Inspired to Ride
Last year I was on a road trip with my family to Spiti Valley, there I saw a group of 5 to 6 people coming there at such a high altitude of 15500 ft in their own bikes, riding from New Delhi.
We were inside the Innova car and it was pretty hard to breathe due to low levels of oxygen. But they were chasing the Himalayas by pushing themselves in such a diverse conditions, they were following snow capped mountains, living their dreams and enjoying in the direct serenity of Spiti Valley.
That day I felt the urge to ride into himalayas and had a thought that someday I will surely make it to the Himalaya in a bike.
Then comes a day when I decided to put my plans and dreams into action. I shared my desire to ride a motorcycle with my family and friends, my husband started teaching me riding in week offs. My first lesson started with the weight management of the vehicle I will be riding. I still remember his lines "One must know how to handle the vehicle he or she is riding". This helps me a lot in learning the technicalities of a motorcycle. I practiced handling with Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 then used my brother's Bajaj Avenger in getting ride-on lessons. Slowly I started practicing daily after coming back from office. Sometimes in Sundays we just used to roam around in our bike in nearby places. This way I managed to learn riding a bike.
