he rst time I went to the racetrack (MMR),the experience transormed me into not just a more technically correct rider, but also a moreresponsible and humbler biker. Putting a ew laps around a good racetrack helps you learn more aboutriding on the limit than an entire lietime o riding on thestreets can. Tere are no excuses on the racetrack, as thereare no obstructions and perils – an honestrider would see his naked sel in the mirror ater spending aslittle as hal a day around the circuit. Ninety percent o thetimes the bravado o boastul riders is replied to mercilessly by more seasoned riders who go past them around cornersas i the ormer were stationary. Tis helps bring a lot o people back to terra rma rom their narcissistic sky. Te whole experience opens the eyes o a thinking biker to theutility o trying to go ast on the streets. No matter how hard you try, on public roads, you won’t be able to extractmore than 60 percent o your bike’s potential withoutputting your, or other road users’ lie in peril.It’s unortunate to know that our country has only one proper racetrack and that too is located at one o theather ends o the country, making it extremely dicultor riders rom distant locations to visit the place on theirsteeds and hone their skills. However, it’s heartening toknow that even with all the adversities, more and moreriders are showing interest in paying a visit to the racetrack to learn the ner nuances o riding and help themselvesbecome a more accomplished, more responsible rider. Inthat context, the initiative taken by a ew individuals andorganizations to conduct track days and racing schools isappreciable in every sense o the word. Such events notonly educate riders about technically correct riding butalso help spot the untapped talent to improve the quality o the country’s motorsport pool. Trottle Wide Openand Caliornia Superbike School were two such rare eventsorganized recently at the Chennai race track. Committedto the development and promotion o motorsport inthe country, we bring to you a detailed log o both theseevents through the experiences o two participants. Weare sure the eatures will not only help hundreds o ridersin improving their riding techniques, but will also inspiremany bikers to make it to the racetrack and learn the nernuances o racing. Apart rom the race schools, this month we haveKunal’s ‘Monster Dog’ Bonneville Bullet as our lead story.Te man has been preparing his bike or a speed run atthe Mecca o speed – the Bonneville Salt Flats. Althoughit may sounds as a thorough exaggeration to some, butthis bike can do a top whack which no other Indianperormance bike can dream o. Kunal has put about twoyears in preparing this bike, and his hard work refects inthe way this bike goes. It’s a crazy, crazy experiment.Tis month we also bring to you an exclusive rstride review o the RE Bullet Electra with twin spark unitconstruction engine. Te new engine has brought about a sea change to the character o the bike. Read the detailedreview penned by our Chennai based man Joy Sharma. Itgives us immense pride to let you know that we organizeda one o its kind rst aid and trauma workshop or bikersin Mumbai. Many a times accident victims cannot makeit to the hospital, not because their injuries are lethal,but because o being manhandled during transport tothe hospital. Tis workshop is a great step orward inequipping the biker raternity with a better knowledge o administering rst aid and handling road accident victims.Read a log o the workshop to become a more useul manin the event o a crisis. All this apart, this month we havea crazy travelogue rom a biker duo that travelled acrossIndia, Nepal and Bhutan on a humble pair o a HeroHonda Splendor and Unicorn. Teir experiences were sorich that they had more than a thousand pictures to makeus choose rom or this eature – much to the displeasureo Ramakant, our resident design expert. Read all abouttheir crazy exploits in an elaborate travel eature that isalso the winner o our Super rip contest or the montho April.Happy revving, Amit Chhanganiamit@motoroids.com
