It’s not everyday that you find bikes revving at Atari-Wagah border. But, there’s always a first time. A group of bikers from RPM (Roaring Power Machines) India did just that in offering a biker salute to our BSF Soldiers. The unique ride was undertaken on 6th October, 2017. The team travelled 1000 Kms to say thank you to the real superheroes of this country, a tribute to the soldiers of Border Security Force (B.S.F.).
RPM India strives to be a deep rooted and ideologically driven community. Ride, Respect and Responsibility are the group’s core pillars of strength, and everything they do reflects their ideology. Along-with usual rides, the group thought of showing its gratitude to the those in uniform protecting us day and night. And as a biker community, what better than a rev salute. And sure enough, the roar did get the crowds to join in.
Riders were flagged of from India Gate, New Delhi by S.S.Chahar, VSM, IG, BSF in the early hours. 15 bikers rode for 500+ kms to honour our soldiers, the biker way at 6:00 am. The idea came to life from group members. RPM is in fact the first riding community to be given permission to bring their bikes onto the performance ramp. The venue hosts a variety of shows for visitors on a regular basis prior to the all famous Beating Retreat Border Ceremony.
Here’s a look at some of the riders and their rides: Aamir (Ninja 650); Atul singh (Triumph Daytona 676); Mohit puri (Triumph Daytona 675); Lakshya Batra (Triumph Daytona 675); Rahul Sabharwal (Harley Street Bob); Yashraj (Harley 48); Chetan (Ducati Monster); Vineet (Duke 390); Samriddh (RC 390); Akshay Singh (Kawasaki z900); Kartik (Harley 750); Sourabh (Triumph Tiger); Sahil Maini (Ninja 1000); Vikram (Triumph Tiger). The riding group was accompanied by pillion riders and a Mahindra XUV for support. Kanika, Smita, Salil, Akul, and Navjyot Singh drove along in the back up vehicle.
