    Default The Great India Collectors’ Ride: Day 1: Delhi to Jaipur

    The Great India Collectors’ Ride

    The Reason to Ride:

    The Great India Collectors’ Ride is an idea to bring together the motorcyclists of the country through the one thing we love the most – our bikes. And to show our love for our bikes, xBhp is going around the country collecting a plethora of different objects and articles donated by motorcycling clubs or sold to us by bikers across the country. We will then take all these items we collect from around the country and build a larger than life motorcycle sculpture. This sculpture will not just be a tale of the ride and the articles we collect along the way, but also each unique person we meet and article we collect will have a story of its own. And we go in search of these bikers and their many stories. The Freedom Motorcycle as it will be called, will be a collection of not just physical bits put together, but also the putting together of the stories of these bikers and making one great tale of the brotherhood of Indian Motorcycling. If any biker or biking group would like to sell a ‘part’ which they feel would be a good addition to the Freedom Motorcycle then visit collectorsride.com and be a part of history!

    Day 1 25th May: Delhi to Jaipur

    The flag off for the ride happened on the 25th in New Delhi, from the headquarters of Suzuki India in Vasant Kunj. On a cool early Sunday morning, bikers of Delhi sacrificed their Sunday morning breakfast rides to meet and wish the xBhp team luck on this long and beautiful journey.

    The meet started off with xBhpians of the Delhi Chapter rolling in on their metal steeds and with their arrival the mood of the morning was set. Laughter and banter filled the air, as bikers connected with each other and watched as the big bikes arrived. GODS and Born2Ride were the other biking groups who were there to see the GICR team off.

    The Samsung captures it all

    Sundeep Gajjar aka Sunny aka Motographer kicked off proceedings by introducing and explaining the theme of this ride and how Olx.in has powered xBhp to connect with bikers from across the country. Motorcycling gives a person the taste of real freedom, and Olx.in gives people the freedom to connect with buyers and sellers without the hassle of middlemen. The underlying focus for both is freedom and thus the bike to be built will be called The Freedom Motorcycle. Shell Advance, the performance partner for the GICR, will help xBhp and its steeds beat the heat and give the best performance required by the bikes. xBhp has been given the freedom to ride on the road by Suzuki Motorcycles, the motorcycle partner for the GICR, who have provided the team with four exceptional bikes in the form of the Suzuki Hayabusa, the Suzuki V-Strom 1000 and two Suzuki Inazumas. Four very capable bikes to tackle the roads of the country. Land Rover provided the GICR team with two Luxury SUVs, the very stylish Range Rover Evoque and the top of the line Range Rover Autobiography as backup vehicles for this 10000 km journey across the country. Samsung Mobiles has given us the latest Samsung Galaxy S5 to be able to blog and update on the go, with the phone turning out to be a useful navigation device as well, when moving around in cities. xBhp riders will stay cool this summer with Sunshield Apparel from Wrangler, the latest from the apparel brand. The riders will stay safe with riding gear provided by Zeus Motorcycle Gear, with the good quality jackets, pants, gloves and boots of the company.

    The 9 member team travelling across India introduced themselves and spoke about their love for motorcycling. The team is comprised of Sundeep Gajjar, Sunil Gupta, Sandeep Goswami, Ashish Guliani, Himanshu Gupta, Mohit Pal, Abhishek Bhatt, Avinash Singh and Avinash Noronha. These bikers will be traversing the 10000 km journey across the country, flying the xBhp flag high and meeting up with as many bikers and groups as possible. Sunny then invited Dr. Arun Thareja, president of GODS and Ikhjot Singh Bhasin president of Born2Ride to speak. Bittooji of Bittoo Suzuki, Abhishek Upadhyay of OLX and Suresh Kumar of Suzuki also wished the team luck on this wonderful journey.

    Superbikers

    After many photographs, including one epic selfie of the team, everyone recharged themselves on Red Bull and sandwiches, before the team finally left for the day’s destination Jaipur. The team halted in Manesar and again 50 km before the pink city, where they finally reached the venue for the meeting point in Jaipur. Rock Café was the destination of choice for meeting up the biking clubs of Jaipur, where the xBhp team met and interacted with the Airborne Riders of Jaipur. It was a good evening with the xBhpians and AR guys swapping stories of their experiences of riding, the problems, changing scenarios of the motorcycling world etc. The Airborne Riders are a 10 year old group of Bulleteers who don’t just ride, but also believe in giving back to society in whatever little way they can. 10 members of this group would also be heading out to Leh this year on their trusted steeds. xBhp wished them luck with the same enthusiasm that they gave to the riding team. Airborne Riders will also be participating in the Freedom Motorcycle and will be sending an item of their choice to be incorporated in the final sculpture. Later in the evening the team also met up with a few of the HOGS of Jaipur, before they called it a night after a long and tiring, yet extremely rewarding day.

    Ok so out of curiosity. I'm here in this thread.

    I see posting a full detailed chart of date and City maybe not possible.
    But is it possible to post Something before Mumbai Arrival ?

    Mumbai Holds a lot and lot of Diehard xBHP fans and Riders.
    Surely would love a quick meetup and a Big Selfie !

    I'm myself from "UP14" but being in Mumbai from last 2 years. I'm now a Mumbai xBHP team wala.
    So if possible. Do post some info before Mumbai.

    Thanks!
