Royal Enfield surprises vintage bike lovers

A Royal Enfield Bullet proudly posed with other great motorcycles Feb. 1 on the second day of the motorcycle gathering in Dania Beach, Fla. I wrote that my unwashed Bullet was the only one present the first day, and it was parked on the street far from the show bikes.

Michael L. Woulfe put his pretty Bullet at the center of the line-up for a fun run the next morning. Here's his account:

"About 50 bikes -- about half antiques -- took part in the Sunday poker run. No bikes broke down. But, the chase vehicle with the rescue trailer did! Mine was the only Royal Enfield. Yes, an intentional ringer, and boy were people surprised when they read the information card I attached and saw it was a 2002!"

The two-day event was run by the Antique Motorcycle Club of America Everglades Chapter. The chapter has its rules about what motorcycles are eligible for competition, but things were more relaxed for the Sunday fun run. Thanks for showing the Royal Enfield flag, Michael.
