Background

Riding Experience
I hail from India and have been street riding (mostly long rides) on a 1980’s Enfield Bullet 500cc ; did some local roadracing on Yamaha 100cc 2-strokes. Had a dream to roadrace in US or Europe. Immigrated to US in 2000, but due to work and location did not get a chance to ride. Started street riding in 2007 and then trackdays from late 2009 (600cc) mostly with Keigwins and ZoomZoom.

600cc was challenging and I was not improving for a while. Moved on to supermoto riding for the street and took my stint at dirt riding/flat tracking schools which have been a lot of fun and learning experience.

In an effort to prepare myself for roadracing, sold the 600 and acquired a Ninja 250. Did 2 trackdays on it and was impressed. Decided to start racing on the 250 and slowly progress ahead.

Racing Experience
Started Club Racing with American Federation of Motorcycles (AFM) in the year 2012 as Novice on Production Legal 2008 Kawasaki Ninja 250

Professional Training
One on one Roadracing training – Ken Hill Coaching ; Roadracing & dirt riding training days – Rich Oliver’s Mystery School ; Dirt Skills & Sliding Training – Brok McAllister’s California Supermoto Schools
