    Default Wannabe Wanderer

    Hello my fellow XBhpians,

    I'm Abhishek from Bangalore, soon to be the owner of RE Classic-500 (chrome).

    I love touring, and I believe it's the journey that matters more than the destination!

    Also, I'm pretty new to the biking scene, any suggestions, tips would be great! (I've been reading MAX, it's a great read to appreciate nuances of biking)
    Though being a Bulleteer is bit of a cliche these days, I've always wanted to own a bullet and man, am I happy!

    Sorry I can be quite a chatterbox

    Hope we'll have a good run eh?!

    Cheers!

    Happy 'Bulleting' friend. Oh sorry and welcome to xBHP. Maybe my focus was more on the new RE500 .

    Getting angry at somebody is the same as getting angry with a bike that just won't go. You should stop and start thinking.
    A good mechanic will let you watch even without charging you for it. | Riding faster than everyone else only guarantees youll ride alone.

    It is funny to know that we've been imitated and copied so well
    and surprising when we notice our mistakes are copied as well.

    @chaosaddict yeah even I can't wait to get rolling but well, the delivery got delayed, the showroom guy said it's because there was some recall issue on Classic 500.
    Any news about it? I'd never heard of recalls by Royal Enfield till now, and I'm sure it'll lift a lot of eyebrows and would be a big news if it's true.

    Hence dunno if the showroom guy is delaying, He says he'll get the bike by end of Sept and in middle of all this I'm travelling to the U.S this November.. So I'm apprehensive of getting the delivery. One thought is to buy, finish 500 Kms, down all fluids and park it in home, or to get the delivery once I come back.

    Which one'd be better? Please help me out
