Re: Enfield Himalayan

Saw the bike at the NEC and thought it looked really cool......it's a simple bike without electronic everything and doesn't weigh a tonne with good luggage capacity.
Might not be the quickest but would be on the top of my list if I decided to ride round the world.

Re: Most Underrated

The most under rated bike in my opinion has to be the Super Tenere...it's cheaper than most of the competition,definitely more reliable than the competition,build quality second to none and is incredibly easy on ride 2 up.

Re: What did you all learn from your trips this year???

I learnt that 2 weeks away at a time is not enough and that I need to retire sooner rather than later somewhere in the Aude area of France.
