#HomeIsWhereBikeIs

#HomeIsWhereBikeIs is a celebration of the integral role that motorcycles play in our lives. These machines are a part of our families and homes. This  is again a unique project conceptualized and executed by xBhp in association with Castrol POWER1 and BoConcept India and is our take on the manner in which these bikes add to the joy and splendour of a motorcyclist’s life. 

In this series, we shot a number of unique and exotic bikes and we will be presenting all of them to you one by one. 

And finally, the Ninja H2 is back on the day 15. 

Harley Davidson Nightrod is back on Day #14.

On popular demand, Big Dog K9 is back on Day 13 of #homeIsWhereBikeIs

The Custom Honda Blackbird makes its reentry into #HomeisWhereBikeis! 

Day 11 of the #HomeisWhereBike is shows the return of Indian Chief Vintage. 

The bike #10 is the gorgeous Ducati 959 Panigale. The mid-size superbike gives all the adrenaline pumping rush of a liter class, with the ease of use of supersport bikes.

Day 9 of #homeIsWhereBikeIs shows a #HondaBlackbird. a legend by itself, made even more legendary by the work of a Delhi based enthusiast. Making this one of the fastest and scariest nakeds around!

 Some of the text entries which were special:

Home is where the bike is because like humans bikes also have a soul, humans need a home for resting after a long days work and same way a bike needs rest after a long days rough ride!
A bike is your soul mate in journey of life filled with ups and downs . You got to treat it the same way as it does to you in this journey. #PartnerForLife

#HomeIsWhereBikeIs because both home my home and my bike have witnessed my loneliness, my tears all alone, they both have me taught some important life lessons like when life throws you into corners, lean through it 👊

Dilip Kumar Saraswat

#HomeIsWhereBikeIs because home is a place where one lives especially as a member of a family so a bike is definitely family. We have a bullet since 1995 and the bike has been with me for a while. So, in honor of celebrating years of being with the family I’d definitely say I am so blessed to have a bike which is so close to my heart. One can share life’s joys and sorrows just by going for a ride and by doing so I can explore more of myself by experiencing the thrills and the calmness.I have no idea what I would be doing right now if it weren’t for my bike. @CastrolBiking @RoyalEnfield @xBhpMotorcycling

 #HomeIsWhereBikeIs because when you are on the saddle, you are living in the moment, no past, no future. Just you and your machine following life itself. Under the helmets there is no discrimination, just fellow riders sharing the same love and passion.

#homeiswherebikeis because bikes won’t give up on you like human does, it’s more like a love story in which the relationship is eternal, a chance to live a perfect fairytale in which your partner wouldn’t leave you and more over home is where heart is so when your heart is binded with a beautiful machine that is where your home is! 🏍️
