    Default Alok Balsekar - Top 20 finalist - Biker of the Year 2011

    About Alok Balsekar Hardcore motorcycle collector. Unique and rare bikes are my interest. And I buy bikes only from the first lot ... ie their original year of manufacture. Also like touring and log rides on my RD350.

    His Video Intro

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

    A small website dedicated to out-of-production Indian bikes detailing sales brochures, owners and workshop manuals and parts catalogs. Sharing and enhancing my knowledge about motorcycles through interaction with others in the world!!!

    How can I contribute more in the future to the motorcycling community?

    By someday creating a very comprehensive DVD / website chronicling the history of our motorcycles. And maybe creating India's first motorcycle museum which will spur an academic angle to or motorcycling history, which, sadly is missing today

    My Touring Experience
    Total Kms. Clocked

    13 years of riding, with frequent trips to Pune / malshej ghat etc. I guess 100,000 km easy

    One dream ride that I want to do
    Ladakh ... the Mecca of all indian bikers ... and if time and finances permit, a trip around the world!

    Places I have ridden
    From Mumbai to Nashik, Pune, Malshej Ghat and a few other places

    Best touring Bike according to me
    RD350

    Tips to budding tourers
    - Basic tech knowledge of your bike - Riding in a defensive frame of mind - Carry Tools for simple repairs - Plan the trip well

    My Racing Experience
    About my racing career

    None. Bikes far too valuable to risk on the highways. BTW, Got my RD350 when I was 23 yrs old ... so have burned my share of rubber then
    Best Racing(track/off Road) Bike
    RD350 (I am so very biased)

    Tips To Budding Racers
    -Safety gear usage - The roads are not a race track
