Owner of AB original Tours ("AB" being initials of the name), leads most of the tours himself. Besides the distinction of having ridden Solo through almost the whole of India (30 states/ territories) on a 100 day tour covering 17,670 kms on his motorcycle he also has 12 years experience of organizing & leading motorcycle tours under his "kidney" belt. His “testimonials” speak for him as there is hardly any without a mention of his “attention to detail”, “local knowledge”, “extreme professionalism”, et al. And as one customer puts it, “Atul becomes a friend to us all with his good humour & such a friendly nature.”
With 8 years under his belt, Dheeraj is a valuable asset of the "AB original" outfit. After joining ABoriginal Tours as Atul's 2-I-C in 2014, he quickly learned the "nitty-gritties" of leading motorcycle tours in India and has been leading tours for us since 2015. With is professionalism as well his fun & friendly nature, he has earned his place as a valuable member of the organization. The fact that his name appears several times in our TripAdvisor reviews is a testament to it.
This young lad is the "all-rounder" of the team; manages a lot of "behind the scene" tasks on the tours, looks after the bikes (when we’re not touring), maintains files & keeps stock of our spares/gear (even our beers !). All these years with us and we can say that he's become quite a mechanic as well. A great value to the team.
Rajender was the youngest member of the team when he left his job at a Royal Enfield workshop and joined us in 2013. He loves being on the tours rather than the “9 to 5” routine of a regular workshop. Besides being an exceptional mechanic, his meticulous work on our bikes keeps them in tip-top shape throughout the year.

On our tours your luggage comes in the back-up vehicles which follow us & are not very far behind. However, if desired, you can bring a
small back-pack to carry stuff needed during a ride, like your day pack, water, rain-gear, wind-breaker etc.).
