    Default Urvashi Patole - Top 20 finalist - Biker of the Year 2011

    About Urvashi: "Hi, This is Urvashi Patole. I am a Bikerni and proud to be one. I started my journey around 6 years ago and it has been adventure of a lifetime. More than smooth tarmacs I am crazy about off-roading. Nothing like a rocky road, some fresh air, a splash of mud and beautiful scenery to get you going. I believe a true Biker is someone who loves with all their heart, is generous, is always willing to go another kilometre, believes in honor , loves food like crazy, has integrity, is always willing to help, a biker always stands his/her ground but doesn't mind making way for a speeding idiot on the road;we know it's not worth the effort because someone is waiting for us at home, a biker backs other riders when need be, motorcycles are everything to them, accepts anyone up on two wheels as their own, rides in rain or in sunshine. My passionate love for motorcycles shall endure forever and I am proud to be lady motorcyclist."

    Her video intro:

    Do I think I have contributed to the motorcycling community, however a
    small way it may be?

    I hope to believe that I have. I make sure to always wear protective gear like a helmet and always advise youngsters and other riders on the road to do the same. I follow traffic-signals and try and set an example for others as well. I am a part of Save Pune Traffic Movement ( SPTM) and have taken part in helmet awareness rallies. Another part in which I have contributed is by kick-starting the first-ever all-female motorcylist association in India called 'The Bikerni'. It as an association where like-minded ladies from all-over India come together under one roof. We go on rides, we share our problems, we learn new things from each other and best of all we plan to work for women empowerment in India. We have lots of brave women who just need an example to come out of their shell. I hope to do so by growing this community of women motorcyclists. We already have got a lot of good response and encouragement. We hope to utilize our popularity to help women in India.

    How can I contribute more in the future to the motorcycling community?
    By encouraging more females to start riding. I aim to encourage women to embrace adventure in their lives and live life to the fullest.

    [B]My Touring Experience
    Total Kms. Clocked[/B]
    15,000 kms(Touring only)

    Best Ride
    The Great Indian Ride with Mahindra Two Wheelers. It was an adventurous tour of Goa, Maharashtra, MP and Gujarat in which we clocked 7000 kms in 28 days. Shall never forget this wonderful ride. It was a mix of smooth rides, bumpy potholes, snaky ghats and lots of off-roading as well.

    One dream ride that I want to do
    I would to cover the whole of India alone on my motorcycle with a camcorder and then would love to ride in Africa.

    Places I have ridden

    Chandigarh, Manali,Rohtang Pass.,MP, Gujarat, Maharashtra and Goa.

    Best touring Bike according to me
    As of now can only afford a RE and thats real cool for touring but in the future I wouldn't mind touring on a Honda Goldwing or a BMW K1200 GT

    Tips to budding tourers
    Just enjoy the experience,relax and thank god because it is a blessing to be able to have the freedom to tour long-distances and explore new places. Do carry a first-aid kit with you, a swiss army knife and a torch. Make sure you have a phone which catches network well and has a long battery life. Carry extra fuel and make sure you know the basic of fixing your own bike. Carry lots of water and some dry snacks. Protective gear.

    My Racing Experience
    About my racing career

    I am into Dirt-Track racing and I won the PARA Dirt-track Championship in the Women's category in May 2010. I have done some unofficial drag-racing but haven't done any circuit racing as of yet.

    Best Racing(track/off Road) Bike
    KTM 125 cc hands down

    Tips To Budding Racers

    As i said earlier, revel in the experience. Don't be daunted by your opponents but at the same time don't be over-confident. Believe in your capabilities. In dirt-track racing, braking is a tricky business and you should know when to stick your foot out to balance while turning. And if you don't win, don't worry there's always a next time. Just practice diligently. Protective gear mandatory.

    My Stunting Experience
    About my stunting career

    I stunt but not into it passionately. I can do few basic stunts like a wheelie, a chainsaw, circle burnouts, human compass and a few more. I guess i really didn't get that much into stunting.

    Stunt Shows/competitions I Have Done
    I had auditioned for Pulsar Stunt Mania season one and two. Got out at the interview stage.

    Best Stunt Bike According To Me
    I love Chris Pfeiffer's BMW F800R.

    Tips To Budding Racers
    Wear protective gear. Safety first above everything else.

    My Other Experience
    Race/ Engineer Support
    Polo Cup Pune Round. Flag Marshall and Group Leader of the first -all-female Marshall team in India.

    Mechanic/ Service Etc.
    Basic Servicing know-how.

    Wait? We have to vote again... I wonder what happened in the meantime while I was recovering from Jaundice these days (still am recovering actually).

    I voted once again, but I wonder how many times we have to vote... maybe once more for top 6 (?).
