Since childhood I had been close to automobiles as my dad is an electrical engineer and has always made me accompany him to his best job sites as I enjoyed seeing and being there with him. Completed my engineering in electronics and my masters in management studies. All these years of growing up and being associated to various extra curricular activities, my fondness for motorcycles ws at its peak. Started by owning a Honda unicorn 150 to upgrading it to a Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500 and then I saw a master piece of motorcycle mean machine on a social media link and it was a Harley Davidson Street 750. I was one of the first lot of purchasers in Mumbai to go book the ride without even having a look or a test ride. I still remember the booking number was 84. By June 14th 2013 I was a proud owner if a Harley Davidson Street 750. Here starts my story of association with the brand and the brotherhood that came along. I was soon riding with a group of people with like minds for motorcycles. Did my first zonal ride to Hyderabad in 2013. Post the ride I realized its time to get something bigger,time for an upgrade.
In a months time I was in search of an upgrade in the same brand. I found my ride then. It was a friend who messaged me on facebook an image of a motorcycle with specifications. I agreed yet again. No test rides and no negotiations. But somewhere I knew this is my fateful ride. Bought her home on 15th October 2014. Named her Eleanor. The legendary name of the Shelby GT 500 Ford Mustang from the movie Gone In Sixty Seconds. I was the owner of a Harley Davidson Nightster XL 1200.
Had made a promise to my Eleanor that I shall ride the whole country and Eleanor always being my ride.
Have done many long and short rides until that short Cap Ride to Malshej on 22nd March 2015. As I was heading back home I met with a near fatal accident at Murbad. Have had my piece of pain and recover but never forgot :LIVE YOUR LEGEND”. Its been two years since the incident but I never gave up on my dream, passion and my affection for my bike. I await for a call from the service center stating my bike is re-built and good to go. I shall be back on my saddle and will fulfill my promise I made.
