A Royal Enfield really is a God in India

A Royal Enfield motorcycle deified by believers in India is the subject of a YouTube video by Peter Bengelsdorf, who came across the shrine dedicated to the Bullet 350.

Bengelsdorf explains how the motorcycle became a God but he declines to say where the shrine is, for fear it would be overwhelmed by tourists. Bengelsdorf is a journalist and a former Newsday section editor. The video is informative and quite entertaining.


  1. Haha, you know, if any bike could become a god, it's the Enfield.

  2. Every Enfield owner has probably had the experience of finding the bike hard to start at some point. And then, another day, it almost does seem to start on its own. It does have a mind of its own. It never hurts to pray...
