Default Riding season continued, Now 2014-15!

What a start to the riding season. A superb ride this turned out to be. The weather was just right too.

Insaneroller, Amit and me met up with manson, rpanicker, Suresh and the guy with the R1 at BKC at around 6.30 am. We got late by 30 minutes as the RD took some time to start after a week.

We left immediately from BKC only to stop after a km or two as I forgot to wear my gloves . We headed straight to Panvel. On the way saw some Thane guys on the palm beach road with around 5-6 bikes. We took a U-turn from a toll naka(don't where). Manson can give more details on that. Stopped at Dutta vada pav stall and had a bite there after insaneroller and me got lost.

Two of the guys wanted to head back home from there so we didn't go to Karjat and headed back to Bombay.

A BIG thanks to insaneroller for letting me ride the RD. I'm blown away by it. I was able to keep up with the guys most of the times except on Palm beach road. I think I must have touched 160 for sure, if not more. Unfortunately, the speedo wasn't showing anything above 120. The exhaust note is awesome and sounds just like an SBK at high revs.

I'll let the pictures do the talking now.

Bikefreak was not feeling well so didn't come. Thane guys went to Karjat or Lonavala when we were having vada pav. We didn't ride with them. Bonty rode well. We are planning going to Pune on Thursday on bikes. Will you come?

Next time, longer ride, but was a relief to be out riding. Same killa speeds exceeding 210 were clocked.
