About Me
My fascination for biking started at a very young age when I'd sit on the tank of dad's 50cc Explorer bike and emulate MotoGP scenes. Started riding the same bike just after 16, taking it to the nearby market. On my 18th birthday at 9AM I was the second in line at the RTO for applying for two-wheeler license. Between getting my license and buying my own bike, went through the metamorphosis from a young, rash and negligent rider to become a sensible rider and a road safety advocate. xBhp was the catalyst in this metamorphosis, besides which I gained lots of friends from across the country.
 
Do I think I have contributed to the motorcycling community, however a
small way it may be?
1. For the last two consecutive years, me and the xbhp TVM fraternity along with regional sponsors and Traffic authorities organized events to promote Helmet Awareness and Road Safety among general public in Trivandrum city. 2. Riding around in riding jackets, gloves and other gear, always attracts attention and questions. When ever possible, I explain to the curious guys why I use them, how they protect me.
 
How can I contribute more in the future to the motorcycling community?
"Catch them young." - I believe that creating awareness among the youth even before they hit the saddle will be the most effective way to improve the general motor cyclist etiquette.
