  • “Dancing With The Hills”-Through Forests, Hills & Enchanting Green

    Prologue :The Original Plan:The Changed Route:The Onward Route:

    Bangalore/Kanakapura/Malavalli/Kollegal/B.R.Hills/Chamarajanagar/Sathyamangalam/Mettupalayam/Coonoor

    The route, as many of our friends on xBhp will endorse is truly scenic. Single road with sparse traffic through enchanting fields of green and lonely, sometimes scary forest roads and abundant twisties to thrill us bikers. So what was to be single hill climb to B.R Hills turned out to be a Triple (B.R.Hills, Sathyamangalam ghats and The Ooty Masinagudi ghat)

    Advice is a form of nostalgia.
    Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.

                  "Run for their money" ?? C'mon, just enjoying what we love when we can. Yes it's a lovely route and we know you've done that route many times. In fact we thought of you often on the way.

                  Thanks a lot Jay ! In fact the first ride was a little too short and the two day break gave us a chance to make up for it.

                  Take Care, Ride Safe & Thanks for the wishes

                  You are so right about the 'photographer'. She just loves to click away and we happily end up with a load of pictures !

                  Just uploading the second part now. The 'Bi son' was really angry at the 'Bi ker' especially since there was a baby bison around

                    Coonoor/Wellington

                    The house is spacious and comfortable and they are always happy to see us, often harping on their crazy aunt and uncle zooming away to various places on their bike!
                    The nights at Coonoor are always special. The house adjoins a heavily wooded area and animal sounds and sightings are common. After a day’s ride, a hot relaxing bath and then sitting around a fire sipping a warm drink, listening to the night sounds and swapping stories until we call it a day.

                    We rise early the next day and take the bike for a ride to experience the morning chill. Your fingers and earlobes get numb and it’s great to grab hot glass of tea and wrap your fingers around it.










                    At around 6.am we near the war memorial in Wellington and we are just in time to experience the daily ritual of soldiers paying homage to their brothers who lost their lives in the wars. It truly was a very special moment. As the soldiers stand at the memorial and the wreath is laid, everybody stops- vehicles, morning walkers and all. As we all stand in solemn silence in the chilly morning and the bugle is blown and and the soldiers salute respectfully, our hearts reach out in gratitude to our brave soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice of their lives so that we can enjoy our freedom as we do today. It’s truly an emotional moment and we return with renewed respect to our soldier brothers.
