    Life in the slow lane

    Put my name down for one of these very limited (500 Olive Drab ones made) Royal Enfield Pegasus 500 singles. Was overjoyed when I found out I had one reserved. Especially when I heard the Indian market of 250 units, sold out in 27 seconds on the web. Got to pick it up today, and ride it back...

    Headlight replacement question

    I have them fitted to my ride here in Aus, where our wildlife at night take great pleasure in trying to be your pillion. They are great, very happy with them. Make sure you spend the extra $$$ to get the LED marker lights as well, to keep the color of your headlight looking the same .
