About Me
When i was young my father said to me you are watching my Bikes and i think you want to ride them. He said there is time you may ride, but later, now get back to with you Books. Pateintly waited for my dreams to happen. Observed very keenly for a pretty long time each morning how Dad used to kick the lever a couple of times to give the Engine a momentum, which i gathered as Pumpimg. I am refering to Cz-Jawa 1952 250cc Maroon & Black gfited by a German in 1952 at I.N.S.Shivaji ( Naval Establishment) Lonavla. Watching Dad over a period of a few months, i felt i knew every thing about the starting & taking off. Gradually i used to start the Cz-Jawa each morning for Dad and loved to see him take off. The Jawa beat is so wonderfull to hear with a little smoke coming out from the silencer, i loved the petrol smell in it. One fine day feeling a bit shaky but nevertheless dared to ask my Dad a short ride and he did not hesitate, you know i happy i was, i only wished my friends were arround to watch me ride the Cz-Jawa, basically wanted my friends arround just to show off. Sometimes i used to even take the bike to my school i.e Kendriyalya Vidyalaya I.N.S.Shivaji Lonavla. Still learning to ride with extra speed and learnent a lesson, never to take sharp turns where there is sand. I skidded with amount of bruses & hert, got punished and my biking was off the road for quite a while. When i turned into a big boy, my promise was to restore the bike to its original and go far away places. The bike was restored in 1999 by Mr. Chandrakanth Thorat (Chandu) based in Quarter gate Pune. Since 1999 i have not opened the Engine and is going still strong. In 2005 with the Yezdi & Jawa bikers club from Mumbai, we rode from Ambala to Leh. covering a distance of about 4000 kms+. Not many riders encouraged me to ride this bike to Leh, but this iron butt was stubern as hard rock. She rode very well up to Leh Town. And the most interesting climax of my 1st long ride to Leh on my Cz-Jawa 250cc 1952 was felt on my way to "The Khardung La Pass measuring 18,380ft High. My bike refused to climb steep high mountains of K-TOP. She wld start well but not move forward. I needed enough time to think why the bike is not climbing. I being a mountaineer i told my biker friends to proceed ahead and to wait for me because my was un able to climb to high steep mountain to 'K'TOP. After the bikers left, i tried calling my friend mechnic but there was no range at that height. I was all alone for over an hour and not a sole i could see.Finally decided to get back to Leh Town to get my machine fixed.Started the bike and took a 'U'Turn, there was no starting problem with the bike, i rolled down the mountain and she kept going very well, i stopped immediately and wondered when she can roll down very easily why cant she climb upwards. I then tried my luck by loosening the Air Screw of carburattor to allow more air to pass into carb,and made an attempt to ride up the mountain to wards 'K'TOP. Beleive me i felt so happy and prayed she does not stop, and it so happened. From hear on the bike climbed higher and higher and faced no problem.After reaching 'K'TOP the Army jawans and visitors welcomed me and were amazed to the 1952 Cz-Jawa Plunger Suspension at this height. From 'K'TOP i started at 1.30pm solo for Numbra Valley which measures a distance of 110-kms. This beautuful streatch all along to Numbra Valley i rode solo crossing some colourfull mountains and secnic beauty. Finally reached Nymbra Valley and shocked my biker friends who were not expecting me to join up. Riding the PLUNGER SUSPENSION BIKE CZ-JAWA 1952 MAKE is no JOKE. I do not think and have not heared any one riding a Plunger Suspension Bike to this height in India or Abroad I rode to all the passes with out fear of break down. While on my way right from Manli onwards i made friends with most people arround. All were happy to see my bike because the had never seen any thing like this before. At PANG breathing was difficult for most my riders but i was safe. We were advised not to consume alcohole but the chill wind forced me to have my qota. I returned back to Leh and carried on to Kargil-Drass-Zozilla-Pass-Srinagar-Sonmarg-Patni-Top in Jammu and back to Pune. This was my 1st longest ride on my CZ-Jawa 1952 250cc. I wish to name this ride "The Ultimate Incrediable Climax Ride" of the decade. The Rewards i acheived, featured in "The Limca Book of Records" in 2007. Tata Motors awarded me a sum of Rs 10,000/- in 2010. Featured in various magazines like xBHP Dec issus 2010,Bike India in 2005,Hundustan Times Huderabad, Indian Express, Times of India etc. In 1978 i was 20 years and dared to make an attempt on my Royal En Field make 1962 in a Motor Cross race organised by PARA in Pune. I had no guts to inform MOM about Motor Cross Race. The Bike was looking half naked with out the Mud-guards,Hd-Lamp,T-Lamp & crash guards.My Mom was confused and angry and she decided not to allow me, she held on to the Bike and was standing in front to stop me, gradually she came at the rear wheel and held the U clamp fixed to the seat. Praying she takes off her hand for a second or so and i wld be gone. Luckly some guests arrived for a chat and she happened to take off her off her hands and i just did not look back and took off straight to the Motor Cross Venue in Hadapsar. At the race fared very well.In the 1st 5 lap round i was leading up to 4th lap but skidded over a hump and my race was over for the day.I enjoyed the race very much but cld not continue racing on a/c finance. I also done the Himalayan Odyssey in 2006 with the Royal En Field Co and never failed. How i encouraged my self to racing. One fine day a BABA GURU visited my house and was reading my Moms hand explaining her future nad she forced me to show my hand but was not interested. However i showed up my hand and the BABA said you are going to a very good racer take part in it. I was happy with the comments but i had no money to do up a race bike. I rode on my Royal En Field bike into the mountains of Leh,Sikkim-Bhutan-Shillong-Cherrapunji- Arunachal Pradesh. This all happened in 2009 & 2010. The special features of the vintage Royal En Field bike is, the Engine is Excellent when you get it done from the right person. I was always lucky and never faced any problems while riding. I love my Bullet because i can speak to her. Cheers.
And here is what I have to say to you...
 
Do I think I have contributed to the motorcycling community, however a
small way it may be?
As on today i have not heard any biker riding a PLUNGER SUSPENSION M/CYCLE to K-TOP.Not many have heard about my CZ-Jawa 1952 250cc and i have showed it to them in the magazines, news papers etc.I learned my biking on my Jawa while i was 9-10years old. I am using my bike quite frequently and do not like to keep in show room condition. i like to make it dirty with mud and slush and cleaning this muddy bike is lots of fun to me. My friends have also ridden my bike they only complaint about suspensions. Riding this bike K-TOP is no joke not no body has done it so far in the world. 1952 CZ-Jawa 250cc BMU-407 is the only bike in the to reach the higest motorable in the world. Many have liked the shape of my bike because i do my own maintainance.
 
How can I contribute more in the future to the motorcycling community?
I have advised all riders. Seek permission from parents/elders before start & that is blessing. Wear helmets & complete riding gears. Carry tool kit for repairs. Be a mechanic yourself & that is the best gift for a rider. Think good of every body in the group. Observe traffic rules. Carry Veh papers with PUC & Insurance. Lear to be asafe rider for the Riding Community.
