  • [Photo Feature]: Bikers Of Assam Maha Roadtrip 2013

    Life turns boring to do the same work repeatedly like a machine. Our biker group was formed to add some adventure in our life. We meet up once in a month and go to some unexplored destination. Most of our ride were one or two days ride. Since most of our members were either student or newly appointed employee therefore we dint get long leaves.

    Whenever we meet up in our rides or in social networking sites we use to discuss about a grand tour.

    A grand tour requires lots of planning physically, mentally and economically. We were planning for the Roadtrip since our first roadtrip to Lake of No Return, Myanmar.

    The date was almost fixed since Durga Puja holidays was most suitable time for most of us but the destination was not fixed. We discussed about the destination in every roadtrip and G2G. Everyone came with different ideas finally we decided to merge the different destination in a single roadtrip and named it as " Bikers Of Assam Maha Roadtrip 2013 "

    The complete circuit of the roadtrip comprises of all the important historical monuments of Assam & Arunachal Pradesh.

    On 11th Oct 2013 it was Saptami of Durga Puja. After offering my prayers to Goddess Durga at our nearest puja mandar. I started the tour from Duliajan on 9AM. Two of my friends Abhijit & Bijoy came to pick me up from Digboi. Bijoy had decided to ride single in his Pulsar180 and complete the whole trip while Abhijit will return from Sivasagar. He is not participating in the whole event as he had some official work and even he didnt get his leave. He came to cheer us.

    We visited the Ranghar Pavilion, Sivasagar, Assam

    The Rang Ghar is a two-storied building which once served as the royal sports- pavilion where Ahom kings and nobles were spectators at buffalo fights and other games at Rupahi Pathar particularly during the Rangali Bihu festival in the Ahom Capital of Rangpur.

    Then we visited the Talatal Ghar. The Talatal ghar is the largest monument of Ahom Architecture. The place which was built as a military base during Ahom Rule. It had two secret tunnels and three flours building below the ground which was used as exit routes during Ahom Wars.

    We reached Dergaon, it was getting darker and we stopped for a Tea Break in a stall which is owned to some relatives of Bijoy. Though they asked us to halt for a night we decided to keep riding. We crossed Kohora and Bagori Range of Kaziranga National Park and reached Burapahar as it was already 8.30PM we decided to halt in a resort called Wild Reach Eco Resort, Kaziranga

    We had our dinner and our bikers went to their respective rooms. It was about 12 O'clock midnight. We recieved a call from Jayanta who was coming with Om Prakash and crossed Kohora Range. The started there journey lately from Tinsukia as they had some official work.

    I and Arnab decided to wait by the side of the gate to receive Jayanta. We were sitting in a hill by the side of the highway. It was dark as the lights went off.

    Suddenly Arnab shouted: Aaah kiba kamurile

    me: hap sap hoi niki

    arnab: nohoi, mejali porua niki

    We heard some sound and someone was checking with a search light. I asked : Kun hoi

    He replied: Sir moi Pyarelal, night guard.

    Me: Night guard, rati kiba ulai niki

    Guard: Nai dada kali nai ulua

    Me: Kali nai ulua mane

    Guard: Purohi he ulaisil hati

    Me: Purhohi ??

    Guard: Ei tinta rasta di hati Jungle par kore ( he showed three elephant corridor from where elephant crosses the Jungle )

    Arnab: Light to de sun, rasta tu sai lou. Hati ulale polabo lagibo

    Thankfully nothing happened. Jayanta and Prakash reached the Resort by 12.30AM. The already had their dinner on their way.

    The first day of our trip was over. We all we very tired and slept as soon as we went to our bed.

          Madhurjya, why did not you inform me of this before? I could have joined too. I have heard about you guys riding, guys in our college talked about a guy with R15 and CBR riding to Myanmar but I did not know it was you. I have been to Nilakantha Dhaba before, should have picked Nandanban, way better resort. Does the CBR rider wear a Honda jacket too? I think I have seen him many times.
          I am back!

            We posted about the event in our social networking pages, blogs & various forum before three months. I belive most of the bikers in Assam knows about the event. Even I posted about the event here by creating a thread but never understood why the moderators didnt approved it. The rice thali of Nilakantha is very delicious compared to Nandanban.If you are talking about the Black CBR250 Biker wearing a Honda Jacket he is my friend but not our member who travelled Myanmar. Our one is wears Leather and rides a CBR150R.

              To be frank, I have never been to Nandanban. But I regularly go to Jhangi on my bicycle, (and fell from Makong bridge once too ) yeah, I'm talking about that black CBR250 rider, I saw him about 6 kilometers away from the Sivsagar Bypass around 7 in the A.M. on 27th of October. I did not wave or anything since I was on a bicycle but took notice of him.

              Nice travelogue BTW, eagerly waiting for the rest. It seems like you skipped Jorhat district completely, any reason for that? You went straight to Jorhat bypass from Jhangi.
              I am back!

                  I guess you couldn't make uptill Tezpur and lodged in Kaziranga?
                  On my trips to Upper Assam, I leave Dibrugarh by 1pm and reach Guwahati by 9pm, with a good lunch halt at Jorhat, for around 2 hours!
                  That includes depart from AMC, all way through Dibrugarh, enter Jorhat city till Baruah Chariali and reach back home at Zoo Road!
                  Tezpur was way too short for the time!

                    I guess you are Vivek Sarmah. Dude you ride 250cc+ bike solo while most of our bikes are below 220cc with a pillion. Everything changes when you ride in group. Moreover we stop in here and there for photoshoot.

                        You reach Guwahati in 8hrs from Dibrugarh including 2hrs break. But that doesnt mean whole group could maintain that pace. We were cruising in our own comfortable speed. We were never in a hurry to reach anywhere.

                          I don't recommend that speed on NH37, especially on some parts which are very narrow, part of NH37 that goes through Jorhat is very narrow when we consider the amount of traffic the highway gets. There were a group of riders who started flashing their hazard lights in Baruah Chariali today and zoomed past completely ignoring the traffic signals. Sadly one had a xBhp sticker on the fender, also saw a Guwahati registered 200 Duke parked at New Balibat (Near hotel Rani) today with a xBhp sticker on it. Whoever that is, I wrote my number on a paper and stuffed it under the rag, waiting for the call now. Touring is not about speed, it's about enjoying the ride and going with the attitude of someone on a holiday.

                            Just on the other note, what I said wasnt about speed.
                            All I said was the distance between Golaghat and Tezpur isnt much and can be covered in a pretty less time.

                            Well, if you guys think I flew low, here's the stats.

                              We could have reached Tezpur it was not far away but we decided to halt as we found suitable hotel in resonable rate.

                              Truly agreed, touring and racing is not the same thing. Brothers please always obey traffic rules and dont spoil the name of xbhp. Ride Safe
