Default Royal Enfield tours / clubs?

I've only just got my Royal Enfield 350, but I'm enjoying it immensely.

Twice I came across a group of Bullets going the other way. Both on Sundays. Is there a group of bullet riders that gets together in the Delhi/Gurgaon area to tour on a regular basis?

Thanks

Jeroen

Hi Jeroen!

In Delhi there's Royal Beasts, Bulls on Parade and Free Soul Riders (I don't think it's an exclusive bullet club, more like a bike club irrespective of the make). These are the only three that I know of. Though I've never ridden with them so I obviously have no experience with them. Just heard about them through some mutual friends. Royal beasts had organized the 2012 rider mania in New Delhi. You can look up all these clubs on facebook.

Hope it helps!

Then there's 60kph.com, a small but exclusive group of comparatively senior members: http://www.60kph.com/concept/about.htm.

Guess Bangalore has RTMC (Should be Royal Thunder Motorcycle Club).
But am sure there are much more than this one.

RTMC is the Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club. There is the Royal Knights also based in Bangalore IIRC.

If you are looking to join RTMC - you can join the newbie list on http://autos.dir.groups.yahoo.com/gr...&sec=dir&slk=3

And once you have done 2 rides with them in the space of 3 months, you can become a member. There is no joining fees - no hassling. Ride with them and check it out

Thanks for the clarity Naveen was not sure if the R stood for Royal or Rolling

Hi Jeroen,

I'm a fairly new rider, been riding an old beat-up silver Enfield Thunderbird for about three months now.

A good friend of mine is the guy behind the Delhi Bikers Breakfast Run (DBBR for short), an open all-inclusive ride on winter weekends.

I also joined a group called Guns Motorcycling, another friendly and inclusive group - no membership fee or ego or anything like that. They're very active on Facebook, just do a quick seach and they should pop up. I went with them on my first-ever group ride. They ride very safely in traffic, use signs, communicate well, and look out for new / inexperienced riders like myself, which I really appreciated. They also have no ego re: your ride. While predominantly Bullets and Enfields, they also have two Ninjas, a couple of Pulsars, and a CBR250. So no engine-dick-size-measuring contests among them, if you love riding they'll welcome you happily.

If you'd like more information, just drop me a PM. Maybe we'll meet at the next ride, if so, say hi
