Your motorcycle demands maintenance the same way as your love would

The motorcycling gang here has been trading tags with moto-pals over the various ‘challenges’. We’ve played a dozen rounds of moto-bingo, washed our gear, cleaned our helmets and are trying to stay sane, one past-ride post at a time. At the end of the day, when the head’s done spinning, I hope we realize, our…

Moto-Luggage Adventures – Part 1

When it comes to packing for 2-Wheeled travel, some are naturally gifted at packing, while the rest figure out the puzzle, one piece and trip at a time.

Chasing Sunsets

I’d say there are two kinds of people in the world. One set loves chasing sunrises, the other, prefers to chase it as it sets. I grew up being in the first category, but crossed over when I realised, I didn’t really like it when the temperatures rose. Chasing sunsets also leads me to sights…

Fading Memories – Fiat Uno

Spotted a Fiat Uno on one of those essential shopping runs. Got transported back in time, to a few decades ago.

My Bullet Tale: the Stripes & Sunshine Affair

A motorcycle today is infinitely more efficient & reliable, not to mention powerful & loaded with tech, than their predecessors of yore! There’s one aspect though that sits uneasy in the head and that’s the growing creep of tech. Some of it is inevitable, a bit is desirable even. But the heart still yearns for…

Ensuring the right riding line into the Forty-Oh & beyond

What’s there to ride a bike? You get on it, thumb the starter (or kick start it) and zoom off, right? If you speak to the experienced and expert folks, they’d tell you that there are plenty ways in their ‘riding made easy’ arsenal that they like to use. Some pack light and minimalist while…

Royal Enfield: Pure Motorcycling at heart

Back when I was a scrawny school kid, I’d curried favour with one of dad’s friends for a chance to ride his bike. As I struggled to even kick-start it, dad’s friend could clearly see through my lie of knowing how to ride one. Yet, for some unknown reason, he kicked it to life and…
