Bought a Harley - the girls/fag sized one

A 2006 XL883L. Nice done up in black.

My wife is appalled. I didn't tell her of course.

Harley's are fag-bikes, rich-fag-bikes.

Triumph or nothing for me!

If it's good enough for my man Jan Akkerman, it's good enough for me.

There's no such thing as an International Driving License (lawfully). There is an International Driving Permit but that won't get you a Singapore DL. You need to convert a 'real' DL to a Singapore one and you need to do it within a year of being here.

I know a guy with an Enfield that's for sale. Souped up as well.

well i have the 'real' DL. I was under the impression that I had to get the Intl driving permit first before I apply for conversion.
Also this means I need to apply before this coming may :-|

If you want to bring a Enfield Bullet to Singapore, you might have a problem as bikes over three years old won't be allowed in. Any newer bikes will still have to meet Singapore's Emission Controls guidelines.

Anyway, the Bullet is only what? A 350cc Single? I love the 1950's styling of them. Brazil did the same thing, buying all the molds, dies and machinery for the VW Beetle and manufactured new VDubs for a number of years after Germany quite producing them.

I don't want to import it from India to Singpore. united motors SG sell enfields, however I want to buy a 2nd hand one from someone local here.
well there is the 350cc single that i like , then there is the 500c that i like as well but it all depends on my rather thin finances at the moment
saving up for it big time though
