Smile Pavana Ride Pics

Hi guys,

After ages, I went on a small ride on last Saturday. There is dam in Pavana, a place near Pune which is around 45-55 odd kms from Chandni Chowk.

The weather was really good & quite Cold. We started at 6:15 am from CC.

I went on my current ride which is a 2003 Model P150 Classic

Here are a few pics from the ride :-)

@Lohith: Nice to see you here too The P220s perform well on almost all the terrains provided there is no sudden failure. No issues performance wise

@Satish: Yes I had a P180 & then a ZMA. Sold of the P180 two years back & then the ZMA last year for some reasons & got my Bro's 150 which was lying idle since he moved to US. Its fair enough for city riding but makes me feel terrible on highways & thats why this was my first ride with this bike. Hoping to get a better ride sometime.

Not yet I believe, as we didn't spot any one other than us & haven't heard it being as popular either. There is no place to eat or drink in close vicinity, but Lonavla was around 17 odd kms from the Dam

Is the road to Lonavla good? Seems like this is the way to go to Lonavla if you want a scenic route with less weekend traffic.
