You

What in the world is your worth!! Have you ever thought of yourself as a person who lived all your life the circles of this usual vicious life but have lost that touch to your own inner-self.

Today that I see everyone giving ideas, thoughts and selling themselves to be the one who they actually either were or want to be. But in all this, what the basic moral of life they tend to skip – is to be one with you. We all want the modern gadgetry of this apple world and the modern tablets but does that really makes you live your real life. The virtual phenomenon of existence has brought us down many steps from what the real life .. The REAL YOU used to be.

Emotions of life, from the time you are born till the time you die. Someone who never gets to see the life and cease his existence before even reaching this life and the ones who make it to life bring joys to the life of their parents and till the moment they leave they leave the emptiness of their warmth if they ever maintained it. Somewhere in all this belongs all our emotions, fears, love, lust, desires, longingness and above all the need to be one with self standing along with someone who can make you feel that – “You” are the real milestone of your own life.
Without no logical reasoning, we all make our bonds with our parents as we are born to them. We live to leave them behind for a logical reasoning of exploring ourselves and find partner. Have Children to keep the logic of our existence going and then decide to live hoping with the logic one day our children might want to come and be with us. For all the above logics, do we really give ourself some time to think from our real self? How much do we belong to ourselves? Are we doing this justice of being ourself but not being with your own self in real sense? Our dependencies break us but that seems the only way for existence when the world has shrunk into the virtual hole of iPads and iPods and iTouches and FaceBook status updates.

Do you really exist for the moment of life !! Then when was the last time you really wondered about this life and said – I am going to connect to myself. Today I see we all are machines, robots and humanoids in the hands of technology which is needed but do we see ourselves as really social beings “A BIG QUESTION” stands right in front of you. I feel the need to be myself and I decide of bringing that peace in my life away from these hassles of worries, love, lust, relationships, and unwanted creed of being in surrounded company of people who would not recognize you if you were to be away for a week from their lives.

The connection of you to your own self is within you. If you find this to be more than boring, think again or just leave now. I only express what I learned, saw and collected travelling the bounds of cities and the most remote places on earth. If you are not on the plane of self stability, the life will shrink like air out of balloon with a small leak in it. Yes, we fall sick and most of the times its only our emotions that make us fall sick. We are not in tandem with our own emotions, we can connect but lose our focus as soon we see the next person in our life.
My solo experience of being and learning who I am – I contribute it to Myself, when I can see within myself, identify my real purpose of life. I am here and I am never here – what really belongs here is only inside you. The feelings, the emotions, the words of tarnished experience that I collected – I feel we all have these things within us. Do we ever try to sit in peace and see outside our busy scheduled modern lives. If not, its almost time for you to connect within yourself. If you can’t and want to know how you can do it .. drop me a line(Babbar.mani@gmail.com). I am not going to change your life but share the simple facts of life that connect you to yourself. The thoughts are from the within, we all have them but to find the focus out of them to be who we are – is where the life and the tricks of life challenge us. If someone who has the reason to get you connected, it is not because the money is the only thing in life. The other part of you inside you – does not live on money but lives on rent inside your heart for which you never even want to acknowledge its presence. Make this little fella your real friend and see how the bounds of life around you want to make you feel the energy surrounding your existence.

Bay aM Way …. or simply BMW 1200GS

Finally, after years of wait I lodged myself into the high comfort Kahedo saddle of tractor on two wheels. Yes, I do want to make it sound like french for most of my emotions in my blood are full of toxication from the torque of the cow that rides like smooth butter. Forgive me for my swiss french here …let me bring myself down to earth and re-phrase my joy of riding a BMW 1200GS

I can re-collect my memories of seeing the first BMW1100GS poster in the plastic print on my wall nearly 12years ago and it stood like a wild imagination. The front double suspensions and spring rebound holding the whole frame for providing it the Centre of Mass in a well-defined manner it was simply an amazement to understand how these things work and how people ride them across the deserts loaded with such big panniers. Even till now the wild amusing of the brain keeps me clicking on how these big wheels trail those terrains – ANSWER – “Torque”

Meeting Phil, who happened to be in UK and in Cambridgeshire some 35 odd miles away from home. I had to thank him for his courtesy that he welcomed me from my long 24hours ride to Austria in 2009 allowing me to take a halt at his comfortable couch and treating me to his courteous meals.


It was a chance to take him for a ride along with me to some of the sea shores of Norfolk countryside. Weather as usual turned cloudy and grey but what better way when its two for the road – Just hit the road. Without a second thought we went on riding through the smooth flat road of Cambridgeshire into Norfolk and into the beautiful sea-side of Hunstanton.

Riding back through the Sandringham with the light spreading its super true wonderful red and blue magic over the greener pastures. It could not have got any better while cruising our way back into the night shelter. We talked endlessly of the riding gears, the years and the first time we met and how I have simply not been in touch. Forget the past and we live in present again. Riding back with a feel of little chill in the air – it was nice with our next day well planned.

How passionately, I still talk of the BMW simply shows in my way that my tongue simply slips over this BMW slippery surface. It simply is in the blood – the love for this german cow. A word that was introduced to me by Phil himself. He allowed me to take his cow for a ride while he was left to struggle with my half the engine power 600cc Fazer. I can’t express how he felt but all I want to share is how I felt on this BMW 1200GS.

At first, my brain conked up with the switches on the handlebar. “It’s just a bike” ride on – Phil shouted at me. Bloody it was in the first gear and I could not get it off the side stand even at first. 240kgs solid definitely stands out to its name. I would not want something that huge to go down or take me down with it. Taking the bike out of the first gear into the neutral and starting it with its round small twitchy button … it vibrated like … shake me inside out – Oh yes, the vibrations on 104,000kms old 1200GS nice to begin with. The best part was still that I was able to touch my feet down with enough to keep myself balanced on this high moving cow. It amazed me once it started to move. Damn, this thing moved to hundred at 3000rpm so smoothly and beat that it takes a whole body art to bank it in the corners. Well, this is a first time ride but I am enjoying my passion of BMW.

The next big thing which was a heart stopper for Phil, was that I am in the traffic and I was riding his cow in the traffic like my 600 which did not have those hanging big huge tits on either side of its body. As he says, I almost scratched few cars in the traffic .. nearly.. that he was already thinking of his insurance. But it definitely, takes courage to balance the beast in the traffic with those bulky tits .. either they will scratch off those cars or will take you down with them without u giving enough chance to notice it. I had to thank Phil for showing his trust in my ridng style which surely meant that I was not getting his bike in immediate city riding conditions.

Power, torque, comfort – it is a mix of all – ok, it’s not meant for racing on the open streets but given the torque it will nail any other road legal bike till 180MPH easy. No doubt, that BMW still sits on the top of my bike list but only if I could put on another 10-15kgs on my body and ensure that I am going to be able to move this bike on my own – it shall be mine that very day.

Phil, is a special friend whom I met on ADVrider.com and we came along since our first meeting in 2009 who supported me with his special help in the cold night helping adjusting my bike chain on a 10yr old Fazer 600 which is no more a part of my life now as the old tearing chain ensured that I let that bike go and get a newer Fazer which is very much strong and good miles muncher for now.

For those who know me – may know that 1200GS is my dream ride and those who dont know me – just know that I ride to live and I live to feel the freedom – Henceforth, the FreeBird Mani.

Letters Out

To all those friends, who have been waiting for my letter – they all have been posted today. Apologies for the long delays. Life really shows that its hard to keep up with old habits as new easy e-Life spoils and takes the charm of those classic style real letters.

Thanks again to all those people for your patience.

Landing Experience onboard BA

Landing in Frankfurt on board BA – pleasurable ignition to adrenalin.
Although in my personal experience – I feel Ryanair has better pilots and lands in more smoothly than others. Ryanair planes are even more good with their suspensions amid strong side winds – those pilots do a lot more better than BA or possibly the planes are well serviced.

Anyways enjoy the landing experience aboard BA flight.
