Being a biker in Pakistan is probably the most thrilling yet tiring experiences. The way bikers have to carry themselves on the roads in Pakistan is definitely quite difficult.
We know you’ve witnessed it all. These roads are as unpredictable as it can get and any person with common sense will fear these roads.
We sat down with some hardcore motorcyclists in Pakistan and they had a lot to share regarding their experiences. “Being a biker here, you may have the upper hand in some cases,” said Fahad, who commutes to work on his bike every day. “I think the biggest advantage in a city like Karachi, is that even in traffic jams you can get to your workplace sooner and with less frustration as compared to a bigger vehicle.”
Fahad also added “But at the same time it is riskier and dangerous too. In a country like this with broken roads and hazards present at every corner, bikers suffer the most. Whether it is their fault or the other person’s, most accidents here occur because of rough riding and peoples’ lack of awareness about safety precautions.”
Another motorcyclist, Nashit, who’s more of a weekend warrior when it comes to biking, said “If I could change one thing, I would change the traffic pattern. I believe that the life of a biker in Pakistan would become much better if people start following the rules and traffic signals start working properly.”
On the other hand, Taha, a university student explained how previously his experiences on the road as a biker were very difficult. However, purchasing a YBR 125 recently has turned his life around as a biker. “Thanks to my YBR, my commutes have gotten really comfortable thanks to the proper seat positioning of the bike. Also, the tricky and damaged roads of my city are less troublesome when I’m riding on my YBR.”
Taha also recommends students and bikers like him to try the YBR. “I’m sure the YBR will make your life a whole lot easier!”
