In long distance tour there are lot of dangers one may face. It may be classified into two aspects. One is technical. The rider should have a strong knowledge on the maintenance of bike. Second is Individual. It involves mental and physical strength. One rider on long distance tour need to ride fast but with utmost sincerity and attention.

As a motorcycle tourer, how have you contributed to the society/brotherhood and plan to do so in the years to come?

In my "Solo Motor Bike Expedition across Himalaya" I spread the awareness among the youth in Himalayas against substance abuse.

The role of human being is major in environmental pollution. Hence, in my next attempt, I will try to aware people regarding environmental protection.

Golden Question : How do you feel when you ride?

I feel like a King while I am on bike. The throttle is under my control. The nature is directly touching my skin. The enjoyment of speed is overwhelming. At the same time it also keep me aware about the responsibilities being a rider and the rules to follow. Self-reliance, the feeling of being responsible and capable of taking care of yourself, is another life experience we feel. It has a great spirit of independence and encourages for more and more expeditions.
