NERM (North East Riders Meet) is an annual event initiated in 2009 and it has since become the biggest festival for Royal Enfield riders and enthusiasts in the North East of India. It is organized by the Royal Enfield Riding community from the North Eastern states of India called NEAR (NorthEast Alliance of Riders). Every year one of the NEAR member club host this event in a place of their choice with its motto ‘When We Meet We Grow’. The event is not restricted only to members of Royal Enfield Clubs from NE states but is open to all solo Royal Enfield Riders and all Royal Enfield Motorcycle Clubs Pan India and abroad. This year's NERM will be hosted by Aizawl Thunders at Vanzau Tourist Resort, Chalfilh, near Khanpui, Mizoram from 26th to 28th Nov, 2019.
NEAR (North East Alliance of Riders) was formed in 2013 at Champhai, Mizoram during the 5th edition of the North East Riders Meet (NERM). It is essentially a body which administers to the functions of the different riding clubs of the North East region, particularly the Royal Enfield clubs as a collective. NEAR decides which club host NERM each year at meetings of Chiefs, Moderators and representatives of NEAR affiliated clubs. A northeast club with an attendance of minimum ten (10) members on three (3) consecutive NERM is eligible to be an affiliated member of NEAR.
NEAR do not conduct elections of its administrators or office bearers with the responsibility of doing so passed on to the hosting club of NERM every year.
HOST Aizawl Thunders was started by a group of friends who swore by their Bullets (Royal Enfield Motorcycle) back in 1999 and called themselves the Aizawl Bullet Club. The first official and recorded ride was on the 5th of November 1999-which has been recognized as the Rising Day. To make themselves more savy the members of the club have since 2003 called themselves Aizawl Thunders.
With numerous rides, a majority of them charitable ones-Aizawl Thunders is very much a household name in many parts of the state of Mizoram.
