Kedarnath GM, an avid rider, trekker, filmmaker and author of “Dream To Ride Around The World”, has taken another world tour to fulfil his passion for motorcycling on a Royal Enfield Himalayan.
His four year long journey was flagged off by Shaji Koshy, Head Business Market – India+, Royal Enfield from the two-wheeler maker’s brand store at Adyar in Chennai. During his world tour, Kedarnath plans to cover the stretch of more than 3.7 lakh kilometer.
Already, Kedarnath has covered a stretch of 18,000 kms passing through 13 countries across Asia and Europe on his Royal Enfield Thunderbird during 2013-14. His documentary ‘A Voyage on My Motorbike’, that showcased highlights of his long travel stories, won the best film to promote world peace at the Rajasthan International Film Festival, 2016.
This is Kedarnath’s second world tour where he will traverse through varied terrains across countries in Asia, moving onto Australia, New Zealand, America, Europe and Africa on a Royal Enfield Himalayan, finally culminating his ride in UK.
Royal Enfield has extended their support to Kedarnath during his ride as a representation of the company’s commitment towards encouraging motorcycle enthusiasts towards their passion for riding and exploration.
Having hailed from a middle-class family in India with a nine-to-six job, he stepped out of his cubicle on an adventure to ride from India to Europe and returned back on his motorbike in the bitter winter of 2013. He calls his initiative as a small step towards his vision of creating a borderless world.
According to motorcyclists, Kedranath’s world tour brings out the long-touring ability of Royal Enfield. It may be noted that Royal Enfield also organizes and supports many motorcycling events and rides globally, more prominently the Rider Mania – an annual gathering of Royal Enfield riders from all over the world to the lovely beaches of Goa, and the Himalayan Odyssey, the most arduous motorcycle ride over some of the toughest roads and highest mountain passes in the Himalayas.
Royal Enfield also conducts the popular ‘One Ride’ where people around the world ride out on their motorcycles on the first Sunday of April.
