    Cool The two wheeled oddyssey

    What is it that we call as passion? As per dictionary definition ‘passion is just a strong feeling’. Anything that you do with a strong feeling can be dubbed as something done with passion and, yes, riding is indeed done with passion. But is it just that much? Have you never feel felt like there is a lot more to riding? Well, are you confused? Don’t be.




    If you could take out your bike regardless of the weather conditions, road conditions or any other discouraging factor and go on a trip just to feel the rhythm of your machine, to feel that vibration of the piston in your bones, to be yourself for a while..if you could explore a new road from where everyone else stopped… it is only because riding is lot more than just something done with passion for you.. well, it is like that for me at least.

    Like the quote that says “the time you spend on your bike is the only time that you spend living”, I have felt that the moments I spent on my bike were the only moments worth in my life. Twisting the throttle a little further, revving my engine up and seeing the rpm reach the red lines have always helped me to completely forget anything that could pull me down. My bike has always been my best cure for depression. They say that don’t ride when you are under mental stress but I find this contradictory because every time I saw my baby speeding up, all my stress would get dissolved in her graceful performance. In a matter of time, it would just be me and my bike in my world. It would seem to me that nothing else really matters.

    I know that it is little too much of bragging up there but i thought it would be difficult for me to introduce myself without explaining what riding means to me. Excuse me if it bored you. I am John, a native of Kerala. I recently completed my BTech from Bangalore and i started my riding life with a Libero G5. To be honest, I wasn't really sure about my riding enthusiasm until I owned my first official bike (the libero was passed to me from my brother) the mighty R15. Until then, it was just about traveling and exploring new places for me and I never thought my journeys would feel incomplete without a two wheeler then. Just like most Indian parents, my parents too were reluctant to buy me a bike and it was only by the end of second year, I got my baby. However, they were stubborn that they wouldn't give me extra pocket money every month just because I got a bike and I had to cut down on my other expenses to fuel my ride . The more I could cut down was on food and I would proudly say that I lost 15Kgs after I started riding this black beauty and the first thing that my brother told me after getting placed in a company is that "now you can go for rides after eating food" .... Yes I am that crazy about riding and I have successfully executed a handful of rides in south India abiding to the financial limitations of a BTech student.



    I do solo rides mostly but i also enjoy group rides as long as the fellow riders are matured enough and responsible... I also write a blog where I share my travel Pictures and here is the link to that
    bikercult.blogspot.in .... earlier I used to consult xbhp only for getting route suggestions and for checking road conditions through recent posts and it was only lately that I understood, sharing my experiences might help other riders also.... hoping to contribute to the xbhp community something worthy..... cheers brothers
