After I left Glen I caught up with Mike from the royal Enfield owners club. Mike has an iron barrel bullet like mine, and very nice it is too. We hadn’t met before but we hit it off right away because we’re both WWII aviation fans.
Together we gave the bike a really good clean. I’ve heard that quarantine officers like to charge large “cleaning” fees if they see dirt on your bike. I don’t know if this is true, but either way a really good clean will help.
I didn’t get a picture of Mike, except when he was asleep in the chair. It hardly seems fair to post that one though! Instead here’s a picture of my bike’s private parking spot, in Mike’s back garden!
