The Bangalore Jawa Yezdi Motorcycle Club (BJYMC) along with its sister clubs across South India will get together to showcase their love and passion for their classic Jawa and Yezdi bikes at Southern Raid 4.

Southern Raid with BJYMC & Roaring Riders, Chennai

Southern Raid, the annual get-together of Jawa Yezdi bike clubs in South India is in its fourth consecutive year. 2012 will witness participation from 7 city clubs Bangalore, Chennai, Mysore, Trivandrum, Cochin, Coimbatore and Kanyakumari. Bangalore being the hosts this year will have the largest contingent of over 50 bikers. Bikers will spend two days interacting with each other, share knowledge and bond over their machines before riding back to their destinations.

To showcase the comfort and reliability of the once popular Jawa and Yezdi bikes, BJYMC bikers will journey a distance of 480 kms across Tamil Nadu and Kerala to reach their destination - Munnar. The team will cover this distance in about 11 - 12 hours with adequate breaks for both riders and their machines. All bikes are aged between 16 – 32 years and still run like they used to during their heydays.

“Each year, we look forward to meeting fellow bikers from different cities and Southern Raid gives us a platform to meet & interact with our community of bikes from South India. What started as a casual ride for two city clubs (Bangalore & Chennai in 2009) has today grown to a national event with over 7 city clubs joining in” said Lokesh JM, Co-founder of BJYMC.
