King of the road
Chandni Chowk, Delhi, Jan 2012
The story behind the ‘title’ requires a bit of context. Royal Enfield, a British Legacy, is a cult brand of motorcycles in India and its owners are a proud bunch. I have fond memories of having bought my first Bike , a 350 cc beauty – the ThunderBird. Enfield ‘bullets’ are beautiful machine, and even today have a sizeable fan following. Not suited for commute and driving on the crowded roads of India means it is ignored by most people looking for something more practical but the real pleasure is in long drives (on hopefully better road conditions). I’ve had the pleasure of a few rides of my own (there is a link to one such video(warning: crappy quality) on my about page, if you want to check out).
This photo is my tribute to this Bike and its riders :)
