Words fall short to describe the feeling of owning an RD 350. The RD 350 is easily one of those rare motorcycles that came in light years ahead of its time and still remains one of the fastest motorcycles that was introduced in India. The fan following of this motorcycle is not just based in India but a word wide phenomenon. We at IAMABIKER were lucky to be part of an RD meet in Bangalore. The ‘Bangalore RD350 Club’ was started by Vishal Agarwal who of-course is an 1984 RD owner himself. Learning at a very young age to handle the powerful motorcycle his passion for the same multiplied over the years, and out of this passion came the idea to unite the RD 350 owners from Bangalore. The Bangalore RD350 club started off with just 10 riders riding out on every Sunday and soon the numbers multiplied. With the current strength of well over a hundred it probably is one of the biggest of its sort in this part of the country. The group moderators Sahil Raz, Bharath Venkatesh, Srisha K and of course Vishal Agarwal coordinate every meet and make sure the RD family grows stronger by the day.
The Bangalore RD350 Club are determined to preserve these legendary machines and make sure they never fade away into the history books. With the age group of riders ranging from as young as 20 to as high as 79 the legend definitely attracts all age groups. The oldest member in the group is Mr Chakravarthy who even at 79 is probably one of the most enthusiastic member of the club and rides his 1984 RD 350 with utmost pride and confidence. ‘Drop a gear and disappear’ is the clubs tag line, and nothing probably can describe the RD better.If you are a RD owner yourself or just a big fan, you can always catch up the Bangalore RD350 Club on facebook and follow all details on upcoming meets and rides. It was a pleasure being invited to the meet and we definitely are coming again. You can check out photographs from the meet at the Bangalore RD 350 Club gallery.
