Being ME !!
« on: July 03, 2018, 09:42:41 AM »
I have been thinking about putting my thoughts on ink for quite sometime.

Here's a little insight into why  a descent amount of bloggers write, some are just upset, depressed or want to say something to the world that they could not otherwise. I have been through that phase already. Today I am an outsider, a passionate rider, a Comedian and a firm believer in learning from my mistakes. Now, that was a serious statement! Nevertheless, enough of the that, don't you think?

Here, I am. 9 years of solid touring, crazy roads, memorable trips, a tonne of friends and a beautiful experience that cannot be summed into a single article and in other news, I am still single and happily fooling around on two wheels! LOL

I started off as a 18 year old with a Driving License and no idea what to do with it and the funny part of it being I had a "book" that was issued by the Indranagar RTO. (Digitalization did happen I Guess??  :o )

I come from a humble background, an Underdog, I have had to work my way up the ladder, be it bikes or professional life. I have been shown the door and kicked out more times than I can remember. However, none of this stopped me from getting to where I am today, "The Motivation" was always the urge to buy a bigger machine and to never run out of money for Fuel.

I started with a Kinetic Honda ZX. Back in the early days, what used to be a regular tuition class would end up being a run for the money. From Indiranagar to Nandi Hills for Tea at the hill top and back before 9:30 for my attendance at home.  :P I guess that's when I learnt there was a Squid inside me that till date creeps out on highways. i have mellowed down though, I mean, I kind off have, or something like that.... anyways........ My transition was slow and steady, Kinetic ZX to a Pulsar 150 UG 4 then the Pulsar 220, Classic 350, Himalayan (Short lived Dream) and now the Dominar 400. ( I have been a Bajaj fanboy haven't I :P )

I have never been crazy over Mods, never worried about speeds but i believe in knowing my machine to my best abilities. Actually, I made up my mind to learn these things after my first ride to Leh. It was unplanned, bitten by ego and a solid push to the finish, I probably fell down every chance i got.  ;D ;D ;D and worst, I took the Lead's words too serious. I did it on a RE 350 Classic nevertheless. It wouldnt be wrong to call the "Classic" the first Indian Tourer. (Still my opinion)

I have travelled the lengths of the Country but never shied away from a challenge, no matter the pain I will meet u in the next stop for Chai  :P Somehow, there is still the urge to ride longer and farther to a place nobody has seen or been to, camp under the stars with your always lovable packet of "Maggi" boiling on one side and just stare at that 2 wheeled beauty.

Unfortunately, I have lost the plot on why I was writing this thanks to a couple meetings that popped up. (This the hard part of the "Work - Life" balance nonsense!)

However, At the end of it all after every ride, I have always wondered, ?What do people say about me when I am not around??. There is not much you can do about this thought can you?

Be yourself, Ride for Fun, promote Safe Riding, Live for that extra mile on the ODO. There is no alternate to the wind blowing hrough your hair.

Godspeed!

To the Admin Team of DOCB:

Thank you for accepting me, my apologies for the torture I can be at Rides. I am learning and hope I am as good as all you someday!. (I am very thankful, that there is no BOT here on the forum  :D :D :D :D :D :D )

See You soon Gentlemen !!

I guess you had named me Thanos but HULK will do as well. I need to make an Excel sheet just to keep track of all these names.

Thank you for the love Sharath :) Pleasure Riding with you. Untill next time  ;)

Hi Rohit.. how beautifully you put up the content from beginning till end.. completed reading in one go and went and read again to make sure did not miss anything..
some things i really liked are the words you mentioned.
""The Motivation" was always the urge to buy a bigger machine and to never run out of money for Fuel
this is the same feeling I have now, that keeps me motivated and being part of DOCB makes me a better rider everyday
Liked the way you described your Leh ride too.

superb bro.. will  await more from you.

Thank You DC, I did meet you the day before WMD at Adeeshwar. I was with Sri and Rohith Mohan. You probably wouldn't remember me but I was the guy running around with the Jacket and a Big Tummy :P
