A solo backpacker, thrill seeker and a man who enjoys his freedom. Yes, for him it's all about freedom. On the road for 3 months, covering a total of 6000kms, visiting places in Kerala, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Goa. Meet Farhan Muhammed, from Kerala, India. An entrepreneur, living in the Middle East now. He is Passionate about travelling, photography and riding. He says, “When you go on a solo ride, you get time to know yourself, who you are, what you are capable of, and how strong you are. For me a ride is always full of uncertainties. You are basically free to go wherever you want, whenever you want, despite the suitability of your fellow riders or your companion. And I am sure its fun the other way too, but I personally choose to ride solo.” “For me, rides are always meant to find peace within me, to find myself. To feel the wind, to bask in the sunshine, to soak in the rain, to see the shining stars and the open skies.” His suggestion however for a safe long road trips is to utilise the sunlight as much as possible, and take rest in the night. Start before sunrise and end by sunset. And take all the safety measures, the most important never miss to wear a helmet.
Do you have a story of a time something went wrong but turned out for the best? “Well something that turned out the best was, when I was on a trip to Hampi, I started from Bangalore and on the way I lost my route., I reached somewhere in the middle of a village, with the most beautiful locale. Well that was not all, I had a punctured tyre, and there was not even a single tyre shop I could find. With no hotels in sight, a kind old women allowed me to stay at her house, had an amazing experience cooking roti with her, listening to her life stories." That is an unforgettable memory for me. I stayed back two more days to explore more of it, and every bit of the place was so beautiful and returning to Bangalore with no pictures of historical monuments of Hampi, but an old women's beautiful smiling face and her village. “At the end of it, it’s all about happiness!” #hwyrider #hwystories #ridetolive #realriders #realstories #motorcyclestories #rentals #Himalayan #makelifearide
