The Madras Bulls is a motorcycling club founded in Madras (now known as Chennai). The club was founded in April 2002 by Joe Jomy John, with a passion towards the Royal Enfield Bullet.
The tagline “To Hell with you, To Heaven with Us” is an identity to the attitude of the MadBulls.
Initially started with 7 passionate bikers, the club has now grown to 110 Madbulls and about 1082 ( as on Oct 2011) members in the announce group. The Madbulls are a motley group of bikers with passion and spirit towards touring, brotherhood, camaraderie and zest. The MadBulls ride motorcycles from the Royal Enfield stable. Every MadBull spends time, effort and passion in customizing his/her bike as an identity to themselves.
