I know this is supposed to be an India travel blog, and it’s turning into a shrine to the Royal Enfield, but look at this stuff!! What am I supposed to do? Ignore it?

Leader Of The Pack

Nearly a hundred bikes and more riders were lined up at the meeting point along the side of a very long onramp to what is called the “NICE” road here. It is in fact a very nice road, but in this case NICE is just an acronym for “Nandi Infranstructure Corridor Enterprises.” India loves a good acronym :)

Gautam’s ride (but his brother Gaurav’s bike) was stationed at the front of the queue, ready to lead us out. What this photo does not show is that the local police showed up, quite angry at the sight of so many bikes lined up on the ramp, with no license to do so. He was animated as can be, very grumpy indeed, and Gautam was busy doing his best to calm the man down…

This is the toolbox mounted on the side of a lovely old Bullet. If you look in the upper left and right corners you can see my reflection – :)

Gautam, with his wife Venetia, leads the Road Veda cycle team, a group of serious Enfield enthusiasts based in Bangalore. This shot was taken yesterday morning in Kutta, near Coorg, before we made the astonishingly beautiful 240km journey back home to the city.

This lovely old Bull belongs to Venetia and Gautam from Road Veda. The stripes were done by Gautam himself :)
