About Me
I got introduced to biking 3 years back in july 2008 with my first bike XCD 125. Within the first 27 days of its purchase, I took it on a 2000 KMS long trip i.e. Pune - Bangalore - Mysore, also making it my 1st biking trip of my life. Since then I have taken various trips like Pune - Mahabaleshwar, Pune - Goa - Mangalore, Pune - Shirdi, Pune - Alibaug - Kashid - Murud and many more on the same XCD....I feel and believe that biking is a lifestyle and teaches many things like management, control and also gives immense pleasure and adventure. I believe that biking is not about high end, powerful machines..its more about one's own spirit and by doing all of my trips on a XCD 125, I simply love it!
 
Do I think I have contributed to the motorcycling community, however a
small way it may be?
Yes, I have promoted safe biking among my peers and also encouraged them to take biking as a passion and hobby. I have also removed fears from many people's mind by actually doing a trip with them!
 
How can I contribute more in the future to the motorcycling community?
I plan to hold more trips - long, medium and short and would also encourage people to take biking as a lifestyle. I also plan to conduct various bootcamps on the same and promote safe biking and educate people on the real aspects of biking. I want people to understand that biking is not the rash driving many do on city roads but a sport which requires the same level of knowledge, analysis and practice like of any other sport!

Tips to budding tourers
Plan well, talk to fellow bikers over the web or in person, understand your bike, wear safety gears, always have your route map with you, carry essential things like medicine, keep yourself hydrated and eat light and healthy and avoid biking between 10:00 PM to 05:00 AM until you are sure of the regions you pass by at night
