AN AVID BIKER WITH A STRONG PASSION FOR RIDING: SUPARNA SARKAR


She is an avid Biker with a strong passion for motorcycles. She has always been fascinated by Super Bikes and the parking lot still remains her favorite spot at any given place! She is a Software Engineer but gradually motorcycling grew so much in her persona that she chose it as a full-time profession, leaving a well-paying job of a Consultant in an I.T. firm after over 6.5 years of work experience. She is riding motorcycles since a decade now, presently owning a Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 named ‹Kaaynaat› and a Classic 350 called ‹Shehanshah›. As a daughter of an Agra based defence personnel she has been raised as a strong and independent girl from an early age. She is popularly known as ‹SuparBiker› in the biking community. It has been a challenging yet fulfilling journey for her so far as in India there are limited career opportunities for biking professionals but being a headstrong Bong girl, she is working hard to fulfill her dreams to inspire more and more people, especially women to start riding motorcycles, and creating awareness about safe riding etiquettes.
