xBhp, India’s oldest and biggest lifestyle motorcycling platform, community and print magazine since 2002, has started out on a 15,000 km road trip from New Delhi, India, to Sri Lanka, by the way of Nepal, Bhutan, Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore. This ride spanning 11 countries in 90 days is called the #GreatAsianOdyssey.
The xBhp Dominar Great Indian Odyssey reached their second country, Nepal, on 18 October 2019. The team was scheduled to meet local press and fans at around 6 pm at a popular motorist theme café in the busy capital city of Kathmandu, however, the party could be here only around 8 pm… courtesy of the equally popular Nagdhunga traffic congestion. Having arrived hungry and tired, the host Genesis Café managed by the resident motorcycle enthusiast and chef Ateet Shrestha served some tasty treats before the meet was underway.
Fans and press gathered around the xBhp team to soak themselves into the team’s experience over the creation of xBhp, the lives of team members, the places they’ve been, and the journeys they’ve made on the numerous motorcycles they’ve driven. There was a short interaction session where different questions were asked to the fans and to the xBHP team. The xBhp also showed us some of their videos including a rap song made by the team especially for motorcyclists. At the end, everyone had a small photo session accompanied with fun informal chat, and the event concluded on a high note. Their ride will end in Sri Lanka on the 17 January 2020. xBhp says the goal is to showcase the beauty of the region to India. Involved in the endeavor are 11 riders from various walks of life in India.
