Default West Coast Trip

Some nostalgic moments captured...

At Azhikode/Meenkunnu beach, looking over the cliff towards West

No amount of Thanks & gratitude can be expressed to hvkumar Sir without whom this entire trip could have not been completed. He was there to encourage, guide when lost, advice when it was crazy. This trip & T'Log is not possible without him.

In 2012, when I wanted to do both East & West coastal ride, I couldn't complete the West coast strip. In the year 2013, when I had absolutely no plan to do any ride, I simply completed the remaining part of the West coast ride. Like I said before, life is full of surprises.

It is a neatly narrated travelogue. Well done Ganesh Chetta . All the photos look startling and beautiful! I have scrolled down the entire travelogue repeatedly to see whether I missed the pic of your mighty ride .

Too good. Too good. Too good.
Been waiting for this travelogue for a while. Amazed with the photographer in Aargee! Way to go pal. Got me hooked on to it. For some strange reason, some of the pictures aren't loading properly in crome. Let me check all this again in a different browser.

Braving the hot and humid weather the entire trip on two wheels which moves the soul. Bravo Bravo

The warrior horse CBR very well deserves its share of portraits in this thread. Looking forward for it

Oh!! Thank you very much to have woken up this thread. BTW, I've completed the entire West coast of India starting from Mangalore all the way up to Narayan Sarovar, as I already completed the South zone upto Mangalore.

Technically that is the farthest West point, but theoretically, I should've done Lakpat as that extends upto Kori creek & extension of West coast.

Pictures? Sorry, I turned to videos, so I only have them, no pictures. Sorry.
