Default Rider Mania 2014

Staring a thread for Rider mania for the benefit of all the Enfield riders here .Most of you may be already clued in on the same but some intro about it for those of you who are wondering what this is all about .

Come January 2014 all the Enfield riders riders are set to pack bags and ride down to chennai to be a part of the 12th edition of Rider Mania an annual jamboree of Enfiled riders and clubs in the world .The event has been traveling through the country and this year is being hosted by the madras-bulls from Chennai .

Rider mania is a non-profit community building event being run for the past 11 years and is currently owned by BOBMC (Brotherhood of bulleteers motorcycling consortium) BOBMC is a common forum to bring together all the Enfield riding Clubs in the world and has over 70 Enfiled riding clubs under its umbrella . BOBMC aims to increase inter-club interaction and help each other building camaraderie among motorcyclists especially Enfield riders.

Rider mania is run by volunteers from the clubs who put in enormous effort in making the event a grand success.In fact the success has been so significant that has triggered many parallel "wanna be that" .Rider mania has till now travelled across the length and breadth of the country including the North east .

The event would be held on the 18th and 19th of january 2014 and would welcome all Enfiled riders and enfiled riding clubs .Expected to draw over 1200 riders this year from all parts of the world this is definitely an event any enfiled rider would not wnat to miss .Earlybird registrations will open on the 25th of september .More details are on www.bobmcridermania.com or the facebook page https://www.facebook.com/BOBMCRM

Thanks

Thanks for the information Voyager. Have been hearing about Ridermania from various sources and finally a detailed intro right here on Team-BHP. Would be looking eagerly on the updates.

Though I do not belong to any of the bullet clubs and I do not participate actively in these drives, as the multi day drives usually end at the hotel bar and I for one do not fit into that set. And on one such rides a few years back, I was almost alone for the couple of nights we stayed, except for the few who preferred to return with a couple of shots. That was the last time I went for a group drive with an overnight stay.

But I am surely looking forward to participate in Rider Mania 2014(provided my calender doesn't have any clashes) since this event is at chennai and probably I can return home when the rest move towards water.

Hi Vtec ,

Please do not be misled .The rider-mania you are referring to is the wanna be rider mania which RE tries to run parallel to the original club event as the club event has gotten so popular now . The community event is a volunteer run event and is run on a no-profit basis and is a total residential event for two days the details are on www.bobmcridermania.com . this event is run by the community, for the community and is not affiliated to the manufacturer .70 different clubs form the BOBMC (Brotherhood of bulleteers motorcyling community) and participate in this rotating event .

Please look up on www.bobmcridermania.com to understand the full history and how it all started and where all it has been.

Thanks

Prashanth

Hi,

Has anyone been a part of the previous held Rider Mania ? If so, How was the experience? Being Chennai as my Home Town, should you folks suggest to try it ? What say ?

Do we have an On the Spot registration on the proposed dates ? Did we have it the last time it was conducted ?

By any chance, can I stay at my home and then drive in to the place without any registration being done ? Do they allow us to at least view the event for some good photography sessions ?

I know its a lots question, but still would definitely clear the doubt not just for me; I suppose : ) Thanks.

Rgs,
VTV

Its one of its kind event in India & its all about Royal Enfield bike & bikers. Its one amazing event and don't think any enfield enthusiast should miss it.

Yes, there were on the spot registration on the previous RMs but its always subject to availability. Looking at the response, i doubt if its possible this time. I guess there were more than 400 registrations just in initial 2 days. better you register now as even if you get last minute entry, cost will be too high.

As far as i know, no one allowed to enter with any other vehicle than an Royal Enfield bike. For the phography session, you can check with the mods at BOBMC. http://bobmcridermania.com/about/join-bobmc/

Hope it helped.

Real one's, if those a couple of years were to say so, allowed all Enthusiasts. You may just have to park your car or bike not with bullets, simple as that. Few fellows stayed outside & rode in without registering because of their leave issues. If the current one is for RE riders alone, i feel sorry for the 'real' tag.
