Another Royal Enfield… Bullet 500

I am just extremely tired of 4 days of learning Trauma Facilitating.  I want to drop nearly dead into my bed in just about an hour or so.

I have missed you so I just want to quickly post another Bike Blog…  When we were on the Word Riders Tour, I came across this old Royal Enfield Bullet bike at Sedgefield Classic Cars.
