When you go the extra mile its never crowded. There are very few people who actually have what it takes to follow their heart. One of them is Jasminder Singh AKA Jaysn, an extrovert on a bike, unfolding a bunch of new adventures every day. Jaysn is a Delhi based entrepreneur who is a very keen biker, an automotive vlogger and an entertainer. Here is an exclusive interview with Jaysn
What inspired you to create such unique content?
A major source of motivation is the passion that I have for for high-end two-wheelers and long-distance road trips. Even before I was on social media, I used to record my Sunday rides using an action camera. The roads, the landscapes and the thrill to meet new people while discovering new stories every time was my drug.
Who is Jasminder Singh AKA Jaysn in real life?
Jaysn is a self-made entrepreneur who left a regular 9 to 5 job to open his own graphic design agency. He enjoys being around people, has great communication skills and is a techie. Basically an IT guy who loves to do things differently, does photography as a passion and has an unconditional love for two wheelers.
What has been the role of your family in your journey so far?
My family has always been very supportive. It did take some time for them to realize that this is a career and not a hobby. They have seen me and raised me as a child who cannot resist travelling and experimenting with new things
Which riding group did you initially join? Of all riding groups, you have joined which one is your favorite, and why?
Soon after buying my first superbike (Hyosung GT650), I joined GODS (Group Of Delhi Superbikers). It is still one of the most auspicious superbike groups of Delhi. I left the group within the first year due to some personal reasons, and thereafter I never joined any other riding group because I enjoy my riding when I am all alone or with very few riders who I resonate with as friends.
A moment that you cherish the most in your career till date
The very first time I took my Limited Edition Suzuki Hayabusa all the way up to Khardung La (Leh Ladakh), in 2018. This was one of the most difficult road trips ever because no one had ever completed the full Leh Ladakh Circuit (Delhi – Jammu – Leh – Manali – Delhi) on a Hayabusa. Most people suggested not to take my Hayabusa on Leh Manali Route because it’s one of the most difficult terrains and can damage the bike too.
Completing the whole circuit successfully without any breakdown was a heart touching moment for me
Who is your favorite Youtube star and why?
I love a bunch of them, but if I have to choose one then it would be Mumbaiker Nikhil. He is really good at vlogging, very dedicated, does smart brand integrations.
Which was the first bike you ever owned?
I used to ride my dad’s bike Yamaha RX100 when I first got my driving license. In fact, I still have it in a mint condition. I have owned many bikes ranging from Royal Enfield, Pulsar, Hero Honda Karizma etc. that were bought by my dad. The first-ever bike I bought with my own money was a used Bajaj Avenger 220.
How important is riding gear?
It is very very important. I repeat, it is indispensable. I always support and encourage responsible riding with proper riding gears. And as far as I know, riding gears are a mandatory to join any riding club/group all over the country.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I have received a tremendous amount of love from my Jasyn Nation family. In the next five years, I would like to hold some world records by doing extreme road trips on my Hayabusa. I have been a fortunate rider, who has traveled pan India on a motorcycle (almost all states of India). With God’s grace, I would like to have at least 5 more different motorcycles in my garage. I would like to shape the Indian biking community on digital platforms and encourage it as a separate industry of its own
Some tips for aspiring Youtubers.
Don’t Hurry, Don’t Worry, Have Patience, a lot of it. Things will take time but don’t lose hope. If things are not moving the way you want them to, then change your approach. Keep moving, go with the flow. Be original and try to do things differently.
Pros and cons of being in the digital media industry.
Pros: Great reach, a lot of opportunities/potential while experimenting with your own talent.
Cons: Making videos can be very time consuming. The ever changing trends and the amount of competitiveness that gets onto the same genre of creators can get challenging for everyone.
Which is your dream bike and why?
I want to buy Kawasaki H2 because it’s something totally out of the league. It’s very fast, exclusive, and rare. It is extravagantly expensive for me right now (40Lakh+), but I will do my best to own one in this life.
