RE THT Service Camp

RE Service Camp with The Himalayan Tribe

THT has been my man-Friday for anything related to my Yeti, the Himalayan. Two weeks ago, THT and Royal Enfield met up at Borivali Service Center for a training camp. Unfortunately I missed that.  During the question answer session, the discussion turned to issues everyone faces.

Taking a stone from the rock solid guys who were there, RE worked out details and collaborated with THT for a service camp. The date was 5th of Feb, 2017. And I had my clock (more…)

Yeti with Pillion, pictures for the Trip Trailer and Trip Movie

Trip Trailer launched of our recent breakfast ride

I am happy to share with you the launch of our Trip Trailer, which will be followed by a short movie. Of course this sounds like we are into serious business, but trust me we are not! It is just a fun trip trailer and a fun trip movie created just to feel different.

Okay, so I was writing a post about lack of an opportunity to do a weekend or a breakfast trip. It is in the drafts. Thankfully, I do not have to post it now! 🙂

So it all happened in a jiffy and a ride on Saturday morning was planned to Igatpuri. While we were sure we could make that trip, what we hoped is if we could extend the trip to Bhandardhara. It is a very scenic place near the village of Shendi and also home to the highest peak in Maharashtra (more…)

Royal Enfield Himalayan

Yeti. The Himalayan beast in my life

Yeti is what I named him. Many preferred to call it a goat, a Himalayan Goat. But for me, it never looked like one. It always looked like the beast. Untamed, but well mannered and imposing.

My friends who knew about this decision kept on asking me on the status, adding salt to the burn. On 16th of Aug., 2016 he arrived. I got to see first glimpse of Royal Enfield Himalayan, reserved in my name at the show room. (more…)

Bajaj Boxer 150 Café Racer?

Bajaj Boxer is a name that you casually associate with something that is rugged, but not to Indian taste while it is powerful but never a success. But I was intrigued when I first saw the pictures of Bajaj Boxer 150 Café Racer.

Remember we saw the Hero Splendor Pro Classic Café Racer in the 2014 Auto Expo, which was also launched in the market to a lukewarm response. This was not where it all started though. The beautiful Continental GT from Royal Enfield was where it all started and suddenly everyone in India started to Bing! (siuya, scroogle) about Café Racers.

Then today I was looking around the net for the new Pulsar RS200, I came across this surprise. A Boxer 150 CafĂ© Racer! The first look at it and I said “wow” I didn’t know that. (more…)
