Royal Enfield Desert Storm photos with Army tanks

Cycle World's article on the Royal Enfield Desert Storm posed the motorcycle with Army tanks.

The remarkably appropriate photos appeared with a series about "Bikes With Soul & Character."

Editor-in-chief Mark Hoyer liked the Desert Storm as modern alternative to the 1954 British-made single he'd owned.

"The character is there when you're riding, and you get it without all the character building in the garage," he wrote in the 2012 article.

I overlooked the photos at the time but came across them again recently. Cycle World staff photographer Jeff Allen made them at a military museum in the California desert. Take a second look.
