This is an interesting story. Last year Royal Enfield donated a 350 Classic to a cow rescue organization in Nepal and a couple of fellows from Revzilla built a trailer for it to carry sick and abandoned cows back to the rescue organization's corral.  Here is a link to the story.  The RE part starts about halfway down the page:

Here is a funny comment from someone on another forum on which I posted a link to the subject article. Sorry RE if it is a bit politically incorrect.  ;)

Great idea the trailer, Now when the Royal Enfield breaks down they can put it on the trailer and have the cow tow it home. Absolute Genius.

Thanks for posting! Many of my rural friends got a large charge out of it. - ACR -

That's some first rate thinking, right there!
So badass my Enfield's actually illegal  in India.

(Legal enough to pass muster if they don't look too closely in Woodbridge, Virginia, where the buses don't run at night, holidays or weekends and I'm a contender for 'Village Idiot')

I mean can you visualise that a cow on a trailer going down a steep hill and the brakes cooking, like some kind of comedy act.
