Family Bikers - Taking Biking to a New Level

You must have heard of biker gangs like the Hells Angels, the Bandidos and the Mongols Motorcycle Club, on the lighter side there are also mountain bikers who loves biking in mountain terrains, there are those extreme bikers who jumps and flies through obstacles in their motor bikes. In short there are thousands of ways how a motorcycle can be used. There are also different kinds of bikers. But have you heard of Family Bikers.

Family Bikers are a new breed of bikers commonly found in Asian countries like India, China, Vietnam, Thailand, Nepal and Cambodia. Though it may look pretty safe but they are the most extreme of all bikers. Let me not speak for all the countries but at least in India they are the most adventurous and the most extreme bikers I’ve seen.

No, family Bikers don’t ride in Harley’s or race bikes. Their rides are normally very basic, in most case it’s a 150 cc bike but the extreme part is, in a bike big enough for two, you will find the whole family cruising through the busy streets. It can be just the father and two other kids or it can be the whole family (dad, 3 kids and the wife).

Why Family Biking is the most extreme form of biking? These riders don’t give a damn to safety, plus the whole families participate and besides the person controlling the bike no other rider will wear helmets.
