I too wish to join for a ride !! If I am able to rectify some problems of my bike today I will surely join. The route is a dream to drive/ride.

But be cautious of those drunken drivers!!

Muharram day Micromini meet/ride

We will be calling this a micromini meet/ride as there were only 2 people for the ride i.e Jk and me. I was riding my Pulsar 150 and Jk was riding his friend's Enfield Classic 500. We started at around 8.30 AM from Kowdiar and returned at 12.30 PM. A total of 4 hrs including breaks for taking photos. It was a beautiful ride with the roads still in superb shape on the way to Ponmudi. Hope there will be more people for the next meet/drive/ride. Now for the photos.

Nutty,

Pictures and the road are lovely. JK looks almost handsome

Nutty by the way Muharram is still few days aways. The Kaduvas (?) at Panjapura Mukku are out are they?

The holiday was for Eid Al Adha or Bakrid as we call it in India/Kerala

Best Regards & Drive/Ride Safe

Ram

Was a hastily decided date and hence many PM'ed about not being able to come. Thanks for the updates. We will have a well planned meet another day.

This was my first ever long ride on a RE C500 ( thanks to my friend who loaned me the bike). I did find riding it a bit tough coz of the weight. I was riding a bull after ages.

Roads were awesome once you cross Neyyantinkara. Bull rules when roads dont exist and Ranjit should have seen how I tested it. There were 22 hair pin turns and most are dangerous! The roads being narrow being the other issue ( but smooth road all the way up.). We had to return back fast as dad called up sick :(

Imagine the climate condition from the pix (time 10-11am)

@r_nairtvm - my bad, thanks for correcting me.
@Crazybiker46, Scorcher - why do you want to wait so long for a ride? It's been ages since we had a proper meet. Can't we meet before that?
Jk, I was able to keep up with the bull on the twisties in my P150, but in a straight road the P150 will be toast for sure. The climate was perfect for a ride. Thank you, God for that!
On another note, how about a night ride?

Sheesh. I missed the Ponmudi ride. See what happens when you fail to look at a thread for a few days.

Nice pictures (I am sure nice ride too), JK and Nutty.
