I am Vrushali Rhatwal

An IT Professional. I have been riding two wheelers for almost 20 years now. I started Pro-riding, with my 2017 Bajaj Dominar 400 in March 2017 because I love to travel and so far have traveled most of India. I am also a budding writer.

My association with riding began when ..

My mother was a motorist. She used to carry me and my siblings on her Bajaj M80 and we used to travel around the city of Kolhapur. I had learned riding a two wheeler from her. My first bike was father’s  Hero Honda CD 100 SS, then the Hero Honda Splendor.

My previous rides were –

I had bought my first bike sixth months before my first job. It was a gift from my father as I had got a job through Campus Selection. It was Apache 150 – the first Apache by TVS Motor. That time I got the nickname of  ‘The Apache gal‘. I had even started a blog by that name. Later I modified this bike for Off-roading. I am a One Bike Woman. It was Apache 150 – ‘Black  Pearl’ – always.

My options were –

I was thinking of the 2017 KTM Duke 390 and the Royal Enfield Himalayan. Duke was really good when it comes to handling. However, Himalayan was a totally different game. It had power and stability. But Dominar was the one because it had a balance of both. One test ride and I was hooked, I booked Dom the next day.

I chose my current bike because –

The 2017 Bajaj Dominar 400 is all about 373cc of raw power. Plus its handling is really awesome. I don’t feel the weight when I ride it. While cornering, the side stand of my bike easily touches the road. That’s the best aspect of this bike. The design of Dominar is to die for. Not a single journey of mine is complete without people giving it a second look.

The number of kilometers clocked so far –

23,000 Km total I have rode on this bike
