The moment you turn 18-year-old, the first thing on any petrol head’s mind is to get himself registered for a vehicle license but the following years are limited to city rides, with an occasional sprint to a nearby destination for most of us. Lakshay Anand however, isn’t your everyday guy. This 18-year-old has already conquered the highest motorable road in the world, Khardung La. Interestingly, he doesn’t own any exotic tourer or even an entry-level performance motorcycle. Lakshay rides on a humble TVS Jupiter 110cc scooter. His Ladakh ride was for a noble cause – PADHEGA INDIA TABHI TOH BADHEGA INDIA.
Riding to Khardung La is not the only feat that he has achieved. He and his companion, the TVS Jupiter, have covered over 1,400 kms from Delhi to Mumbai in 33 hours. Lakshay captures his ride experiences on his YouTube channel Born To Ride so don’t forget to drop by and check out his videos and travelogues.
Meanwhile, let us share some details about his scooter. To embark upon such treacherous road trips, Lakshay had to customise his ride. So the stock TVS Jupiter is equipped with an LED bulb for the headlight, aftermarket LED Cree auxiliary lights for extra illumination and a pair of jerrycans to carry extra fuel. To stay connected, receive latest notifications and easy access to Google Maps, Lakshay has also installed a smartphone mount on the right-side mirror of his scooter. The mirrors are equipped with reflective stickers too so that he’s clearly visible after dark.
