Bullet with the UCE engine / Re: Royal Enfield product reviews

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

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.

Damn! Sorry to hear about your gear loss mate! I think with all the freedoms bikes offer us, it does leave us vulnerable at the same time.
I use my bike almost exclusively for touring which is I why I ended up going to all the trouble of building a set of secure, lockable panniers. Now, when I stop somewhere to explore, I can drop my cam and navigator in one for [relative] peace of mind.
One thing I won't do is carry my firearm, makes would be villains nervous and do silly things things like shoot you (at least where I come from). I carry a neat, powerful pepper spray close to me which can (and has) been useful.

Regarding cameras, have you tried a helmet mount? I find it much more stable and I never leave my helmet on the bike.

Because "8fingersandathumb" takes too long to type?

That's it! And it is not quite as catchy.........

Hell, if they just badged them "Mahindra" I'd like them every bit as much. What I really  like is that 1.5 lakh price point mentioned, or roughly just 2 Grand Americano. For that little, in this country, hell yes I'd give any  of those three scoots at least a test ride, though I really favor that red one. Even at just 293cc with 27 horses and a 6-speed box it seems like they'd likely hold their own with a Bullet 500, cruising in the 50s, which would suit my needs well enough.

I'd love to see one actually running and going through its paces.

A woman from New York was driving through a remote part of Arizona when her car broke down. A Navaho on horseback came along and offered her a ride to a nearby town. She climbed up behind him on the horse and they rode off. The ride was uneventful, except that every few minutes the Indian would let out a Ye-e-e-e-h-a-a-a-a' so loud that it echoed from the surrounding hills. When they arrived in town, he let her off at the local service station, yelled one final 'Ye-e-e-e-h-a-a-a-a!' and rode off. 'What did you do to get that Indian so excited?' asked the service-station attendant. 'Nothing,' the woman answered. 'I merely sat behind him on the horse, put my arms around his waist, and held onto the saddle horn so I wouldn't fall off.' 'Lady,' the attendant said, 'Indians don't use saddles'

I attended a very emotional wedding this past weekend. Even the cake was in tiers.
