Sadhguru on his love for bikes has said that "there was a time when I literally lived on a motorcycle. When I rode somewhere, I never checked into a hotel, I just slept on my motorcycle. I would just put my bag on the motor cross bar and the handle-bar, lie down and have a sound sleep. People used to ask, “How can you sleep? You will fall down.” I would say, “Don’t worry, I will not fall off a motorcycle. I may fall when I’m walking, but not off my motorcycle,” because it was such a big part of everything that I was doing."

(LatestLY had earlier reported that Sadhguru bought Ducati Multistrada 1260 Pikes Peak Edition, based on the claims of Ducati India on social media in general and Instagram in particular. The same story has now been edited.)
