Oh, and P.S- almost forgot this one...would like to dedicate a special Bravery Award to Anku for making it to the ride...DESPITE A INJURED LEG..!!!! Actually, the award is more for his cojones to sit (180 deg) behind Chintan on the 500 to capture pics and vids..
@ Veyron1 - You couldn't ride any slower than this, could you. By the way it was fun riding after a long time.

Anku is a crazy guy. when he called me the night before the ride i could not believe that he actually wanted to ride with me as a pillion.
He was the one to actually wake us up. Had a great time through out.

It was simply beautifull to see the Ninja's & R15's pinning through corners.
Awesome machines i should say.

All in all it was a nice ride (minus Bharat's unfortunate fall).

Hope he is fine now.

Ride safe guys.

I was quite slow on the twisties, don't you think..?

Well, that's the best my machine would do on a averagely aged chassis and semi-offroad Dunlop Geocruisers...a 120 section on 1.85" rim, imagine..(all breadth gone to sidewalls)!! Very little traction on slow corners...I think people behind me could see the ZMA sliding around, going wide..on the moderate and fast ones, thankfully, centripetal forces & C of G's came to my aide...hehe..
And hey...nice offroading on the medians, pal...I saw that...haha.

@anku: c'mon man..admit it...you were enjoying your, ahem, privates off...I haven't heard anybody scream those expletives whilst laughing their guts out...come to think of it, I don't think I've heard those expletives at all...

@balenopower: really nice riding on the Ninja, bro...steady lines, stable angles...sweet...in fact, everybody displayed splendid riding skills over the twisties..Kunal on the 180, straight6 on the 220, the other 2 Ninjas and the R15 guys, and but of course, the mighty RE...kudos, guys...

the best part was everybody knew their limits, apart from that guy with the pillion on the 180 who was hellbent on crashing into one of us. Time to upgrade atul, Get your mean machine asap.

You are the most steady pillion i have ever ridden with bro, no matter how i ride but i dont think i can ever ride pillion with any of the riders that came for the ride.. Thats a proof of your trust in me. Not to forget that you already had an injured leg.

Reminding me of back to back riding, a friend sat behind me 10 years back when i had a suzuki shogun, that was the last time he sat behind me, he almost shouted his lungs out.

@ Veyron.. Dude you maxxed out the Zma's potential on the ride, you were fast buddy.

The Ninjas were smooth, The R15 were revving close to the limiter. Pulsars were surprisingly fast too. The Zma was wild. & the LB had the task to pull 180 kg of weight (of course anku included) to lonavala which it did fairly well.
