Hi there, I have managed to secure a few months off work and want to fullfill a dream of driving a royal enfield from India back to the U.K. I see that you guys have some experience of buying an enfield in India and have had an amazing time travelling around. I was wondering if you could offer some advce on where I can get a bike from and some advice on insurance etc. Basically any help to get me stared would be hugely appreciated. Many Thanks, Oli

Advice

Hi Oli,
Sounds amazing - something we have often dreamt about ourselves!

We bought our bike in Goa at Soni's in Mapusa. They also have a branch in Karol Bagh, Delhi which is a better option if you are starting in the north. I'd suggest buying from a recommended dealer/mechanic rather than another tourist, since you will have more confidence in the quality of the bike.

Though you can easily purchase a second-hand bike as a foreigner in India, you can not have it put in your name when you are on a tourist visa. You are therefore unable to buy legal insurance for the bike. People may try to sell you it, but you would not be able to make a claim! The bike will remain in the name of the last previous residential owner who had legal papers. This isn't as bad as it sounds - the police in India (if you're stopped) will usally not push the issue - you can always claim you are borrowing it from a friend. By the way, we were never stopped by the police on our journey.

Obviously buy a good travel insurance plan from the UK that covers your extra needs. You may want to buy a top quality helmet in the UK too.

You will need to sort out visas for all the countries you intend to pass through ahead of time and consider that Enfield parts will be harder to obtain once outside of India - so maybe take several spares.

If you've not driven in India before, I'd suggest giving yourself a few weeks to acquaint yourself with the bike and the roads before you venture towards the UK. Give yourself as much time as you can to make the trip, and consider a 500cc, since on the 350cc progress will be slow.

Check out this blog - we found it extremely helpful! http://howtobuyenfield.blogspot.com

Hope this helps - feel free to ask any more questions. We'd love to hear about your adventure as it unfolds!

Beth and Chris
