Consequently, while I’ve ridden the RE at least three times a week since it arrived, on average the trips are usually about twenty miles a clip, so I’m hard-pressed to put more than 60 miles a week on the thing. A large part of the problem is that the bike’s cruising speed is limited to about 55 miles per hour, partly due to the small size of Indian horses, which don’t seem to produce nearly as much power as their British or American counterparts. In truth, my 1970 BSA 441 Victor will blow this thing away, but mainly because at any speed above 60, the C5 Chrome tends to wobble like a drunken sailor. Spend too much time with the RE on the highway and you’re liable to find yourself stuffed into some Peterbuilt’s grill, which I’m certain is a bad way to go. But when I’m headed to the café, it’s likely as not the Enfield that gets used. Unfortunately, the Putnam Diner, my breakfast stop of choice, is only about 8 miles away, so I don’t exactly put on big numbers.
