  • An Extended Weekend Escapade to Garo Hills, Meghalaya!

    Day - 1Ok!It may be mentioned here that so far we did not snap any pics as we had concentrated on reaching our first destination as soon as possible. Though we were tired, sleep was far away from us because of the thrilling ride. After having food, we chatted for a while before calling it a day, while a cock was strolling on the verandah crowing out loud because the sun was almost ready to spring out of the horizon.


    Coming Soon.... Day - 2 with Pics!

    Topic Approved.

    It was lovely reading your experience Devilboy & Dragon. Now, if you could please post some pictures. I have ridden to the Garo hills a few times, but didn't really ride during the night-time, like you guys!

          @Dragon: Hey buddy, glad you made it for the first day writeup.... good work. working on the water marks of the 2nd day's pics now....

          @ALL: Sorry guys, We were short of time and the road was unknown, the highway at risk with chances of ecnountering robbers or millitants groups, so we could not take many pictures on the 1st day's journey. And those few were not worth uploading. But second and third day will be uploaded soon. just hold on.

          Yep should have, but time was a constrain. Moreover, who knows the lonely cow could have charged at us or the flash.... Unfortunately the picture is only loaded in my memory, cant digitised it to share with you guys...

          That was really a scary encounter for me, especialy in a dead-dark jungle with deadly curve roads.

          Its never too late to Ride! So Ride on!
          Hit the Road! And Feel the breeze!

            Phew! So many night rides these days on xBhp... Do you guys always move around with 3kg iron chains around your waists?
            The Wheel was a great invention; Two Wheels with a Motor in between was even better!

              He he he... Nice query ken cool. At times its necessary to carry the 3 Kg chain around cos the route is infested with highwaymen & militants. Luckily, there was no need to use it. ;-)

                      lovely ...
                      I'd rather be riding my motorcycle thinking about God than sitting in church thinking about my motorcycle.
                      Ride often, ride well, have fun.
