Dr Nandakumar Thogarapalli Munusamy
#xBhpThinkTalks Powered by Lenovo ThinkPadP1: It is extremely important for a motorcyclist to have a good health to ride for longer distances and for many years, and it is even more important to stay healthy during these times to fight against the Coronavirus pandemic. In this iteration of #xBhpTalks, We talked to someone who is 82 and yet, an epitome of fitness. In addition to that, he is an avid motorcyclist and does Yoga like its no one’s business… Dr Nandakumar Thogarapalli Munusamy, someone who is perhaps the best example of the adage Bikers grow younger.
Mr Girdhari Chandak
#xBhpThinkTalks Powered by Lenovo ThinkPad P1: It is extremely important for a motorcyclist to have good head protection but in the times that we are witnessing today, it is important for everyone to keep themselves protected from the COVID-19 pandemic. Vega Helmets has taken up the noble cause of providing safety gear for healthcare professionals and other people who are on the frontlines in this war against Coronavirus. And so, we spoke to the MD of Vega helmets/Axor Helmets India, Mr Girdhari Chandak.
Winning any race is not a small task. No matter how big or small. But when you are talking about races at the highest level, pun intended in this case, then it makes it even more special. Most motorcyclists have heard of the Isle of Man TT and MotoGP, but only a few have heard about the Pikes Peak located in America. It was perhaps made most famous by Ducati who got out their Pikes Peak special edition Multistrada a couple odd years ago. And so, in this edition of #xBhpTalks, we have with the Rennie Scaysbrook, the first Australian to win one of the toughest and most dangerous road races in the world, one that took the life of the man who motivated Ducati to make the Pikes Peak special edition Multistrada in the first place. We also talked to Rennie just after his victory. You can read that conversation here.
