For you, what does it mean to be a motorcyclist?
for me being a motorcyclist is d passion & love for your bike. the love for it that makes you go for distant journeys & enjoy each & every moment of riding your bike. my bike is like my heart & soul which i can't live without. racing, a bit of stunting & cruising on the bike is the best experience i have got...
How has motorcycling changed you and your life?
learnt a lot from my past accidents.. mainly never to fear death & i have come out to be a better rider after the past accidents.
Life tested you severely and motorcycling helped you to fight back – tell us that story of courage and inspiration.
i used to previously race on my bike & also perform a bit of stunts due to which i have had a lot of accidents & near misses. these accidents have made me a more stronger person while on my bike. i have had d worst of bruises & seen death but got saved by a second. that's what made me ride more carefully & never fear death. each accident made me get up & learn more so i dont make the same mistake again.
Tell us briefly about your 2 most memorable life events involving motorcycles?
the time when i had gone to goa on my Hero Honda karizma. it was an awesome experience for me..the roads, the places..the feel of riding my bike on the highway...
& the 2nd time was when it was raining heavily & me & my friends went on our bikes to ratnagiri. that rain coming on my face & the road visibility getting even worse with every downpour made me learn a lot.
As a motorcyclist, how have you contributed to the society/brotherhood and plan to do so in the years to come?
i have forced my friends to 1st wear helmets when riding your bike. because i had told them the way i got saved because of my helmet. & also make the ride more carefully. be a safe rider.
What are the best and the worst things about motorcycling in India?
the best things are i love the bumpy roads. the bike keeps bouncing when it enters every pothole & also in Mumbai a bike is the best vehicle which can be removed from each & every corner.
the worst thing is that now days people are more dangerous & rough on the roads. the dont give an indicator while turning & also ride or drive rash which can put someone else in danger. the highways have parking lots under it & when you are on the highway at a speed & suddenly a car comes out of tha parking you get scared & tend to brake hard which may skid the bike.
