Hello All,

I bought an interceptor at the end of 2019 and I liked it so much (especially the engine), I traded my bullet in for a 2021 Continental GT. Did not put a lot of miles on her last year. Looking forward to some rides this year. BTW, I have lots of late model Bullet items (new/OEM) for sale in the Bullet swap meet section. I live on Camano Island.

So you have both a 650 Intercepter and a 650 Continental GT? Good job,👍 Sounds like you have both bases covered. I own a 2019 Continental 650 GT. I I’m holding out for the 650 Super Meteor. 🤞

When the weather gets nice again, hopefully be for the chip seal comes out. I’d like to do a trip around the Olympic Mountains. Starting around Olympia HWY 101 up to Port Townsend, Sequim, Hurricane Ridge, then just follow 101 around to Long Beach WA.

Also I’d like to do a ride to Dry Falls, Grand Coulee Damm, HWY 20, Cascade HWY. I’ve done these rides many times before but never get tired of the beauty.

Anyone that wants to come along on their RE is welcome. At this time I don’t know what I’ll be riding but it will be a RE for sure.

Anybody going to the MoskoMoto meet-up in Seattle on the Apr. 8-9? Two Kick Coffee and MotoShed. Never been there, but it looks interesting and it's pretty close to my work.

Gray is my favorite chrome color. 👍

Here is my favorite YouTube guy. It’s so scary how much this Gent and I think so much alike.

Excellent video. So many good points regarding the "slow down and smell the coffee" sentiment. No two up touring on my 2021 Himalayan, have the CanAm Spyder for that. My '85 1200 Gold Wing needs attention to RPM and gear selection, not as much as the Himalayan, but enough to keep you engaged with the bike. The more I ride the RE, the more I appreciate my rides. The local dealer I frequent, Kenco, is a wealth of information and practicality. Glad I bought the Himalayan.

Rednaxs60,
The wife and I spent a week on Lopez Island here in Washington state. We took my 2010 Bullet and a Tandem bicycle. It was one of the best one week Holidays we ever had. The Bullet work brilliantly as the top speed as I remember is only 35 mph on the Island. No surprise here as you may know the Bullet frame was designed in 1948 for riding the back country roads of England. The Royal Enfield Bullet was the longest unchanged production run of any motorcycle having remained continuously in production since 1948. Amazingly the Bullet is the only bike that I’ve ever ridden that doesn’t feel at all top heavy when riding two up. Maybe that’s why it is the longest model ever.

I put a rear trunk with a backrest on the Himmy when we do small country back road day rides on it. But the rest of the time we take my old HD 2011 twin cam Road Glide Ultra with a warmed over 103 ci motor.
