3/19/2021
Biker Radio Rodcast embarks on its 66th episode of the Long Way Home featuring an iconic café that has become a sanctuary for DIYers but is essentially an overgrown man cave that doubles up as a garage, a tattoo parlour, a rescue home for pets, a kitchen for the hungry, and a hangout for motorheads as country Midwest meets the dhaba slam bang in a meteoric flash over the Aravalis. A must do in Delhi’s NCR, the Throttle Shrottle Moto Café run by its maverick founder Saurav Priyadarshi is...

Episode 65: BRR Ep 65 Lalli Singh on the Long Way Home

3/6/2021
The vision of foreigners travelling around India on vintage Royal Enfield rentals from Karol Bagh is a story that has intrigued us for many reasons. Until then, most Indians took a train or a bus and the better heeled took a car or a van to go on a vacation because the motorcycle was considered unreliable perhaps even unfit for travel. Just like the Hippie movement of the early 70’s, India witnessed the rise of yet another subculture, this time of foreign tourists, back packers, Israeli army...

The Motozeil Experience was a motorcycling utopia unheard of in India.

Episode 62: BRR Ep 62 Sukesh Viswanath on the Long Way Home

1/22/2021
There are some who face life’s battles with a tankful of gas and then there are those, who don’t. Some use the ride to think things thru and some who do it to abandon thought itself… Sukesh Viswanath is a thinking man. A cinematographer, he’s good to go on land, in the air and underwater as well. Born to academicians, Sukesh is well read but his penchant for adventures keeps his wild side sprightly. From running around the jungles of the Nilgiris to riding thru hell and high mountain passes...

You could be forgiven for assuming he missed the Aussie cricket team bus, because he’s tall, wiry, athletic and demonstratedly antipodean in every sense of the word but get a selfie as your jaw drops when he lashes out in the Terrai lingua franca. He might have two left feet but he sure can yap in chaste Hindi. And why not… Born Australian he's spent all his adult life here since he returned to Indian shores. His family has adopted India’s destitute children, given them a home and educated...

Sometimes a square peg is exactly what you need in a round hole…especially if the whole thing needs to be rethought. Rohith Subramanian imaginatively christened @misfitmagellan, prefers to square up with the hole sellers and the nay sayers as he does over 50 countries on his motorcycle in less than 4 years, on a budget and a quest.
