North East Riders Meet (NERM) 2023 will be hosted by BLACK HURRICANES MOTORCYCLE CLUB in the state of Assam. Normally, NERM is annually held on a rotation by the clubs affiliated to NEAR of the respective states of North East India including Sikkim. NERM was passed on to Black Hurricanes MC and Assam state in the year 2023 after Royal Riders Manipur, who was supposed to be the host for 2023, handed over the privilege of hosting the event owing to the recent unrest in the state of Manipur.
The main purpose of NERM is to organize a festival and bring the Royal Enfield riding fraternity together, a time of bonding. However, this event promotes tourism to the North Eastern states of India as a whole and the hosting state in particular. The participants of this event come from NE India, mainland India, and abroad like Nepal, Bhutan, and even a few European countries and the United States and they usually travel the length and breadth of NE India pre or post-NERM.
Black Hurricanes plan to hold NERM 2023 from the 1st Dec till the 3rd Dec 2023. BHMC is expecting the participation of 2000 to 2500 Royal Enfield riders this particular year. This will be the single biggest entity that will bring this many riders to witness and participate in the event and thus promote tourism to Assam state to a significant extent as well.
