On The Go - From The Travel Bag Of A Solo Biker
SUHAS RAMAKRISHNAN is a quintessential biker, who loves to venture on his beloved Harley. In one of his recent expeditions, he finds inspiration at the famous Uluru in Central Australia. Through one of the most punishing deserts on Earth, this expedition is as much about courage as it is about perseverance and unwavering self-belief. Suhas also shares some valuable tips, especially for those bitten by the solo travel bug.

More often than not, we tend to forget that we need to venture out into the open, which helps us have a different perspective to life!

Mid-last year, while I was flying out of Australia, I looked down from my window and saw this glorious red rock glowing in the late afternoon light. It planted the seed in my head of traveling to Uluru on my Harley. In my last solo expedition from Sydney to Perth, between the East and West Coasts of Australia, I had covered a distance of approximately 7,000 kms. But this time it was going to be over 8,000 kms of the unforgiving Australian desert. I slowly started working towards it, as each and every detailof my journey needed to be laid out and meticulously-planned.

I wanted to do a round trip from Sydney, covering the legendary Australian outback and seeing the World Heritage site of Uluru and the Kata Tjuta National Park. I wanted to push my boundaries, ensuring that this trip was more challenging than my previous one. And what better way to do it than being alone on the road, with my bike, in the middle of nowhere!

Life according to me is a celebration: the more you celebrate, the more there is in life to celebrate. So I decided to “celebrate life” under the stars, close to one of Australia’s most recognizable landmarks – Uluru.
