It’s that time of the year when Royal Enfield riders, customisers and basically all who love Royal Enfield bikes flood Goa for Rider Mania, Royal Enfield’s premier event.

The three-day extravaganza plays host to a lot of activities like dirt track racing, cleanest motorcycle competition and a whole lot more. The event is organised for both men and women.


Day 1 of the event mostly comprised of registrations and practice sessions. Not all who come are professional riders. The event organised special training sessions for amateur riders, who can then participate in different races.

Most of the riders at the event came from the southern part of the country. Many were from states like Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Kerala while participation from the Northern States was in small numbers this year.

Most of the day went by with different events happening at different arenas spread across a vast area of land in Vagator, Goa. Later, the evening was set alight by music.


The event also had a special arena for customised Royal Enfield motorcycles where customisers from different parts of the country showed off their creations. According to some customisers, it takes about two to three months to make one custom bike. In the market the bikes would cost anywhere between Rs 2.5 lakh and Rs 3 lakh.
