As soon as we reached the registration Counter we were asked to produce our registration Number as well as ID proof once that was done we were provided with a wrist band which read ROYAL ENFIELD RIDER MANIA 2015 we had to wear it and that was the entry ticket for us for all the days we are going to participate. without that band you would not be allowed inside the Venue.
Once we got the band we were let inside near the main Stage area where the T-Shirts and stickers were being distributed. wooooooow so much of crowd there to get the T-Shirt you litreally had to push each other and get it. Welcome to India where we dont believe in the queue system. everybody feels it his/her right to be the first.
Anyways lets keep the discussion to Rider Mania finally after around 45 mins we got our T-Shirts. It Felt as we have Landed in Royal Enfield Planet. RE's everywhere Modified RE's, Dirt Bike RE's Cruiser RE's, Bobbers People from outside India had also come for this event from Argentina ,Madrid U.K. it felt nice that our desi brand is made good name for itself, I know it was originally U.K. Based. But we all felt proud to have joined this Planet, Community, Brotherhood. After Passing our time here as it was the frist day there were no much events planned.
we headed to our rooms and checked in it was around 7:00 and everyone was so exhausted. you could see that tired faces hanging down.
Time to Freshen up, we all were ready after a nice bath to go out, we went to the venue and there was music being played and it was nice. our Guys wanted to go someplace quiter as we have had a long day. so we sped from the venue and went to place called curlies in anjuna.
We all had a great dinner with some dance in the sand. it was great we returned back and had a sound sleep. Day 1 was over for us.
Day 2. I wanted to participate in a event called Early risers it was from 7:00- 12:00 ther was a jungle ride planned and a ferry ride for you and your Ride and then again ride in the jungles and finally come back. I missed it as i woke up around 8:00 due to tiredness and loss of sleep the previous day. Felt really bad about it.
However we made it to the venue and it wasnt going to open up until 12:00 so we waited out and in the meantime there was dirt track preliminaries going on we watched that and a Guy from Solapur Bike No 121 was riding good.
finally the gates were opened and we were let inside the venue. There were 27 modified Bikes this time and 10-12 stalls from different accessory provider like RED ROOSTER Performance Exhaust babloo Motors from Mumbai and a Seat maker From Mumbai, Apparel shops, How can you forget the beer stall
There was a fusion song of classical and Indy pop it was fantabulous. we enjoyed a lot. however The Pics i had clicked of the modified Bikes had not come in the camera pics. i saw it once we were out of the venue in the evening felt so sad that i couldn't cover all the pics. MY apologies for it. we came back to our rooms freshened up and went for the event once again. by the time we reached it was dark and i couldnt click the pics of the modified bikes once again. we enjoyed a few beers and by the time we could hit the floor to dance there was so much dust and smoke around we thought we would come out of the place and we did. had our dinner and by the time came to know that there is a night market that is being set at Arpora we all wanted to go there as it was our last night in goa. so we all went there had great fun and returned to our respective rooms and slept peacefully.
Day3: as it was sunday and as we had to reach back to Mlore we didnt find much time to spend as we had to leave by 11:00 A.M. to reach by 9:00 P.M. and join our respective duties on Monday. The Ride back home was Boring as we knew that we are going back to follow our monotonous work schedule we were riding towards our hometown however our thought were lingering around Rider mania Vagator.
Pics will be uploaded soon.
