Enfields against the world.
Well I love Enfields,
and considering swapping my BMW
for an Enfield for the rest of my RTW
. I think the mechanical reasons are a weak argument
and as for riding a small Jap bike, I'd sooner ride a push bike !
I rode an Enfield all thru Nepal over very rough terrain and it was absolutely fantastic. I was so taken by the bike I bought one in India and is currently on a ship heading to Australia.
As for the pros & cons of Enfields It depends on what experience you are after as they are chalk & cheese, and to be honest someone who is attracted to a classic bike like an Enfield would never opt for a little Jap bike, as someone who likes the small cc's will hardly be comfortable throwing there leg over an Enfield.
But these personal views to me seemed to be put accross in the guise of mechanical malfunctions, preemptive to the actual start of an adventure !!!
But don't you just love the HUBB
