    Default Solitude on the western ghats..

    Never knew of the next day's destination till I started my bike.Rains, ghats, super smooth tarmac stretches..4 days & 3hrs 1600 kilometers...finally I found what I was searching for...solitude & an answer to a perennial question that was there in mind ever since this year started.."Why do I ride"..
    Trip log is still being written..a couple of teasers for the time being.

    The pleasure is when your rear wheel slides, and you bring it back; and when the front wheel lifts, you take your time bringing it back.

    Oh Adithya!!! Seems you had a gala trip, riding alone in those ghats in rains. Good teasers there. Roll the rest. Eagerly waiting for the log.

    You did not even let me know about the plan Was not able to answer you SMS query on that day, as I was sleeping.

    Day 0:Wednesday 1/7/2009
    12:30 AM
    My leaves are approved for Wednesday through Friday.Started to plan the so called Prep trip for the Big ride to Kaza later this month.
    Initial plans
    Hyd>Humpi>Gokarna


    Got off work at 7:30am in the morning, and as planned called up KP to pick up the Sprinta cans at 9:30 near probiking showroom.Had to meet Satish & pick up the another can of Oil from him.He said he will meet me at Paradise around 10.

    Handed over Avy to my trusted mech Srikant at Probiking,took Arif Bhai's (the service center manager) HRC edition Unicorn & headed off to Paradise to meet with Satish.While at Paradise we decided to head off to the Camera store to pick up a nice case for my Camera & went off there.The owner of the camera store turned out to be bike buff & was kind enough to let me photograph his BMWs.

    Half an hour later at the camera store i realise i dont have my phone on & both of headed back to Paradise to my utter disbelief I found the phone lying on the table I left.(1st sign of good things)..

    Went back to the camera store,picked up the case & went back home & later came at 5:30 pm to collect my bike from service.

    I had deciced to sleep off early but my room mates had other plans, I so much wanted to join in the party but the itch to find the answer was really bugging me..

    8:30 PM
    Went to office for a urgent client call for 1hr.Spoke to Deepak(my boss) regarding my trip to Humpi>Shimoga>Hyderabad

    He initially suggested to do the Hyd>B'lore>Mysore>Coorg but during a smoke he said
    "Ever been to goa in monsoons, its beautiful. Especially if you enter goa from the south."
    I came back home took a good look at Eicher Road maps & decided to head SouthWest,still not sure where to go.

    11:30 PM.
    All my Friends partying in the next room i was busy packing my stuff & getting ready for the ride..some of them came over & said "Adi tu pagal hai,akele kyon jaa raha hai. agar kuch hua toh"
    I so much wanted to tell them that it was the itch for the answer that is making me ride but i knew they wont understand so i joined them for a beer..Finally at 12 in the night i am off to sleep, everything packed, but Destination still Unknown
