    nice clicks.
    and the question remains why do i race?
    every finishing line is the begining of a new race.

    #i have learnt to manipulate my own adrenaline and the perception of biking is different.
    #overkill is underrated.
    #how random roads may appear there is always a destination.[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]
    #i don't subscribe to co-incidence,either it is the rider or the other moron on the road

    (:)people keeps on saying add spark to life, bajaj got hold of that idea and added an extra spark to bike.

    Default Day 1 - Chennai to Kutrallam

    Days before the Ride Start Day...

    Discussions and SMS's were getting more frequent as the ride date was nearing. Collection of the riding members details and helping each other in getting and making sure the bikes are in proper shape for the ride all were taking place. No of members who are gonna ride this time was keep on changing as till last minute we had someone joining and someone opting out... so finally we are 8 of us starting from chennai and meet 2 from coimbatore. Also we had a quite a range of bike from 150's to 650cc and with a coverage of 600kms on Day 1, we decided to split the starting group into two. Me, Sriram, Pratheep, Nishant, Jaffar, Aravinth decided to start by 4.30 from chennai - while Sunny and Ananth will be starting by their own time say some 2hours after we start as thier crusing speed is 120+

    Day 1:

    Alarm Rang by 3am and got a Good Morning message from Jaffar too, to make sure we are getting up , Plan was to me catch up with Nishant and ride to the starting point. With everything packed up last night - took a cold shower to refresh the senses and saddled up the bag on my FZ (been long since i toured on it so decided to ride on that) and rode down to meet up Nishant. Meanwhile got a message from Jaffer that he and Pratheep have reached the starting point. We soon reached there and by that time Aravinth has also joined by now. So we all were waiting for Sriram to join and within say 10 minutes or so - by 4.45 am he reached along with Aargee who was there to see us off and wished us a safe journey. With couple of pictures, we were all were ready to feed up our rides with some tarmac to munch. With some cool breeze through our mesh jackets we left the buzzing chennai behind and were heading towards Kutralam. After an hour of riding we took a break somewhere on the highway and started our journey back again. We were still wondering why Sriram bikes didnt give a trouble yet (on a lighter note) but we got the answer few minutes later when one by one the riders overtook sriram and when my turn came - checked with sriram - bike isn't ready to go beyond 80kmph so he stopped to fix that and pratheep decided to stay along and we left to stop after villupuram for breakfast by that time these 2 can catch up with us. From there on we were keep on riding and stopped after some toll to get some coffee and also to wait for others. soon sriram and partheep reached, by that time we completed our coffees, sriram worked on his bikes issue and we were ready to roll deciding the A2B near ulundurpettai as our breakfast stop. Nishant was leading and with his mind set at some 90 kms to cover the place, he kept on riding and we kept on following him and ended up crossing A2B. so we decided to stop at next town for breakfast, we doesn't want to ride into any town so we kept checking for any roadside motel for fodd and we found one. After reaching there, we informed Sriram and pratheep who were at A2B about our location and started gobbling some hot idlies, omelletes and poories . We gobbled up the food and quenching our thirst with water and cool drinks, we heard a grunt far away, we assumed that it should be the Ninja’s which started late and yes we were right - but a lorry was blocking the view on the road so by the time we rushed to wave hand Sunny crossed us and we were able to catch up Ananth who was trailing behind. Ananth gave the information that Sriram bike is again facing the issue, so they are coming up slowly. Soon sriram and pratheep reached us – took a short drinks break and we all were set to ride again. Ananth left first to catch up with sunny and wait somewhere ahead while we were on our usual riding formation. Subsequently after some kms, we saw Ananth waving hands in an service lane – where Sunny was also waiting. We parked our bike and had some cool drinks while others relaxed with some fags. After a relaxed break for 15 mins, we started our ride back – by this time Sun has come out and burning bright sending hot streaks over us.

    Breakfast Time




    With open Highway in front of us - bright sun on top of us and no shade to take a break – we were eagerly looking out for a place to stop. Our front -runners, Sunny and ananth had found a lonely Busstop and we followed them for the our must needed break. After sometime only we realized that there is a A2B few metres away but no one ready to move there as all started to relax – fetched some water and cool drinks to put out the heat. After some good 20 minutes rest, we tried to check whether the coimbatore riders who decided to meet us at Thirumangalam and got back news that they will reach there soon. We started our bike to Thirumangalam, enroute we filled our tanks before we fill up our tummies. We reached Thirumangalam, but due to some confusion in the direction to the hotel, we ended roaming around the highway for some 10kms and finally found the hotel, filled up some food for time being as the food wasn’t great

    Gearing up after our break





    Catching up with the Ninja

    Bus stop which gave us the much needed shelter








    After catching up with Karthik and Vijay, now we the group has become 10 and we started our ride to reach the destination. With more miles to cover up , we took only one break and were constantly focused on reaching our destination. We reached Kutralam around 7 pm and whole town in dark due to powercut (6 – 8 pm), luckily we had LED’s in the helmets which helped in following each of us without being getting lost in town. As we haven’t booked any rooms we first went to Tamilnadu Tourism guest house – the rooms were good but they doesn’t decent back-up power facility as we are expecting some 4 more hours of power, we skipped that place and finalized our stay in Heritage Resorts in Kutralam with 24*7 power back-up . The resort was set admist the Mango trees and we have own parking in front our Cottage . Everyone started to hit the bath for a much needed cold shower and then some chill beers to relax. While Sriram, Ananth, Pratheep and Jaffar decided to venture out to the nearby famour Parotta shop; rest of us decided to hang out in the living room and ordered dinner - We ended the long day after some chit-chats and discussion over different topics.
