I spent the whole morning anticipating how the next few hours would change the rest of my life. At about 10AM, my dad and I left for the Royal Enfield showroom (Bangalore,India) to pick up the motorcycle we had booked and paid for.
By the time all the paperwork had to been completed, it was about 12’o clock and that was when I caught a glimpse of my to be means of freedom.
We fired up the engine and heard her come to life for the first time. It wasn’t loud and disturbing as the some of the older RE motorcycles. It wasn’t as a deep rumble either but rather a mild throaty sound.
Unfortunately I didn’t get to ride it back as I didn’t have my driver’s license yet. I remember how I was terrified as we navigated our way through heavy traffic and pathetic roads. Once we got home, I knew for certain that a whole new perspective of life was just waiting to be discovered on that single cylinder 350cc classic motorcycle.
