For your club, what does motorcycling stand for?
For us motorcycling is to see the world around and to understand it and our self differently.
Tell us briefly about the motorcycling ethics followed collectively by your club especially when related to practicing and promoting safe motorcycling?
No helmet no ride, No drinking and driving, No race and even rash driving is not in our books. triple riding is always No-No. Riding gear is something we always promote but do not force it , but almost all active riders in our group ride with the gear.
How would you justify the inherent dangers and risk involved in riding motorcycles?
With concentration, planning, obeying traffic rules and live experiences you can always minimize the risk. And when we talk about risk, we would not be doing motorcycle rides and writing this right now if we did not wanted to take risk. the difference between calculated risk and stupidity is very little we try not to be stupid when we are on our beast.
Tell us briefly about the 2 most memorable/important motorcycling events organized by or participated in by your club?
First trip to Marsimic La, it was one hell of a climb with 7 riders started , 5 reached the top two could not one had a nasty fall while climbing suffered hair line fracture in wrist , rode his beast back to pangong with almost one hand in work, another could not take the AMS and just gave up, 5 of us reached the top. the feelings in between us when we reached were something we never experienced in our life we all that came closer to our self.
Second trip was the trip to zanskar valley,, 400 kms of offroading , it was trip of vistas never seen before at the same time roads were killing you every kilometer, the balance between beauty(scenery) and the beast(road) kept on tilting from one side to another for the complete journey but we made it . That trip made us feel stronger to face challenges even if they are endless.
How has your motorcycling club contributed to the society/brotherhood and plan to do so in the years to come?
Wherever we go to travel we interact with local people try to be friendly with them, we do not act like superiors to them we talk to them and share knowledge from each other and experiences , these things make them feel that they are part of bigger India and not just there local area. i think its in our nature that we like to meet people from different places in India and share knowledge with them, and yeah No-Plastics .
What are the best and the worst things about motorcycling in India?
Best things is you have every landscape I India you do not have to go anywhere its all here just go out and explore, worst thing is petrol is expensive.:)
