Heading up to the Catskills tomorrow to visit the Motorcyclepedia museum in Newburgh and some vintage MX racing up at Unadilla. I'll let you know how it goes, but first impressions are that it's a wonderful toy. Only 29hp so it's not in the same class as the Bonnie which can be used like a real motorcycle. This thing is not much changed from when it was introduced in the 1940/1950s.That's one of the new Continental GT's, John. Good stuff! Was it a test ride? Would you rather have that or a Trumumph Bonneville?
Luckily I can ride and not have to worry about ownership. They are such visceral machines.I'd like to borrow one of those Enfields, but yeah, ownership is not attractive.
Quick story...How bad can they be? They've been updated quite a bit over the past few years.
Looks like a classic cafe racer, (if I recall correctly( a la Dunstall Dominator and Norton Commando. Great photo!Luckily I can ride and not have to worry about ownership. They are such visceral machines.
