"Sometimes you find yourself in the middle of nowhere and sometimes in the middle of nowhere, you find yourself!"

  • Motorcycle road trips have been of great fun and value for those who have been doing it since a long time. With this culture on the rise, the number of frequent riders is increasing.

    The number of places a new rider knows are very limited. To find trustworthy places to eat is a problem people face when they travel to new places. To find a petrol station, garage and hospital becomes a serious trouble on a ride when in need of one. We are here to provide new locations for a rider to explore.

    We will give them complete information about the Restaurants, Garages, Petrol stations and hospitals on the route the person has taken. We will rightfully be the perfect pillion for any rider.

  • I own a Royal Enfield Classic 350. Discovering new places is my passion. The motorcycle riding 'sub-industry' is definitely taking shape under the umbrella of the travel industry. Number of motorcycle riders are increasing day by day. The fact that any scenic place can be reached out on a motorcycle makes it even simple for people to opt for a motorcycle road trip than rely on public transport. With the vision to capture this market, we started planning on making a concise mobile application, where A to Z requirements of a road trip can be brought under one roof.

    As of now we are on the verge of launching the first version of the App, which will keep on updating regularly. There was only one big challenge we had faced: neither me nor my colleague are acquainted with the technical background required for the App making. Finding the right people who can connect and deliver as per our requirements and that too under a small budget was a herculean task. But after lot of efforts, we are lucky to have met Team Startuphand. Technical issues have never aroused since!

  • People claim success as 'Having no need of introduction' or 'Signature turning into autographs'. But frankly these things don't bother me. Sure who doesn't want to be famous! But to achieve that is not success.

    I set up short term targets everyday. To achieve these targets in the way they were meant to be, before I go to sleep, is success for me. If you take care of the small issues and minute details of the job, the big picture will take care of itself.

    So I have never really bothered about a firm plan for the next 10 years. Sure we have a vision. But the focus is always on details. To achieve a 10/10 on these daily jobs is success according to me, for any individual. To be able to complete all of my tasks in time and deliver them to the customers the best quality is Success according to me.

  • No the startup is not funded yet. As in the current scenario, the out flow of cash is majorly in the technical support required. Another area where we require money is for burning fuel to explores new terrains and places to feature on the app. Currently, Me and my colleague are working in a MNC, and are supporting the startup by our salaries.
  • Our vision is that our app should become the oxygen for any rider out there on the street. We are planning to mark every major road on the app with the utility points in India, starting from the Pune-Mumbai corridor.

    With its ease to use and unmatched features, we plan to be the one touch point of contact for any road tripper out there for his Destination, Food and Stay needs as well.

  • Usually, motorcycle riders, who travel long distances, carry a message from village to village, be it awareness about some illness or education, or driving safety etc. In future, we would love to sponsor rides of people who are riding for a cause. We would also organize group ride in any city itself for promotion of similar issues mentioned above.
  • There is nothing like it when your hobby turns into your profession. No matter how dark the path might seem, you must take the foot forward. Only then you can see beyond the darkness. Also, in between, when you feel lost, scared and you think of leaving, there is a line which I heard somewhere and even I apply, 'Just remember why you started it all!' That will get you back on track!
