Also back when i was getting some of this paperwork done, i found that my Royal Enfield motorcycle would not make it past the Turkish border into Europe because it used asbestos based stuff in the bike which was banned there. I am thinking the US will be a lot more stricter than Turkey!

Besides, it is just a machine at the end of the day! If I was going to live there for a bit, and in the southern states where one can ride for more than just a couple of months, I would buy a Bullet locally. Better dealer support, and better build. Also a 500 is better suited to the average speeds to be held on even the back roads there. Being more than 15% faster or slower than the traffic stream is equally hazardous, and the 350 would struggle.

From experience, by having someone you know and trust, use it regularly. Machines do not like being left in a preserved condition. I did it once for 6 months with my Yezdi a long time ago, and regretted it bitterly.

I totally understand my friend. I have done it to my (my father's 76 Yezdi) and still regret it. Hence, want to play safe with the Bullet. I think using it regularly is the only best alternative.

Lol, what did you do?! Mine broke a piston ring when I restarted it, and the pieces fell into the crankcase. And the bike was just a year old, my first one!
