Thala Ajith says that he has a reason behind his biking. Speaking to a leading daily, the actor said, "Basically, this trip was not just a fun ride on a luxury bike. I would like to create awareness about safety gear and the importance of wearing a helmet to the passionate bikers in the city."

Thala Ajith Said
I would also like to motivate people who ride from home to their workplace to wear a helmet and other safety gear.
Ajith says that one may find the safety measures expensive, but if a mishap occurs, the basic MRI scan itself would cost us close to Rs 7000.
Prevention Is Better Than Cure
Ajith believes in prevention is better than cure. He also added, "So, it is better to invest that money in safety measures rather than spending your hard-earned money for the after-effects of road accidents."
Better To Sweat Than Bleed
When asked about the people suffering from hot and humid in the safety gears, Ajith said, "It is better to sweat than bleed."
