So, having learned never to buy an enfield in Delhi again, especially from a certain man named Dee Dee from Paharganj in the old bullet walla's headquarters, I have discovered one of, if not the best mechanic in all of India here in Pushkar.

A scant few thousand rupees later, my bike now has a new front rim (on which the front brakes actually work well, fitted with a knobby tire, fresh wheel bearings all round, new rocker arms (which were making some good noise when the bike would get hot, and the electronics all work perfectly.  Horn, signals, lights, high beam low beam, brake light, all is sound electrically now. 
Turns out that this certain guy in paharganj may talk a good line, and patch together these bikes so that they may make it far enough away before they blow out or blow up that he doesn't have to worry about it.
The Silver Bullet itself is looking good, and sounding even better, in fact, it is now running and driving better than any other of the numerous of these bikes I have owned or ridden.  It is perfect, so I shall make my escape from here after the weekend. 
Pushkar is one of those places, an oasis, where one can find peace, catch up on reading, and reflect on one's own self and soul.  Generally when you find such a place, you end up stuck for a while, especially if you have no certain agenda and like to go at a laid-back pace. 
There's a lot of sand out there still to cover, and I'd like to finally complete my  Rajastan loop, or at least most of it before spending a day or two in goa before storing my new machine.
Getting a little tired of trying to decipher what all the french people around me are saying as well.  I would rather be out in the countryside where at least, all things being equal, neither side can understand a word.
