    I was just looking through some photos of a trip I did in April this year and thought why not put up some pics on MCM, nothing to do with China but what the hell! I went to Nepal to meet up with my family who I hadn't seen in a few years and we went hiking and all that. BUT - I did hire a Royal Enfield in Pokhara and sneak off on my own for the day!

    This was the oldest bike in the shop, maybe a 1947

    This 500cc was the largest

    Can't remember much about this one it was just parked on the street

    I stopped in a small village on the other side...

    And found a little shop...

    This was taken another day but Nepal is full of such views




    So that's it really! I'd like to go back and do a proper trip one day but who knows when that'll be! Nepal itself was stunning and the people are fantastic. As for the bullet - it's a bit of a bitch to ride with the gears on the wrong side and in reverse order but a lot of fun all the same. I felt it had plenty of power for Nepal and kinda reminded me of the crappy Chinese bikes I've ridden in the past! It needed a lot of riding but was also rewarding and I loved the experience.

    The Enfields are really, truly beautiful bikes, very much in that old Steve McQueen groove. I'd be honored to have one in my still minuscule collection!
