A ride has been planned for Saturday morning to the McDonalds/KFC complex near Garhmukteshwar, Uttar Pradesh.

3 of us, including me, are confirmed for the ride.

We all meet at 5:15 in the morning at India Gate.

Anyone interested, please PM me.

Guys, this looks set to be a cool ride and I look forward to catch up with all of you soon.

Unfortunately I have an 8am appointment this Saturday at bike workshop in prep for my Sunday ride. :(

I'll have to grudgingly skip this one. Have loads of fun and please do post some pics.

Nevermind, mate. Have a good Sunday ride.

Hi guys, recently got my ban uplifted. Any plans for tomorrow ?? I own a Wagon R, if its not an issue

EDIT:
Just read that the plan is shifted for tomorrow. Already driven a lot last week, I don't think I can join tomorrow for Garhmukteshwar, Uttar Pradesh. But will look forward for future drives (or rides )

The ride to Garhmukteshwar invoked a great sense of deja-vu. Why wouldn't it? From riding over the river Kaveri, I was now riding over the river Ganga.

Having started after a delay of half an hour, we covered up lost ground well, and just as the first beam of the sun broke into the horizon, we were riding into the beautiful countryside.

To add to the fun, Bhpian Sting joined us for the first time on his Triumph 'El Blanco' Bonneville. A beautiful machine which looks well sculpted from whichever angle you look at it. I consider it to be the Grandmother of these modern day motorcycles. She's sweet, quiet and oozes of charm, but if she's in a fit of rage, you would not want to be in her way. Mesmerising machine, this.

I never quite imagined Uttar Pradesh roads to be in such fine condition, with barely a pothole. However, drivers having absolutely no road manners made up for the deficit in convincing fashion.
I'll still rank the Bangalore - Chitradurga expressway to be the best multi-laner I've ever ridden on. In every aspect.

I would have liked it more if all of us maintained similar speeds and rode together in each other's sights. Why ride just to reach the destination? Nevermind, though.

Following sumptuous breakfast at McD and a great discussion on our favourite topic, we all headed back to the concrete jungles and bade each other goodbye.

Total Distance Ridden - 247 kms.


1. Compulsory photo taken at 5:10 AM near India Gate.

2. The Lineup.

3. From the Kaveri to the Ganga. She's seen it all.

4. Photobomb. Because posing is too mainstream.

Superbly written, barcalad. It was an absolute delight riding with the group, great camaraderie and riding skills. What else could one want on a Sunday morning ride.

Cheers,
Sting

Thanks for coordinating & sharing details of this Sunday's ride. Looks like you guys had a lot of fun. Look forward to join one of these soon.

Driving manners are pretty much absent everywhere in and around Delhi - but ironically the roads are great fun and wide compared to Bangalore. I had the same realisation when I moved to Delhi from Bangalore a couple of years back

My pleasure. It would be great to have you on board. Do PM me your number.

Well, I second you on your realisation. Riding in different kinds of traffic and terrains is an experience in itself that no magazine can teach you!

Sorry mate, this being a long weekend, I'm heading out of town. Will definitely try to join the next one.

Whilst on the topic, does it make sense to create a WhatsApp group for planning Delhi/NCR weekend rides and sharing info etc?

The nature of a mobile IM like WhatsApp makes it eminently suitable for pre & post ride communications & any last minute info sharing.

There is a group.

Send me your number and I shall add you there.

Others wishing to join this group can do so too.
