Riding for a Cause:
We have seen so many cases of violence against women, of all ages. Some of us feel sad, agitated, and pinpoint fingers at our Judiciary system but very few of us actually take steps to spread awareness about it. In May 2015, he along with 5 other bikers covered 9000 kms across 14 states of India in just 15 days for a good cause : "Stop Violence against Women". In this journey, they visited several NGOs that promote women empowerment to spread awareness about this grim issue.

Harish Rossi also provides an insider's guide on what to expect when dating a biker:
For many people regardless of their gender identity, bikers are considered to be quite sexy and attractive , they are great adventurers. If you are one who considers themselves to have wanderlust, or in other words a soul which loves to travel, then dating a biker might just be the best decision you will ever make. From hilly terrain to beaches and deserts- the sky is the limit.
Harish Rossi also believes that finding happiness in little things. Just an opportunity to get away on their bike and a glimpse of the scenic beauty is enough to keep them satiated. And he always have the answer to what to give others for any possible event!
However, one assumption that people really have to get rid of according to bikers themselves is that they are not cautious and are thrill chasers. There is a fine line between people who ride a bike to show off and those who make biking their passion.
