It is indeed sad to hear the loss of another member from the biking community in a road accident.
, a 44-year-old woman biker from Jaipur lost her life in a road mishap in Madhya Pradesh on Tuesday.
A tragic incident indeed when as per reports she lost control of her motorcycle which led to serious injuries. Sadly her passion for riding and the dreams she had has suddenly come to an abrupt end.
It is a devastating agony to her family, fans and her loved ones.
While we ride on roads covering long distances, meeting people and sharing knowledge and making memories, it is also important ride safely on the roads keeping speed limits in mind. No matter how careful we are there come up sudden situations on roads when we are bound to loose control due to our reflex action not matching up with the speed we are riding and thus end up with an accident.
In most cases reacting to someone else’s wrong move on the road ends up with an accident. ‘Speed thrills but kills’; we all have heard this phrase many times but overlooked enjoying the thrill of riding. Traffic discipline and rules are meant for all and should be followed.
Racing tracks where there are no obstructions are the right place to ride in high speed. Only attired in proper protective riding gears should be take on our rides particularly long distance riding.
While I pray for the soul of Veenu Paliwal to rest in peace, l also ask God to give strength for the loved ones to bare the irreplaceable loss.
RIP Veenu Paliwal
