My journey with Quess started in 2007 and up till now it has been more than exciting .Since then, I have seen this company growing and I take immense pride in being a part of the Quess family! More often, I have been asked about working with my father-in-law and to that I always say that we both have that understanding of keeping our personal and professional lives separate. He is my father at home and boss at office. We both have learnt to keep it that way from the time I joined this organization and it has worked quite well for both of us. Given the kind of vision he has for the company, it is not easy fulfilling his expectations but I love it because I know at the end of the day there is always something I will get to learn from him.
I always had the passion to travel, but when I bought my first Royal Enfield in 2006 I decided to tour on the two wheeler and found it to be the most adventurous mode of travelling. I started my tours with short rides and soon those short rides turned into long tours. Now, it has become a ritual for me to plan a bike ride trip annually.
I have been riding since 2007 and my father-in-law joined in 2013. Back in his days, he was an active biker and when he actually saw the passion I had for biking, he came on board. Now, we share that passion and plan most of our tours together. We plan our regular rides 3-4 months in prior and major rides, a minimum of 8-12 months in prior. We also ensure that we do have a back-up before we head out and our escapades do not affect the business. Biking is more like a stress buster for us.
Together, we have covered complete South India, Goa, Assam, Leh-Ladakh circuit and an international tour called the Tri-nation Tour to Bhutan & Nepal in 2017. During our tri-nation tour, Ram sir’s brother, Pappan had also joined us for the tour. We completed the whole circuit (India – Bhutan – Nepal) in just 21 days. That was a once in a lifetime experience for me. During our trip, we experienced almost everything from good roads to no roads, tough terrains to amazing people.
During the trip, seeing Ram Sir and Pappan Uncle, who are 60+ years of age, I realized that age is just a number, and it’s all in our minds only. There wasn’t a day when they said, “It’s enough, let’s just head back or call off the ride”. This ride not only brought us closer as a family but we also got a chance to acknowledge each other’s riding skills as riding partners.
“Face your fears and live your dream. You just have one life and you deserve to live it to the fullest, without any regrets.
That, for us is the embodiment of I am Quess!”
