As part of the ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’ celebrations, the Indian Navy motorbike team, The Sea Riders, in partnership with Royal Enfield, embarked on an epic motorcycle expedition across the seven states of North East India from 25th November to 14th December 2022.
On Friday, from South Point School at Guwahati, the expedition was flagged off by Adm R Hari Kumar, Chief of the Naval Staff via video conference. Fifteen Sea Riders rode out on Royal Enfield Meteor 350 cc motorbikes. Across the seven states of North East, the riders will cover a total distance of 3500 km over a period of 24 days.
In two phases, the expedition is being conducted across seven states with each phase covering some of the toughest and most breathtaking terrains in North East India.
