Exactly condor, I was about to write this now till I saw your message. There was no pic of the newly wed couple.

Riju, post the pic of Mr & Mrs Riju together.

Ishaan you said it man. Thanks for the advice though :-) .
samurai she loves to travel like me and does a wee bit of photography too.

condor and abhi I dont think it would be appropriate to post pics of the couple here.Check you inbox.

mjothi what you said makes a whole lotta sense. Intelligent guys do come your way, hence made sure that I was in the center lane while speeding.

ramkya1 here you go

Welcome back, Riju kuttan. Looks like you brought the rains with you.

I honestly felt the initial lot of pics this time werent upto your usual standards, and then i saw the part about the laptop, which reconfirmed my thought.

Nice write-up, and sure would be useful as a guide, if sometime i decide to head to the same place.

What a coincidence, got a similar clock presented to me at work (for having served 5 years), however mine is 245/40R18s !

Nice pictures and travelogues, initially I thought why would you want to travel so much on your HM, just lock yourself up in a nice place, not to be disturbed

But you cleared the confusion.

Can someone translate this pls...

Enjoyed reading this, thanks for sharing. I liked all the photos too, especially this portrait: http://aycu21.webshots.com/image/365...2629765_rs.jpg

Doing 170? I don't think I would ever reach that top speed :-)

rj: Poda Dog
lorry: Poda mental son
