    Some deride the Enfield but Noraly, she of Itchy Boots fame, got good service from hers. Certainly no worse than her Hondas. From memory mainly a clutch failure on the Enfield, as opposed to a broken subframe on the 230 Honda and a fork seal and steering head bearings on her 300.

    Out of my field of interest, possibly as I don't have the free time with young-uns to take more long weekends or tours than I do to find out of overweight dirtbikes are a thing, all seem to gravitate to DRs if they are doing more serious stuff than their other adventure bikes are suited to.

    Heck one is thinking of replacing his 690katieoom for some reason.

    Himalayan is 60kg heavier and 10hp less with horrid suspension.

    Easy to pick up and ride like an old skool dirtbike. Also very reliable.

    690 is an interesting bike but they wont fix the wide gearbox spacing.

    I understand the 690 fuel filler is underneath where you mount luggage on the flanks. Adventure riders obsess over fuel capacity, presumably with good reason.

    If everyone in the group is riding the same bike spares provisioning is rationalised. lordy, starting to sound like a ILS zealot .

    You can get 220-240km out of a 690, but the seat will make you stop before you run out of gas.

    How can it POSSIBLY be that much heavier? Is the RE made of depleted Uranium and steam pipe? with rims made of lead?

    I helped a mate move house and moved his small collection of CZ or Jawa, probably doesn't matter.

    I eventually concluded that motorcycle manufacture must have been considered a means of undermining the Capitalist pig dogs by somehow sinking their countries by exporting the highest mass of shit metal possible.

    Ironically CZ ( the more I think they were) had a history of effective competition dirtbikes to showcase communist superiority. Can't imagine they were that heavy.

    So , RE: what have the Indians got against us? I mean apart from the horrors of oppressive colonial rule and theft of zillions of dollars of resources and labour. . .

    When you use a poorer quality metal you make it up with tube gauge.
    Zetor tractors used to use thicker casting as they were a bit crude in casting tech and it was less likely to be porous.
    it worked up to a point, but they used to paint the insides of the castings to ensure oil tightness.
    I cant remember exactly but they were at least 1/2 -1 ton heaver then a EQ western tractors
    in a lot of cases you are paying for tech not raw materials

    Maybe if she had a cr500 or TDR250 or a New Holland 120+hp tractor with a front PTO and a ti exhaust.....
    she does seem like a nice chick though.
