We started our 7th charity ride and this time we chose Tobu, Mon, as our main place. Strapped on our iron butts thumping in unison we made our journey. We started in the morning with a prayer from a rider friend’s grandma and grandpa. When we reached Mokokchung, suddenly one of our rider’s chain socket got damaged and while we were looking up for help, a local shopkeeper was gracious enough to help us. He led us to take shelter in the Sangratsu government school. There we meet the headmaster who gave us accommodation and made us feel at home.
The next day, we started our journey again and came across many scenic beauties and bad roads and shower too but everything was just part of the journey. We reached Tobu by late night, and we were lucky enough to meet the officer in charge of the Tobu police station who sheltered us for the night. Perhaps, we never mentioned about our charity ride to the village people because we wanted it this way.
It was a Sunday morning, we met one of the village folk and told him about our charity ride and why we were there. We were invited to the pastor’s house and later we were glad to attend the Sunday service. At the first instance, the people inside the church were shockingly observing us because we were all dressed up in our biking attires and safety kits like small knife, and some of them thought we were some kind of militants. But as the service began, the pastor introduced us and told them about the purpose of our visit by which time we were at ease. The president of the club presented a special biker’s song which amazed the youngsters. He also shared about the motorcycling in a positive way. After which, we distributed packets of chocolate to children and handed our charity things to the church members. We had brought some shawls for the oldest women-folk, and a torch each for the oldest men. We also provided some basic medicines, clothes for young, adult and old, stationary items like pencil for school children. Our special thanks goes to one of our lady bull rider in Dimapur who serve in the police force for donating some beautiful clothes, and two of our club members also donated some basic medicines  towards this charity ride. We left contented and on the way back, one of our riders bike had a flat tyre during a heavy downpour. Fortunately enough, we again met the 11 IRB coy who were stationed between the Chang and Konyak boundary. They invited us to spend the night with them and it was like a family reunion. We genuinely respect them for the service they are rendering to society. We moved on the next day, and our last night was spent camping below the Doyang bridge. Every charity ride we had so far undertaken was all self-sponsored. The smile of the young village kids and old folks made our journey worthwhile and has encouraged us to drive more charity rides in future. We would love to invite any riders to join us for the next charity ride. We are called The Tribe because we don’t believe in tribalism.  We are just a family of tribes from the northeastern states. And we ride for humanity.
