Himalaya Royal Enfield Tour 2016
« on: March 17, 2014, 12:53:36 pm »
For those who feel like a once-in-a-lifetime trip over the highest motorable passes in the world, Thruxton Motorcycles and Cape Town Royal Enfield will be doing a trip to India again this year (third year in a row). This trip is the rite of passage for any off-road enthusiast, and a must do for anyone who want to see how high and crazy the roads up in the Himalayas can be.

The trip is for 10 days and leaves around the 27th of June 2016.

Are the departure dates fixed yet.  Would be a great trip but it leaves two weeks too early  for me.

I spent 6 months riding my enfield all over India... some of the best adventures I have had so far!! A bucket list top 10 for any DS fan :ricky: :ricky:
Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.
