Default Post-Lockdown Bucket List - What are you looking forward to doing?

Now that the lockdowns are gradually being relaxed and things are getting back to normal (atleast appearing to), what are some of the things that we as BHPians are dying to do the first (and safe) opportunity we get?

My wishlist:

1) Go for a long ride on my bicycle (ofcourse with necessary precautions). Something that I have been yearning to do from the last 50 days or so.
2) Order my favourite biryani (I am a Hyderabadi, what more can you expect)
3) Fill up my shelves with stuff I barely even use (from Amazon, since they have started deliveries to my place).
4) Drive my dad's Ford Figo TDCi. Its a beast and I absolutely love the push into the seat feeling. (Actually, this should be at the top of the list, but I'm too lazy to change the order now )

What's your's dear BHPians?

1. D-R-I-V-E. Am craving a nice highway drive with the family. Going to make an early morning run to Lonavla, park at a scenic spot, eat home-prepared food and come back.

2. Test-drives! Have a long list of cars ready & waiting to be reviewed (City, Creta etc.).

The above 2 are it for the moment. Am going to avoid any & all social outings, as well as restaurants / malls etc. for a long time to come. Mum is 76 and I don't want to risk the tiniest chance of bringing the virus into the house.

Have driven hardly 10 kms in 2 months. So first thing post lockdown will be to go on a long drive.

Then if things subside in Mumbai soon, and interstate travel eases, a trip to my native (Mangalore). Arrival of monsoons would be an added bonus on that drive.

Had been lazy and not cycled regularly for the past year, so plan to get back on the saddle religiously.

KAZA-MANALI, enough said!
Let this all open up, I have had enough of the highways and inter state drives during lockdown due to my work. Now I need to hit Kunzum and refresh myself!

My List;

1. I wist to test ride KTM Adventure 390. Been lusting after it for long. But also feel that i have to wait for the economic scenario after Covid-19 issue to stabilize before committing to a new EMI.
2. Go on a weekend trip to Chikamagaluru, which got cancelled due to the Lockdown. (Adding point 2 only because it would not be a list without it)

Single most important priority after lockdown is work. The last two months have been absolutely disastrous with piling expenses, halted payments and no income. Need to get businesses going again, and that is the single most important thing on my list. Everything else can wait. Covid has taught us how to prioritise.

Also, I was about to go ahead with repairs and renovations at home which involved a bit of civil work. Things were just about to be started when the lockdown was announced. This however will have to wait. I have a 90year old and a 6month old at home and can’t take any chances.

1. Regroup with my motorcycling buddies and head out for a breakfast ride. Will keep it in mind to take every possible precaution. It has been ages since I have ridden.

2. Order in "Red Pepper Chilli Garlic Lollipop" from this small eatery in Kolkata which goes by the name of Kimli. (If you happen to be in Kolkata, try visiting this place).
