I guess we were'nt really too surprised about the Enfield reliability. I think we were just hoping for better luck in getting bikes that might not break down.
" I presume by the foreshadowing that something really bad happens to the bike....." Yeah, we had to drop the engine and split the case!! I don't know if anything worse can happen aside from crashing the thing!! ;)
The overall experience was out of this world and I wouldn't change a thing. Next time, no Enfield though.
