Congratulations Yogesh! You deserve hte honour for bringing together a forum for tourers. Its my bad luck I can not take advantage of all that information for a few years to come.

I agree with Tau. Title is a little misleading.

Anyways, good to see a article by our own guys giving a good perspective to touring and biking.

Nice article. But am I the only one who thinks the title is misnamed? :D
The article was the voice of bikers and moderation on a page that was mainly devoted to what had happened in Delhi a week back (Delhi police finally cracks down on hooligans).

Media can help bcmtouring spread good words. Media can make people believe what they want them to believe. I say for the next tour write a good article and get it published in HT City or something like that. I read an artricle on HT City about a guy on a trip to Narkanda (I guess, I do not remember completely) it was well written and I could see if 'aam junta' saw it, they would like biking.

Touring being the forum's strength, lets build on that and an articvel or two published in newspaper. I loved the article which Salil rode about his and manik's trip to Auli (and coincidence was me and vivek were returning from Auli when we heard two bikes scrapping foot pegs and we knew it was 'one of us' and stopped for general chit chat). But getting to more widely circulated media will get better image for us and better acceptability with parents and girlfriends!

@Sunil babu: Bhaisahab, aapki request poori kar di gayi hai. please see my thread of my recent trip.

A little OT: WE see a lot of words from english in the article just written in hindi. Come to think of it, should we not take more pride in our language and use more of hindi words?
