and as usual, I have chosen a different tack.
I am not looking for a heavy cruiser, a cafe racer or a crotch rocket. Nor am I looking at some kind of chopper. I am looking at a simple motorcycle, a dispatch rider's type of bike.
I think if I decide to get a bike I am going to go with a Royal Enfield. It's a rather simple, inexpensive machine and pretty Old School.
Of course, as an old man I am not going to take the damned thing into town. It will only be used for either very local shopping or for trips in rural areas.
It sounds like a pretty good old man's type of machine. We'll see what happens.
