    Default Prowl of two adventurous Spirits to SPITI

    Prologue

    Somebody said it right - Life is an adventure - Dare it!

    Every time when we plan a new ride there is some different kind of adrenaline current in every bones and joints of our body.. I mean literally when we came back from our South ride which was done in March 2017 we were happy but not content and because we were not so content we planned multiple short rides to fulfill our soul but somehow somewhere something was still missing..

    In meantime Sachin also sold his Mahindra Mojo and bought Honda CBR250r Repsol Edition because he was fed up with his Mojo brake thing and many other smaller but significant issues and also because he was too jealous of me and Abs of my bike..haha..in fact the way we tour which is so frequent we wanted a reliable and stress-free bike...

    Whatever the reason was I was happy because now we both ride Honda CBR 250r Repsol..Wuhuu!!






    After Sachin’s new bike which came in action just a month after our South ride he was so restless to burn those tyres that one day finally he spoke his heart out and our conversation went something like this -



    Sachin - (in overacting manner) Damn yar, I can’t concentrate on work..I don’t want to go to office, I don’t want to do this household work and routine stuffs I am tired...

    Kiran - Why? What’s wrong? What you want to do? Office tho jana padega <Do we have any option, you have to go to work baby>

    Sachin - Ya I know.. (In slow voice) But I want to go Riding..

    Kiran - (Surprised) Yaar abi tho south Gaye theh and then Mahabaleshwar - (recently we did south and Mahableshwar)

    Sachin - ok fine let’s make a deal next 2 months we won’t go anywhere, we will save and go for some long ride in July..how about this now?

    Kiran - Barish mein - Kahan...?? <In rains? Where?>

    Sachin – (Smiling) GUESS?

    ******

    We love mountains.. We just love mountains and that was exactly why we were not content with our south ride..

    Obviously Mountains are calling us after 2 years and we must GO

    2 years back in 2015 we completed our Ladakh ride and now it was again time for some offroads, Muds, gravels, steep roads, water crossing and some snow leopards...

    Yes you guessed it right it is none other than “The Mighty Spiti". We did Ladakh when we were so amateur, of course it was my 1st ride on my bike and errors were bound to happen, at that time we just packed up and left with not so good quality helmets, gears even the saddle bags...Our Ladakh ride was full of mistakes and only mistakes. So what even after so many barrier we completed our ride exactly according the route we planned J All thanks to Sachin if he would have denied my offer of riding my own bike to Leh I would have never gathered courage to ride anywhere else. In Short DON’T THINK MUCH. JUST GO FOR IT! EVERYTHING IS GONNA BE ALRIGHT.

    Now after 2 years when we look back to those days we feel so nostalgic and awesome, the way we have grown by every passing days, holding each other in every ups and downs of our riding career is something I appreciateJ <Self-Appreciation is important>

    Going back to those terrain from where we started when I had literally zero knowledge of riding uphill, handling bike and those single lane. Damn that feeling cannot be expressed through writing or telling or whatsoever. It just feels great, in fact more than great…This is the Adrenaline current we were looking for…

    After 2 years here we are – little more Experienced, more confident with super awesome bikes and all branded gears of course we have rode to Rajasthan, ladakh, few parts of South India, North east, Nanital-Agra and multipleeeeee short rides but every ride seems to be more special in their own means and so is this one J

    Another big news is we are not going to ride our bikes for this ride. Hold on hold on WHAT? Yes you heard it right - so which bike are we going to ride? Well for all the answers and LIVE updates and route updates you gotta stay tuned to our Instagram and facebook page and also our YouTube channel for some awesome Spiti videos all the links are mentioned below, and of course we will give full download here after we finish the ride.

    Last but not the least a big thank you to xBhp and SpartanProGears for supporting this ride yet again. There are few more names that needs to be added here which will be done shortly once we reveal few more things and kick start our ride J

    All the preparations is done and dusted and we are all set to Wroom on shiny gravels of “The Himalayas” Anxiety, Excitement, Enthusiasm, eagerness, that intensity of fire is increasing by every passing day because ladies and gentlemen the ride is about to get started

    Live like there is no tomorrow! Constantly move forward and appreciate the motivation for your existence! It has cause! It has meaning! It has reason! Never give up and never look back! Choose to make a meaningful difference in your life and the life of others. Do it every day and DO IT BIG!!!

    Fantastic.
    Addition of another CBR Repsol really will make your pics, which are already beautiful, even more beautiful.
    Looking forward to rest of the trip.

    CHAPTER 1 - “DAY 1”

    “First Day First Tragedy”

    Day1 (Sat) – 22nd July 2017

    Route - Mumbai-Delhi (By Flight)

    Tragedy and wewalk together, I mean seriously we are one such kind that Show me a hero andI'll write you a tragedy, seeing our reflection in a mirror and I can write abook of tragedy for you. But again the memories and stories are always madewith “THE TRAGEDIES”.

    To avoid steppingin tragedy we started packing our stuffs at least 3 days before our planned rideday which was on 22nd July (Saturday) and for a change we were allset with all our stuffs around 9.00 p.m. sharp on Friday we thought to book Uberthe night before, since we wanted to avoid the last minute rush and also becausewe had an early morning flight from Mumbai-Delhi, but who knew that tragedy andwe go hand in hand. Our Uber driver didn’t turn up at the last minute.

    We were forcedto do all unexpected rush at the last moment, rebooked another Uber and fortunatelywe saved our flight. In short never book a Uber in advance they are unreliable.

    While checkingin airport the securities checked every damn corner of our cabin bag especiallyour camera and gadgets bag <Well we don’t look like a criminal or DO we? After 3 hours when we stepped out of Delhi airport our Facebook Friend namedAkshay Jain came to meet us, receive us and drop us to our next destination“Yamaha Showroom in Noida”

    Yes you guessed it right we did not ride our bikes forSpiti we were supposed to get the bikes from Yamaha from where we were about tokick start our Spiti Ride.

    Travelling allows you to make so many friends from somany different places, seriously we are fortunate enough to meet such bikerbuddies who are a good human being and good people to hang around and share ourexperiences and hear theirs. Akshay Jain was one such rider buddy whom we metin Delhi, he woke up at 5.30 a.m. just to receive us from airport at 7.30 a.m.who does all this for somebody whom he had been knowing only through FaceBook J

    We reached Yamaha Show room in Noida and completed somepaper work formalities and got 2 bikes black and blue, obviously I opted forblue because that’s being my favorite color (Come on I am a Girl colour mattersfor me :P). We were impatient and equally excited to swing our legs over thesaddle bag and hear those lovely music of engine and feel some fresh breeze. Nomatter how tired we were travelling and gusting whole morning but riding bikegives you some thrilling flow in every organs of your body.

    Yes you guessed it right FZ25 it isJ... if you ask me to explain this bike in 2 words it will be “Absolutely gorgeous” andadded flavor to this was the bike was extremely light weighted at least when wecompare it with CBR250R which we own.

    We collected our bike and proceeded towards xBhpheadquarters from where on we were supposed to start our ride and reach Shimla.Which eventually didn’t happen.

    It took us 1 and a half hour to search xBhp HQ but nodoubt we met some funny people and kids on the way while searching the correct route.

    Like the one I recollect the funniest situation of theday - we were literally exhausted while searching the exact way to xBhp soSachin asked me to stop in a corner of road while he would call somebody fromxBhp and get the correct route we were standing at the gate of “Moksh Dham”<Graveyard> when 2 kids came running towards us screaming “Ye bhoot logkaun ha” <what kind of ghost are they?> since we were on with our ridinggears might be that would be the thing that made them thinking . One kid outof few even started weeping since he thought that we are the real ghosts...damnwe scared the hell out of the kids. We quickly rushed off the spot because we werein no mood to get crushed by the localities out there.

    Somehow finding the way we reached xBhp and met somesuper creative people out there with loads of bike related chat which followedwith lunch, photos etc etc It was already 2.00 p.m. and starting our ride solate would have done no good to us we anyways wouldn’t have reached Shimla.

    So we decided to stay in Delhi and start our ride thenext day i.e. on Sunday early morning. We were also supposed to join xBhp forthe morning ride for approximately 30-40 kms around Delhi-Ghaziabad highway andthen back to our plan...

    After spending a rainy evening in Delhi with hotcappuccino coffee we called it a day...

    Stay tuned!! Day2 is going to be big because we are about to Wroom start our dream ride to “THESPITI VALLEY”

    Selfie toh banti ha, while boarding starts!




    Breakfast in Spice Mall, Noida



    Some more selfies!



    Thoda aur khate ha :P




    Aakshay on the left and Naddy on the right who is also from Noida!



    This is the biggest step Sachin took in his life and handed over keys to me and I am glad he did, I will always be thankful to him!

    We are gonna ride well and ride safe, and watch each other's back!


    Follow my Lead (Aaj kal Biwiyon ka jamana ha )


    Though I like R3's Blue more, I was still happy with this Blue FZ2.
