There's nothing great about the ride or anything to brag about & I believe this can be done by anyone. So it all started about 4th week of August - an itch to ride somewhere, somewhere long, very long.
And the reason for the itch - looking into a little background sometimes during 3rd week June when I got hold of my C250R & having completed the K figure in 2 days, I'd to leave the bike at ASC for a week; reason - engine seizure (http://www.cbr250.net/forum/cbr250-...0r-strands-middle-nowhere-did-happen-you.html
); Anyway Honda replaced the entire engine under warranty & a week later after that, I'd to be away from the country on job assignment without an access to any automobile. So naturally when I came back, I wanted to ride very badly.
Had about a week +2 comp off & applied leave for 3 days totally making solid 14 days; I could do the routine South of India or Kerala, but, since I haven't explored much of North, I thought this would serve a good opportunity. Since I'd good friends at Pune (North of India), I thought, I could meet them & then take it from there.
Thanking my work schedule, it took another week of postponement & I started my journey precise on Sep 3rd;
Day 1 - Ride from Chennai to Pune, covered about 1172 Kms in 15 odd hours; Started at 2:09 AM & reached Pune (Tunnel two after getting lost ) was around 17:00; included only about 5-6 fuel breaks + 45 min BFast break at Tumkur.
Immensefully I need to Thank my friends from my bottom of my heart to Mr Vishwas ji; without him, Pune trip would've been absolutely useless. Its only because of him, another friend Satyen & the entire gang of friends in Pune that we met at Motocafe (India's first Motorcycle themed cafe), today, is an evergreen memorable day in my life.
