As Steve looked to change and develop his working life it occurred
to him that the Royal Enfield Motorcycle is a product he would be proud to be associated with as a
supplier and representative.
After a move to Shropshire from West London and 2 years research
and planning, Midlands Royal
Enfield opened its doors in December 2007 -
having now supplied nearly 150 machines to owners from Anglesey to Gloucester and was
awarded ‘’Dealer of the
Year’’ for 2009 by Royal Enfield UK.
Steve acquired his ‘Sportsman’ road machine (above left) in
2008 and Steve's original ‘Enfield’ is now the basis of a competition machine appearing at
track events as time permits. (above right)
‘Captain’ Johnnie Brown has been involved with
Midlands Royal Enfield for over three years, since becoming a customer with his first purchase
of a RE EFI Clubmans and later an EFI Trials machine.
JB has made a great deal of beneficial input to our business as well as lending considerable
expertise. JB was at one time a Motorcycle Paramedic for the West Midlands Ambulance
In one of those emergency calls JB was
involved in a drastic accident which has cost him the use of one leg. However, JB is not
one to let something like that get in his way and so he continues to ride and maintain
JB is known for fast and extensive rides across
Europe....only stopping for Fuel, Food and Sleep!!
Why is he a Captain?? Well for one thing he is a
licenced Pilot!! (hence a Captain of Aeroplanes)
JB is probably the most experienced Motorcyclist
at MRE and also delightful company!!
