About The Royal Riders
Now you can travel India on a bullet in a safe and adventurous way. The Royal Riders have driven thousands of miles around this amazing country to put together the most inspiring and unique adventures possible. We don’t follow the tourist trail, we follow our favourite routes discovered by us throughout our years of riding adventures. Our goal is to let you experience first hand the craziness of India as seen from the bike and to offer you the opportunity to discover the beautiful culture and diversity of landscape that is Southern India. All our trips are taken in this spirit, you will pass through crazy busy towns, villages that time forgot, coast, mountain, beaches, highways and bypaths, you will experience markets, temples, history, modernity and many unexpected but wonderful things that India has to offer. The Royal Riders make this exciting and unexplored India safe and accessible to any one who knows how to drive a bike. We hope to meet and share our experiences and beautiful India with you very soon.

We asked Royal Riders for a different type of trip, and that is what we got. I find that many people travel to new countries to ride motorcycles. I ride motorcycles in order to travel to new countries. What Royal Riders put together for us was a fantastic Indian experience. The rides were varied and no two places we stopped seem vaguely similar. One day it would be a beach experience with kite surfers at their remote ocean retreat. The next night would find us in a huge mansion in a town history had forgotten. The day after would be on a houseboat tied up beside a small path, villagers walking by going about their business. Other nights would be in coffee plantation where we drank our coffee as the workers returned from the work in the countryside……. This was my girlfriends first motorcycle trip. By the end of the first day she had traveled twice as far on a motorcycle as she had ridden previously. Our guide was able to accommodate for her lack of experience and we all returned in great shape…… I have taken many trips with other companies. Those trips can often start feeling like work. Up at 8:00am, ride all day to find yourself in a new hotel which is almost the same as the last. The Royal Rider will provide a very different experience if you let them…… Of course if you just want to ride twisty mountain roads through tea plantations all day, they will do that too.

I used Royal Riders twice on a recent holiday trip to Puducherry, both with great experiences. Once, when taking a day tour with a guide through the local regions and on to Auroville, and then a second time when renting a motorcycle on our own and travelling with my partner as a pillion passenger down the road less travelled, on our own adventure. Both times the service, level of communication, professionalism, condition of the bikes, value for money, and quality of the overall experience were excellent. Riding a Royal Enfield in Tamil Nadu was definitely a highlight of our trip!

We had an awesome trip from pondi to Goa through the magnificent India, but what made it the best was the professionalism of the royal riders and the cool tour leader Raul....we became friends and he made sure the trip is planned and squeezed everything into it! Amazing and safe riding skills, always looked after us and we had many laughs. Big up royal riders and will definitely be back soon!
