Yet An­other Mile­stone

Bike India - - THE RIGHT LINE -

THIS MONTH BIKE IN­DIA CEL­E­BRATES ITS 12TH AN­NIVER­SARY. The mag­a­zine has grown from strength to strength over the past 12 years and for this suc­cess i would like to thank all our read­ers and man­u­fac­tur­ers for their support in mak­ing Bike in­dia the num­ber one bike mag­a­zine in the coun­try. This would not have been pos­si­ble with­out your un­stint­ing support.

every month we bring you the lat­est news, ride sto­ries, first rides, road tests, and a lot more — all this would not be pos­si­ble with­out the team at Bike in­dia. you will al­ways read the name of the au­thor of the ar­ti­cle in the by-line or see our pic­tures in the mag­a­zine, but what you don’t see is the hard work put in by the un­sung he­roes — the de­sign­ers, photographers, and the copy desk edi­tor — along with the mar­ket­ing team that puts in a lot of hard work to gen­er­ate the funds so that we can bring out this fan­tas­tic mag­a­zine for our read­ers.

From the first of last month the Goods and ser­vices Tax (GST) was in­tro­duced in the coun­try and, as ex­pected, most man­u­fac­tur­ers have the same ex-show­room price for their bikes, whereas some others have dif­fer­ent pric­ing be­cause of the ad­di­tion of freight charges. now the next step should be a uni­form ve­hi­cle reg­is­tra­tion fee across the coun­try with the road tax be­ing levied on fuel. Then one will not have to re-reg­is­ter one’s bike when one moves from one state to an­other.

learn to re­spect your own ve­hi­cle and, more so, others’ bikes and cars when you try to squeeze your way through that small gap and end up scratch­ing your bike and some­one else’s bike or car. Please give other peo­ple space on the road they de­serve.

This month we have quite a few ex­clu­sive rides for you, so en­joy the mega is­sue and al­ways ride within your ca­pa­bil­ity — ride safe and en­joy your ride.
