    This set of pictures are from a ride we did back in December 2013. This was intended to be a 2 night ride to a place near Panchgini (tents) and then Dapoli on the western coast, but eventually turned out to be 3 nights, the 3rd of which was spent at Mahableshwar. This ride was plagued with breakdowns, punctures, upset tummy, frayed tempers by some, but most of all, we came away richer for some super memories. Ishaan an avid RE biker from Delhi was visiting Pune and joined us on this ride. We encountered some horrendous traffic jam in the evening at Mahableshwar - this was a long weekend, so this is just a heads up to all those who might be headed here in similar situations.

    This set of pictures was from a ride Kurush and I did in May this year to Goa. The ride was fantastic with Amboli ghat in good shape for a change. I was able to open up the throttle of the Ninja on the fantastic short stretch of road between Kolhapur and Nipani. We stayed in South Goa, which adds about one-and-a-half hours to the ride time. The only downside to riding was the weather which began turning hot post 11am and then humid in the pm when we were in Goa. My wife & daughter alongwith Kurush's fiance and sister accompanied us by car to Goa, so we were able to ride sans luggage.

    This set of pictures is from our Independence Day Ride a few days ago. This time I joined the "Sore Arse Riders" MC. The group was doing a three day ride to Hampi (700 km) and constitutes of riders from Mumbai and Pune. The plan was to accompany my friend Sunit who is a member of the MC to meet with the others at the MacDonalds just after the Katraj tunnel and then accompany them till Wai before we turned back. We reached the meetup point at 7am to catch up with everyone. For me it was meeting a great bunch of souls after a five year hiatus. The MC has expanded over the years from the number of riders, the bikes and waistlines (all a sign for a happy bunch of folks). The bikes were a fabulous treat to ride with like the Hayabusa, BMW 1200R, 2 Honda Valadero's (there are only three such bikes in India, of which two belong to this group), 2 Ninja 650, Vstorm, Comet250 and a CB400-4 (sweet sound). A funny incident occurred whilst riding to Wai when I hailed down a rider from the Jawa club (who were incidentally also heading to Hampi albeit an overnight halt at Belgaum). We were crawling up the ghat before Wai amidst pouring rain and traffic when I hailed down one of the Jawa riders who panicked for some reason and began to go off road into the slush to bring his ride to a shuddering halt, when I asked him if Ashok Naidu (xbhp biker of the year) was also riding amongst them, to which he replied in the negative. Needless to say, I got out of this embarassing situation as quick as I could - apologies mate (whoever you are)! I patriotically returned home at 10.30am drenched (despite wearing a jacket liner) and caked with dirt. A memorable ride this one!

    Iam glad you like reading about our rides. To the best of my knowledge and I think you are correct in mentioning, there is no blue colour Ninja 650 on offer. I must ask Mahesh about this. Mahesh also rides a kick-ass Yamaha R1.

    More to come!

    This set of pictures are from two separate rides.

    The first one was a ride to Lavasa where we experienced the first rains. As we reached the entrance to Lavasa city, the rain began in earnest, so we took shelter at a small roadside restaurant. Many other riders who were also out for the day had similar ideas so we all ended up here eating breakfast and sipping tea. After much introduction and bon homie for one hour we began the return leg. It was nice to catch up with Anirudh who is also a Triumph Bonneville rider with whom I had met briefly on the highway, whilst riding to Goa in May. The weather was dry once we descended from the hills, so we decided to test ride the Triumph Daytona 675R.

    The second ride was to Panchgini for a breakfast run to Rustoms Strawberry Inn which lies between Panchgini and MAPRO. The day was beautiful being overcast but not raining which made for ideal riding conditions. The twisties going up into the hills were devoid of traffic with temperatures dipping rapidly past each turn we took. We reached the restaurant fairly early and devoured "Akuri" (Parsi delicacy made of eggs), cutlets, Tea & strawberry milkshake. We also had some eggs & cutlets parcelled to take back home which were put into the bonneville saddlebags. Breakfast finished we made a quick dash to MAPRO to pick up strawberry's as well. Here, my bike tipped over as it was badly parked (too straight) on the uneven road. Thankfully, the frame sliders kicked in to do their job magnificently, so damage was limited to only the bent frame slider. We reached home and were in for another jolt - the eggs, cutlets & strawberry's were a liquid mess squelching around in the saddlebags. Ugh! Lesson learnt, no more parcel service - those who want exotic breakfasts can jolly well make the ride!
