  • [Photo Feature]: Brute's First Outing to Raireshwar

    The Brute (Bajaj Pulsar AS200) was new and I was eager to take it on its first long ride. I was bit confused about where to take it for its first ride. While going through an article on xBhp, I saw some pictures of Raireshwar and from there I got the idea of going to Raireshwar. I had to make a solo trip as my friends backed off at the last moment .

    Bike: Bajaj Pulsar AS200
    Distance Covered: 290 km (Pune - Raireshwar - Pune).

    Attaching teaser for now and will upload more once this gets approved.

            Brute's First Outing to Raireshwar

            It was 15th August 2015. Eager for my ride, I left the bed at 6 AM in the morning. I called two of my friends to ask when are we starting. But unfortunately they turned down the plan and preferred to stick to their beds. Then I thought that taming the Brute solo, is not a bad option either. All set for Raireshwar, I started at 7 AM. The weather was bit cold as it was drizzling.

            I was eager to pull the throttle and wanted to the Brute to simply roar through the roads. So I chose to take the Mumbai-Bangalore highway. After crossing Khambatki ghat, I took a right turn and proceeded towards Wai.

            Just before Wai, these were the Banyan trees and its aerial roots. These roots were cut down in proper shape so as to make way for heavy vehicles as well.

            Then after reaching Wai, I went off the Mahabaleshwar road and started driving towards Raireshwar. Soon I was able to see the ghat and the view only made me highly excited. The entire mountain range was covered by clouds.

                            Nice pictures. If I remember correctly, this is the road which connects from Wait to Bhor. I had done this beautiful stretch about a year back when it was freshly paved and butter smooth to ride, then followed up with another ride a month later when parts of the road began to deteriorate. How was the road condition when you rode?

                              So you took the route which climbs up from Wai side. How's the road condition? And any idea about the route which climbs down to Bhor side? I believe it is still offroad and not tarred.
