My First Long Ride on Himalayan

My very first long ride on a bike was to Chennai with my pal Tamil.

The ride was a very sudden plan, I was in Madurai to check my mother's health, the check-up was over before the noon of the day I thought It may take longer.

While returning home in the car, I was bored and started a conversation with Tamil through Whats App, as the checkup was done so quickly am returning shall we meet up somewhere?

Then he questioned all of sudden shall we go to Chennai as a small trip for this new year? I said why not!

But the thing is by how we are going? I had a plan to take my Himalayan for a long ride. Then convinced him and my family to have a trip on the bike to Chennai.

These all things happened on a gap from hospital to my home. I reached home nearly by 4 PM and had a little nap then I was ready for the trip with lots of excitement.

Prepared my bike for a ride by lubbing chains and checking out the air pressure on both tires and tie-up my luggage on a carrier. Then I left home by 5.30 PM to Tamil's home.

Now there's a twist Tamil conveys to his family that he is travelling by car but I was on a bike riding suits in front of his home. Then we convinced his parents and picked up his luggage and set it on the bike.

Finally, the trip officially starts!

Before this trip, we had a plan to visit Kodaikanal, but that trip was spoiled by one of my pal Yogesh, that was a very sad and irritated moment the total day was spoiled.

So i was decided to have a short or long trip and finally that happened. I was so depressed in this lock-down by doing nothing.

The ride now officially starts, I used to always fill petrol on Bharath Petroleum stations, but I don't know why, filled my tank in Ramanathapuram itself and started via ECR.

While riding wee started to discuss what things can we do there at Chennai and we don't know how they are being safe in this Covid season. 

First few Kilometres is used to ride until karakudi then Tamil started to ride after that. We had no plan what to do in Chennai and we had no plans further too. first break we had near by the R.S Mangalam because the luggage was not tighten much it started to fell.

After that we started riding again and had a second break before Karaikudi on a Tea shop and we received a call from Ruban and we told that we are on a trip if you wish or you have a leaves can come and join with us in Chennai. 

Then we started riding again we took the shortest route to Chennai via Karaikudi- Trichy- Chennai.

In this ride at starting itself i learned that we should to take night rides because we face lot during night rides, like while riding can fall as sleep or mood swings and illusions.

After lot of struggles we started to think that we are not able to ride further and Tamil questioned me that can we take halt in Trichy and continue ride at morning but I was very confident that we can complete the ride.

We took breaks on petrol stations every 80 to 100kms we took a break and we exchanged and ridden finally to trichy.

Until trichy the road was little bad condition and in some places they where under constructions too.




After trichy the road was so good kinda like a high way, so we increased the speed and we reached chengalpattu early morning, then we had a coffee break. 

After that break we rode continuously to Chennai, the we took a break near sholinganallur and we reached home by 8 AM in the morning. Our room was locked up for more than 6 months, we cleaned one room to take rest. we haven't had breakfast and slept for few hours. 

The we ordered our favourite food on Andhra Mess and the recipe name " Cashew Briyani", the food was totally ultimate and we slept again then by the evening we went to a tea shop and has "Ginger Tea"
after a year that was totally ultimate. 

that's the end of the ride and end of this blog.

Central Government of India banned Non-ISI-Helmets.

On June 1st Central Government (The Ministry Of Road Transport And Highways) has banned the non-ISI helmets but why? They are claiming by there are more than 56,000 accidents happens because of non-ISI helmets. Most of the brands like Axor, LS2 , AGV are DOT, ECE certified and they are used for racing too and they have the international standards for it too. These helmets brands are more popular than the ISI-certified brands.  Most bikers and motorcycle enthusiasts prefer only these types of helmets because of safety features. Am not blaming the ISI-certified helmets but DOT and ECE certified are more preferred by all. We have popular brands like Vega , Studds are ISI certified brands in India. If the person rides using the other certified helmets rather then ISI certified means they can be fined from 500 rupees to 5000 rupees accordingly, but if you ride without helmet only 100 just joking 😜. If a seller sells an non-ISI-certified helmets means they will be fined up to 5 lakhs and

Dream Bike

The Dream Bike      Years went passing by using the discover 100 for more than 5 years, there are some inner feelings that I need a higher cc bike to reach the destination place a little bit early, and  adrenaline rushes sometimes to feel the speed of the bike. I didn't say that the speed of the Discover in not much slower somehow I needed much power and some offroading capabilities because of the Indian roads.     While in the thought of changing the bike my discover saved me from several crashes and accidents. I'll explain one incident that happed a few years back. I was at a speed of 60Kmph on a curve I thought of taking cornering at the training situation and in a slippery road on a fine rainy day moring while returning back home. I bent the bike totally to the left side of the road it ended in a crash. the left side of the leg is totally worse and the upper skin was fully damaged and the road full of blood. I don't know what to do at that situation some peoples gathere

My First Bike

Few years ago on a fine day I have decided to take my father to the bajaj bike showroom which is in my native. I had no idea what bike to buy. All Indian parents will never give us a chance to buy our first bike as we wish but that whatnot that their thoughts, neighbor and relatives will twist their mind and their thoughts like don't buy and give him a higher cc bike, I have seen your son riding bikes in an aggressive manner on roads, but the fact is I don't know to dive a geared bike then how can they see me riding rash? Bull shits. I finally convinced my parents to buy a bike with at least 100cc for God's shake and they agreed because we have a Bajai M80 at our home commonly called "The Load King", now you know why they agreed from 80 to 100 is not a drastic change right? So on another fine day of the same month I took him to the same showroom and showed him a pulsar 150, the sales guy ruined the plan and told the Cc and specs about the bike all collapsed, then
