Royal Enfield riders praised by President Obama

Royal Enfield motorcycles paraded, and President Obama was impressed.
Royal Enfield motorcycle riders received a verbal salute from U.S. President Barak Obama after he witnessed India's Republic Day Parade Jan. 26, 2015.

The president referred to the impressive performance of Border Police on Royal Enfield motorcycles in the parade. Obama noted their dare-devil stunts to set up a joke about how the Secret Service doesn't let him ride motorcycles.

Ritesh C. Soni, film editor for yash Raj Films, prepared this clip of the President's remarks for Facebook.

View this YouTube video of the parade to get some idea of how remarkable it is that the Royal Enfield segment was mentioned. The Republic Day parade is a combination of floats, military bands, drill teams, costumes and military gear with a touch of Bollywood thrown in.

Reader Charles Fernandes kindly found this additional link to a short YouTube clip of the Border Police performance itself.
