Over 250 Royal Enfield aficionados and their partners gathered at the Fountain Hotel, Mahabaleshwar between Mar 1st-3rd as part of a Royal Enfield western reunion. The reunion saw Enfield owners from Mumbai, Pune, Kolhapur, Sholapur, Nasik, Satara, Thane, Nagpur and Goa riding into the picturesque hill-station on a wide variety of Royal Enfields, ranging from decades old thumpers to the latest models from 2013.
The three days packed in competitions including a slow race (with pillion), carry your bike, bike towing, beer drinking and arm wrestling, keeping all the Royal Enfield loyalists entertained. A prize distribution ceremony was held for all winners and the nights included a party lasting well into the wee hours at this fun event. The reunion gave Royal Enfield owners a chance to take time out from their busy urban schedules, to get out on their motorcycles.
