Royal Enfield Bullet a reminder of college days

Does this Royal Enfield remind you of your college days?
Royal Enfield Bullet For Rent: $150.

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."
