Riding an Enfield is accessible to everyone. The technique is easy to fathom, part prices are a fraction of those of conventional motorcycles. The contribution is low for the same reason: only € 16 per year after registration and for almost everyone affordable. The atmosphere is relaxed, and members occasionally organize a trip or tour. In the club there is plenty of knowledge available to keep everyone rolling, but let's not forget: the Enfield is a very reliable engine.
One of the goals of the club is "to form a circle of friends of riders of motorcycles of British origin in the Netherlands and abroad". We are not a so-called "Owners Club". The requirement for membership is to be sympathetic towards Enfields.
The chosen description "of British origin" naturally has everything to do with current production in India. Just as all Philips products worldwide are of course of Dutch origin, all Enfields from India are of British origin. By default, there are many other brands and "open-minded" when the Enfield drivers are, it feels like a melting pot of many metals, but Enfield is always central. Triumph, Norton, Ariel, BSA, Matchless, Panther, Vincent, but also Ural, Dnepr, BMW, Harley Davidson, Suzuki, Honda, Jawa, Kawa, Buell, etc., we have already visited everything…., but we kindly ask: preferably on an Enfield if possible ...
Membership costs €16 per year and members from abroad pay €21 per year in connection with the extra postage costs. For a new membership a one-time registration fee of €3.50 is required.

Clubs Magazine Bulletin
Four times a year their is an issue of the clubs magazine "Bulletin". The magazine is only in Dutch. What once began as a stencilled paper is now for years a successfull publication with announcements of events that you can't miss, stories about events you have missed, technical tips, tinkering reports, serious motorcycling stories, history of the golden decennia of motorcycling and more of that....
A tip for the not Dutch readers: you can (Google) translate selected text from the Bulletin in the online archives.
If you are a member, you also have access to the Members only section and the Archive. Log-in details are always in the last issue of the Bulletin, which you receive as a member at home.
Every second Sunday of the odd month, except in May (then on the third Sunday), there is a meeting of Enfield riders, the club meet. Both members and other interested parties are welcome from mid-day.
The address is:
Cafe/Restaurant "de Posthoorn"
Achthoven Oost 28
3417 PD Montfoort
0348 474 450
Rally or Camping Weekend
We try to organise a number of rallies each year, but there have to be members who want to do that.
At the moment there are 3 camping weekends: in April a spring meeting in the Achterhoek, in August a summer meeting, somewhere in the country and in October an autumn meeting in the vicinity of Apeldoorn.
Members can organize a tour themselves via the agenda of the club magazine and website by reporting this to the editor and web manager. For example, the tours Dwars door Brabant and the Veluwe Rit were organized every year.
