We’ve been busy. The Royal
Enfield Interceptor 650 went for its first service or check-up at
546km or so. Once it was back from the service, we’ve been using it on a daily
basis in Pune’s hideous weekend traffic, racing squids on 390s and fetching a
lot of groceries (with a bag of course).
Since I was fresh off a track
test (where I won the award for the slowest lap time ever), I even managed to
give the bike its first taste of the rev-limiter.
The Ed called me asking how the bike was doing and what I’d be using it
for. Very responsibly, I said “I’m not happy with the way I ride. I’m getting
fit and using the Interceptor to ride better”. In reality I’m just ripping the
650 on every other straightway and hogging Tacos from Taco Bell. The weather in
Pune is much more pleasant which leaves us craving for long rides. Maybe the
next step is a set of accessories.
