Took a look down a westbound road,
Right away I made my choice
Headed out to my big two-wheeler,
I was tired of my own voice....

We rolled across the high plains

Deep into the mountains

Felt so good to me

Finally feelin' free

One prize for every valid entry! Yeah!! I love this kind of spirit... Renie, this is a good idea.

I plan to send in multiple 'valid entries' for this one... :)

You know... I have driven a bike for more than 2.5 lakh kms... and stopped only after I bought my first car, a Wagon R, in 2001. Have gone for loooooong drives with my wife and son and have loved the feeling EVERY time.

Wish it had been bicycle instead of bike. Have good stories to share on bicycling. Don't even know to ride a bike. maybe I should write about the one bike trip I made on pillion or the one passionate biker friend who I know  to get the T-Shirt. But without personal experience, no chance of winning and these prizes also if I win I need to gift it to the one biker friend I have. 

let the imagination roll, @ the fool,

one query, can one write an imaginary bike ride.

another, is vineet rajan entering the contest, otherwise, I can interview him

is scooter ride euivalent to bike ride.

Of scooter is allowed, I want bicycle to be allowed as well.

@The Fool, how will bycycle benifit castrol, put some small  engine, with castrol mobile  in to it.

Pramodji, You can write an imaginary bike ride as well! I don't think it would be right to interview me! There are bigger and wilder riders out there! Can even you to a few of them! How does that sound?

Vineet Rajan

Also Pramodji, IndiBlogger members cannot enter any contest! :)

I know VineetSmile, passion for bullet is something which only bullet lovers can know. I am planning to buy one myself soon.

But, I am sure you can still be interviewed. No T&C stops us from that

We're sure you've had your share of biking experiences! You don't need to be a rider to write for this contest! 

Punit Dubey

We know a lot of Lady Rider who ride as a pillion and hate to be called so! It's about being on a ride, as a rider or dream a bout a ride as a rider...just mention that as a story :)

Vineet Rajan
Vineet Rajan

Riding Scooters, mopeds, bikes, superbikes or having sat on one all count as biking experiences! Like Pramodji mentioned, it could also be an imaginery tale! Its the experience that matters, and what Castrol would also be looking at! 

Thanks Vineet ji, for inputs, i have driven scooter lesser than arvind ji, but, in deadly places, like patna, and surat roads. so, a lot of experiences are bulging to explode.

Done with the post. Its a sarcastic take. No hard feelings with the bikers though. Hope they take it in a lighter sense. 

 

Go read and comment.

This is indeed an interesting topic, and I have written a few posts myself on my blog. But unfortunately, none can be entered into the contest! This is a good time to not be part of IndiBlogger! :) 

Pramodji got in touch to be connected with a rider. Doing that. Others who wish to interview riders in their respective cities or want to do it on email please get in touch! Happy to help! The Bullet riding fraternity spans across India, and I am fortunate to know quite a few amazing riders through the length and breadth of the country! 

thanks vineet, It's really a great topic and I am enjoying it, and getting to know world class riders,
