    Thumbs up Ride to Mount Abu - An oasis in the desert

    Ride to Mount Abu - An oasis in the desert

    10 Feb'11 - 13 Feb'11


    Riders -
    Sachin - Karizma ZMR
    Viraj - Yamaha R15
    Puneet - Karizma R


























    From the beginning of Dec'10 we were planning to ride to Mount Abu however to due to various reasons it got postponed.
    That time very little did I know about this beautiful hill station which is the highest peak in Aravalli range of Rajasthan.
    It is referred to as 'an oasis in the desert', as its heights are home to rivers, lakes, waterfalls and evergreen forests.
    With so much heard about this place I badly wanted to tour Mt.Abu.
    It was very hard convincing my parents to allow me to go for this ride as I was just back from New year's Goa ride. However few days down the line I managed to convince my parents and got the most important job done that is getting my leaves approved.
    [FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]I love riding bike in group so decided to put in on our famous Mumbai thread about this trip. Apart from me & Viraj who were confirmed riders coming for this trip we found a new bee N4Speed [Puneet] who saw my post on the thread and was ready to come this all exciting trip. Few people did try to come but could not make it so we were down to 3 riders finally making it for this ride.

    Once everything was sorted the trip was all in the making and ride was planned to be done in Feb'11.

    Before we get into the ride to Mount Abu it is important for me to give a vote of thanks to few people as without them the trip would n't have been successful.

    Satyen Poojary - Thanks you for suggesting Mt.Abu when I was in dilemma whether to visit Mt.Abu or Udaipur.
    An experience of riding with you and all the tips and your valuable advices that you gave me before this ride was of tremendous help.

    Viraj & Puneet - My fellow riders from Thane. You guys rock. Starting from planning everything about the trip to helping each other whenever there was any issues. You guys were always there.


    Many more interesting things coming up....Stay glued
