For you, what does it mean to be a motorcyclist?
The image I have of a motorcyclist is a helmeted rider, with stylized motorcycle clothing (color coordinated with the motorcycle of course), who rides multiple brands and styles of motorcycles, and is probably heading to a cafe to show off the bike and watch MotoGP.
How has motorcycling changed you and your life?
Motorcycling has not changed my life as I've alway had a bike. I will say that when I'm riding I feel alive. All the sensations, sounds, and smells invigorate me. I love sailing around bend, reaching down and skimming my gloved hand on the pavment, watching the road snake out in front of me. I love to get lost, to be out of touch and out of reach. I love to ride with my friends. Riding calms me down, makes me a better person.
How would you justify the inherent dangers and risk involved in long distance touring on motorcycles?
More distance touring the more chances of risks" Its actually a true statement.
i personally experienced it. My last tour of ladakh and longest ride ever. It is danger because most of the time you ride and you cant think of anything. Which increase the chances of risks.

Trip to leh and rishikesh. Both are nice and awesome trip.
As a motorcycle tourer, how have you contributed to the society/brotherhood and plan to do so in the years to come?

What are the best and the worst things about motorcycle touring in India?
Best thing : you can ride your bike anywhere like in rush , in mountains in sand and in plains.
Worst thing : nothing
Golden Question : How do you feel when you ride?
Riding a bike for me is everything i feel pleasure and very satisfied while riding. Whenever i feel bored i just start my bike and take it on highway. Riding a motorcycle is like flying. It doesn't matter what you ride, just enjoy the journey.
