8 bike trips to go on this festive season

#Bike trip, #motorcycle, #Travel, Thomas Cook, SOTC, Adventure Nation, Motorcycle Rental India

(Representational image) Before going on a bike trip, pick up some motorcycle slang for the road. For example, Apes connotes “very tall handlebars typically found on cruisers”.

“God didn’t create metal so that man could make paper clips!” An early Harley-Davidson advertisement touted. The bike company was coaxing people to take a whole tankful of fuel and hit the road. Many listened and took to the two-wheels for life.

As the festive season approaches, pick a few motorcycle slangs for the road: Apes (Very tall handlebars typically found on cruisers), DILLIGAF (Does It Look Like I Give A F*ck), Dresser (touring bike), Garage rot (not ride a bike for long), Hardtail (any bike with no rear suspension), Keep the rubber side down (way of saying goodbye to another rider. Basically, it means to stay safe).

Here are a few domestic bike rides to pick from.
