Motorcycling Events in India
“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.” As rightly said by Sir Anthony J D’Angelo, passion is a driving force we all feel once in a while and it majorly differs for different people. For some, passion can be a form of art, for some it can be capital gain, it can be as realistic as helping people. It is anything that makes you happy, satisfies you, helps you sleep at night, drives you to do better no matter what, it keeps you motivated.
So, for many, in fact, for more than one-fourth of Indians, motorbike riding is deep-rooted in their blood.
For a lot of people, it develops after they buy their very first bike from their first salary, or for some, it develops at a very young age by watching your father hopping on that 1950’s scooter and driving off to work. You may believe it or not, India has a whole community of bikers that are well represented and for them their thrill and love for motorcycles is everything and their lives revolve around it. At the core of these communities lies a single united brotherhood. So, when so many people seem to share one single goal in life, it should be no surprise that they represent their enthusiasm on a big scale as well. That fondness has given birth to these motorcycling events in India and is attended by thousands of people
