Anu is a cool guy you got to meet. This is a place that shows the love for bikes and freedom. They have a showroom, a workshop, a shop and an office. All the spare parts are available in the shop. Service is fast and thorough. Visit his website here.
When you arrive at his shop you will notice a bench under a tree that has a carving whih says ‘Unfuck the world’. That did it for me. This is the message I would like to spread around!
Right at this time Anu is pushing to get a new building prepared for another 35 Royal Enfields that are coming this month. There will be a cafe – restaurant, a new workshop and a showroom.There is a great space in the garden where you can meet other bikers.
They are organising motor trips into Ladakh and Leh. Call him right now to book a bike and a tour.
Season starts the end of April when the Rohtang pass opens. Sun starts shining half of april. This is the best time to get to Manali. Guesthouses have rooms from Rs150 to 700 with attached bathroom. Later the prices go up. There are less tourists and there is a festival around the 15th when all the Gods from the valley come and visit in Vashisht. Some rain might be there but it won’t last. Touring with a Royal Enfield on the roads in the valley is a pleasure. Make trips to Old Manali with their shops and restaurants and get to some of the small villages up on the mountain side like Majhach and start tracking. Everywhere people offer you Charas, Hasjish, and if you look a bit around you will find some good quality that you won’t find at home. From the beginning of may the Rohtang pass opens and you can pass with your bike heading towards Ladakh and Leh.

When you buy a Royal Enfield you need some paperwork.
Check if you got a NOC!!!
What is NOC?
NOC (No Objection Certificate) is a certificate which is needed to submit in the new state in case you transfer your vehicle from your home state, where your vehicle is registered, to another state.
eg. When you transfer your bike from Karnataka to Delhi, you need to get NOC from Karnataka RTO. Only with NOC you can change your address and can re-register your bike as per rules of Delhi state.
NOC is also mandatory when you buy a used vehicle from other state. In this case the buyer needs to get the NOC from the seller.
How to get NOC?
First of all you need to have the following documents before applying for NOC.
1. Original RC Book
2. Insurance Certificate
3. Four copies of Form 28 with Chasis number pencil print
4. A court fee stamp of Rs 4.
5. Police clearance certificate from the local police station. (It is to state that the vehicle is not stolen or it has no criminal records. It is CRB (Crime Record Beuro) in Tamil Nadu. So the name changes from state to state.)
6. No Objection Letter from the financier if it is under lease/hire purchase.
Along with all the documents mentioned above and a receipt of NOC payment, you need to apply for NOC at the RTO, where your vehicle was registered. You will be delivered the NOC within 7 days by post.
Now with the NOC and other required documents you can apply for change of address and re-registration in case you shift your vehicle to a new state for more than one year. In the new state you need to pay lifetime tax as well. So after getting registered and getting the new number with the new state you can apply for refunding the tax you paid in the home state.
If there is no NOC with the bike you will not be able to sell the bike to someone who wants to put the bike on their name. This might be all Indian people! If there is no NOC, the price goes down severely.
You can get an insurance for about Rs 1000 a year at an insurance agent.
