    “What would he not do for her,
    The daughter of the spice-seller;
    She who smelt of cloves and cinnamon,
    Whose laughter had the timbre of ankle-bells,
    Whose eyebrows were like black wisps of the night and…. And…

    Whose hair was the night itself?
    .
    ...
    .....
    For her he would cross the salt desert..!”


    ….

    The Ride:

    Mumbai to Delhi:
    Stay in Udaipur for a night, and then start again the next morning towards Delhi
    Delhi stay: for 4 days, why… “Because, I love you.”
    Delhi to Mumbai: 2 days of riding with a night stay at the mid-point, i.e. Udaipur and the ride to Mumbai the next morning.



    The Bike:

    KTM Duke:
    Flawless bike, one of the best I have ever seen. It performs and then performs without any shudder. And the worst mentor, that is me. I was constantly riding my bike at speeds in excess of 100-110. Rarely did I come down at sane speeds and my bike kept performing flawlessly and never complained!
    No problems encountered, not even a single puncture or any engine stopping due to overheating. The rate at which bike was getting heated was the same rate it was being cooled down and temperature was always in controllable limits.

    Kms Covered: 3150.

    Time taken:
    4days, with 12 hours of riding each day, but why… “Because I love U


    Because I love U: (part 1)
    Day 1 of riding: Mumbai to Udaipur.



    Because I love U: Part 2
    Day 2 of riding: Udaipur to Delhi.



    Because I love U: Part 3... Love Lived Insanity
    Day 3 of riding: Delhi to Udaipur.



    Because I love U: (part 4)
    Day 4... Dodo the holy cow... Page 18

              Because I Love You... Part 1

              Because I love U... Part 1:

              Hi,

              I am Ankit, a very normal guy next door with very little aspirations.

              This trip is something I would have never dared, had it not been for U

              The night before the ride: and the memories eclipsed the thought process...

              nights… Restless.

              We didn’t talk for over a month. I used to listen to music in nights and end up crying,
              then fall numb and sleep, just to wake up like a zombie going to office and coming back.



              shaam se aankh mein nammi si hai
              dafan karr do humme ke sans mille
              nabaj kuch derr se thami si hai
              aaj phir aap ki kammi si hai

              koi rishta nahin raha phir bhi ek tasvir lazmi si hai
              shaam se aankh mein nammi si hai
              aaj phir aap ki kammi si hai


              I started keeping more and more busy, weekends were spent in doing rides around Mumbai, that is when I discovered the scenic beauty of Panchgani.

              Not happy with one bike, I bought two (a Yamaha r15 and a Duke ), only to further realize that my happiness is robbed because she is not with me and even my passion is not helping me much.

              I tried to flirt with other girls to move on, but I could not. I was the guy with dried feelings. How could u expect such a guy to fall in love again?

              I decided I can’t let this happen to me; I can’t be a man of no feelings.
              Because I love U.

              My ipod was playing on one ear..

              Mujh ko iraade de
              Kasmein de, vaade de
              Meri duaaon ke ishaaron ko sahaare de
              Dil ko thikaaney de
              Naye bahaaney de
              Khwaabon ki baarishon ko
              Mausam ke paimaane de


              ..
              Apne karam ki kar atayein
              Kar de idhar bhi tu nigahein
              Sun raha hai naa tu..



              Main jo mit bhi gaya toh wajood mera

              Sada tujh mein rahe zindaaa… hummm… !
              Sun raha hai naa tu..


              I'll be sharing my heart.........Let the pics narrate the ride.......

                      Warning - Insensitive post!

                      When I first approved this tread, I thought it was in love with bike or biking. Now I see the full Masala

                      Don't want to hurt your feelings, but I am right now sitting here with Popcorn and sodas waiting for the rest!!! Why bother about Bollywood movies, when the real filmy stuff happens in real life.

                      Note: So much coffee drinking can be injurious to health!!!

                      Another Note: Our gallant moderator @antz.bin has also done love rides on valentines day from Pune to some naxalite village on the UP/Bihar border!!! Can't find that post though. Damn

                      Insensitive Post comes to an end!

                      EDIT: [MENTION=61028]whymail[/MENTION]. At no point, was my point pointed in your direction. Honest It's just relieving to see that others are worse off than me

                          Biking is not about how many Km/h you put on your Speedo. It's about how many miles you put on your Odo. Ride Safe, Ride Long!

                            Well, that particular ride was not *on* valentine's day (wouldn't that be counter productive really?). It actually started on 11th Feb (So we get to be together on VDay ).

                            Naxalite movie script has not been made public yet. Don't bother .
                            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.
