    Ride a motorcycle if you want to live free, but above all ride it safe and make others' lives safe.

    If there is a "pukur" nearby (hardly there will be nowadays) and if it's flooded then expect fishes to swim across right in front of you and almost all of them are edible

    4-5 hours of medium rain can turn the whole Kolkata into a pond !
    Be rest assured, some of the characteristics of a pond will be there.
    Hope to meet you people on Saturday.

    We saw a lot of fish. Mostly in my plate and then they went straight into my stomach Doi Maach and Sharson Maach, hilsa and katla and then the million types of Sandesh and Mishti Doi. Am loving it

    So, the overall experience was fantastic. Reached there early. As bikers started coming from different places, interactions followed. Took a few snaps. Then the XBHP team arrived. Had photo-shoots. Curious locals admired the Busas, The R1s, The Bandits. Due to professional commitments, I had to leave early after wishing the team Best of Luck!
    One unfortunate incident happened when all of us started towards the CCD. Subhankar crashed due to a stray dog and a member of the XBHP core team who was behind them crashed as well. But, apparently the injury was not too grave as they were in full riding gears. As I had to leave, no news about the same thereafter. Hoping they are fit by now and ready for another ride.
    Some snaps:
