RESPECT TO YOU..Enjoying a solo ride or drive at times has a different relaxation and happiness. Lovely narration. You touching triple digits must have really given you an adrenaline rush. Hooked on to this thread. Cheers…

RIDE ON | RIDE HARD | RIDE SAFE.

This is what i call 'Back with a Bang', superb write-up dude. I think i can draw inspirations for both biking and write-up here at one place. The vehicle you are referring at the petrol stations is called "Meen Body" (yes we really call it that way) vehicle here in Chennai, used mostly in slums. Like you said it is made exclusively off theft vehicle parts and RX100 being the no.1 supplier for these vehicles. Its a strong contrast that we live in a country where people were thinking, either to go with heated seat or a normal one on their Mercs and Beemers and these 'Meen Bodys'. Its a crazy country afterall, although in a good way.

"jaak baba tumi fire ele tahole" :- Thank god that you are back.

Well I do not have words to describe how I feel or what, as you are very much aware of my state of mind. Just waiting eagerly for you to finish this travelogue completely. Once done, I will probably take out some print out of it. In fact, of all the travelogues you plan, as you have a perfect sense of writing and photography.

Chalie jao poncha (Just kidding brother)

Thanks Preet for bringing this Thread way back to its life.

One thing i would like to mention - I really love the way you narrate each and every incident and its very rare to see someone mentioning their parents in a travelogue. Touching indeed and Kudos to them for their strong support.

Waiting for the next edition with eager and again one thing. You really inspire me to take my 200NS on such a ride.

Preetam,

Nice Travelogue. Read the whole thread today. Except for the misadventure on Day 2 it looks like you have had a fairly good trip this far. Looking for more updates to the rest of your trip. Rating this thread all *.

BTW do you know what this reminded me of: Heard of Oisin Hughes if not read this : Oisin's Log 34k Mile Solo Travelogue of his through the Americas.... Will inspire you more

Preetam Da! Very well written log. Totally hooked on to it. Eagerly waiting for the rest of the log.
Just a one question - How do you manage to pull through the whole day with just chocolates, energy bars and tang? What other diet do you maintain?

Whoa... Preetam ji, a totally awesome trip log.

I understand you must be busy, but can you share the rest of the trip too ? Lot of souls are very eager, I think.

Also, one more thing. I see that you have put on a wind-screen in your bike between Day-3 and Day-4. Is it from RTMDesign? Can you also tell how it held up in the entire trip?

Cheers

Preetam da, not fair to keep us waiting like this.

Please complete this travelogue. Many others, like me, are eagerly waiting for it.

It been three months since there is any update on this thread. Back to hibernation?

Common, three months is too long. Isin't it?

I am planning to make a Bangalore-Asansol-Bangalore trip on my Pulsar 200NS in October 2015. I would like to know the road conditions at present. I always wanted to do this but I was sceptical. However, Preetam's travelogue gave me the belief that it is possible. So, I am embarking on my first very long ride. Hope to get some advice from experienced riders.

Regards,
Anirban
