there! We only need 941 more hours by December 20th. [Snip!...]

An easy way to toss a couple-few nickels into the Maddman's tool pouch would be to just click this from time to time. Better yet, why not just bookmark it?:


That'll just play ALL his videos one right after the next. Hell, even if you've already seen them all, like me, just click it and go play a couple of rounders of naked croquet, or whatever the hell you kids get up to nowadays.

    Thank you Bill. Everyone knows that pets LOVE the sound of my voice, especially while you're at work. Or the Market. Or just away. What's that you say? You don't have a Pet for me to keep entertained? Ghosts need entertainment too. Maybe you have a mouse.... They HATE the sound of my voice. Ask yourself; Do you want mice to take over your Home? Best to Ward them off by playing my videos.
    And Bill, Naked Croquet can be ivigorating in these temperatures. Seriosly though, thanks guys We are at 3,117 view hours, Only 883 to go.

Another great review, Is the master cylinder as angled as it looks in the film? just wondering on how much leeway there is for level as the brake pads wear
No distance is to far, No Speed is to slow 2012  EFI Bullet.
 K&N, sport muffler, 18tooth fr sprocket, Avon style fairing, Givi panniers (or 1958 pattern British army haversacks)

The angle really isn't that awkward. I put the bike on it's side stand, turned the handlebars to the left (completely level), and top off. Done.

These are copies of the Napoleons (Japanese copies of the British Stadiums) I had on my last four bikes. I might try these next time.
It's the right part number so it might fit.
The Dremel might help.
Whoops.
