I had a good look round the Enfield 650 when last in Aberdeen. Very well made and as you said, very good VFM.

I had a deposit down on one but decided to pull the plug on it. It's built to a budget and that's what you are getting, a budget bike.

As for the show, my word it's so much dumbed down nowadays, so much quieter than it ever used to be. It may be corona, it may have been cause the rugby was on but it seemed a lot quieter today than I can remember in the past. I did however get a bargain, £60 off any internet price I've seen for a jacket so it was a result for me.

Loved these in my youth, the fabulous and iconic Yamaha FS1-E

Only had a PC50, but then got the Fizzies big brother a YB100. The YB100 is fairly rare as its engine fits into the Fizzy. Certainly didn't see one at the show on Saturday, and I wouldn't be wanting to ride mine down from Aberdeen!

My first two wheeler was the FS1E DX (NAM 176R) :D I was always getting stopped by the old bill as I took my test on it and often had a pillion. Aah, happy days.
