Being a motorcyclist my entire life, I always wondered of ‘What More’ can one do apart from the regular notion of weekend touring on motorcycles. The intent has been to highlight/experience ‘other available facets of motorcycling’ in my beloved city.

1. Get Off the Road!

Big Rock Moto park, an off-roading facility run by Santhosh CS and his team providing the experience of off-road trail and dirt riding and yes they teach you to take “jumps” (the closest to flying on a motorcycle!!

  • Location: Holali Village, Kolar
  • Cost: half day program (6000 INR/person includes food, gear and the motorcycle – mainly the Honda CRF 250)
  • Distance from Bangalore: 60 KMs
  • Contact Number: +919731799941/+919731733341

Usually their programs/events are on weekends from 7 am to 5:30pm.

2. Royal Enfield Factory Tour

There is so much that goes into a motorcycle and no better way to understand that than visiting a motorcycle factory. In spite of an array of opinions – the RE factory tour is highly recommended for every motorcyclist (especially the Paint-Shop of the tour) – helmets off to these artists!!

  • Location: Tiruvottiyur, Chennai
  • Cost: 600INR/ person
  • Days of the tour: Every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month
  • Procedure: Register for the tour online and wait for a confirmation email
  • Cameras and Videography during the tour is limited
  • Duration of the tour: 3 to 3.5 hours

3. Live the Poster Dream – Luxury Bike Rentals in Bangalore!!

Can it get any better!! You heard me – the first of the kind to rent superbikes on a day-to-day basis (mostly Harleys and Triumphs for now).

4. Sign-Up for a TrackDay Riding School

The best arena to understand and push the limits of one’s riding abilities – a 2 day session on racetrack opens up the mind of the rider enabling him/her to make better decisions on the road.

Bangalore-based Indimotard’s TWO and Apex Racing Academy offer track-day sessions at MMSC Chennai or Kari Speedway Coimbatore.

I am a true blue Bangalorean – Food, Motorcycles and Travel are my essentials, cant think of a life without them. ‘Food‘ intrigues me, I regard it as an ‘Experience‘ and taking food pictures gives me immense pleasure.
