The "Geoff Duke" Royal Enfield Cafe Racer!


Submitted by the indispensable Dave Innola! For more on the very talented racer please see this ENTRY HERE. Great stuff!

Found this great photo of Mr. Duke in action “back in the day” on a Gilera at the Isle of Mann with the following caption:

Douglas, Isle of man: Geoff Duke, riding an Italian Gilera (493) round the bend at Governor’s Bridge during the Senior TT. Duke smashed all records to win his third Senior TT in 2-43-49 4/5 at an average speed of 97.93 MPH.

Royal Enfield Interceptor. My Favorite British Classic.


Out of all the great British classics my favorite hands down doesn’t come from Norton or Triumph or even Brough or Vincent. It’s the Royal Enfield Interceptor. I’ve never ridden one but in the looks department its the cream of the crop for me. The perfect balance of chrome, posture and line. For more on the bike check out the Motorcycle article HERE

More great shots from regular contributor Eric Stofer!

Eric Writes:

“A few shots from the annual bike swap meet in Tsawassen BC. About a dozen or so of us from the island, roaring down the highway to catch the 7am ferry to the show. Great day! Great swap meet and hundreds of bikes of all makes, original and customs. No breakdowns either! Kickstart bikes rule!”

YES they do!
