The Royal Enfield was the obvious choice of venue for a meeting for the Royal Enfield Owners’ Club and UK distributors.
Around 50 enthusiasts and members attended the gathering at the pub, which opened in Redditch in May 2010.
The pub’s name refers to the famous motorcycle manufacturers BSA and Royal Enfield, based in Redditch during the twentieth century. BSA was in the town from 1911 to 1926. Royal Enfield was associated with Redditch for around 60 years.
The company produced a stream of successful motorcycles, including the Meteor, Clipper, Crusader and Constellation, until it stopped trading in 1967.
The Royal Enfield Owners’ Club was set up in the 1970s for enthusiasts of the motorcycle and everything associated with the company. The club organises meetings and rallies, runs a website forum and produces a monthly magazine.
Sergio Marques, manager at The Royal Enfield, said: “It was fantastic to see all the bikers and their motorcycles outside the pub.
“The group enjoyed a lunch with us. The event was a great success and we hope to see them again in the future.”
