ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Vasudeva Acharya
Vasudeva Acharya hails from Mangalore and is now a retired business owner enjoy his retirement travelling on his motorcycle as often as possible. Acharya first started riding on a Rajdoot when he was just 16 years old... and in 1972 bought his 350 cc Royal Enfield. Riding at that time was limited and for more than 30 years life took over with business and family being his top most priorities.
When Acharya turned 61, in an act of serendipity a 350 Royal Enfield was brought to his house for safe keeping... little did its owner know that it would rekindle a new love affair with the classic. Some quick road trips to nearby places fueled this age old passion. Soon thereafter Acharya planned a 21 day road trip to Ladakh.
Over the last 8 years Acharya has done several hundred rides, riding most every weekend. Some of his longer trips are - Bangalore to Dibrugarh, Bangalore to Bhutan, Bangalore to Gujarat & Rajasthan, Kanyakumari to Ladakh and he has crossed over 5 lakh kilometers of riding. Riding across different terrains, cultures, geographies Acharya's story of being on the road is rich with anecdotes, true life encounters with amazing human beings and the unsurpassed trill adventure.
