The 7 different phases of my riding life

Yesterday’s article brought back memories of how my riding life started. Over the decade that I’ve spent with motorcycles, my purpose with them and my behavior towards them has changed dramatically. It’s difficult to notice these changes when they happen, because it’s all in super-slow motion, but when you look back over the years, see… Read More »

A simple guide to handling Street Racers

There have been many names, Squids, Roadside Rossis, Street Racers. For the purpose of this article, let’s call them Squids, since Street Racer can be used in a different context, and Roadside Rossi is too long. Here’s my definition. A Squid is someone on a motorcycle who purposely rides dangerously, knowingly fucks with other road users,… Read More »

Video Vednesday: Dirt is Dangerous

Dirt is fun, there aren’t stupid people around, so you can just do your thing, relax, and get away from it all. There’s always a risk involved when you’re on your bike, but hey, it’s like David says, “No risk, No fun”.

RiderZone Recommends: Complete list of Riding Gear under 50,000 Rs.

If you can afford a Dainese 2-piece suit, or a set of Alpinestars leathers, or an Arai helmet, nothing like it. However, most people who message me to ask for riding gear recommendations have extremely tight budgets.

GoPro Hero5 is the iPhone 7 of the action camera world

Both are made in China, both are marketed by extremely white people, and both are overpriced status symbols unworthy of the price people pay for them. I, of course, am saying this as an Indian. Both these items are far more affordable in first-world countries. In India, not only are GoPros sold at an inflated price,… Read More »

6 more interesting Indian bikers who are fun to follow

I haven’t met all of these people, I barely know who they are, and I don’t agree with everything they say. A person’s private and public faces can be very different. I am a rude outspoken cunt online, but a shy introvert loner in real life. I am what I am on the internet because it’s… Read More »

Video Vednesday: 5 examples of how Riding Gear saves lives

It’s been a strange week. It started out rather normal, with me posting some random brains farts about the ride that I did. The last 2 articles have been far too serious though, and I’m not sure why. I like writing such investigative pieces, although they are quite a pain in the ass to compile,… Read More »

This is why I’ll never buy a Kawasaki, and neither should you

In case you’re already aware of the history of this fiasco and the underlying issues, please feel free to skip this article and directly sign the Change.org petition over here.

A bad cop, a good guy, and the sad story of Indian motorsports

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, 50 bikers got together near a village for a rally. Then one of the village cops went full Singham on the riders, assaulted the organizer, and dragged them all to the police station. He allowed them to go after 7 hours, but not before breaking plenty of laws that… Read More »
