For you, what does it mean to be a motorcyclist?

For me a true Motorcyclist is the one who loves his machines like anything. treat them like a girlfriend. should have knowledge about basic/full troubleshooting of his bike. maintain them in every single manner because a Motorcyclist is recognize by his bike performance and condition also it will be a tribute to our environment. he should obey traffic rules and respect pedestrians and other riders/drivers on roads. He should upgrade his motorcycles if his pocket allows in 2-3 yrs.

How has motorcycling changed you and your life?

Since my childhood whenever I got scolding from my parents/elders I simply leave home for a long ride on my bicycle or moped. This goes on for a long time and I started loving bikes and collecting information about sports bike etc. I got my first bike Bajaj Discover 125cc-dtsi at the age of 19 yrs when I was in 1st year of college. I was the centre of atraction in my friends as no one is having a bike like mine. I spent most of my time on long rides near canals, national highways enjoying weather. And whenever its raining I and my friend go for a rainy ride with some refreshments. Motorcycling is a mode of relaxation for me. My weakness is motorcycles and with high power. Currently having 3 bikes with me. Bajaj Discover(2005), Honda Unicorn(2009) and Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350cc twin-spark(2009). Motorcycling is a part of my life.

How would you justify the inherent dangers and risk involved in long distance touring on motorcycles?

I believe that death keeps no calender. It can come at any time. I ride bike for my self satisfaction and for my instinct says it to me. As per past experiences I got to learn new things on every ride I did. Yes risks are involved in long distance touring and there is no spice in life without taking risk. As a safety point of view I follow all possible measures like riding gear, first-aid kit, puncture kit, tool kit just because someone is waiting for you at home. Its a sense of achievement after completing a long bike tour. Clicking pictures of nature, running parallel to nature and experiencing that nature is most powerful then us. It boosts my confidence level on all types of roads time by time. Sharing your riding experiences is the most lovable part with family and friends.

1st most memorable ride is Leh-Ladakh tour which I completed from 03June13-17June13.With the planning of almost 3-4 months.collecting all possible information about roads,weather,food,shelter,petrol-pumps,service-stations etc.I started my journey on 03'June from Delhi-Manali-Leh-Srinagar-Delhi. We were group of 7 boys.It was a dream ride for everyone as Leh bike tour is assumed to be the toughest of al long distance touring. It ws lifetime exp for me aftr touching Kharadungla Pass, Tanglangla Pass etc.Most beautiful ride was to Pangong Tso. Simply incredible.
2nd Most memorable was my ride to Shimla. It was a sudden plan. I visited my friend in Patiala on my weekly off. It was a surprise for my friend as reached his college hostel on bike. and we started for Shimla after checking map.

As a motorcycle tourer, how have you contributed to the society/brotherhood and plan to do so in the years to come?

I haven't done it yet but I am planning to open a biker helpline to help the school/college/office going girls in late night hours or in case of emergency as these days rape cases are increasing. I believe this step will make our society more peaceful and secure. It will be 24x7 helpline and call will be routed to person living nearby area and in case he is not available then transferred to next available biker. This will help our sisters, friend, girlfriend, mother etc to live a secure and better life. I wish this helpline works great in all metro/mini-metro/small cities.

What are the best and the worst things about motorcycle touring in India?

best things- 1) You can experience all types of climate in different parts of country. 2) People are very helpful specially in Hilly areas(as per Leh tour exp.) 3) No strict restrictions. If you are wearing helmet and obeying traffic rules its very rare any cop will stop you.

Worst things- 1) Bad roads and terrorism to the destinations where Tourism is the reason for economy.
2) Drunk driving, rash driving, using lights on high beam by riders/drivers.
3) Using one way road both ways.

Golden Question : How do you feel when you ride?

When I ride I feel myself free from all restrictions, all tensions and I feel I am still a kid. Bike riding is a therapy, a meditation for me to get rid out of daily routine life. It helps me to understand myself better. I feel myself very confident while riding on bike. I love people staring at me when I am on my bike and on a long bike tour and Girls are giving smiles. It was a feeling which can't be earned in four wheeler. Getting one on one with nature like enjoying bike ride in rain, sunset, sunrise can never be done as good as on a bike. Best part of bike riding is when its a single road and your cruising at a speed of 100kms and above. It gives a feel of Freedom rider.
