Adventure,Biking, Risk and me.
First of allI would like to define me as a risky (more adventures ) biker who likes to ridebike for constantly check my risk taking ability. My romance with biking beginsalmost 10 years back and still continues though I have car. I like to ride iton open highway as well as in dense forest and also on the sea shore.
Since mychildhood I have a dream of riding royal Enfield or rajdoot. I have ride it somany times, but still it is far from my reach. One more dream included inthousands that I will ride my Enfield in the white rann of kutch OR/AND at Leh (withmy close friend PARTH) at more than 150 speed. I ride bike risky, speed is notrisky but the my judgments are risky. Like taking 70 degree turn at 40-50 speed, break at verylast moment and that also if at all necessary.
Currently Ihave Yamaha bike, which I ride from almost 7 years without any problem. I had riddenthis one into jungle also, into the heavy slopes also and in many places wherenormal person do not dare to drive. Just two days back, me and my wife went toour favorite spot, where I used to ride the bike at 60 speed but in denseforest like place in Gandhinagar behind Sachivalaya. Those who are fromGandhinagar will have a idea about the same.
I would liketo share one of experience where I had 10 stitches and minor crack in my left leg.That was the my first job and night shifts. I used to come home by 11 PM and bythe road where one big circle comes in between. Every day I used to take fullspeed turn at that circle, I did that for almost 1 month with variation inspeed and in degree of turn and finally on one day I decided to take full 90degree turn with 40KM speed at the same place. There was a slight misjudgmentfrom my side and simply collide with the circle concrete wall. There was noperson nearby 2 KM area, I know that whatever I have to, I have to do it byown. Though I had severe cut and crack in my right leg (where we used to kick),I kicked the bike, ride the bike and reach my home (which is 3KM away). Then byreaching home, my brother immediately took me to the hospital and stitched.
But still Iused to take same turns at same speed whenever I got chance. Whomever sitsbeside me on my bike either does not want to sit next time or love to sit everytime. One more memorable experience of biking is to ride the bike on seashore(at Dumas with Dipak Lad on his bike).
So biking islike fun, risk, adventures to me, I find any one form with every ride and thatmakes me happier though I have back pain(during long rides) problem.
Will shareother experience/experiments with bike/car in future posts. You are welcome toshare your experiences.
