Smile When Lonavla Became Hyderabad :D

Pretty much like Eka I was desperate to go for aride as i could not rembere when was the last time I went out of city on my ZMA. So I decided to ride down to lonavla for breakfast on saturday. Told one of my freind while chatting about my plans & he was like 'havent you got bored of Lonavla ? go some distance man go to mahabi via satara ?' But i had been to Mahabi many times as well :( Then it struck me that I can go to naldurg which was around 270 kms from pune on the Solapur Highway. Asked a few people about road conditions & all gave a a Thumbs Up. I was excited called up another friend to ask whether he can join me, he said he may or may not & will let me know by night. I was like cool

I couldnt sleep whole night in anticipation of the ride, woke up at 4:30 puta pair of shorts & T-Shirt(i didnt knew why i picked these but it did came handy ) Left at around 5:20 from home.

The ride was nice with excellant roads & awesome weather. reached Solapur at 8:45 had some snacks for breakfast. Asked for directions for Naldurg & started riding again.

When I reached Naldurg the Fort wasn't as much exciting as i had anticipated(though i only looked at it from the road) Also the weather & roads were so good that i didnt want to stop riding & wnated to ride more. All the way way to naldurg every milestone read Hyderabad 2xx kms Boy that was tempting

I started riding further, i remebered that Boo is in hyderbad thsi weeknd so tried to call him but dang the cell phone was out of network :( Then stopped at PCO gave him a call & said that i was around 2xx kms from Hyderabad, he started laughing & said 'if you are coming lemme know I'll pick you' biy that was enough for me. So i started riding to hyderabad.

Phew sorry guys i suck at writing trrip logs, so now I will stop writing about my trip & let you guys rather enjoy the pics. Hope you like them

My net is kinda slow right now so here's a few pics, will post a few more later

Awesome Techno!! Man, I've been in that situation many times myself. You're just enjoying yourself so much, next thing you know you've covered more distance than you thought you did!

And your Zma looks great with the green background!

Hey Techno that was a very trip. Would have loved to meet you in Hyd.

The pic against sunflower fields is lovely. Makes a good wall paper.
