For you, what does it mean to be a motorcyclist?
Motorcycling is passion, relaxation, fun and a need.
How has motorcycling changed you and your life?
motorcycling has taught me discipline, balance, sprinting and making a mark where ever i go just like my motorcycle.
How would you justify the inherent dangers and risk involved in riding on motorcycles?
Risk and danger are inherent when it comes to motorcycling.
Motorcycle racing is considered one of the most dangerous sport in the world.
Thrill of biking comes with a great deal of danger, and hence i always take that extra measure to be safe. In my opinion it is better to be a safe rider than a good rider, because its not only about your life on the road but also those who are there on the road getting back home.
Tell us briefly about your 2 most memorable life-incidents involving you as a motorcyclist?
It was a cool summer night i was crossing Madhya pradesh in a typical biker gear with a leather jacket, long boots and a helmet. I stopped at a dhaba along the highway in a remote area. The truck drivers stared at me all the while i was having a cup of tea. After i was done with having my tea i asked the dhaba wala how much do i have to pay for it? He refused to take any money despite insisting him numerous times.
Later i discovered from the locals that there are anti social activists who lurk around in a similar outfit.
The second best incident was at my college parking when one of my college fellow took out his brand new bike out of the parking lot, started and said "MY DAD GOT ME THE FASTEST INDIAN BIKE" i took out my yamaha rx135 keys and told him "ARE YOU SURE?" We went in sprinting and yes i lost him behind me.
As a motorcyclist, how have you contributed to the society/brotherhood and plan to do so in the years to come?
Joined various biker communities and always look forward to take part in events and rides that are for a cause.
