Default Day 1

Pre trip prep:
Involved getting the bikes serviced at my friend's workshop, no spares for me just a litre of engine oil (due to unavailability of 20W50 at roadside shops).
Riding gear was a Cramster Jacket,Cramster Gloves,Knee Pads,Woodland shoes, AGV helmet.

Day 1
After a hectic week, with all ends tied up it was finally time to move out,
Me and Alok would start off from Mumbai and sync up with nav in pune.
Alok was meeting me directly after his college lecture !
12:05pm. we meet up at mankurd link road junction on the E.E.Highway and took off!
First break was for lunch @ Panvel Mcd.
We called up nav from there and he said would be late by around 15 mins in leaving office, so it was a slow ride to Pune using the old NH4. This ride is a commute for me since i used to be doing this every other weekend during college grad days.

Nav joined us at baner (4.00 PM) and we rode out on the NH4 towards Blr.
After crossing Shirval, Alok's bike had a flat and we spent around an hour repairing it Post which we had a good segment of riding which ended post karad where we decided to fuel up, and replace the tinted visors on the helmets with clear ones for night riding.
