  • A vey short trip to athirapally

    Ok guys,
    after a long wait,couple of months back i bought my FZ and have been riding alone in fact only riding to class
    anyway tnx to xBhp i met up with an old class mate threat2myself1,who has been riding along with bioblade for some time.
    we decided to ride to Athirapally frm Cochin.my very first trip btw!
    a small description of the place

    "Athirappally Waterfalls is located 78 kms from Kochi (Cochin), located at the entrance to Sholayar ranges, this waterfall is a popular picnic spot. Affording to the onlookers, one of the most bewitching sights, Athirappally Falls is about 80 feet high and located in the forest area. Combined with the greenery, it infuses freshness into any tired soul. The Athirapally Falls join the Chalakkudy River after plummeting a drop of 80 feet."

    a very short trip,had fun with some amateur cornering even though bioblade ended up crashing out in a corner...he was safe but his R15 took damages worth 6k!

    nothing much more to tell but im posting some of the pics!

    Short Trip Approved
    The Wheel was a great invention; Two Wheels with a Motor in between was even better!

                    That ferry service wasn't running when Mithun (mithun.08) and myself went in Dec 08. He was on his R15 and me on the R1. We ended up taking an inner route from that bridge which opened up on the highway near Angamaly.

                      we took that route on our way back!...though the road wasn't as good as the normal route,it was fun.

                            tnx again guys..
                            well both of them have been riding together for some time now...its just my first ride

                            yep thinking abt kriss;s incident all i can do is be happy that only this much only happened to Udhay!

                            and yeah these are the only pics we had to ride back before reaching the falls due to Udhays fall! basically instead of waterfalls i got to see Udhayfalls
