Awesome trip from NJP to Gangtok via Darjeeling
Mar 2019 • Couples
It made only possible because of Mr. Amit (Owner) of Darjeelig riders. The best place to get rented bike and all other facilities needed during trip like providing the permit of Tsomgu, Nathula. As per my experience Darjeeling riders is the best for all who want to hire rented bike.

Once in a lifetime
Mar 2019 • Friends
I'm an Aussie living in Delhi and my brother (34) and Dad (66) visited from Aus to do a trip in Sikkim. Amit was a great help in assisting organising our solo trip and was very relaxed but helpful. We hired the bikes for 5 days and did an amazing trip to Gangtok, Yuksom and Darjeeling, with a few stops along the way. The bikes were in great condition, had minor starting issues with one bike only because a section of bumpy roads had rattled the connection loose. I would definitely recommend Darjeeling Riders and a trip in this area.

Amazing Sikkim journey with well maintained bikes
Mar 2019 • Friends
This is my 3rd Himalayan ride (1st-Leh-ladakh & 2nd Spiti-Vallet) but really loved the ride in Sikkim which includes below :
We started from Siliguri and hit West Sikkim first: Namchi, Pelling, Yuksom, Ravangla, Temi Tea and reached Gangtok.

North Sikkim : Mangan, Lachung, Katao, (couldn't cover yumtang admit was closed), Lachen and Thangu Valley (we were not allowed to hit Gurudongmar lake as roads were blocked due to heavy snowfall)

East Sikkim : Tsomgo lake, Hangu lake, Baba Harbhajan Singh Mandir.
(Again we were not allowed to cross Natula and zuluk pass by Army)

Keeping the journey aside, I would like to talk about the bikes, it's rentals and permit.

Bike Rentals : Darjeeling Riders

I would say Amit is one of the best bike provider in Siliguri and also the coolest who keeps interacting with u throughout ur journey(This seems to be a unique personality, as we did not receive it in our leh/spiti journey)
He owns all sorts of bikes (350, 500, Avenger & Himalayan) and they are very well maintained...

He will make sure you have checked the bike conditions (normally v check it when v hire) and handover spare parts that u need (Request the spares in prior else u might end up with less spares).


Permits :
Amit has his sources in Gangtok (Vivek) who owns a shop in MG.Marg and he takes of all your permits (Note : Make sure u have a list of places like lachen, lachung, Gurudongmar, zero point, yumtang, katao, Natula,Baba Harbhajan Mandir)

An incident which I had noticed about Aamit :

There were gang of 8 who hired 4 bikes and one of the bikes had broke down (may be near lachung/Mangan) and Amit had drove all the way from Siliguri and replaced the bike to them...
I had seen him ride near katao and enquired with the group.
Felt really happy for his commitment...

We are planning for Bhutan and North Sikkim again and we will surely hire bikes from Amit(Darjelling Riders) as I feel it is the best...

Important Note : It doesn't mean that the bikes will remain in same condition, make sure you have checked ur bikes thoroughly (breaks, clutch, chain, air etc) with a service station once u reach Gangtok or when u feel it needs to be checked as u will be driving through some treacherous roads.

Finally have a safe ride guys and enjoy the journey...

Cheers,
Harshith

Perfect place to hire a motorcycle For Darjeeling and sikkim trip.
Mar 2019 • Couples
If you are thinking about bike trip in darjeeling and sikkim than (Darjeeling rider) is best option for this. Mr.Amit(Owner) is a very good person, helpful and trustable person, He has a good knowledge of traveling. Staff is friendly and very professional. Once I reached there... What I say it was so good and very service given by them. Very co-operative management and very clear cut documentation, good management.

We rented 2 bikes(RE Thanderbird 350) for 7 days for our Sikkim and Darjeeling trip. Trip was awesome and memorable, so First of all thank you so much darjeeling rider for make our trip more memorable. We did not have any problem with the bikes. It was very awesome, Bike mileage is very good and nice experience.

For sikkim trip main think is document and bike detail, I really appreciate Darjeeling rider, because they provide us tool kits and all necessary documents (Bike Notary, Pollution Paper, Insurance Paper). they provided all the document those are used for permit.

We returned at the day of holi, He allow us to play holi in his office area and we had celebration holi with all, so thank you so much for your hospitality.
Main thing was, After returning the trip, Instantly he gave us return the security deposit. It’s wonderful experience with Darjeeling Riders. Looking forward to take a ride again with Darjeeling riders.

Thanks Team .. !!!

Great Experience
Mar 2019 • Friends
One of the best place to hire motorcyle from Siliguri if you are planning to explore the north eastern himalayas or Bhutan. The bikes we got were on awesome condition and well maintained as well.

We took one Classic 350 and Classic 500 and went to roam Darjeeling and Sikkim. Both the bikes were well simply incredible to ride. Although due to inclement weather conditions .Bullet 500's fuse blew. But, there was an additional fuse which was provided within it that helped us out. Mr Amit was of great help through out.

All proper documents along with necessary tools will be provided while renting the bikes. And Security deposit will be refunded promptly once we return the bikes.

It might take some time for you to reach their office if coming via Bagdogra Airport. If you want, they will deliver you the bikes at the airport. But in our case it wasn't done as they didn't had anyone to deliver the bikes. So we had to go to their office.

Overall a great experience.

The best place to hire a motorcycle from siliguri
Jan 2019 • Couples
To start off, this is the best place to rent a motorcycle from siliguri . We hired a Himalayan and went to Bhutan. Firstly , the booking process was a breeze , the owner Amit is very helpful with the booking and gave us a good price despite we hired only one RE Himalayan. He also helped us plan our trip giving tips in the permits, he also gave us paper work based on where we were going (bhutan). Coming to the vehicle itself , it was in great shape and did not give us as trouble throughout the trip. It was well maintained and we could tell the vehicle was well loved as we spent days riding. Upon return a quick inspection later they refunded our entire deposits amount without any hiccup. They even dropped us back at the hotel for a very nominal fee. In all it was a great experience . Being a seasoned rider I highly recommend it .

Fantastic experience with Bikes we’ve got!
Dec 2018 • Friends
It’s a fantastic experience with Darjeeling Riders especially Mr. Amit, he is a fantastic person who guides regarding routes etc etc. we’ve taken three RF’s including Himalayan, the bikes conditions are really good! They will give you all the spares required for mountain trips. Also one of the wonderful thing is if you directly contact Mr. Amit, he’ll offer you less price. Instantly after return he will return you the security deposit. Beyond all it’s wonderful experience with Darjeeling Riders.

I visited Sikkim on a solo ride and for the first time, didn't knew anybody,so it was hard to trust anyone. Darjeeling Riders provided me Avenger 220 at nominal cost and it was in a great condition. Didn't broke down or had any problem during my Ride. All the paperwork was correct and process was smooth.I really had a great Journey and experience. Amit Bhai helped and guided a lot. Thanks Darjeeling Riders for this awesome trip. Do visit them cause they are better than anyone else.
