For you, what does it mean to be a motorcycle stunter?
HE IS AN ODD MAN AMONG BIKERS, HE PERFORM SOME BREATHTAKING STUNTS ON BIKES AGAINST GRAVITY. I THINK HE SHOULD NOT MAKE NUISANCE TO PUBLIC AND TAKE ADEQUATE GEARS,EXPERTISE BEFORE PERFORMING STUNTS.
How has motorcycling changed you and your life?
IT STOOD AS A BROTHER TO ME. I CAN RELY HIM ON ANY TERRAINS, ANY TIME, ANY WHERE. ITS BECAME A PASSION I AM RIDING HIM PAST 5 YEARS. I NEVER EXPERIENCED ANY BITTER FROM HIM. I CAME TO KNOW HOW TO BEHAVE ON ROADS, TRAFFICS etc. ACTUALLY ITS A CULTURE
How would you justify the inherent dangers and risk involved in stunting on motorcycles?
THAT IS ALL UPTO THE PERSON WHO PERFORM. HIS EXPERTISE, CONDITION OF THE MACHINE. THE PRIME THING IS "DON'T HARM OTHERS".
Tell us briefly about your 2 most memorable stunt performances?
ACTUALLY I AM NOT A STUNTER. I LOVE JOURNEYS ON BIKES, BUT I USED TO DO SOME STUNTS LIKE SMOKING RUBBER, 360 & BASIC WHEELIE. I LOVE OFF ROADS. 1)IT WAS HAPPEND A YEAR AGO.I WAS CLIMBING A HILL, I TAKEN THE MACHINE UP AND UP.IT WAS AN EXTREME TERRAIN,BIG STONES,LOOSE SAND,GRAVEL..OH!MANY TIMES TYRE RESISTED TO GRIP, SOMEHOW I CLIMBED UP AND LOOKED.OMG! THE ROAD STOPS THERE.I ASKED SOME LOCALS AND THEY TOLD ME THAT MY DIVERSION WAS WRONG, THE ONLY REMODY IS TO CLIMB DOWN. WHILE COMING DOWN IT WAS VERY RISK. MACHINE LOST CONTROL MANY TIMES & TOOK DOUBLE TIME THAN TO CLIMB UP.WHILE COMING DOWN I CAME TO KNOW THAT THE ROAD I HAVE CLIMBED UP IS TO A QUARRY AND IF I WOLUD LOSE CONTROL I MAY SERIOUSLY HURT. ANYWAY I REACHED SAFELY. I NEVER FORGET THIS INCIDENT IN MY LIFE.
What has been the biggest highlight of your racing career so far?
As a stunter, how have you contributed to the society/brotherhood and plan to do so in the years to come?
I WOULD LIKE TO AWARE PEOPLE ON GOOD RIDING CULTURE. LIKE MAINTAINING CAREFULNESS, ADEQUATE HEAD PROTECTION, PROPER SIGNALS, KEEPING LEFT ON ROAD, PROPER OVERTAKING, USE OF MIRRORS etc. I PREFER START THEM YOUNG. AND I WOULD LIKE TO TAKE PART IN ANY BIKERS THOSE WHO ARE DOING AN ALL INDIA TOUR ON BIKE FOR CONTRIBUTION TO SOCIETY
What are the best and the worst things about motorcycle stunting in India?
BEST: MANY OF YOUNG TALENTED BRATS ARE COMING UP AND FORMING CLUBS DOING EXCELLENT STUNTS.
WORST: MANY OF THEM ARE HARMING PUBLIC OR RESISTING TO OBEY TRAFFIC RULES LIKE, STOPPING AT SIGNAL, WEARING HELMET etc. MEANS NOT RESPONSIBLE TO REST OF THE PEOPLE ON ROAD. THEY THINK "WE RULE"..
Golden Question : How do you feel when you ride?
I FEEL ULTIMATE FREEDOM. I FIND MYSELF, MY PROS & CONS..SO AND SO
