For your club, what does motorcycling stand for?
Motorcycling is not only a way of life at BSC club it is a modulus of expressing our passion as riders and our true inner self. So to put it in a shorter version of understanding motorcycling in BSC club is a like a family of brotherhood of likeminded passionate people, where we consummate life in motorcycling as a family of many religion and many origins to share the individual adventures and thoughts in a very simple language of love and machines. In a nut shell BSC otherwise stands for Brotherhood – Safety – Charity.
Tell us briefly about the motorcycling ethics followed collectively by your club especially when related to practicing and promoting safe motorcycling?
Ethics of BSC club :
1. First thing first before enrolment of any member into the club there is a verification of its identity, origin and character.
2. Every ride taken is pre planned with the lightest of traffic routes ensuring least of probability of misshapes and always informed and verified with the local traffic police to ensure proper communication and adherence of laws
3. Every ride is accompanied by a support car or van with necessary medic and first aid equipment.
4. There is an appointment of a ride lead and sergeant who are in front and back of the ride group to ensure that no one is left behind .
5. It is always kept in rules that there can be no singular activity of stunts during riding or off riding days by any individual of the club to ensure the image of safe riding by the members of the BSC club
How would you justify the inherent dangers and risk involved in riding motorcycles?
First rule in BSC “When you ride ensure to believe the rest of the world is irresponsible on road and you are the only responsible for all”. There is no justification to the dangers or risk involved in riding motorcycles as there is no justification to any danger in life. The chances of someone falling from the stairs in their house would be higher than riding a motorcycle, it is so said that the chances of danger in a car is higher than that on a motorcycle. Every step in life contains a eminent threat to some danger so does motorcycling. At BSC club we do evade the danger in the same but create a environment to ensure that these dangers are not evident by simply following a very strict code of ethical conduct.
