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

Being a woman from a small community, where society does not really appreciate or accept the fact that women are capable like any other men to ride. I would say it is indeed a marvelous experience. The passion I have for riding is beyond words to describe. But the passion I have is stronger than the thought of what community would have to reckon. I believe that riding is just not about getting to your destination; it’s about the obsession of a human mind towards the machine. I would love to go for a ride just to free my mind and feel at ease riding on the bike. Most of all I feel myself, strong, determined and confident. Everyone needs to feel love; well I believe that even machines need to be loved. Only one with an obsession will bond with her motorcycle and so motorcycling to me is more than just riding, let alone being a woman.

How has motorcycling changed you and your life?

Never did I expect that motorcycling alone could change anyone’s life or bring any positive changes to our society. Few years after my first engagement being a motorcyclist and the first girl member of a safe biking group (Meghalaya XbHp), I realized that motorcycling alone has brought a great impact changing lives, including mine. It changed my life, giving me the ability to see motorcycling far beyond then just riding. It has helped me understand myself better and build my confidence and respect, not being differentiated in an environment that was once thought to be a man’s world. Motorcycling just didn’t change my life but it also let me help my fellow women to have a brighter and better view on being a woman motorcyclist.

How would you justify the inherent dangers and risk involved in motorcycling?

When one follows his / her passion, then there is nothing that can stop the person from cherishing it. This passion differs from one person to the other, but all face challenges in various forms. Similarly, with biking, dangers and risks are just hurdles that one crosses with appropriate safety measures and protection in order to relish the joy of riding. The importance of those safety measures and protection should always be kept in mind by every biker and spread amongst fellow bikers who are not aware of it. They appear in different forms in various environments but when tackled with apt measures, it enriches the spirit within. Without any of it, there is no way of challenging oneself to take it to the next level and keep getting better at it.

Tell us briefly about your 2 most memorable incidents involving you as a motorcyclist?

The passion for motorcycling increased since I first started riding by the age of 20 I was In love with the Yamaha RX100 so I decided to try out a new level of insanity on the motorcycle where I popped my first Wheely, I had an awesome and wonderful experience. Well the second most memorable incident would be a trip on my Honda Dio from Bangalore to mysore though I’ve gone for many other trip I picked this as because at that moment I was feeling the bike and I touch a speed of 98 on the meter at the fact that the full speed meter of a Honda Dio is just 100. So for me to achieve 98speed was insanely amazing.

What are the best and the worst things about being a motorcyclist, especially a female motorcyclist, in India?

In India, there still seems to be a general perception of male dominance in various fields. Being a female motorcyclist is certainly breaking this trend in India, displaying the ability of this sex to be on par with the male motorcyclists. This leads to the best thing about being a female motorcyclist in India, which is the opportunity to be an inspiration to other females to get into this field and be on equal terms with the male motorcyclists. There is an overall elevation of the female sex in the perception of many Indians who unfortunately still feel that only the males are capable of excelling in this environment. The worst thing about being a female motorcyclist is the lack of support that is shown by family and society that impacts the induction of more female motorcyclists. This negative spirit when fought becomes positive spirit.

Golden Question : How do you feel when you ride?

When you have a passion for ridding the feeling is unexplainable. Its just not a ride that you need to get you to your destination but a feeling of freedom,peace,the chance to get to feel the machine expressing your love towards it even if the rest of the world sleeps your bike is a thing that would give you company be it night day years or forever it will always be loyal so while riding on a journey it will never fail you it will take you there this feeling is the best i feel while riding my motorcycle and most of all just being me ..
