Default Bharadwaj Dayala: Around the World in 18 months

I don't deserve anything to even comment on such herculean achievement

Quote:
This 36 year old man has always been adventurous and risk taking. He is extremely passionate about biking, and involves himself in a variety of different activities too. He is trained in paragliding, and likes to take up such activities such as trekking and rock climbing.

Add to this his experience as a sailor. He, truly, is an adventurous soul and the hunger for that adrenaline rushing excitement seems to run through his blood stream.

He teaches sailing and rock climbing in Vizag at the Bravehearts Youth Club. What’s more? He has even gone trekking to the Himalayas, all alone, just to hone his skills. In fact, he went there during the off season to experience the feeling of solitude. He is a black belt in karate. In short, there’s hardly anything that he hasn’t done.

A SOJOURN THAT BECKONS EXCELLENCE

He hails from Vishakhapatnam and he happens to be the first Indian to embark on a solo journey around the world on a motorbike. He covered 5 continents and 16 countries in his tour. He rode 47000 kms in a span of 18 months. Traversing through the terrains of Vishakhapatnam, Chennai, Tirupati, Hyderabad, Pune & Mumbai in India and from Iran onwards, he proved to the world that passion can nullify all difficulties and adversities.

People said I was crazy when i said I rode from Chennai to Hyderabad. Though a short trip by riders standards, I could do that with inspiration from many of you BHPians.
It's obvious for people to call this gentleman crazy. I have goosebumps for what he has achieved. He has set a benchmark that very few would be able to reach, especially Indians.

Aptly commented. These types of rides are the holy grail of bikers.
How on earth did I missed this thread ?

Here's something more if you're interested; I've watched this video some 2-3 times now & its not just humorous, but very inspiring as well. His experiences in Iran is something that can be done by someone who is extremely determined, his determination is something all of us have to learn for life

Thank you once again for this video. So is his book "Ride the World" published ? The Google search didn't yield any hint.

Not published yet; also this year he was planning for another World ride on a 650cc something like North to South or so, even that did not take off as expected.
