|Royal Enfield and happy rider on magazine cover.|
I spotted this cover for sale on eBay in Pennsylvania.
The image is so perfect, in fact, that I attempted to recreate it — with my Bullet and me on the cover.
I used a photo my daughter Anna took of me on the motorcycle, distorting it somewhat to more-or-less fit.
The photo is distorted in another way, as well. While the original rider was clearly at speed, Anna photographed me at zero miles per hour. If I was moving I would be wearing my helmet.
I should have buttoned the jacket!
