"... and the road becomes my bride. I am stripped of all but pride.
So in her I do confide. And she keeps me satisfied.
Gives me all I need and with dust in throat I crave.
Only knowledge will I save. To the game you stay a slave.
Rover wanderer nomad vagabond. Call me what you will...
But I'll take my time anywhere. Free to speak my mind anywhere...
And I'll redefine anywhere. Anywhere I may roam ..."
- Metallica, Wherever I may Roam
What's New?Yet another solo weekend ride on the Avenger DTSi 220 - this time to Meghamalai and Rajapalayam. It was almost a non-stop 52 hour ride clocking about 1240kms - would definitely rank as one of the craziest bike rides of mine. Couple of trips to Hogenakkal - after a long time I was there at the right time of the year and managed to take the coracle ride in to the canyon. It was great to be back on the highway in a 2-wheeler - this time on the new Avenger DTSi 220. I did close to 1000km around Malampuzha, Siruvani, Mannarkad and Attappadi, during a weekend. Four day solo road trip through Valparai, Athirapally, Eravikulam and Bodimettu. The main aim of the trip was to drive though the ghat road from Aliyar to Valparai, forest road from Valparai to Chalakudy via Sholayar and another ghat section from Munnar to Bodimettu. I could also get a view of the Anamudi peak at Rajamalai, near Munnar. Finally, managed to complete the trip log to Jaipur, Udaipur, Mt Abu, Delhi & Agra after a gap of four months! This was totally a friends and family trip were transport and accomodation was booked in advance - almost a first for me! The trip was memorable, though I missed the little adventures, usually part of most of my impromptu trips! We spent five out of seven days in Rajasthan and one each in Delhi and Agra.
