Trying out Castrol’s POWER1 CRUISE Engine Oil

Friction and heat are our twin enemies, robbing the engine of performance, and jeopardizing our trips in terms of reliability.

Handy guide to transporting your bike through VRL Logistics

A much-anticipated trip into the mountains sparked off our search for a reliable transporter, who’d take our precious bikes from Bombay to Chandigarh.

Royal Enfield’s Riding Jackets: there’s one for every reason and season

From the Cast Iron Electra and the UCE Thunderbird, the Continental GT and now the Himalayan, Royal Enfield’s motorcycles are an unexplainable attraction.

Monsoon skies: Mumbai

Mumbai grows a few shades more beautiful each monsoon. Sure, our hardships increase too, but there’s no denying the fact that we also get that rare break from the drab grays which dominate the view.  Couldn’t help but stop & stare at this beautiful sight as I was crossing the bridge. The colourful skies and…

खिडकीतली बाग

अम्मा म्हणायची की त्या लहानपणीच्या गावच्या ट्रिपांमध्ये होती सुरूवात! पण खरंतर लालमातीचं वेड कधी मनात बसलं, कधी रक्तात घुसलं हे कळलच नाही. वर्षे गेली, पण शोध काही संपेना. बघता बघता, तेच वेड जणू काही घुसलं कुंडीत! कोकणातल्या बागेचं स्वप्न मात्र जवळ येऊन सुद्धा हुलकावण्या देत राहिलं. निराशेने मन भरलं आणि आयुष्याच्या अनेक झुंझीत गेलं ते…

The first Sunday of April is reserved on the calendar as #OneRide Day. This year marked the Seventh Edition of celebrating the camaraderie that comes from owning and riding a Royal Enfield motorcycle. As motorcyclists, we need but a reason half-an-excuse to throttle out.

A neo-classical motorcycle affair

When you’re a 20 year old motorcycle, there’s always something that’s going bust on it. It could be the meters or the brakes, the lights or the carburettor. It could even be some nuts & bolts that suddenly decided they’d had enough and decide to hop off. But as long as you keep that 2T-Fuel…

Cadbury Gems 

Something about Cadbury’s Gems that brings a smile to the face. Their colourful appearance, the sound they make when you shake the packet, that distinctive crunch when you bite into them – everything is instantly recognisable. There’s even different ways of eating them. One is where you munch them down. The other is where you…

Broken Beauty

  Bruised, she lay still on the ground. She knew she’d never meet her favourite flowers or soar into the bright blue skies again. But she put her pain aside & spread those wings one last time, for she wanted to show everyone just how beautiful this broken world can be… 

Spicing things up in 2017

2016 was an eventful one to say the least and this year is all about turning the heat up on things. Pushing the envelope, exploring new stuff & being on the limit.
