BikeBandit: Riding Gear, Bike Accessories & What Not !
I have never really been a “Bike Man”. Never. Ever since I can remember, may be when I turned 18, I learnt driving a car first. That really set the tone for me being more interested in cars, which was then a comfort zone for me, unlike my friends and similar-age-guys, whose first choice was always a bike. So much so, that when they used to discuss about bikes or bike accessories and riding gear, I was completely clueless. Today, I wish to live that age. During my college, I used to dream about being super-successful sophisticated Corporate Manager in an MNC. Today, I wish I could turn the clock. I wish I was in my teens riding a bike of my own and having fun in my own little way.
Having traveled quite a bit, if not enough to qualify as a “traveler”, I have one desire – to travel to Ladakh. And it is said that Ladakh can only be taken inside of you on bikes, not typically in the confined zones of your car (okay, you want to have a debate… Shoot ! 🙂 ). Either this year or next max, I am going to make it possible, no matter what. And hence, I started searching for pictures of all the riders who have already been there and done that. The bikes, mostly Royal Enfield Bullets came across, the riding gear – typically black jackets, boots, gloves all inclusive, the bike accessories of all kinds that you can imagine etc. And it really looks dapper. Even the feeling of wearing that and having the best time of your life. WOW !
- And this is when I came across a super awesome online store BikeBandit.com.
