For your club, what does motorcycling stand for?
Motorcycling stand for freedom, attaining Niravana.
Our club motto is Ride Free... Ride High...
We ride free.. and ride with high spirits. Motorcycling is not just a passion, its our life.
Tell us briefly about the motorcycling ethics followed collectively by your club especially when related to practicing and promoting safe motorcycling?
We have made the use of helmets & boots compulsory in the club.
We ride as a pack & overtaking is not allowed. Like all clubs we do have leads & sweeps in the ride.
Apart from this we have Marshals, whose responsibility is to control the crowd during meet ups & rides. They do not allow anyone to overtake, they make sure each rider reaches home after the ride safely.
We promote the use of riding gears for all the rides, even if it is a city ride. The hand signals are followed strictly and carried from the lead till the sweep.
We always take a mechanic along with us in all our rides.
How would you justify the inherent dangers and risk involved in riding motorcycles?
Motorcycling can be fun 7 dangerous too.
When riding with all the precautions and instructions the ride can be safe and fun.
A little diversion from the instructions, it can even claim your life.
Riding fast will only make sure you are riding alone. We believe in group riding.
Riding under the influence of alcohol, over speeding, riding without safety gears & not following the traffic rules leads to accidents that can not only claim the riders life, but others too
Tell us briefly about the 2 most memorable/important motorcycling events organized by or participated in by your club?
The 2 most memorable events were:
1) Ride to Kurnool
The ride was organised by Hyderabad Royals club and were joined by around 25 bullets. it was a 2 day ride.
We faced all kinds of terrains and difficulties. We had break downs, tyre puncture etc. This was a very good riding experience for us. Thank god, we had a mechanic with us.
2) Freedom ride 2013
Our club joined this ride organised by Royal Enfield. Around 200 bullets joined the ride.
Out of which 50 were from our club. We could feel the thump in the air and brotherhood spreading.
How has your motorcycling club contributed to the society/brotherhood and plan to do so in the years to come?
Our club has brought together many, bullet enthusiasts & riders from hyderabad/secunderabad together.
We organise weekly & monthly rides/meet ups. Educate on safe riding skills.
What are the best and the worst things about motorcycling in India?
Motorcycling scene in India is disturbed by the street hooligans, who ride bikes with out any safety gears, show off with stunts on the streets & over speed.
Riding is an art and should be respected. People in India, are not educated or cared about the advantages of safety gears while riding.
They think safety gears are expensive. Well to know what is expensive, try an accident.
