I love riding as blood running machine since childhood i was always dreaming for bikes specially Royal Enfield but due to the family circumstances i was not able to fulfil it. I stared my dreams fulfil after I got married and my soul mate my wife truly help in my passion and she always stand with me.
Earlier i used to ride in the groups with my first Royal Enfield TB 350 but then in 2016, there was a dramatic changed come out when i got Royal Enfield Himalayan and planed for Spiti and Leh, all the fellow riders advised me that don’t take this Himalayan to Spiti as its a new machine and you never knew that machine very well infect they dropped out me from there ride for the same as i stood that i take this machine only, I used to sit with workshop man long long time to get maximum information of machine because i already make my self for solo to Spiti and Leh with this machine which i brought one month back and i promised myself that i have to do it at any cost.
Yes, then in July 2016 i did it solo and become first Himalayan rider who rode on Spiti Solo, so if you have the confidence on your self and on your bike you can do any thing after that i rode my Himalayan 24000 km so far in all India. Challenges which are very common is racing with local bikers, photo click by passer of four wheeler’s are very bad experience but I never bore with these types of huddles and go on.
As a solo rider few things which you have to focus, you should knew very with your machine and always keep the important spare parts with you, you should be very confident and tension free while riding, grab maximum local information before start your ride, always respect local culture and there food, try to make good relations with local groups and solo riders of other cities, pick a good motto while riding as i always picked two motto side for Ambulances and Stop acid attacks, never consume any alcoholic substance while riding.
My most memorable journey was Lucknow to Goa when i faced real challenge as the battery charger of my bike got damaged thrice and i rode 3500 km without battery, I stuck on highway in mid night and my bike stop working then I have to wait 2 hours on unknown highway for help but i never lose my confident and got few local peoples who push my loaded bike so that i can start it, i never forget those peoples in my life long.
Second, when i was coming back from Leh, i was stuck on Rohtang pass due to heavy fog i could not find out the roads and i was losing my confident slowly slowly as temperature goes down minutes per minutes but fortunately there was a Boarder Road Org. truck is coming from my back then i start following his hazard lights and came down from Rohtang pass.
So, always take your ride as a journey for happiness do not compare with others yes took others as your inspiration .
Now I am planning for 4 corners of India, lets hope will finish it and share my experience with you.
