    Royal Enfield Bullet-The Indian Cult ?

    Royal Enfield Bullet-The Indian Cult ? Find out !!

    Royal Beasts

    Thursday, June 24, 2010

    You can love them or hate them, but you just can’t ignore them! Started on April 6, 2002, by two friends, Kartik Krishnan and Ajeet Hundal, with an aim to forming an exclusive club of Bullet enthusiasts, the RoyalBeasts have today grown to a huge 202 members. 
    In fact, so rapid has their growth been that within one-and-a-half years they have became the third largest group in India. Yes, RoyalBeasts is part of a nationwide phenomenon of Enfield bikers coming together to enjoy their bikes. Similar Enfield bikers’ groups are running in cities like Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai and even Aizawl.

    And, if you think that RoyalBeasts would essentially be young-dudes-showing-off-their-muscles-kind of people... think again! The group boasts of a presence of the fairer sex, albeit in a very small number. Talk to the youngest member of the group and you know that biking is no longer a male thing... 18-year-old Mahima Nijhowne, owns a Royal Enfield, and joined RoyalBeasts the day she turned 18. Ask her about the reaction she gets from fellow motorists on roads, she says, “I get a lot of thumbs-up signs from people. Sometimes they clap or smile or just look at me in amazement.” Does she face uncomfortable moments? She says, “Not really. But then, who would mess with a girl riding on a Royal Enfield?”

    The other Royal Enfield gals include 28-year-old Ellinor Nordstron from Sweden, who works in a call centre in Gurgaon. She joined RoyalBeasts a couple of months back. She says, “I recently went on a ride with the group to Sattal. Being on a Royal Enfield away from the city gave me an amazing sense of freedom.”

    As for the hunks in the group, they have terrific tales to narrate too. Says Kartik Krishnan, who incidentally owns four (believe it or not!) Royal Enfield bikes, “We’ve been to all kinds of places on our bikes, and I’ve broken almost every bone in my body!” Adds Sachin Chavan, an automobile journalist, “Last time we went to Ladakh, we had to cross this stretch which was very close to the China border. It was a dirt track and we had no map to help us navigate. That was a real tough one.” The group goes on two big rides every year, one to Ladakh in summers and to Goa in January. Besides, the group organises short trips to Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, etc. When in town, the group meets every Sunday evening at Qutab Institutional Area, opposite the Fore School of Management.

    Take a look at them and you know that this is a wide variety of people brought together by one passion, Royal Enfield. There are doctors, lawyers, students, marketing guys, journalists, entrepreneurs... and many others, who are part of this group. Says Sachin Chavan, “There’s this unbelievable camaraderie amongst us. We are together because of our love for bikes, and we are willing to go that extra mile to enjoy the ride.”

    So, if you’ve always wanted to don your leather pants, leather jacket and leather shoes, and ride ‘peacefully’ into the sunset on your Royal Enfield... ride into the RoyalBeasts. There’s no entry fee, no joining procedures... all you need is a ‘thumping’ love for the Royal Enfield! Happy cruising!
