For you, what does it mean to be a motorcyclist?
Quicker, faster, better and cooler than being inside a car behind the wheel..
How has motorcycling changed you and your life?
I'm punctual with the help of my ride.
How would you justify the inherent dangers and risk involved in riding on motorcycles?
Morons driving cars and autos are the only threats to us. Riders ride safe and responsibly.
Tell us briefly about your 2 most memorable life-incidents involving you as a motorcyclist?
I would talk about the only times I've actually dropped my bike on the road(twice). First one, I was speeding(80+ approx) and suddenly a cab started to take u-turn near the divider, I couldn't take the risk of jamming the brakes and falling on the road, so I went ahead and rammed the car on the front right door head on, not a scratch on me but my bike's handle literally was in two pieces(split handle). I just banged my left shoulder on the car and just stood there. The cab guy chose to claim insurance as it was his fault and left immediately. The second one, would be when I was standing in a signal and a techie in a car kept turning his car and literally knocked my bike(note that the bike was not even in motion), was a funny accident but still keeps reminding me of how stupid people behind the wheel are.
As a motorcyclist, how have you contributed to the society/brotherhood and plan to do so in the years to come?
Nothing as of now, but in the future if I witness any accident, I would immediately pick the person and put him/her on my bike and take him/her to the nearest hospital instead of asking cars and autos for help.
What are the best and the worst things about motorcycling in India?
Worst: traffic, buses, autos, cabs and pedestrians
Best : fellow motorcyclists
