Helmet Stories and India Bike Week

So listen up! We would like to welcome aboard the fine fellows at India Bike Week, or IBW in Helmet-speak, on our humble little blog. They asked us to spread the word about India's biggest motorcycling event to be held in Goa, 2-3 Feb, 2013 and who are we to say no? IBW is a great fit for our philosophy – Cogito, ergo Zoom. We belong to a community that is brought together by a common passion for motorcycles and riding. There is no rich-poor, old-young, male-female, or even fast-slow, just those perfect fleeting moments on a motorcycle that we try again and again to recapture. As one of Helmet Stories favourite writer, Melissa Holbrook Pierson, says in The Perfect Vehicle: What It Is About Motorcycles : "I rarely think of motorcycles without a little yearning. They are about moving, and humans, I think, yearn to move-it's in our cells, in our desires. We quiet our babies with cyclic movement, and we quiet ourselves by going."

So gather around all ye lovers of the joy of speed, freedom and the smell of gas and leather for we are going to the India Bike Week in 2013. It doesn't really matter what you ride, the wind in our faces is the same...
