    Hope you guys had loads of fun. Please upload more pics.

    On R15, You'll surely enjoy those curves. But I'd suggest a rainy season for visit.
    While we were returning, there was quite a bit of drizzle and we really enjoyed ourselves a lot.

    Lot of people ask me why I love Roaming around on my bike this much? What’s the fun in riding yourself to exhaustion… they ask. And more often than not I am not able to reply properly. And trust me, It’s the last question you want your mom or GF to hurl at you after you are home guzzling a gazillion miles of tarmac on stretch.

    Why do biker’s ride…? Why do we like to pick our bikes and roam around without a destination in mind…? Well the reason is simple. We like it and we Like it like hell. I mean If you ask us to choose between a hand or a bike, We’d without a shadow of doubt choose the Bike.

    Just last week, with a group of unknowns I went on a drive of 650 km’s. For most of the people, it’ll be pointless. You didn’t even go out with your friends. What’s the fun in that they will ask. Don’t you have friends to go out with…? Can’t you stay at home and rest over the weekend and maybe catch the latest movie running in the theatre’s…? And the answer to your question will undeniably be an emphatic NO!!!

    All the 6 unknowns I went to drive with work in the IT industry catering to a client’s oddest of whims at moment’s notice day in and day out, maintaining impossible hour’s all through the week. These weekend drives give us the freedom to express ourselves. Makes us believe that It’s US who r in control of our lives and not some prude sitting thousands of miles away. Coz when we drive the only thing in our minds is “How to overtake the guy in front…?” and “How to give way to the one trying to overtake me…?”. There are no deadlines to meet, excels to fill, clients to work for or offices to attend to.

    It’s Just me and my bike and a couple of friends !!!
    Destination doesn’t matter!!! Distance is secondary!!!
    What matters is riding, not because it’s required but just because we love it.

    This was the kind of mood we took onto the trip.

    This part is taken from my facebook writeup of the trip. It's probably the most emotional thing I've ever written in my life.
    I was terribly angry as I havent informed my family or gf:P that i am going on a long trip, but a friend of mine by mistake, tagged me on fb and as a result, everybody knew where I was.
    Got a royal scolding from my folks and All the anger and angst just poured into the keyboard.

    Yes, the sunset one. Which DSLR was it?
    No matter how good the camera is, it's always the skills of the photographer that matters.

    currently I am using canon 600d with 18-55, 55mm f1.4 prime and a 55-250(Just keeping all the bases covered.).
    that one was tripod mounted with 6 secs of exposure with nd4.0 filter as the sunlight was already fading.
