AMBOLIM RYDE

ONE OF THE BEST RYDES OF MY LIFE

Woah...wuz jus another day for meeh..goddup in the morning and made a move for college...hadda give the cam to Conrad and Vibhav who wer waitin for meeh at monginis near my college...it wuz 9:10am...they made a move as soon as they got d cam...Conrad wuz a bit pissed cuz he wanted ta make a move earlier..i guess at 8am...but it wasnt possible fer meeh as i hadda attend a lecture in college and i cudnt bunk dat cuz my attendance iz low...lol...Dipak and Pranav wer rydin on the activa and made a move from GEC (Ponda)...They met up in panjim and made a move fer Ambolim...
Now it wuz my turn 2 get along them and meetup at Ambolim...but i wuz stuck vd d stupid lecture in college so i cudnt make a move till 11am...i was impatient 2 move and kept my ey on d watch..the tym wuz movin about so slow...damn...i cursed my lecturer as ever..lol...
Finally d clock ticked 11:26am and i ran towards my byk...geared up vd jacked,helmet and gloves and boomed....lol....had a bad tym rydin in d traffic in goa but it wuz kinda okey cuz i had d excitement to reach Ambolim..this wuz d first tym i waz rydin alone fer a long trip...and it wuz 120kms..one way...so no jokes...
i started crusing frm Panjim onwards...took a halt at Hotel Green Park to checkout my messages and stack my cellfone and wallet into my byk storage...
I wuz in a hurry and i cudnt afford 2 ryde fast cuz d byk wuz get overheated and i wud hav2 halt....i wuz back on track...now it wuz d tym 2 check my tyre air pressure so tuk a halt soon....did d job n waited fer smtym so dat i cud give the engine some cooling....I made a move in 15mins and cruised at 60-70kmph...sum patches of road wer very pathetic...so hada standup on da footpegs o else i wud hav to suffer from buttache...hehe...i did go on full throttle but jus on d straight roads...the atmosphere wuz reli kewl and i loved it....i wasnt tired at all...and wuz fun rydin alone...singing all d way and crusing crusing crusing....wroooooom...
my next halt wuz jus before d Maharastra border...i got a refuel cuz i felt i wud hav ta shell out more cash to do so across the border...that took meeh 3 mins and i wuz off again...there came d border and i held my nerves cuz d roads now wer shit...absolutely shit...i kept on movin at crusing speeds...finally i made it to Sawntwaddi...took a couple o breaks ovah der to ask fer guidance on d directions to Ambolim...it tuk meeh around 10mins 2 reach d Ambolim ghat...and believe meeh d atmosphere ovah der wuz superb...i hadda jolly tym rydin on d ghat...it wuz quite lenghty and spooky...i wuz scared all d way cuz i wuz d onli person rydin out der...saw a couple o monkeys on d way..hehe...cudnt wait fer photoshootin out der cuz i hadda reach out 2 my pals who wer already waitin fer meeh at the Ambolim waterfall...i kept myself kool and diverted feomr d fear of bein all alone on d ghats...d weather out wuz cool and it kept meeh refreshed...after rydin fer 30-40mins i finally made it 2 da topmost point of d ghat....my frenz wer waitin out fer meeh der...dey wer happy 2 see me and wer shocked cuz i wuz quite fast....it wuz 01:35pm and i had covered d 120kms trip in 129mins....
We then moved to another place in search of a good rest fer FOOOOOOOOOOD...lol...ordered sum stuff fish...the Kingfish wuz YummmmY....did sum photoshoot out deh and it wuz tym to move fer d next spot....d road wuz sick sick sick...finally v made it 2 da spot by 3:20pm...and believe meeh we cudnt makeout d roads cuz d area wuz foggy...."FOGGY AT 3PM....FCUK FCUK"
We wer in search of d spot wherein we cud see the 11 waterfalls....but it wuz disappointin fer us cus d fog sopilt d show....none of d watells cud b figured out frm here...damn...
It wuz 3:40pm and we hadda make a move o else wue wudnt make it by 7pm...did sum photoshoots on d wayback....O and btw saw many many many monkies...Conrad hellowd hez broz....hehe...
these guys wer rydin quite fast and i wasnt in d mood to so i wuz left alone on d ghat again...wooohooo...lol...dis tym der wuz sum traffic so i had sum relief..hehe..v made it to d border...did sum refuellin and it wuz tym fer Conrad n Vibah to zoom..cuz dy had sum work and wer late already...Dipak,Pranav and myself wer crusin....we road nicely vdout takin ne risks on the way...it wuz d best ryde of my life eventho it wasnt the longest one....V made it 2 panjim and took the longer way out i.e. tro ponda cuz we hadda drop Pranav to d college...d roads wer full of traffic and it wuz irritatin 2 see trucks and buses all around ramming....damn...we wer short of tym and we hadda rip at ne cost eventho d roads wer loaded with vehicles...v dropped Pranav in ponda and moved fer margao..i dropped Dipak at hez place and fianlly made it fer my house..it wuz 7:20pm....woah...it wuz tiring but thrilling and d best day of my life....
