    Default Riding with the moon..400kms of Night Ride to Nagar.

    Some one said very true about R15. "Once u get hold of this machine, every weekend will be meant for long rides..and not for girl friend/s.." It's that addictive and i am addicted.

    As the week goes down and weekend approaches, plans roll down on floor. And this time i need not plan anything specially.
    Ahmednagar, my friend's native place. We were about to plan something for this weekend and then this wedding invitation dropped in. It's his brother's wedding this Sunday and he is supposed to be there.

    He just now called me and told me bout the plan. And here we go. A beautiful weekend ride is planned.

    We are heading to Ahmednagar tonight. It'll be a full night journey. Around 400 kms from Mumbai. Really excited. I have been many times on that road but not at night and never this late.

    We'll be leaving Mumbai by 2200 hrs. This may sound risky and insane but it is quite safe. Roads are tow way with a divider all the way till Ahmednagar. Even then some special care has to be taken as these days anything can happen. Maharashtra is like hot cake these days.

    One more special thing bout this ride is, we could have opted to take both our R15s but we are taking only one. Thought behind this is, everyone knows fossil fuels are not gonna last for long. We must start doing something for that even though it's too late.

    So we have decided that from now on we'll try to take only one bike where there's no need of 2. We'll change the bikes every alternate trip so that both the riders will get a chance to ride.

    This way, we'll save fuel.
    Save overall expenses.
    We'll have more interaction while on the go.

    Here are the places on map.
    Will put up the pics and log once i come back from the ride.

    Lonavla to Pune is pretty good except the stretch around Dapodi and Khadki.Road from Pune to Ranjangaon(The huge LG and FIAT plants are there) is in top class condition but after that it is not in good section all the way till Nagar.

    Wow! Even hearing the names "Dapodi" and "Khadki" makes me nostalgic. Have been to both these places many a times. I've stayed in Khadki for a good 2 years.
