A Royal Enfield Owners Club in the wilderness years!
Royal Enfield Owners Club of the UK today. They started publishing a newsletter called The Gun. To their surprise, they received a letter from Larry Graham from Hunt, Texas, signed "President" of a Royal Enfield Owners Club existing in the US! There is very little information out there about that club, or during which years it operated. Larry Graham had a Kawasaki/Suzuki dealership in Kerrville, Texas and also ran a youth camp in Hunt, which still exists and lists him as "director emeritus". I tried contacting him but got no reply. In his day he owned a Constellation based Chief and also a Madras Bullet "one of six in the US" at the time, according to an article in The Gun by Tim Elbourn chronicling a trip from New York to Texas on a Series II interceptor he took in the early 1980's.
