The Past beats inside me like a second heart – John Banville

The eyes have seen so much, the mind has registered so many things…with the kind of enthusiastic people who have been with me on my journey over the last year and beyond, I am trying to make a conscious effort to showcase my rides and the travels that have taken me across all the six continents and also the journeys across #Incredible India!

Currently, and possibly the only Indians, with my ride partner Basavaraj, to have circumnavigated the world in 47 days, covering 42038 km across all the six continents back in 1994!

I will try my best to encapsulate my experiences with quick notes and pictures with a hope that you will join in my travels and possibly undertake one of your own.

While you are here, you may wish to hear me at my first exposure on a very niche platform, The Motorcycle Travelers Meet 2015 (#MTM2015), categorized as a Rare Breed Speaker.

There has been no looking back in my experience sharing since this one.

I currently ride the DSK Benelli 600 GTS fondly christened as #Armstrong and have been enjoying my travels on this, since my wife, Anitha helped me get one back in June 2015. Together we have been travelling a bit, amidst a job that I have with one of the largest financial institutions in the world.

People often ask me how do I manage time for my rides and work… simple… Work – Life – Balance, loads of discipline, which was nurtured into me during my National Cadet Corps (NCC) days, including a strong will power and a positive mindset.Right from the All India Cycle Expedition with Gururaj Budhya, to the World Cycle Expedition that I called off from Italy, to two back to back time capsule rides on my Yezdi to the Circumnavigation done over two decades and two years ago…… getting back to riding again over the last many months has been pure bliss!
