Put some rough rubber on this Enfield. Every time I see your pics and filmpjes I'm scared that you're gonna fall down. But if you're still alive it means you upgrade your skills quite fast.

BTW I don't recommend my front tire. It's Bridgestone Trial Wing TW101 and it doesn't work in loose sand and mud, specially when it's 19' tall and 110mm wide and it's a 20 EUR second hand... On loose or wet stuff I'm all over the place fighting for my life. Next season I'm going for something with bigger teeth, even if I loose some tarmac capabilities.

How do you find the size of your Enfield? I have some issues with my FT (which is a bit bigger than Royal) and you're even taller than me. When I sit my laps are flat and it's difficult to stand up, and when I do stand I have to lean over the front and my knees are just a little bit lower than the handlebars. I'm definitely going for tall MX handlebars and I'm gonna make a new seat, at least 5cm taller. If that doesn't help I'll lower the pegs.

Doing fine, doing fine! And how are you doing, my Polish friend?

I love what you did to you bike and your photography is excellent and breathing atmosphere as always. Still very jealous of the places where you get to ride....


I do really need new tyres for the Enfield, haven't really decided which ones yet though. People seem eager to recommend Heidenaus, but they're expensive and I fear they are a bit of an overkill for a 17 hp bike.

The size is actually fine, the bike is a lot bigger than it looks. Standing up my position is pretty good, sitting down the seat might be a bit low too (or the pegs high), I have a bit too much trouble getting my feet off of the pegs quickly. So a new seat is also high on the wishlist.

Thanks for sharing. I may use it too.

great escape

Today was very misty, I went into the woods to take some pics. It was pretty cold, couldn't see shit cause my visor was fogging up, had to go low and slow, but it was worth it.

I think it would be more than annoying, looking at the play between the tire and the frame and then looking at the suspension travel......
