i do ride to Nashik frequently on most of the weekend to meet my family.
coming to Nashik this weekend (sat noon).
Yeah this is the big concern for Nashik bikers, as we dont have a shops for bike accessories (or may be i dont known any shop as such) , we have to rush to Mumbai or Pune to buy, even for helmets such as LS2, Cross, etc we need to visit Mumbai or Pune
There are lot of places nearby Nashik where we can ride, if we can plan out and meet for a Introductory G2G it would be great, and even the whether is also nice to visit the places nearby Nashik, some of places i would definitely like to visit :-
2). Sula Vineyard
5). Peth and lot more....
Lets plan out for a small Nashik G2G, whats say?
And one more advantage is we have one moderator in Nashik itself, so it would be a great Introductory G2G
