Riding and visiting off beat places, is my passion.
My Bikes: Std 350 (1963), Machismo 500, Electra 350 (Customized by Vardenchi), HD Super low and Yamaha Roadstar.
I am a Merchant Mariner by profession and now 53 years young. (1959 Model)
During my younger days in college I always wanted to own a bike and the moment I got the means to own one I got my first bike in the year 1993 which was a Hero Honda 100 cc bike. But I always wanted to own a Royal Enfield which I did in the year 1996. ( Lightning 535 ).
My first meeting with the member of Inddiethumper was at one of their meets in Carter Road and thereafter I developed my passion for rides. I have been with the thumpers to places where I would maybe never visit if I did not have the passion for riding and bonding with fellow bikers.
All my rides with the thumpers have been memorable and among the rides I cherish the Ride to Khardung La the most as I feel this is the one ride which tests the men and their machines’ capabilities and without doubt the tolerance level, patience and capabilities of the pillions as well. I can confidently say that this is one dream ride for all passionate bikers.
Because of my profession I am not able to ride as much as I want to, hence I make the most of it and ride as much as possible with the Thumpers with my Royal Enfields and also with some other riding groups with my HD and Yamaha and some solo rides as well.
I am lucky that my better half does not mind my rides and most of my rides till date she has been my pillion, even to the top of the world – Khardung La.
I have visited so many off beat places because of my rides which maybe I would never visit in normal course.
AND OFF COURSE BECAUSE OF MY PASSION FOR RIDES I HAVE MET SOME VERY GOOD AND NICE PEOPLE AS MY FELLOW BIKERS AND NOW THEY ARE LIKE A PART OF MY FAMILY.
I have even met with few accidents and couple of them could have been quite bad but still my passion for rides have never diminished and I would always go on riding and riding and riding and r>>>>>>…d till the day I can…………..
