'Safe biking can change youths lives for better'

By following the safe motorcycling code, youths can change their life for the better by channelising their energies in a positive way as well as obtain that heady fulfilling feeling, associated with riding a bike, they say.

"Youths need an outlet for their energy. Safe biking can provide that outlet. It's an approachable and affordable sport. It gives you a feeling of safety and satisfaction at the end of the day," says, Sandeep Goswami, a motorcycling expert with experience of more than 5,00,000 kms on the road.

Goswami along with his team of other biking experts have launched a bi-monthly magazine, xBHP, on biking for a safe, responsible and fun-filled experience. xBHP is also an online community for biking-enthusiasts across India.

"We put the motorcyclist ahead of the motorcycle through this magazine. Our aim is to elevate motorcycling from a necessity driven activity to a lifestyle choice," says editor of the magazine, Sandeep Gajjar, who has ridden on superbikes across five countries.
"We have been the largest biking portal in India for six years now and wanted it to take it to next level. All magazines in India focus on vehicles and not the driver. Our magazine is for the motorcyclist and not for machine," he says.

The 200-page magazine will share experience of the bikers in India and abroad with high quality photos, articles on safe driving with the flavour of freedom and youth.
We are hopeful of replicating our success of the online portal, which receives around 210,000 hits per month, says Gajjar.

The team has also brought out an anthem for the youngsters which asks them to come out and use biking to channelise their energy.
The song asks parents, peers and better halves of the thousands of restrained and constrained motorcyclists to support and trust them in becoming safe and responsible bikers.
