Wanted: Great stories
I welcome news, information and tips about Royal Enfield motorcycles. Share your stories and pictures with me:

Some of my favorite stories have come from Royal Enfield riders who have written to me. Here are some you might like:

 A 'Big Head' hillclimber: Denis Gagne of Maine told us about his father Jerry's exploits on an Indian hillclimber powered by a rare Royal Enfield Big Head Bullet motor. He sent shots of the motorcycle as it looks today, and photos of his dad in action in the 1970s. There's even a video of Denis' son Bruce riding it.

Better than ever: Don McMahan of Lino Lakes, Minn., has had his 1967 Royal Enfield Interceptor since 1971 — except for three years, when it was stolen from him. He got it back and made it better than ever with the help of Royal Enfield guru George Helm. Here's the story.

A mystery is solved: An unusual looking Royal Enfield is a very rare model, sold in the United States for one year only, 1961. Its owner, Jim Luzier, hadn't been able explain what it was to daughter, Aimee. Jim died in 2009. But he left a picture of himself, taken in 2008. In what Aimee says was a playful mood, Jim had posed for a picture for a friend. Jim is shown holding up a sign that identifies the motorcycle!
