Well…So where do I begin…Let’s just say…something that began as merely a convenient way to commute actually helped me rediscover myself!

Blame or maybe bless Mumbai’s crazy traffic jams and lack of parking spaces that first introduced me to riding. So I began my tryst with biking on a thrifty commuter bike perfect for pottering about town. I had absolutely no notion of what was to come!

Soon the bug caught on…Started to love the feeling…The feeling of freedom…The feeling of seamlessly becoming one with your surroundings. Since I was just 19 and studying, super secret rides to the outskirts of the city were the order of the day! Soon began the search for other such like-minded mates and then I stumbled upon This was my first introduction to concepts like ‘Riding gears’, ‘Responsible riding’, ‘Group riding’ and most of all so many people who apparently shared the same passion, so overwhelming at that time! A big shout out to xbhp for changing my outlook towards motorcycling 🙂

Right from my first Lonavala ride on my humble Honda Unicorn 150 to Goa rides on my Ninja 300, I’ve had the time of my life and I cherish every memory. And I am sure much more is to come! Bigger and better!

Finally, about LOST, I never imagined I could be a part of such an awesome, close-knit group of bikers. Most of the guys here have done a great many more rides than I have, It’s a privilege to ride with you guys! Love you all and would like to thank everyone for making it such a great group!

A good long ride can clear your mind, restore your faith and use up a lot of fuel”
