Ajith Kumar, also known as ‘Thala Ajith,’ is one of the popular actors in the Tamil film industry. Ajith is known for his love for bikes. In 2021, the actor embarked on his long-planned cross-country road trip on his motorcycle. Apart from riding through the length and breadth of India, the actor also managed to ride in Nepal, Bhutan, and even some parts of Europe. He has planned a world road trip on his motorcycle. During his ride in Nepal, his fellow rider organized the itinerary, and Ajith was so happy with the experience that he decided to gift his fellow rider a BMW bike worth Rs 12 lakh.
After receiving the gift, Sugat Satpathy wrote, “After a long time, life seems to have meaning. At the end of the same year, I got incredibly lucky. I would say I felt privileged to get in touch with Mr. Ajith Kumar #ajithkumar, who is one of the biggest superstars in the Tamil movie industry. He is also an avid biker who rides an Adventure bike with pure class.
Later, I organized a complete North-east tour for him and rode with him on my trustworthy, years-old Duke 390. Following the ride, he promised to do one more tour of Nepal and Bhutan with me as part of his world tour plan, which we recently completed on May 6th. Throughout the ride, we created many unforgettable memories, covered incredible miles, and witnessed many beautiful sunsets and sunrises. They say you meet the nicest people on a motorcycle, and I’d say I met the best possible human being. Regardless of the fame he has, I was star-struck by his humbleness and happy-go-lucky aura. There’s a simple man behind the superstar who is willing to live life in a larger way! And by larger, I don’t mean luxury, but peace of mind.
This F850gs right here means so much to me, rather than being just a motorcycle. It was gifted to me by him (#ajithkumar). YES! IT’S A GIFT. From Anna to me, with lots of love. He didn’t think twice. He just wanted me to have this beautiful-looking F850GS, capable enough to explore the globe. Words will fall short in describing the role this person has in my life, but yes, we vibe in the same tribe. He made me feel more like an elder brother who wishes only and only the best for me, expecting nothing in return. You’re the best, Anna! Can’t wait to munch more miles with you.”
