@ Ram I do have some ideas about how that guard can be incorporated into a panier. Will share details of project panier once I get started !!

@ArizonaJim thanks for the link. For some reason I never found the green army Enfields attractive. But with the superior paint and detailing I suppose the 500 has garnered a big fan following in the US

the 500 is delivered with the pillion seat and the saree guard. I would like to get rid of the guard too but will have to replace it with a frame like what you have on the opposite side

Congratulations and best wishes, DKG. RE CL 500 in black is really cute. No doubt, it commands 8 months of waiting in Bangalore as compared to 4 - 6 months for other colours including Desert Storm. Originally, we had almost decided in favour of Desert Storm. After seeing the photographs of your black beauty, we may change our decision in favour of black notwithstanding two more months' waiting.

My personal view after seeing all the colours is black looks beautiful on the 500, especially since the pain quality is really very nice and does justice to black when maintained well

So Ravi Sir, would we see another travelogue about your Leh-Ladakh trip aboard your new Enfield 350. You are indeed a bundle of energy and would this bike be for your primary usage of part of the extended family?

Thanks, ku69rd. Actually, the bike is for my son! Yesterday, he booked Desert Storm, as we wanted the bike asap.

I have already informed my family that I would be going solo to Leh in RE DS. I narrowly missed Southern Odyssey organised by RE during 11 - 23 December 2011.
