    Icon10 Chapter 4 - CHUL after 4 years - 3500 KMs - 5 States - SOLO

    Previous Chapters:

    This is me and this is my CHUL

    Chapter 1 - Kasauli - Pehli CHUL

    Chapter 2 - Garhmukteshwar - Chul out of Frustration

    Chapter 3 - Aare Wah TAJ boliye - Shah Jahan Ki CHUL

    4 Long years and I only reached chapter 4 ....I was not going to write this one up as its way too personal but heck I will give you the abridged version...Lifes been playing hell of a tricks on me...4 years changed a lot and the only reason I came back here was due to the fact that one of my friends asked me to write the travelogue to some other site and I was like...dude!!!...Im a XBHPan and if I ever write it will be ONLY on XBHP..

    So GADDHE...YEH LE..pad le...Why writing it now...well I just had a crash and I have some free time on my hand





    So before we start ... lets get some basics right...

    Why?
    -Impulse bhai...it was impulse..

    How many days?
    8

    Damage??
    never counted those things...

    I will be covering every day as a post..and try to get this done with in a week.

    Foreword (this is not the original one..but works for this...)

    Jaipur was total fun...I was trying to find my friends place which took me inside the pink city and **** its NOT THAT PINK....and HAWA MEHAL, its way too over-rated as I rode past it in the night without noticing it and when I saw it in the morning I was like...I rode through here...I never saw this here....but that was not the highlight of the day....I was planning to reach INDORE by sunset but I was 300 KMs away at sundown...with my 3G down...all I had was chussi singh who massaged me stay on NH12 till indore that really helps!!

    So 6:00 PM sun was setting down, I was no-where and the so called NH12 is so narrow that our noida sector 18 road is wider than that after parking vehicles on both the sides...6:30 PM I was like I should stop the day now this doesn\\\'t seem good..I was not getting a good vibe...my extensive research prior to trip was reading all the triplogs and everyone advised not to RIDE night in MP but you can do nighters on GQ...and I left GQ when I turned towards Kota instead of Ajmer...the reason for that was \\\"I had promised my cousin that I will be meeting him on 2014 and with just 3 days left, I have to reach his place 800KMs away....\\\" now what\\\'s the use of this when Im dead...I actually inserted 1K note in my shoe just in case, something happens I should have some money....Just when I was about to Give up...LiLLY went into reserve and it was PITCH DARK...found a gas station in next 10 mins as I instructed the guy to fill her up...this guy comes in and starts checking the bike out and shouts gaadi toh desi hai, banda bhi desi hai kya?? All he could see was my eyes...all I said was Banda bhi desi hi hai!! .... and dont know why I just asked, hey you got a minute..I would really like to talk to someone...its been like 14 hrs and I really need someone to talk to...care for a smoke??? He instructed me to fill her up and come near the exit...This guy had that positivism all over his body language and he knew his bikes...rider to rider..as soon as my gloves were off..we shook hands...

    KAPIL ..
    Rijil....
    MALAYALEE ????...
    HOLY ****...dont tell me...you a MALLU too ??
    Sugham aano ?? (you good??)
    ****, you know malayalam too!!
    Well Im a local but I studied in palaghat
    That explains it
    Mein bhi sochu ki North Indians mein itna jigra kaha se aagaya to ride in this cold..I havent touched my bike since last two months coz of the cold...and here you are riding full on...so where to??
    Plan was for goa but I guess I will do Jalgaon, then mumbai and back to Delhi via GQ
    Nice
    So hows the road till Ujjain?
    Dekho bus GHABRANA matt, coz of the cold the roads may seem deserted...but if you catch a BUS..uske saath chal lena...but no worries..its all good..STAY STRONG

    This one line was enough for me...I checked my watch - 7 PM...so ujjain was like 150 KMs so max 3.5 hrs ...bid him bye and started the ride...One of the best and scary rides of all time...there were instances when I was all alone na insaan...na insaan ki jaat...SKY was so awesome with so many stars and all I could hear was THE THUMP...but the roads were really curvy and there were instances when while trying to maneuvering curves, I miss judged the curve and was thrown out of curve...learned the skill of cutting curves while doing 100 but still was dangerous!!! All I could think was Dude, you not carrying any first aid thing with you...slow down...

    I was still scared and with trucks coming on to you on full beam was blinding the vision. Suddenly you see the curves going up and in 20 mins you are up on the hills with stars all around you...all I could think of, scripts of all the horror movies seen till now...VEERANA tops the list...never had the guts to pull my cam up to click some pics....So Madhya Pradesh has these WIND MILLs to farm wind energy..I seen those while travelling to kerala via train...So I started seeing these huge creatures with hands waving at each other...I was like WHAT THE ****...last jo chai pee thi..saale ne aafeem mila dee hogi shayad...badi meethi thi...Im having visions....such a bad time to have a TRIP like this...and those monsters were coming closer...I was like..shall I increase the speed or slow down....there were a LOT of MONSTERS ...I mean A LOT...with single green eyes on TOP...turns out I was riding through one of the will mill farm....

    Someone asked me if I was scared as I was alone??

    well, I was scared coz of many reasons:

    1) LiLLY - I never rode her this hard...with bare minimum essential things intact and no extra addons which are required to pull a ride like this...This impulse ride to complete my own 2014 resolution could cost me many things...

    2) Story - I have some insane and crazy stories..I have done stuff on impulse which Im not proud of, I have stories which are not known to anyone...this ride to my cousin is to get another such story...I dont wanna end up as a story now. I wanna share this over a beer like this one time I was riding and **** I wanted to pee so bad but was scared to stop and pee..

    3) Lack of Equipments - Im just carrying a spare tube, clutch cable and a throttle cable...battery was suppose to be changed but I charged it up. Im not even geared up correctly for this and I forgot few of things at home....This could seriously cost me...

    4) Budget - Im on a shoe string budget but woh kehte hai na CHUL BADI BALWAAN

    5) THE CHUL THEORY - This ride is kindda like an research for my product and I dont wanna waste this shot..



    With that have fun....more on these once this gets approved..

    Day 1

    Day 1 - 28th Dec


    So its the DAY...I had to start the biggest chul till date..I was literally shitting in my pants..So the plan was to start early and reach udaypur by day end...but luck was not on my side. Waise bhi nahi hoti...I had a morning shoot which was suppose to complete by 1 PM and I was required at any cost...So Plans changed, now I will be starting the ride by 2:00 PM...Only consolation I got, First person I saw was my crush :-P that should do it right...??


    Now every chul till now started with a LIE to my dad....that\'s kindda deal which I can\'t break..earlier I used to give some lame excuse about work but when you are a startup entrepreneur and working from home its kindda tough to cook something up..but even then I managed to cover it up with the biggest lie ever...


    2 PM damm lets start the ride..lemme try to grab one last peek at her but she was no where to be found..anyways CHUL is more important at that point of time..and before that I HAVE TO DO MY RITUAL..Where I just light a cigarette and talk to LiLLY (that\'s the name of my MOTORCYCLE) till the fag burns out...This is really important for the ride..as the RIDE has to get you...she has to understand what lies ahead...She has to understand the gravity of the situation...we will be two bodies and one soul..this helps me to set my mind and kindda prepare me.. for things, which I had no clue about. During this ritual I saw something from the left front shocker...is that a oil leak??? How can that be??? I just got her serviced her 3 days ago and I did fixed the right front shocker...hope its a false alarm...and my cigarette was done...time to roll. No words spoken, my team was waiting for me at a distance. They saw me saddling her up they started their respective engines. I got a wingman till GGN and after that I was all alone.


    30 minutes into the ride I asked my wingman to slow down and come near to me...my first words \"I need to go to a service center...\" 15 more minutes I was at royal enfield service centre in sector 15 GGN... as soon as I stopped. All I could say to the supervisor,

    \"I\'m on my TRIP and I guess my left shocker is leaking..can you fix that up ASAP\",
    \"sir where you heading too?\"
    \"Goa\"
    \"Where are the rest of the riders?\"
    \"I\'m doing solo\"
    \"sir 30 minutes and you will be back on road\"


    The fastest shocker oil change I ever seen. some where around 4:30 I was finally on the road again...First coffee break around 5:30 I remember this as I got a text \"You never stayed back for lunch\" the only text which can bring smile to my face...\"I wanted to catch up with you before you left\"
    \"Sorry, I was getting late, I tried to look for you but in vain\"
    \"Hope you have your camera, pass me some interesting clicks, enjoy your ride and be safe\" now how can I not obey the rule..
    Jaipur was like 200 KMs away...time to ride away to glory





    8PM ish..I was so loving the roads..overtaking trucks at 110 was such a bliss...but I guess I had to learn something real fast...That with speed you have to be responsible...I was so engrossed in over-taking trucks and cars that I was changing lanes like a bunny on energizer and Suddenly the extreme left side lane just vanished...It had a small bump at the end of asphalt and after that gravel..guess they were repairing the road..at 110 you will get some airtime..and that\'s what I got..2 seconds of airtime of like 1 feet and then gravel...All I could do was LEAN BACK so that my rear wheel touches the ground first...release the throttle and pull the clutch all the way...balanced the bike on gravel for 4 seconds and came back on road...I thanked my guardian angel and slowed down a bit...no point rushing the ride...Now I had to reach jaipur and take a halt...I thought of taking a room at roadside hotels..then I remembered to call my friend who was at jaipur-




    \"hello\"
    \"Haa bhai\"
    \"Chai pilayega?\"
    \"bhai mein jaipur hoo\"
    \"Pata hai, mein bhi Jaipur hoo\"
    \"Holy shit, is the ride on?\"
    \"Yep\"
    \"Ghar aajao, you crashing here...kal subah jaana\"
    \"OK, address SMS kar\"


    after one hr I reached his place and had some super food...
