Season's Greetings from Helmet Stories

2011 was a super year for Helmet Stories. We rode in the Rann of Kutch;  charted new routes in Spiti and rediscovered  the awesome back roads of Maharashtra. We rode across the country for Kotak's 25th Anniversary celebrations and  started a Breakfast Run in Mumbai.  2012 promises to be bigger and better as we have a few surprises up our sleeve and are adding more rides to So don't go anywhere there is lots more to come.
Now before we hit the beach and start cracking open the cold ones we just wanted to wish all of you guys out there (yes you too the person from Belarus who just got to the blog) a super New Year and hope you had a great Christmas.
Ride Safe.
Harsh & Vir

Helmet Stories - Vir

So a week or so ago while I was still in Chandigarh an old friend Rahul (a Merchant Mariner who is following his talent in making great videos and has started a company called Starving Artist Videos)showed up at home with his Cannon 5D and said lets shoot a 60 second video on you and Helmet Stories. So after 6 hours of planning and 3 odd hours of shooting this is what we got and we have to agree it aint that bad.
p.s - that baby in the film is my daughter Gia and yes she loves motorcycles too.
