13 I have become a father..!!

Being a dad means more responsibility and less time.. so what does it mean for the biker and blogger for a "biker next door"?

If there is a long pause in between blog posts.. means that I am just being a dad or I am out there riding somewhere

We have been blessed with a baby boy on 23’rd Nov 2011. By the grace of God both the child and mother is in good health and doing fine. Everything in my life has been a gradual change so far, but the birth of my son marks a radical change in my life/lifestyle.

The joy of being a dad is yet to sink in but already the drastic changes in my life is very evident. For example, sleeping is an activity which now is accomplished in “Power Naps”. Patience now comes without any effort. And it’s amazing how such a tiny individual demands so much laundry service. Everything in my life now revolves around our bundle of joy. Also for the first time in my life I am really glad that I have a 4 wheeler..!!

So does it mean that my biking days are over? Also what repercussion could it have on my online bike diary, “Bike Chronicles of India”?

Changes for the "Biker" in me

Safety for my myself and my family is the utmost priority now. It’ll be the car which will carry around my family.

I have already sold off my Pulsar 220 DTS-Fi a couple of months back. But I would still like to keep the biker flame in me alive and get a new motorcycle. Whatever I decide to get as my next model, I certainly won’t be using it for commuting. I'll be using my next motorcycle mostly for occasional weekend/pleasure rides (if I am lucky enough to spare some time).

All the riding gear, all the time:

Riding on special occasions/pleasure riding now would make it possible for me to ride with complete protection and with full riding attire/gear. I already have a good Helmet, riding Jacket and a good pair of riding gloves. A pair of riding pants and riding boots are next in line and will get them too whenever I get my next motorcycle.

Changes for the "Blogger" in me

After marriage, I was finding it real tough just to post 10-12 posts in a month. After becoming a father, making just 5-8 posts is a month seems to be a really Herculean effort. But after 5 years of blogging I don’t have the heart to let my blog die. Therefore it’s not a promise but I’ll definitely try to post/update my blog whenever I find some spare time.

So whenever there is a long pause in between posts, it either means that:

  • I am just being a dad or..

  • I have managed to squeeze some time for myself and out there riding somewhere
