The oldest Motercycle brand in the world, and the most iconic bike to be in production for nearly 70 years the Bullet. Like
the tag line goes, Made Like A Gun, Goes Like A Bullet, true to their tagline, Royal Enfield Bikes are known for their robust
build that is suitable for both on and off-road rides. To say that Bullet is a bike, is to say Sir Isaac Newton discovered gravity, it

When you traverse across the length and breadth of the world’s largest democracy, seldom do you find people who do not know

ever I take a break for refreshments, there has been at least one enquiry about my travel, and the bike and most of the times
the people would try to offer some help. That’s something truly extraordinary, considering the fact that I’m a total stranger to
