For you, what does it mean to be a motorcyclist?

Started at the age of 16 in local autocross events,then promoted myself to motocross. After that a little bit of stunting on Indian & foreign bikes,Then comes the real league of Pro-Road Racing From RX-135Stock to RX-135(Modified) & Now totally into the Supersport 600cc Expert Category National & International.Today this country knows my name & what I do & having over 10k followers on Facebook for my kinda sport in this country is a achievement itself.But it doesn't end much more to come in the future...

How would you justify the inherent dangers and risk involved in track racing on motorcycles?

Please always wear your riding gear and keep your fitness at peak level if u wanna be competitive.Today we have access to the top riding gears in India.We can replace a broken bike or a helmet but not your head or your life.In a organised racing event we have safety parameters & medical assistance so the risks involved are minimal when compared to racing on the road.Take the right path to racing or stunting,with proper guidance and expert advice,street stunting ain't worth it,We are always here to help.

What are the best and the worst things about motorcycle racing in India?

Motorcycle racing in India is at the grass-root level, it needs more exposure and support from the Government & Corporate sectors.We don't have access to the circuits easily and importing racing related products costs us dearly and has become an expensive affair.Support from the Federation also has been minimal.Top racers like us struggle for support and our racing career comes to end with a lot of regret.

Golden Question : How do you feel when you ride?

People ride motorcycle for a variety of reasons, I feel extremely peaceful and happy while riding. Always have felt that way. It's like all your worries drift away. I also feel more in touch with nature.I feel alive when I ride.Certain feelings in life can't be expressed by words but rather felt like: 1) Mother's Love 2) First Motorcycle 3) First Love 4) First Salary 5) Your First Born Child & Goes on... Why don't you ride and feel complete rather than regret someday...!!!
