Before we get into this, let me state two things. First; as far as I’m concerned, cruising is about how, not what you ride, and secondly; I’ve been a fan of British motorcycles since day one. British bikes were what inspired me to start riding and I still a have a large soft spot for them. I own several in fact. I should also tell you that when Royal Enfields were still being built in Redditch, across the pond, I was enthralled by them. One of my great regrets is not buying a new Interceptor at a bargain basement price in 1970, just before the factory folded. Now you’ll understand why I was hot to take the reins of a new Royal Enfield Chrome as my next long term tester.
