What we're about
Do you connect with the ‘Dhoom’ type of self-proclaimed bikers you see on the roads, making risky high-speed manoeuvres while weaving through thick traffic on a congested, narrow lane? If you do, unfortunately, then we suggest that you immediately click on the X button on the top right hand corner of your screen. This is definitely not the place for you!
However, if you enjoy the wind against your helmet visor, venturing into unexplored terrains, beyond the realm of your routine, corporate life, with a tribe that has evolved into a cult, then look no further – be a part of The Musafirs – a tribe that rides out every month, come hail or storm, to add life to our days!
Just a passion for riding isn’t enough... You will need more to be a part of the Musafirs tribe. This isn’t your average riding club; we strictly adhere to rules and regulations. Zero-tolerance to drugs, the right attitude, selflessness towards the tribe and non-egoistic interactions, will help you break the ice with us.
As I write this post in August 2015, we have already done more than 60 rides (remember…at least one ride a month) including the ones to Leh, Spiti, Rann of Kutch, Hampi and are getting ready for our first international ride to Thailand…
When we say short rides, don’t take the ‘short’ too seriously; it’s become a very relative term. For the seasoned, distances of about 250-350 km probably classify as ‘short’ now. But let that not put you off; we’ll definitely consider your comfort.
So, from short rides of 100-km one way, to back-breakers of 900-km one way, the Musafirs can boast of having done them all. Serene beaches, forsaken mountains, rustic countryside’s, mystic forests, pristine riverbanks, we’ve been there all. The joy of discovery, and riding of course, is probably what drives us. For the Musafirs, every ride is just as special and unique.
Since its inception in 2011, the Musafirs have slowly, but very steadily, grown into a definitive cult, redefining the idea of riding for leisure and passion. However, we expect nothing less than the highest levels of road safety from our riders. Should you choose to ride with us, you will be a part of riding teams, follow disciplined formations, and communicate on-road using gestures.
We don’t indulge in road rage, we do not tolerate drunk riding; we ride for the joy of riding, NOT TO SHOW-OFF! And that is why we aren’t brand-specific too. Neither are we gender-specific – we have a number of women riding with us. Hell yeah, the Musafirs is even co-led by a woman. As long as you have a decent bike which won’t breakdown mid-way, and a burning passion for riding sensibly, it’s a good start to join the Musafirs Cult.
Do check out our facebook page http://www.facebook.com/MumbaiMusafirs ; that is where the action happens. And join us some time, if you fit in like a perfectly chiselled cog-wheel, it’ll be worth it for you!
But do you fit the bill? Can you manage to ride in tandem with the group, as a part of the group? Do you have what it takes to be a Musafir? Do you have what it takes to be a part of this family?
You wouldn’t know unless you set out to ‘Be a Musafir’. So, come forth, explore – ride hard, ride safe!
