Here is a short blog regarding Royal Enfield providing a couple of high schools motorcycles to customize. The one in the picture is an INT 650  ::)

The 500s went to schools and the 650s went to the women. One is a flat track racer, one is a road racer, one owns a DIY bike shop in Toronto and I forget what the other one is. They are competing against each other but also helping each other in ways that women do. They will have an exhibition race at selected flat track venues this year. We already got tickets for the Southern California races.

Speaking of races, MotoGP at Austin has been postponed until November. Trying to rebook flights and hotels now.
