Please excuse me for not being some incomprehensible spambot. They seem to be the foremost contributors to this Himalayan sub-forum lately. But I just popped in here from the "Iron-Bellied Geezers" neighborhood to tell you whippersnappers that there's a very pleasant to watch YouTube review of the Himalayan titled, "Royal Enfield Himalayan BRUTALLY HONEST REVIEW: A McDouble of a Motorcycle!"  found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQwA5t8cnkE. Maybe you've caught it already? Maybe not.

If you enjoy the majestic scenery of the wild southwest like I do, with scads of mesas and buttes and arroyas, replete with swoopy drone footage of same, you'll have a fine time...and  the fellow makes lots of good fair points about the Himi.

Now, get off my lawn!


BTW, WTF is going on with the Forum's word-wrapping? Have we no margins, gentlemen?
So badass my Enfield's actually illegal in India.

Thanks for posting the link to that video, Bilgemaster. It was a really great review. And those riders sure can ride in the dirt a lot better than I can.  ;)

Yep.
By the 0:37 mark I would be like riding in Puckerville.
  The reviewer works with a lot of common sense, as well as experience and knowing what's in the market.

         That is simply one of the best I've ever seen from any criteria you might want to use (except the Himalayan trips).

          I watched it with the sound off so as not to be influenced and I was impressed. I wish I still had the ability and the balls and the confidence to ride that road. Now my palms just drip sweat when the edges give you no place to go but down; badly down. I think I'd actually make a Faustian deal to get just one whole day and then pack it in.

       Now I'll go put the sound on ;D ("Somebody spoke and I went into a dream").
