Motorcycle diaries

Stumbled upon these photographs of the ride to Konkan 2 yrs back. I am shamelessly picking up details from N's blog .

Date: 26th Jan-29th Jan 2007
Ride: 2 Bullets
Kms: 996 kms in 3 days
Starring:
1) N a.k.a - "onsite"- slowdown or not, our man is either in the US or Australia pimping his company to the goras. Bitches about it whenever he has the chance.

2) P a.k.a - "Boss man" - Onsite's ex-boss and good friend

3) A a.k.a -"The Guru" - more weird than most I have met. We worked together in Dubai in 2005.

4) Me



Waiting for the rest. First stop. Breakfast.








En route







Best ghat ever. Roads curve, smooth as silk and one-way.






Lunch/Dinner for most part of the trip







Konkan at night







Bullet on the water. Saved ourselves 2 hrs with this river crossing. With the boatman pissed drunk a bit scary.







The beaches of Chiplun









"The Guru" and I







Video: Listen in.....

Tempers running high on the first night. Lousy route planning did us in.

That was hilarious. Sounded like all of you were longing for home and a drink.
