My name is Bharat Vatsa and I don multiple hats when it comes to passion. I am a rider, a podcaster, a photographer, a fashion show consultant and a DJ. By profession I am an IT Consultant.
I ride Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500. I call it “TERMINATOR”.
I have done many long rides like Leh-Ladhak, Bhutan, Spiti including the Killar-Kishtwar stretch which is one of the most treacherous roads in the world with basically no roads. Every ride is a memorable ride but the most memorable I would say was Bhutan & the reason because I rode solo during my return to Pune. That was totally a different experience altogether!
With every ride I feel my soul becomes “FREE FROM ALL BURDENS”, I feel rejuvenated and ready for any challenge that comes my way. It’s totally a stress buster for me. Whenever I ride, I keep falling in LOVE with it, every time.
My 2 cents for new riders would be that just by riding a bike doesn’t mean that one can call himself a rider. To become a rider, one needs to test his own endurance & continuously keep working on improving self-riding skills by practice and practice. Biking is not just a passion or to feel free but brotherhood also comes with responsibility towards self and towards others. Hence we need to adapt to that brotherhood within ourselves. This all takes hard practice, discipline and positive attitude. So never leave it and overcome your fears.
My riding mantra is to overcome your fears, stay disciplined & always have positive attitude towards others.
