4 wheels move the body, 2 wheels move the soul!
How has motorcycling changed you and your life?
Motorcycling has taken me to some of the best spots to observe nature and have fun with friends. Motorcycling has also helped me help others in the urban jungle in times of disasters/accidents.
How did it happen that you turned your passion for motorcycling and motorcycles into a means of giving back to the society/brotherhood in a substantial manner?
In a country where road accidents is a big killer, it is important for bikers at least to ride safely and also assist the victims in times of need. Never turn away from an accident, instead use it as an opportunity to help.
Just put yourself in the place of the victim and ask yourself how you would feel if just left to die.
