The Royal Enfield Tour of Bhutan was flagged off from Siliguri early morning on the 5th of May, 2012. Over 30 riders on their Royal Enfield motorcycles were flagged off amidst much fanfare as they rode out into the eastern Himalayas. The Darjeeling Enfielders, a local Royal Enfield enthusiasts club turned up in strength to show their solidarity towards fellow Royal Enfield riders.
The riders shall be riding out from Siliguri to Mirik, and further into Darjeeling and shall be crossing over into Sikkim tomorrow with their first halt at Pelling. The weather in the hills was found to be quite pleasant with summer now slowly setting into the Indian Sub Continent. The Tour is led by experienced riders from Royal Enfield who shall also guide the other riders about the tricks of riding across such challenging terrain.
