Service back-up – we will have a mechanic travelling along with some basic Royal Enfield spare parts. If needed, parts may be replaced and the rider will be charged for the same. We will do our best to help with the bike, but each rider is responsible for bringing his or her bike home. Therefore, bike preparation is very important. Your local dealer can assist you in ensuring that your bike is up to the task.
As per the above, get your motorcycle serviced well in advance and do not wait for the last minute. At ground level the most important thing are the tyres, chains and sprockets. Ensure that you have adequate tread on your tyres and plenty of miles left with your chain and sprockets. We recommend you start the ride with a brand new set of tyres or at least 75-80% tread available.
Inspect and make sure that your bike has genuine OE parts. We cannot provide support for modified items and in such case you are requested to carry your own spares. We can make arrangements to carry them in the service vehicle.
1. Approved (Mandatory) Full face or modular styled helmets (Recommended).
2. Boots: preferably motorcycle riding boots or leather ankle boots.
3. Jacket: preferably motorcycle riding jacket with inbuilt body armour.
4. Pants: preferably motorcycle riding pants or denims with protective inserts
5. Riding Gloves : Well fitted protective motorcycle gloves
Each & every participant will need to paste on their bike and helmet the stickers given by Royal Enfield in the riders briefing
Rules and Regulations
We try to keep rules and regulations to the minimum unless when necessary for the harmony and safety of the individual or group. However we expect the few that we have, should be followed very strictly, failing which we may exclude that particular participant from the rest of the trip.
We will be travelling at the posted speed limit. If you are unable to keep up for any reason, don’t panic, you will be able to catch up at the next rest stop.
• Intoxication: we do not allow any form of intoxication when on the bike (drugs, alcohol, etc).
• Conduct: participants are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that shows respect to themselves and others around them i.e. other participants, support staff and locals of the region.
• Environmental responsibility: we must try and ensure that we maintain the sanctity of the region we are passing through. Remember that we will be travelling through bush fire affected regions, so we must be sensitive to the local inhabitants
• Medical advice: if you are under medical treatment we expect you to follow the medical advice very strictly.
This has more to do with your mental attitude than your riding skill, this is not a race but neither do we have unlimited time on our hands. The ride is structured so as to allow you ample time to enjoy the beauty of the areas that we will be travelling through, while at a pace according to your comfort. You are absolutely free to choose your own riding style, buddies and pace, so long as local road laws are not broken and there is no threat to any other person, animal or machine.
The only time we expect you to ride in close formation is while entering and leaving a town so that no one gets lost. This shall be in a tight but staggered formation. This serves to guide the group on an intended path in a safe and cohesive manner. The riding signals will be covered in the rider’s meeting and main signals will be reviewed before departure.
Please note that the group cannot keep stopping for those that may need to take a bathroom break, refuel or the like. You will get the opportunity to catch up at the next rest stop.
