About: The Dirty Dozen
This is a very special and unique motorcycle adventure through South India. You will become an immediate member of the Dirty Dozen and will be riding a brand spanking new Royal Enfield Bullet: 500cc Trials Works Replica. These are being presented to us in person by Royal Enfield themselves. We start and finish in the former Portuguese colony of Goa. It’s paradise on earth with its seemingly never-ending golden beaches, magnificent cuisine and coastal roads winding through ancient teak forests. We’ll also take in the vast neighbouring state of Karnataka with its colourful temples, tiger inhabited jungles, stunning coffee estates, mist covered hill stations and opulent palaces.
As the name suggests, the tour is limited to 12 motorcycles only.
As well as having an epic adventure with friends old and new we also have a fund-raising objective. The Dirty Dozen are raising vital funds for Adventure Ashram and the new Odanadi Boys Workshop in Mysore.
Become one of the Dirty Dozen and accept this mission.
During the ride we will be visiting the project to see exactly how the monies raised will be spent.
We need each rider or pillion to donate £1000.00 towards the group target of £20,000.00 – the additional £8,000.00 will be raised through group focused and individual fund raising initiatives. All donations will be made directly to Adventure Ashram via a Dirty Dozen group fundraising page.
The funds raised by the Dirty Dozen will provide training and tools for 150 young people at the Odanadi Boys Workshop to become the mechanics of tomorrow. Each year, 30 boys will attend the workshop. Our funds will have an impact for 5 years and will change the lives of 150 boys and their families.

Today’s warm up ride will be different from any other. This one’s very special as we’re being treated to a VIP experience.
