    *******************

    Prologue – “Explorers of the Wild”

    “Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”

    Life is an Adventurous journey!!

    And so we stroked out one more dream from our dreamlist - It was Month of May when we first initialized our planning for our big ride. In order to execute this the most important thing was LEAVES as we are in IT world and of course a responsible employee.

    “WE” – Let me introduce ourselves, Many of you know US but this is for those who don’t;

    -------------------------------
    Myself – Kiran and I was riding Honda CBR 250 Repsol edition, I call him “J.A.R.V.I.S”

    Sachin – My better half was riding Mahindra Mojo, He call him “Airavat”

    --------------------------------


    Initially, when we started planning the very 1st name which we shortlisted was “BHUTAN” in fact not just shortlisted but finalized. We started with the route planning, requirement gathering and analysing (SDLC you know, you will know it if you are aware of IT world ) etc etc…

    Since I wanted to upgrade my motorcycle to some sports bike because, I was riding Bajaj Avenger 220 for quite a sometime and also because I faced few problems during our Ladakh ride so the 1st thing which we thought was finalizing which bike would suit me and my requirement and I dreadfully needed one so that “me and my bike” can get enough time to spend along before our big ride.

    Finally after trying and testing various 2 wheels we finally settled with a suitable bike for me Honda CBR 250 it is !!

    We were finding a pre-owned motorcycle which took 2 months of our time and dedication and then finally one day Sachin found him “August 15, 2016” was the day when we went to see him, Morning we saw him, afternoon we finalized a deal, Evening we bought him home – Something’s in your life is bound to happen and is so quick that you don’t even realize of what have just happened.

    And here is how we started a full-fledged planning for our another grand adventure

    We approached few companies for sponsorship 2 months ago our ride because like every time we did not wanted to rush on the last moments and miss any such opportunities like we did during our ladakh and Nanital ride so we shared our plans with them and paused…….(for positive revert)

    Sachin had most of the things so his shopping list was very short and sweet but I wanted to upgrade my mesh riding jacket to textile one, get the riding pant for the 1st time so I was behaving too choosy in that context, new full gloves etc etc etc…

    Till the time we could have started with the shopping thing, Diwali was all set to hit the planet earth which further delayed our work.

    Now tell me how much preparations can an individual do when he is provided with just 2 days a week Saturday & Sundays especially when the work is related with government offices and Moreover when you are a travel freak kinda a person (Yes we even had a “Hampi” plan to execute before the big ride so few days were invested there)

    Now one of the most important thing if you are travelling to some place like Bhutan where the documentation thing is very strict is transferring your bike from the previous owner name to yours and having a clean documentation and HERE IS HOW THE BIGGEST CHANGE IN PLAN HAPPENEND..

    Basically my bike needed a name transfer thing, but we are a hopeful people somehow we thought that- in fact it was also said that we would be sponsored and will be provided by a different bike to ride for this adventure so we took things lightly related to our bikes and here is how we made a REAL BIG MISTAKE.

    Fortunately unfortunately things did not turned out in our favour and we were just 2 weeks away from our ride with NO PREPRATIONS AT ALL.

    We had to drop Bhutan plan because they are very strict with documents and so WE CHANGED OUR PLAN TO NORTH-EAST

    In 4 days Sachin planned the new route, booked flight for return leg, Painted Tshirts, Completed editing a video for our YouTube channel, settled with the brand to shop for my riding pant – DONE AND DUSTED !!

    The following week we went shopping and quickly purchased riding pant and gloves for me, unluckily we went to 3 shops and I did not get suitable textile jacket besides we did not had much time as well for searching it - so I managed with my old Cramster Mesh jacket with thermal liners..

    The fun part is, it was just 5 days ago when Sachin ordered for Bluetooth device (the most important thing we needed for this ride). Thanks to Sena people they delivered it in just 1 day before our ride.

    We thought that at least for this ride we would sail smooth with all preparation 2-3 weeks ago our ride but…..(Blame Us for being so hopeful people )

    Demonetization is a different story all together, standing in ATM queue for 2 hours every day for 1 week was insanely backbreaking.

    Finally it was 18th November The Friday our last day to office before our long vacation so winding up every bits, I left office around 4 pm to clear up the last minutes work, We always like making stickers for our ride and even this time we planned to do it, but we did not planned it to do at the last moments.

    All the shops where I was supposed to get the stickers done was unfortunately closed, I even wanted name and blood-group sticker on bike but…

    Another huge task was installing Bluetooth on our helmets which took another couple of hours and then finally around 3.00 am we were all set to catch up some sleep. Yes we got only 2 hours of sleep that night but again even that 2 hours of sleep in the night feels refreshing...

    5.30 A.M it was and yes the most awaited ride was about to get started…600 kms to go, 1st stop Indore…Lets do this!!



    Wroommmm Wroooommmmm !!
