Where Heaven and Earth Meet!

The Royal Enfield Tour of Nepal is a motorcycle adventure for Royal Enfield owners that flags off in Lucknow, India and crosses the border into Nepal.

PREPARING YOUR RIDE

Get your ride ready for the two week journey across Nepal.

Preparing your Motorcycle
  • Get your motorcycle serviced well in advance. Do not wait to get it done at the the last minute.
  • At ground level, the most important things are the tyres and the wheels. Ensure that you have adequate tread on them. We recommend you start the ride with a brand new set of tubes; you are less likely to face punctures. Additionally, get the rims trued as an out-of-shape rim will affect handling.
  • Inspect and make sure that your motorcycle has genuine Royal Enfield parts, especially hubs, spokes, rims and other engine components. 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 back-up vehicle.
  • Check the rear swing-arm bush for play and replace if needed.
  • Check the condition of front fork oil seals and replace if needed.
  • Check your chain and rear sprocket for wear. If you find that there are less than four notch adjustments or broken teeth, replace your chain and both your sprockets.
  • Your motorcycle’s clutch is really crucial for this trip, so make sure that it is in good order and adjusted properly. When you open your clutch cover, also check the primary chain and the adjuster. Do not use any kind of additional insert under the chain adjuster. If the adjuster has reached its limit, replace the primary chain.
  • Check the battery and the earthing connections. If you have any history of electrical trouble, be sure that the problem is completely solved.
  • Check for play in the steering column and replace the ball race bearing if necessary.
  • Check all the rubber components like carburettor manifold, fuel lines, air filter manifold etc. for cracks and tears, and replace if in doubt.
  • Check all cables and if found bent or frayed, replace immediately.
  • Finally tighten all the nuts and bolts and if it is found to slip or if the threads are damaged, replace the relevant parts.
gearing up
  • Helmet: Choose a good quality full face helmet which protects you from impact and shelters your head from the elements. A lightweight well-fitting helmet which provides proper ventilation is vital for the success of this ride.

  • Boots:Purpose-built protective boots are a must for long rides. Toe, heel, ankle and shin protectors work with a soft foot-bed and flexing zones to offer you optimum protection from rock and road. Attention to sizing is a must, because you may want a slightly roomy fit without making the boots too tight.

  • Riding Jackets:When selecting the right jacket for the ride, look for one that offers good protection from impact and abrasion. Also, some jackets come with built-in detachable thermal layers, while others have only the protective outer shell and give you the liberty of using your own winter wear. Whichever your choice may be, make sure you have armour in the shoulders, elbows, and back for protection from impact; and abrasion-resistant outer shell to protect you in case of a slide; and enough warm layers to keep you cozy in the cold.

  • Gloves: Well-fitting, full length gloves are a must for this ride. They will protect and provide better grip, give you more control of the motorcycle and keep your hands fatigue-free. Impact protection for your knuckles and finger joints, abrasion resistant padded material for your palms, and a closure system for a secure fit work best together to keep your hands protected.

  • Riding Pants: Select purpose-built protective pants which can withstand the rigour of a long ride and still remain comfortable enough to be worn for multiple days. Look for a pair with protection in the knees, a tough outer shell; and depending on your preference, go for one with built-in layers or combine your own winter gear with an armoured outer shell. Go for a size that should fit you well with all the layers inside. A fastening system at the bottom helps to keep the cold out.

  • Luggage Solutions:To be at ease on long rides, pick a purpose-built luggage solution which has space to store all your essentials and is water-repellent. Saddlebags, tank bags and tail/duffle bags are the most common and best suited for this purpose. The bag should have easy access to all pockets for efficient organisation of your things. Also, make sure that the bag has tight buckles and closure systems, so that your gear remains secure.

GEARING UP

Your safety and comfort on this ride depends on getting the right gear.

RULES AND REGULATIONS

Rules of the road.

Rules and Regulations

We try to keep rules and regulations to a minimum unless when necessary for the harmony and safety of the individual or group. However we expect the few that we have, to be followed very strictly, failing which we may exclude that particular participant from the rest of the trip.

Rules
  • Intoxication:

    We do not allow any form of intoxication while on the motorcycle during the ride.

  • Conduct:

    Participants are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that preserves their dignity and that of others around them, including 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.

  • Medical Advice:

    If you are under medical treatment, we expect you to follow the medical advice very strictly. We also strongly recommend participants to carry warm clothing as well as warm liners on the ride as it may get cold during and after the ride.

Luggage
  • A vehicle is arranged to carry your luggage, and it will be carried at the owner’s risk. Each rider is allowed to place one bag with maximum permissible limit of 15Kgs. Each rider must ensure that their luggage is loaded and unloaded every day.

  • Satellite luggage (to be carried on the motorcycle at all times)

  • The support vehicle is the last vehicle to start and last vehicle to reach, hence there might be a delay in participants being able to access their luggage after reaching a destination. Also, it can be tiresome to wait for the service vehicle for something as basic as a tube. Hence your satellite luggage carried on the motorcycle should consist of:

    1. Change of clothes
    2. One pair of footwear
    3. Set of tubes
    4. Spark plug
    5. Throttle & clutch cable
    6. OEM toolkit

Service
  • Service Back-Up – we will have a mechanic travelling along with some basic spares. If needed, parts may be replaced and the rider will be charged for the same. We will do our best to help with the motorcycle, but each rider is responsible for bringing their motorcycle home. Therefore, motorcycle preparation is very crucial and the scrutiny will be thorough. We will guide you in both.

Where Heaven and Earth meet!

This April, get ready to undertake a ride through a land wedged between the high walls of the mighty Himalayas and the lush jungles of Indian plains. A land of snow peaks and sherpas, Yaks and Yeti legends, monasteries and mantras, Nepal will mesmerize you with its eternal beauty while you ride through the twisting roads and scenic landscapes feeling the connection between you and your Royal Enfield.

Being called the cultural heart of the Himalayas, Nepal offers an unrivalled collection of world-class palaces, hidden backstreet shrines and sublime temple art. You can learn a lot about everything starting from Tibetan Buddhism to how to prepare the best momos (dumplings), making the ride full of concealed secrets at every turn.

MEET THE TEAM

Jitin Kanwar

Born in an army family, Jitin has been hopping from one city to another since his childhood and was always fascinated by the Army edition of Royal Enfields. This is when his love for travel and motorcycling originated which amplified when he made his first trip to Leh on a Classic 500. Since then he has been travelling across the country for new experiences. He completed his Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering and worked in different fields before going back to do what he loved and co-founded a travel startup- traversing across Northern India while hosting groups of travelers. Apart from travelling, Jitin is a big time movie buff and never misses an opportunity to grab the first day first show.

RAJAT GANDHI

Rajat Gandhi has always been great at working with people. He started his career in HR, went on to co-found a startup that took him to various cities across the world, with a bunch of schoolchildren and has now come back to his first love – motorcycles at Royal Enfield. As a natural storyteller and foodie, he is a terrific travel companion, and as a party animal he brings a six pack of energy to any event! Apart from being a die-hard rider, Rajat is also a marathoner and an avid cyclist. He has ridden Manali to Leh solo on his mtb cycle. Having lived all over India – Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Bangalore, Pune, Chandigarh he now lives in Chennai with his husky – Ghost.
