A memorable ride to a friend's wedding and much more

Riding to a friend’s wedding always gets me excited. There have been ample occasions where I’ve missed out on friend’s weddings held within the city, but happily gate crashed when someone gets married at his native place or at least decent riding distance from home. So this one wasn’t any different! A ride to an ex-colleague’s wedding turned out to be an amazing ride.

Route & distance: Mumbai-Hubbali-Jog Falls- Murudeshwar- Udupi- Coorg- Davangere-Mumbai: 2560 kms

Sharing a few images here:

Daylight after a night’s ride:





Interior roads towards Jog Falls- as against my apprehension of roads being bad, they turned out to be pretty good



Lovely roads to ride amidst peacefulness.

The famous Jog Falls…..delayed rains meant scanty streams 



Post some terrible bouncy roads….reach Murudeshwar to catch a sight of the mighty Lord Shiva at Murudeshwar



The Murudeshwar Beach



The little one finally gets some much needed rest



New day, new destination to head towards


Green vistas along the way



Thought to surprise another friend’s parents by an impromptu visit- but they surprised me by not being at home



Yaaaay, and here come the twisties



And the roads get even better

A colleague’s ancestral house



Time to say hello to the gentle giants (sorry for too many pics- couldn’t help)

Next Stop- The Nyingmapa Monastery aka the Golden Temple













Moving on to say hello to the clouds





Lord Ganesha immersion proceedings





And thereon it was a scamper back home. Missed my way, rode through some jungle and villages which weren’t safe for night travelers. This fuel pump showed up after 200 kms when I was below than half tank. So had to pace my ride- not too fast to run out of fuel and get stranded at an unsafe place nor too slow to be held by someone. It wasn’t a great feeling to be frank.



Stopped for a short nap and tea break.



Time to get into cruise control right till home sweet home



Hope it wasn’t too boring. Thanks for watching

Thanks for the flattering comment Well am more like a point and shoot photographer. The clouds suddenly gathered and I didnt want to miss the moment- just parked the bike closer to the edge and put the cam to work.
