In April, a trial run was conducted in which many Classic scooters took part on the route to Madikeri and back.


Both or the riders are also members of Mangalore Classic Scooter Club. The club in attempts to not only save and showcase heritage of Classic Scooters of all makes, but also keep them going strong in today’s modern world with much faster vehicles.


During their long journey, they encountered many fascinating people, family and friends, riders from different clubs, who all came together to welcome them with open arms. Handing over of the Star of Kargil Banner, with signatures from all the Motorcycling Club riders, conveying their message of respect and honour to the brave soldiers who guard borders in tough terrain, was the highlight of their trip. The action of the duo, who had travelled from Kanyakumari, greatly touched and impressed the commandant and chiefs of the Kargil Army Camp.
