The Lady Drives VI

Continuing with the brochure produced by Royal Enfield in 1915 we turn to the sixth featured rider:

"Motor Cycling as a Sport is simply grand" Mrs. M. A. Whayman, Heathwood Gardens, Charlton, S.E., writes on November 30th, 1914:-

"The Royal Enfield Side-car Combination shown in the photograph is a 1913 model, but I have now changed it for a later model-a 1914. I can say that your 6-h.p. Side-car Combination is very easy to handle, both in traffic and at speed, when necessary, in the country. I have driven many thousands of miles, and have never had the slightest trouble, only the usual punctures.

"In conclusion, I must really add that, sitting astride a 6-h.p. Royal Enfield, motor cycling as a sport is simply grand, and I should not like to be deprived of my machine."

Note that Mrs. Whayman has never had the slightest trouble. Being so reliable, the Royal Enfield is essentially the Side-car Combination for the lady driver.
