10 Things a Woman Biker faces in India

10 Things a Woman Biker faces in India

1. An idiot who intentionally blocks the way and stares at you from the rear-view mirror.

Dude! I can totally see you staring at me from your rear-view mirror.

2. A person who gets offended when you ride at a bit of speed as you rush to work or office and starts racing with you.

Really? Did I see you trying that now?

3. A person/people who ride besides you while looking you up and down with x-ray vision and tries to click photographs on the mobile phone.

Wow! Click blurred pictures of mine. When I find you, I will kill you!

4. A guy who overtakes you from the left while you are riding on your way home or heading to work just to annoy you.

I feel so attracted to you when you do that. Not!

5. A guy who overtakes you with a big ‘vroom’ on his bike and then stays just a bit ahead of you with a weird-ass racing position and performs unsafe stunts while you keep riding at a peaceful pace.

Oooh! That's a nice view!
Oooh! That’s a nice view!

6. A guy who you feel like kicking off his bike just because he is intentionally riding too close to you with the hope that you will lose your balance and fall off your bike.

You try that once more and I will push you off your bike.

7. A guy who tries to touch you as he passes by you on his bike.

You try that buddy and I will cut you to pieces.

8. A guy/guys in a car who tries to squeeze you towards the left or right of the road hoping you have an accident.

There's no other word for you but this. Chu&*#$!!!

9. A guy/guys at the signal who look you up and down while you wait and then annoyingly ‘vrooms’ off with a loud rev just before the signal turns green.

Awww! That's adorable! Let me just put on my jogging shoes and catch up with your speedy bike.

10. And finally, people who ask you stupid questions and even though you answer them, they don’t register it because their main purpose of stopping you was to look you up and down.

Help me!!!
Help me!!!

BOBMC-It all began with a simple thought

It is not easy to create a platform where clubs from different parts of India and with varied ideologies and functioning have thumped in harmony for the past twelve years.

Sometimes, a simple vision and thought can create the best out of what seems as nothing at the start. A vision to create a common platform for bulleteers and a way to spread the spirit of brotherhood, this is exactly what brought on the birth of  the ‘Brotherhood of Bulleteers Motorcycling Consortium’ in short called popularly as ‘BOBMC’.

BOBMC is brotherhood and brotherhood is BOBMC. Wonderfully intertwined and beautifully executed in the form of the ‘Rider Mania’ (conceptualized by Vernon Dias-Madras Bulls), a Royal Enfield owners event held annually by a different member club of BOBMC. An event where clubs present their colors proudly, where beer flows freely and so does good humour. Where clubs engage in good willed events against each other to see the best bulleteers win.

The friendships forged here are for life. If you ever vroom through a brother club’s state or town, or if you are in distress, these friends for life are just a throttle away.

The team at ‘A Couple of Adventures’ are a mix of seasoned riders and new to the motorcycle community riders. But for all, this will be the first BOBMC Rider Mania ever.  We won’t deny how desperately eager we are to head out there with our club, represent strongly, cheer the loudest and to be a part of the heady experience that the Rider Mania brings to the saddle.

Team COA will be riding down from Pune, then meet up with members of the ‘Wolfe Pack India’ motorcycle club which has clocked in a RM registration of 87 members to date and ride in to the venue with the pack in spirited formation thereon.

This is also the first RM, that ‘The Bikerni’ will be taking an active part in. Eagerly looking forward to see women bulleteers taking part in the events with full gusto and zeal.

Madras Bulls or as they are fondly called ‘Mad Bulls’ took over the hosting baton from RERAM and have called in fellow bulleteers for the event at ‘Mahabalipuram’,Tamil Nadu on the 18th and 19th of January, 2014.

Right by the sea, on the sandy shores is where the RM venue is set up this year. Will be interesting to see the dirt track and the races that shall occur on a challenging terrain.
