with all the bikers here, i dont think i can find a better place to post this. so here goes.
I live in bangalore and i got bitten by the biking bug 1-2 years back. all i have been able to do is couple of rides for few hundred KMs, max from b'lore to ooty. Since then i have been trying to find a buddy/partner who would ride with me regularly. After begging, asking planning with many a folks, things haven't worked out. Yeah there are biking clubs and groups but somehow i dunno i dont feel at home there. I see a lot of subgroups there and somehow i am not able to find the person i am looking for. I am also not somebody who would decide on friday night for a ride on saturday. there are other things in life which i need to take care so this doesnt work. So what if i dont have the typical 'biker habits'? discovering touring is the best thing that has happened to me. i dont ride like a maniac nor like turtle and by the way i am in my 30s . but dont worry i dont behave old or preach to youngsters
i have read and heard of many guys who ride solo, but i feel it becomes boring and what if i really need someone for any urgency (fall, flat tyre, etc).
my idea of touring is atleast a 500-750km (round trip) once a month. and 1-2K km atleast 3 times a year. well this is just an idea it can be more but not less.
Of course getting Lehd is there somewhere on my mind but i really want to visit other parts of india before that and to start with i can go all around the south of it before i think of really long and adventurous rides across the country.
So pls if you are also someone like me and would like to hang along PM me and lets gets riding.
