|Does this Royal Enfield remind you of your college days?|
That's the headline on a CraigsList ad in Bellevue, Wash.
"Relive your college days; go for a ride on this beautiful Bullet," the ad suggests.
It goes on to list a sliding scale of rates for rentals up to 14 days or more.
The photo is of a shiny, black, 350cc Bullet with solo seat.
The motorcycle does not remind me very much of the beleaguered MGA sports car I had in college. (In comparison, I suspect the Bullet would be much more reliable.)
Still, it's true that all Royal Enfields are time machines. I asked the advertiser for more information. Dhruv replied:
"I am a private individual who rents every now and then to make ends meet; it's my own machine and this is the only one I have. I did have one in my college days and have been an ardent fan ever since."
