Made like a Gun

  
Another rifle maker took their machining expertise to two wheels. Royal Enfield. Their 500cc Bullet was a stout motorcycle during the fifties with its thumping single piston pounding away like a robe and mortar boarded teachers fist on a school desk.

  
Chrome tank with ebony top panel and gold pin striping: quite special. The Redditch badge with cannon and crown give respected symbol. A super machine that pounded a hearty note when its owner kicked it into life and rumbled a Ay along St Charles Road through Villa Park.

  
Parked nearby was the new Enfield GT Continental in rocket red. 

 
From what I hear it’s a smile inducing ride; though powered like an older machine, which won’t get you into license losing trouble. Hey! There’s my orange Bonnie in the background right!
