  • [Photo Feature]: my solo ride to konkan

    It was now or then, i was confused a bit is it possible for me to do a solo ride ever? Since i am a banker by profession it was tired since the January, February and march month, the way we called and the whole India called a Financial Year End. totally tired , during the month of March there were some encouraging moments came in my life, The Big Change in my passion had happend. The GIR Meet at vadodara, where i got a Chance to meet the GIR members the core XBHP Team , sunny sir, Old Fox Sir, Sunil G, everyone but none other than experienced solo rider MR Abhishkh Bhatt.. that was a turning point ..
    Abhishekh Shared his views about the solo riding , things to do and dont while solo riding, that time i decided to go for it.. once i finished my closing activities it was decided by me to go to KONKAN, i took leaves for 20 days it was a happiest moment of my life that i was about to ride solo to konkan my dream destination...
    Finished my closing activities on 9th of the april and it was planned that i was about to leave on 9th, but problem came in my way one of my colleague wanted to go for the leave on same day for 2 days, then my ride was postponded for two more days. i was disappointed a bit, so finally on 10th of April i started my journey in the evening at 6 pm from Limdi (A place which is on border of three states Gujarat, Rajastan and Madhya Pradesh) to Baroda i reached baroda at 9 pm baroda is about 150 kms away from limdi.. then i decided to stay in Baroda since i was avoiding to ride at night though i have ridden many times in the night but this time i was doing solo so i took my first hault at baroda where i can able to attend an unplanned G2G with Pravin Kumar, Ankit Shringi..

    The next day Early mornig i woke up got ready for the ride the destination was mumbai.. started my ride at 6 am .. it was a awesome day, cool climate exactly we riders wanted for riding. i was riding at the decent speed of 80 km/h since bharuch is on the way one more XBHPian from Ankaleshwar Mr Prashant Soni who is one of my good friend wanted to meet up so i took a break at bharuch at hotel Gyan Sagar.. we meet for more than one hour spoken few good things about the biking touring, then it was time to move on..

    prashant wished me all the best for the ride.. we splited up.. i moved towords the mumbai and he went for his job.. took 2 can of Redbull then from Bharuch i started to just reached Ankaleshwar then i gonna know that there is a puncture in my bike and the fuel is also getting low, took a break @ ankaleshwar, top up air, and fuel too.. moved
    took another Break at Vapi where one of my friend stays it was my First redbull break since it was arround 210 kms that i ridden without stop so had to stop. i decided to stop at krishnas place, got a can of a redbull and moved on again.. it was superb NH8 so i could not able to control my self and took a pictures of the NH8
    then i directly stopped at mumbai at my home.. reached home safely .. The Next day was my Birthday, and that day i wanted to continue my ride but somehow my parents didnt allowed me to go.. anywhere but they did one thing that they wanted me to go to Pune and finished some unfinished work at pune so on the 13th april i went to pune by MUmbai Pune NH( forgotten the Number) the work was so unfinished that it took 10 More days to complete i was in lot of tension whether i am gonna finish y ride or not but the day came 22nd April exactly after 8days( during the 8 days i finished my work as well as made my bike in a position where i can able to go to konkan at any point of time.) i started my ride again from pune this pic is taken at Tamhini ghat near pune.. to Devrukh the reason was my best friends wedding that too in konkan called my dad that im going to konkan as decided.. went wrooooooooomm
    took my first hault at Mahad for the lunch. is konkan . took a lunch and started again it was a stunning NH17 greenery on both of the sides of the road, less traffic i was riding at the speed 80km/hr , it was beautiful roads i was riding on.. then again a Kashedi Ghat came after the Poladpur approx 20 kms of Ghat.. superb for cornering wanted to drink some water so i had another break at kashedi ghat.. the next stop was again a Ghat at Chiplun namely Vashishti ghat

    sangameshwar was about 60 kms away from Chiplun at it was 5.30 so finished photography and started my bike didnt stop anywhere but just on the way to devrukh just after sangameshwar i realized the photogenic place is here , where beautiful Coconut trees and the mango orchards were there at the riverside i could not control my self stopped imediatly took my cam started catching the pics.. few of my red devil she was awesome during the ride and standing still.. reached devrukh to attend the marriage ceremony of my friend after the ceremony on next day i took a rest and visited surrounded places did some musti with the old friends.. again started my return journey. on 25th of april i came back to mumbai .. had to return back to gujarat so after attending another marriage ceremony on 26th of april .. on 28th i started my journey back to Limdi.. it was an awesome experiance of riding solo ,, speacial Thanks to Mr Abhishekh Bhatt for Guiding me During My Ride.. and to my RED Devil Without Which It Was not Possible

    None of the images are working, partly because they're on facebook, and also because they're not correctly coded.

    Anyways, those of Facebook, please see this page for the pics: Facebook


    @ Shardul: I would suggest that you upload those pics on an image sharing site like imageshack.us, flickr, etc. and then choose each image's "Direct Link" and enclose it between IMG tags... That will work.
    Another (AND A BETTER) easy working way is to Open an FB Image from the album, right-Click on the image and select "Copy Image URL" or "Copy Image Link". Then paste the same link between IMG tags and it will be visible to all members, Facebook or not. You can edit your first post and add images.
