if yer talkin' about the new(india/repro) ones they sure do look cool, but that's about it. unless ya live in a little country type town or a big city/college town where ya only need to ride a few blocks at a time to the local bar or club.
they are fine for around town cruisin' but if ya ever need to get on any sorta highway they're kinda scary. on a normal bike if a car follows to close or drives like a dumb-ass you can put the hammer down and get away. not so much with the new enfield. that's why my buddy just unloaded his.
if yer talkin' about the original(pre '53) i really have no info on those except what i've read in stuff like walnecks and the like, so i cannot comment on those.
