I am not a motor cyclist but I do appreciate them, especially the older models, so I am really sorry to see them go to the wall.

Growing up I can remember my older brother had two Norton Dominators, one in pieces and one he rode to work. I can remember pestering him for ages, I must have been around eight years old, for a ride on the pillion. Mum, of course forbade it, which made it all the more exciting when it actually happened however I wish I hadn't nagged him so much because, when it did actually happen ,I was petrified and couldn't wait for him to turn for home! He admitted to me years later he deliberately went fast so as to put me off asking again!

I agree that this is probably a name that will live on in some form or another. Perhaps not in this country but somewhere. In Thailand it is very common to see motorbikes with the Royal Enfield name on them. You also still see Habitat shops so it is difficult to kill off a good name.
