This weekend I’ve been doing some paint work on my new bike. It’s been great fun and I’m really happy with the results.

@kev Looks great. Brings out the detail.

Does she ride as good as she looks?

@jamie she does. She isn’t quick (only 47bhp) and by far the slowest bike I’ve ever had, but it’s so fun and full of character. Like riding a massive 125 😂

I intend to do a lot to it over the next 6 months or so.

@kev @jamie Are you going to be polishing the aluminum or leaving that brushed look? Or is it not aluminum?

@MrDers @jamie will be leaving it brushed. Ill be getting a brushed exhaust at some point.

@kev oohh that's super nice. Is that the diesel version?

@fedops there’s a diesel version? Diesel motorbikes don’t exist to my knowledge.

@kev there is (or at least was). I remember reading about it in a motorcycle mag years back and it was the first time I'd heard of the name Royal Enfield. But of course it doesn't have 47bhp, not even close.
