most of the people renting enfields don't even check for a licence, and if they do, like the police, they do not know what the different licence categories are..
double check the terms and conditions of travel insurance policies as most only cover riding up to 125cc.
Only problem is if you run over a kid or suchlike and it all went to court.
I know of several people riding up there now with no bike licence.
Don't be put off by the difference between a 350 and 500 Enfield, both will do it, and learn how to twiddle with your jets... and don't overpack....less is more, but it is cold up there..
take a tankbag to try and to get some of you heavy things in there.. those huge racks the tourers have are bad for the bike handling..
