    @neevarp16 You can edit this post anytime you want.
    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.

    Default Twisties on the plains!

    Date: 27.08.2012
    Ride: 'Jade' CBR150R
    Destination: Not really fixed.
    Camera: Nokia 500
    Heavily post processed using Lightroom and PS CS3
    Route Map

    I got up in the morning and all the previous night I felt restless and sleepless. Am not okay., I know it and I know what to do for it. Finished the morning rituals., went out and looked at her. She smiled at me giving a nod! I know, she too wanted the same. Its around 8 AM in the morning I started out from my home. I reached the main road and let my heart decide the direction of heading. Now, the road chosen, cruising at around 60kmph... I was thinking of a destination at a reasonable distance. Okay., lets reach the foothills of Kodaikanal Ghat section and head back. So, now... destination set., Jade and me is set to roll out for the first ever single ride of her beyond 1k kms.

    I know the route as I have traveled in it like a 100 times en-route to my mother's native., but ever in bus. I know the road at this part is smooth, 2-lane, well laid and known for the highly-banked twisties. I enjoyed riding. Rode serenely at around 60-70kmph., re-thinking, implementing, and correcting all those theoretically learned knowledge of cornering and riding. Am happy and excited and so was she.

    Went past a couple of local places., and started the roads bordered by farm lands that had just received the first monsoon rains. Stopped by a random spot and noticed I had already traveled 70kms., I should say I never felt like that long.



    Jade resting under shade.


    Those farmlands getting ready for cultivation




    After sitting there and looking on those passing by vehicles., (actually it was the other way around, everyone stared at me and her!) for about 15 mins, we resumed... The time was around 10 AM and I reached Batlagundu. Had breakfast and meanwhile my dad called me. After knowing my whereabouts., he happily imposed a job of inquiring about my brother's birth certificate for a name change. (Yeah., my mom's place is near there on the old route to Kodai and both me and my bro were born there.)

    So, after every job's over., when I decided to start off to the ghats., nature decided the other way around. I sensed the rain approaching and within seconds theres this heavy downpour, and when all of it was over, it is already 2 PM. I had promised my mom, I would be back my maximum 5 PM and so sadly., that was all far we could get to that day.

    Return leg started. After a chilling monsoon rain and two-lane traffic-less road, fresh air and a cool mate.. Only a rider would understand this.

    Somewhere returning




    Then stopped at a place. It was beautiful. I decided to start off after the rest of 10 mins.. no wait.. 15 mins.. some more time.. i was sitting there doing absolutely nothing for 30 mins except clicking with my Nokia.









    So, somehow made up the mind and started from there and serene again. Reached back home at around 5 PM as promised to my mom.

    BTW, browsing through the forum., I came to know about HDR, I googled and learned what is it. When sitting at the side of the road, thought of why shouln't I try it with my Nokia., and the bracketed photos are still under processing., I'll post them soon!!
