“Brothers on Bikes” is a Sri Lankan community of motor biking enthusiasts, majorly comprised of accomplished professionals who are also seasoned riders. Brothers on Bikes (fondly known as BOBs) believe that motor biking is an art one should follow with respect and discipline. This year they’re testing new waters away from the boundaries of Sri Lanka. This August, twelve of the most experienced riders attempted to ride their Royal Enfield motorcycles to the highest road in the world (more than 18,000 feet) located in the Himalayan mountain range. This attempt was the first of its kind by Sri Lankans and was nothing short of an exhilarating adventure. The images, videos and the write-ups from the misty mountains above the clouds will tell the adventure of these 12 men on Royal Enfields.
