    Another Uncle Voodoo video , How far will your GT go on a full tank?

    I get between 55 and 63 mpg on my GT. It seems to be very dependent on air temperature. The colder it gets the worse the mileage is. It seems like the bike should be able to go at least 180 miles on one fill-up if you figure 3 gallons of useable fuel and 60 mpg. Twice now my bike has died at...

    At last, Scram 411.

    Excellent, I’m jealous! I stopped by the dealer the other day and there are no less than 5 more RE’s I’d like to own. And they had all colors of the Scram. I love the looks of that bike! You made an excellent choice.

    Rocker Red GT, now with belly pan.

    Beautiful bike! I can’t believe how well those side cover stickers work with the bike color.

    Rocker Red GT side panel update

    This is excellent! The guy that owned my bike prior to me removed the stickers and I have been trying hard to find replacements. I may just have to buy some side covers. Anyway, your bike is beautiful. I dream of having a Rocker Red bike. One day I will probably make it so!

    GoPro on a Himalayan ride through the Santa Cruz hills

    It is amazing how many places around here would be opened up if I had a Himalayan. On my ride yesterday out of Victorville I made a wrong turn and eventually came face to face with signs in all directions saying “Pavement ends in 500 feet”. My immediate thought was for the Himalayan. Maybe this...

    First multi-hour ride on the Continental GT

    Well, finally achieved the magical 1200 miles on the odometer yesterday after another 100 or so mile loop in the evening hours after work. Loving every minute of riding this thing! Sunset is now early enough that I cannot make the ride without ending in the dark so I made a stop in Helendale at...

    GoPro on a Himalayan ride through the Santa Cruz hills

    Looks like a fun time and a nice road. I am rapidly coming to the conclusion that my optimum motorcycle situation would be owning not only my Continental GT but also a Himalayan and maybe even a Scram 411.

    Anyone else desperately desire the 120th anniversary bikes?

    I am always amused by statements like “…mine has been bought to ride, not polish”. Whether or not it is meant to be, it comes across as an almost arrogant, elitist put-down of people who like clean, polished and well detailed motorcycles and seems to assume there are only two mutually exclusive...

    Anyone else desperately desire the 120th anniversary bikes?

    I guess I will file that under “To each his own”. I am a motorcyclist because I like to ride. I am also a motorcyclist because I like to tinker, modify and work on motorcycles. And I am a motorcyclist because of the beauty I find in the machines, in other words, I like to look at them with a...

    Anyone else desperately desire the 120th anniversary bikes?

    I would assume they are celebrating 120 years of Royal Enfield, not Royal Enfield India. And since their bikes say “Royal Enfield” and not “Royal Enfield India” on the side, they might as well celebrate that.

    Anyone else desperately desire the 120th anniversary bikes?

    Yeah… I would seriously buy both versions and have one on display in my living room at all times.

    ICON Hooligan Perforated jacket

    After finding myself with a new to me RE Continental GT 650, I had a need for a hot weather jacket for protection in the inhospitable climate of Southern California. My immediate response to the need for a jacket was to search the interwebs for “Best inexpensive riding jacket” and came up with...

    Seeking saddlebags

    I am on the search for ways to carry stuff on my GT and this is one of the sites that has quite a few choices. I know nothing about them or where they are based. https://www.sparezo.com/

    Morning ride to the Veterans Memorial in the shadow of Mt. Shasta

    Thanks for the pics and the write-up! That is such a beautiful area. Just a bit too far away from me at the moment but I do pass through there when I head back home to Washington in the fall. Stories like yours inspire me to find new areas to ride. Finding beautiful areas in Southern California...

    Anyone else desperately desire the 120th anniversary bikes?

    Forgot this one! Probably the best since his videos are usually very well done.

    Anyone else desperately desire the 120th anniversary bikes?

    Here are some vids that talk about them. Oddly, it seems that none of the videos mention the black mirror finish on the tank, which is one of the more awesome aspects of it.

    Anyone else desperately desire the 120th anniversary bikes?

    I personally think these are two of the most desirable bikes ever made. Stunning! Bummer is, only 60 total bikes will be available in the US. Hopeful this link works. If the bikes don’t show up, refresh the page and then maybe they will show up. If not, just go to the US Royal Enfield web site...

    First multi-hour ride on the Continental GT

    Went for a 102 mile loop ride this evening, from Apple Valley CA to Barstow and then back on Route 66 again. Loving this bike! The first pic was taken along Route 66 with the sunset setting the light for me. The other pic was taken just as I was heading out on this ride. I have removed the Crash...
