Thanks for the correction. There was 1 Rocket from HRAT and 2 from BRAT and there were 3 Tigers from HRAT and 2 Daytonas from HRAT and 1 from BRAT

All the above became a kichidi and I lost count of who was a BRAT and who's a HRAT

Hence aluminium instead of iron.

IB challenge is indeed designed to bust your butt
It used to be a challenge with the smaller bikes we used to have, with sustained top ends possible in the region of 100-110 kmph only.

Now with the faster breed for the masses (CBRs, Dukes, etc.) along with the bigger imports, I'm not sure there's much of a challenge to the same extent, as you need not be in the saddle either near non stop or for the full 24 hours to complete 1600 kms. 16 hours or thereabouts would suffice. Which is very doable, and something most of us do anyways on long haul touring days before stopping for the night.

Avi, for the sake of good order a small correction - Please note that the number of stops have no bearing on the IB rides (there is nothing like AB though it was a reference in a very lighter vein)

IB rules, all it states is that a ride of 1000 miles/1600 kms to be completed in/under 24 hours.

For your info see the IB types below;

It was 2455 KMs of total ride. No cat spotting :( Though riding in forests were lots of enjoyment. My cousin from Chandrapur joined me for Tadoba ride. We were roaming all the buffer zone inside forests.

Pune to Nagpur is 720 KMs, took 12 hours with 10-12 small breaks for stretching legs. Starts in the morning 3.30 AM and reached Nagpur 3:15 PM to my relatives house.

After each break I was eating mix of dry fruits and had Poha at two places. Dry fruits gives good energy, no fatigue after reaching Nagpur. Same I did while returning.

We never called ourself HRAT as it sounded silly. BRAT fell into place easily though

Thanks for the info. Personally, I would never do that to prove a point. Well, I think to each their own

Wonderful. Which days you were in Tadoba? Reason iam asking you is that HRATs rode to Tadoba from Oct 24-Oct 26 and your pics reminded us of that beautiful journey. Pics and a short travelogue coming up later today

Do share how was the ride. Were you happy or unhappy with how Bonnie performed?

Sorry Pawan. Your photos realy look great bro. I was just joshing with Avi.

Coming back to your photos, I have ridden through a few sanctuaries myself, though personally have never had the guts to shut off my engine midway and pause to take photos.

Inside these places, the silence is always scary (once your engine is off) and you feel the hairs stand on the back of your neck as you actually FEEL hundreds of hidden eyes looking at you.

What I think I look like ......

Exactly my thoughts and this was the first time I rode to a forest sanctuary and it was a blissful experience and fully concur on the thought of some wild animal pouncing on you in the middle of that jungle

Woah, whats that meat piece?

Guys, please visit my travelogue for our 1000kms motorcycle trip to Tadoba Forest Sanctuary and share your comments

Slurrrp !!!

Its mid-day here and the steak looks really jucy.

Doc, if any tiger was watching you at that point of time, you would have looked like that to the T.

Pawan, wonderful ride.

Indeed, there's a lot at 'steak' here

As for the group name for Puneri owners of the Hinckley firm's bikes, I'd prefer the name T.R.A.P - now let the jokes begin

@mobike : I visited Tadoba on 28th (Morning Gypsy Safari) and on 29th with our own car. Ride was good. Did'nt take much photos near gate. Have you spend night inside Tadoba forest in any resort ? It's amazing experience to spend night inside forest. One must experience it.

I am visiting Tadoba since my childhood, when it was open to all without any gate and the entry was free without any guide to anywhere in the forest.

My close relatives and cousins stays in Chandrapur. We still walk inside forest with just one bamboo in our hand for self defense from the wild animals

Ricci - the RAT part I think is univesrsal within the Triumph owners community and may not be negotiable


But PRAT is not too bad

As per Oxford Dictionary "prat" is =

Noun - informal
1. An incompetent or stupid person; an idiot.
2. A personís buttocks.

Many will no doubt agree to 1 above, that we are all "stupid" or "idiots" for doing things which "normal" people don't do like tearing around on two wheels after paying good money to own "widow makers".

2 above is also suitable as we do lot of thing by the "seat of our pants" or effectively by that part of anatamy, whilst we are on two wheels.

Agreed we are all in the TRAP of two wheels, my pick would be PRAT

Best Regards & Ride Safe

Ricci my brother, biking is all about freedom.

I am not sure if any biker, be he a frat, a brat or a prat, would appreciate being en-trap-ped.

Wow! That actually rhymed ..... DRAT!
