30. Shaster vidyaa atae ghorhae di savaari da abhiaas karnaa - Train in the skills of weaponary and horsemanship.

 

I think it could be optional since in the rehat maryada we are given these days doesn't really say.

Though it would be nice to learn both as you never know when you could need it.

I would say in the modern world, that horsemanship has translated into some impressive motorcycle use...for...uh...justice.

well if you look at how warfare is done today, i dont see how motorcycles would be of any use, because now battles happen 200-1000 feet away with rifles, and there is never hand to hand combat so riding a motorcycle into the battle would just be suicide. the only sensible place where motorcycles would make sense is in guerilla warfare, like hit and runs or assassinations. an example from sikh history would be like harjinder singh jinda and sukhdev singh ji sukha, where they assassinated the enemies of the khalsa panth such as lalit makhan and general arun vadiya. jinda sukha assassinated them both on a motorcycle.

Motorcycles are largely replaced in modern warfare, you're right, but they were also not invented that long ago for warfare.  Warfare didn't have drones then etc, but it certainly had plenty of bombs and bullets.  The soldiers that used them in war, are the ones that popularized them int he USA when returning from war.  That is how all the MC gangs were formed.

In recent post 84 sikh history, many shaheed used their horsemanship skills, on motorcycles to pull off some awesome hits.  Like you said.

They are equally epic! You can't beat this old school rock, trust me. This kinda music makes you forget where you are sort of thing.
