Mangaluru, Nov 15, 2014: Hayabusa rider, Sushanth Shetty, 28, found a way out of Dubai finally. The help has come from Capt. Verma and his team from NMT Projects, a private independent Shipping and Transport Company that specializes in providing global transportation solutions and total logistics management of project related cargos.
Capt Verma, who loved Sushanth’s project, came on board as his logistics partner and within hours, Sushanth finished all the paperwork and the bike was loaded onto the NMT container.
Sushanth’s mother, Rekha said that her son will be flying to Mumbai as the current rules do not allow him to travel without a ’Seaman’s license’. "As on today, he is in Dubai. When the ship sails, he will catch a flight to Mumbai and from there, he will come to Bengaluru. Probably, he should be with us by the end of next week,’ she said.
Mangalore-born Sushanth is attempting to ride one of the world’s fastest motorbikes from the United Kingdom to Bengaluru. In this self-challenge, he has already completed close to 7,000 kms and reached Iran, from where he took a Dhow to Dubai. He started from London on October 25 on his Suzuki Hayabusa, capable of going at a speed of 300 kmph.
"He has many friends and relatives in Mumbai. So accommodation is not a problem. So far, he has not faced any problem regarding this," said Rekha. Sushanth, who completed his mechanical engineering at MS Ramaiah Institute and then MS in Motorsports Engineering from Coventry University, UK, works Ford Europe. The failure to get a Pakistan visa compounded his problem,else he could have reached his destination a couple of days back.All is well that ends well.
