Royal Enfield’s Safari Touring Jacket & Nimbus Helmet Review

Dusshera Celebrations turned extra special this year, thanks to Royal Enfield, who sent over some #REUrbanGear goodies for us. We were jumping around in joy as we went about opening each of the boxes like giddy kids. In-fact our happiness was heard well around the residential complex by the time we’d unboxed every one of…

Motorcycle Talk: Tools to bring along For the Ride

My tool-kit journey, like most of you here, started out with the OEM kit that’s provided with every bike. But that quickly proved inadequate on my 250-300 km rides. Back then, I had a few loose spanners at home and took to carrying them along as well when venturing beyond the city. These rudimentary attempts…

HauryaBikers’ Breakfast Ride to Hotel Ahura

The Urge to get back on the road begins within 2-4 days of returning from the previous one. Maintaining the delicate balance between funding those rides and being a useful contributor to family & friends though sometimes stretches this wait for longer. Something similar had happened in the month past. Bidding adieu to the Bappa’…

Philips Car Air Purifiers– the best that you can breathe

Congestion on the streets has led to our cities being continuously grid-locked. With mass-transit systems still some time away, there’s no respite against the polluted air from making its way into our lungs. Even with the windows rolled up and the air-conditioning going strong, things are mighty harmful for us. Philips India’s ‘GoPure’ range of…

Trying out Castrol’s POWER1 CRUISE Engine Oil

Friction and heat are our twin enemies, robbing the engine of performance, and jeopardizing our trips in terms of reliability. The engine oil we use in our bikes, should not only give us superior power and performance, but do this for the extended period of time that we usually end up riding. This is why,…

Handy guide to transporting your bike through VRL Logistics

A much-anticipated trip into the mountains sparked off our search for a reliable transporter, who’d take our precious bikes from Bombay to Chandigarh. But which vendor, or which commercial shipper – that caused a lot of confusion. As our bike was still at the workshop, getting a few things looked into, we decided to go…

Royal Enfield’s Riding Jackets: there’s one for every reason and season

From the Cast Iron Electra and the UCE Thunderbird, the Continental GT and now the Himalayan, Royal Enfield’s motorcycles are an unexplainable attraction. The thing that I deeply respect them for, is the way the company balances the needs of the present, while staying true to their illustrious British origins and classic motorcycling lineage. Royal…

Monsoon skies: Mumbai

Mumbai grows a few shades more beautiful each monsoon. Sure, our hardships increase too, but there’s no denying the fact that we also get that rare break from the drab grays which dominate the view.  Couldn’t help but stop & stare at this beautiful sight as I was crossing the bridge. The colourful skies and…

खिडकीतली बाग

अम्मा म्हणायची की त्या लहानपणीच्या गावच्या ट्रिपांमध्ये होती सुरूवात! पण खरंतर लालमातीचं वेड कधी मनात बसलं, कधी रक्तात घुसलं हे कळलच नाही. वर्षे गेली, पण शोध काही संपेना. बघता बघता, तेच वेड जणू काही घुसलं कुंडीत! कोकणातल्या बागेचं स्वप्न मात्र जवळ येऊन सुद्धा हुलकावण्या देत राहिलं. निराशेने मन भरलं आणि आयुष्याच्या अनेक झुंझीत गेलं ते…

Celebrating #OneRide 2017 – the #HauryaBikers way

The first Sunday of April is reserved on the calendar as #OneRide Day. This year marked the Seventh Edition of celebrating the camaraderie that comes from owning and riding a Royal Enfield motorcycle. As motorcyclists, we need but a reason half-an-excuse to throttle out. While the week is devoted towards earning that tank of fuel, the…
