    Default Memories ;(

    The Memories, each moment gone is the moment gone for ever. The World will remember for what you have done till you last moment. In life, we all have our own passions, our own dreams, our own craziness. Here we all are a group of people who have same type all those likes. I dont know what this world think about we Bikers. But Biking for me is like my life. I know i had Not yet completed My last Log " Lets Ride It to The Eternity". Guys that was one Of most emotional ride i had done ever. So penning it down surly needs that type of Phrasal context Which i can express my mind fully to you guys. I am waiting for the right words and right moment to create that log the best i can. I want you guys to read out the best i can. I promise you guys Will bring it to you soon. Please be little more patient. Please. In the Mean while I would like to share one of my another Log which had Some other significance by the mode its executed. This time its my ride to the Holy Ramashwaram. The Mythical town From which Lord Rama and team made there Entrance to the enemy grounds of of lanka, And saved Sethi matha. In the modern Day also this Strip of our nation is very Significant During the Rule of Rajiv Gandhi(dont want to go to that story now). Being A kid Whose grown Up by seeing the Serial "Britannia Sponsored Jai Hanuman". I always Wished to See those floating bridges made be the Monkey Gods across the two nation which lead to Mythical War which is been praised by Over times. Since i bought bought my Zaki( my Love, My R15). I always wished to ride to my Childhood dream destination. And after Years, Of first dream to go there i did it. That too with the sweetness of Friendship by escaping from the Bitterness of College. Then are You guys ready to Take a ride with me?




    It was Saturday(don't remember the date). It was a normal working day for our college(i guess it was S7). Being a Saturday it was uttermost laziness from which i started my day . Went to college at 9 am. Reached class by 9:25 am and found that there were only two souls( Muthu Saravanan and Niyaz Ahamed) present in that big classroom. Since i was really bored with the geeky Proffs, the low no:s in the class accelerated my quest to bunk the class, Devil in me smiled and took quick decision to bunk the class, called out one among the remaining two Souls My dear Buddy Niyash . By 9:30 am me and Niya were on top of the high college walls(once you enter college they wont allow us to go out) to jump out of the college(Sorry muthu, for letting you study alone :P, Hope your enjoyed alot that day). Since both our bikes where parked outside we rolled out effortlessly. and went to my room(9.45 am). Niya was about to leave to his home( I was feeling Lonely). Checked my wallet, Bingo there was some 2K+ INR( the "laddu" moment, but that money was my exam fee ), enough to do some 1000Km . Many things came into my Mind how to send my day, as You Know I am Biker(by that time road map of Tamil Nadu was on my hands :P ), by the time i was planning to do another ride that too to my Childhood favorite place.


    Since Niya said Adios And went to start his Bike i asked him that EPIC question : Aliya ee Dhanushkodikku evidannu anthu Dooram kanum?( Bro, How far is Rameshawaram from here?)(i knew it was some good #500 kms) And Niya: (with wicked look) No, You are not going there na? and i replayed him with and asked him to wait. And jumped to my room( I was so excited, adrenaline were pushing out all my laziness which i had on the earlier part of the day). In no time i wore my knee guards, switched to my riding denim, Jackets on, packed my tripod, my tool kit, a bottle of water, and my map and tied it to the pillion seat of my bike(9.55am). Niya: Ninakku pranthada Patti(Dont want to Translate it :P ). By 10am we hit the NH 47 to Nagercoil(niya's home town, and he is my best guide to TN, He showed me many Wonders tamil Land, such a Nice Guy with Lot Knowledge about His homeland). We reached Vaddesery(Nagercoil Town) by 10:25am. Filled Zaki with a tank full of fuel and filled the tire(Zak was exited and forgotten to fill his belly though) .


    By 10:30am, Waved off my friend niya and i proceed to Thovallai, were the glorious AH34 will be reveled to me . With out much hesitation and the wind were low at Arulvaimozhi area(The place which is famous for the High speed Winds which was one the way to Thovallai, Mostly we cant go above 60clips on that strech) i hit triple even before reaching the AH. by 10:45 am reached AH. I stopped right after i entered that 4 Lane divided express way. Sat on the road and thought about the Following questions that arised on my mind:


    1:Should i go?
    2:Will i be back ?
    3:Whats there in Rameshwaram to see this much?
    4:Is My bike Ready to do This 1K unplanned ride?
    5:When will i be back?


    As i remembered my Rule. Thinking makes a man Weak. I Stopped thinking, and did a quick walk around of Zaki, checked engine oil(it was new), checked coolants, checked Blinkers and HL, jumped across the drench and emptied my bladder. Did i small Prayer and gave Zaki a warm hug on her belly and kissed her Naval(Petrol Lid) and asked her. Can we go ? with a smile she said OK(Self diagnosis on key insert). Since it was not preplanned ride, No one in this earth else than Niya knew where i am heading to(like always :P ). So i decided to do it in fast track way( Sorry It was not IBW trial or something) so that i can come back as soon as possible. Launched my Zaki and pointed her to north(11:05am). Since It was an Indian Open Highway and I was About to do High speeds, I Crouched down to my Zaki to get the best i can from that Lovely Japanese Lady. By 1am was at entrance of ECR road (nearly 340Km passed in no time) as i proceeded to ECR road to Chennai side Found that it was "bandh" there. Cops every were, No Shops !


    LAST HOPE TO EAT AND DRINK before till getting holy Ramashwaram also went into vain, now i Knew then only hope to get something to my belly is only after reaching those holy temples town. So with boost of thrust and Hunger i turn the throttle fully, and i was flying low on that undivided ECR, soon i found cows, goats, and people on road which made my pace to low adding to that TNSRTC divers were driving like the Killers on road. After Much hurdles i reached the Pamban Bridge by 2:45PM. Did some pic shoots with ma tripod. Went to all 4 Theerthankara's (they were like four Mahals of modern century artifacts and went to watch the One OF Holy Siva temple(Resides on of the Jyothrilianks of Holy shrines of Lord Shiva) in whole India. from there i got a coconut as prasad which was the only solid thing that i ate that day. after Visiting the temples, Proceeded to the Adams bridge area were the history lies some 10 Km to the sea from the Mainland INDIA. Moving towards the end of the trip is like moving towards an Open cathedral of white sands from distance we can see the bay bengal Ramping those costs. and from the end a stone belt that extents to the ocean. I took a bus to get there since Private vehicles were not allowed there. did quick walk around. Clicked some pics and got back to saddle as the sun was about to set. Filled Zaki's belly. and decided to do NON STOP RIDE TO NAGERCOIL AS IT WAS GETTING REALLY LATE. as i proceeded to the PAMBAN i witnessed the best SUNSET of my Whole Life( i wish to see that each day, but ). Already it was 6 pm . I took some Awesome sunset pics and launched zaki Back to our Destination.


    As the consumption Food and water was very very low. It hindered me from doing higher speeds. kept my phase at 90KMpH, eyes were tired, Making the worst i found the fact that ECR is having the Most no: Flies than any other roads in this country And heavy truck traffic made it worse. With fully Collapsed stance i reached the entrance of AH 34(it was 9.30Pm by that time). I was not even able to move single step. With much hesitation found a good vacant Bus stop. Slept there for an hour. Half of the stress was reduced and the famous Poem Came into Mind:


    Miles to Go before I sleep, I was in a same situation. nearly 300Km away i had beautiful House and good coat waiting for me, were i can sleep at best for how much time i want free and safe. With keeping that on mind i got back to saddle and slowly started to moving to the south(10:30 pm) alone on that empty highways were really fun that too on midnight , My thigh part was paining due to the continuous crouching stance on the whole journey. Body was Puling me back and Soul wanted me to get me safe at home. with combination of half Sleep half open eyes i was safely home my 1am on Sunday. Even without removing the helmet i crashed into the me to move on. Slept for the full Sunday(forgotten to eat this day also ).

    and Got Answer for my questions to

    1:Should i go? Ya, I Must have gone
    2:Will i be back ? Yes, Safe and Sound
    3:Whats there in Rameshwaram to see this much? There are many, You will see from the Pics
    4:Is My bike Ready to do This 1K unplanned ride? Yes, She was
    5:When will i be back? When ever i was, i was happy safe and sound.



    Thanks for reading. Today while siting back an remembering those Beautiful days that happened in My life. I really miss Buddies and my dear AH 34 ( my love to AH34 will be reviled in full stretch on my next log "Lets RIDE IT TO The Eternity "


    Ride Safe ride Long

    Nice log bro, well written. Loved the class bunking/jumping/conversation with friend portion. Brought out a few memories for me too.
    More pics please.

    P.P.S - you might already know this, but still a reminder. Fill tire pressure on a cold tire. After having done >5 kms, the tire becomes hot and the air inside expands. Hence, when you hit that petrol bunk to refill air, it fills in less (owing to the expansion already in tires) and hence, you run under inflated tires throughout the journey.
    But since this was an unplanned trip, all ijj well.

    A crisp log I must say. Nice clicks-the last pic!

    Getting angry at somebody is the same as getting angry with a bike that just won't go. You should stop and start thinking.
    A good mechanic will let you watch even without charging you for it. | Riding faster than everyone else only guarantees youll ride alone.

    It is funny to know that we've been imitated and copied so well
    and surprising when we notice our mistakes are copied as well.
