SINDHDURG ryde



Yet another day and the time of excitement for the 8 of us...the day we were supposed to be ryding to MALVAN...a small town in the Sindhudurg district of Maharastra...a place where is the fort built by the mighty Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaja...

We were 8 of us...Conrad, Swapneel, Anuj, Saurabh Dalvi(that's meeh), Vibhav Sawant, Vibhav Shetye, Dipak Kamath and Samrat...First four were the core riders whereas the remaining were for backup * =P *

It started off at 6:30 in the morning at Paulo bus stand..the one opp ktc margao...where 6 of us gathered and made a move for Panjim...as and on it had been decided that the border shud be crossed in 2 hours time...riding at speeds of 60-70 kmph wasn't a bad deal...We reached Panjim in 30 mins...met Anuj and Vibhav Sawant...one from Ponda and the other from Bambolim...

Five minutes halt and we were off to Sawantwadi...now we had to rush coz we were around 75 kms away from sawantwadi with just 90 minutes in hand..and more careful coz riding fast invites accidents...cruising at speeds of 65-75 kmph we reached the border in 50 mins...i was curious to know if we were on the ryte route so we decided to get it confirmed at the check post so we got that done and headed to sawantwadi...jus 40 kms more and there we had made it to wadi...that's actually the short-form of sawantwadi...according to the locals...a beautiful lake in the middle of the town cudn't resist us from doin some fotography so got our hands on the cams and did a lil clickin here n there...

Now heading for Kudal...around 16 kms from wadi...made it at around 9:30am and halted for breakfast coz we had a reli tiring ride yet and were hungry..so got the munching job done at a local dhaba...8 of us had the misal pav and 5 extra bread's each for jus 120 bucks...aint that cheap?? had it been the same in GOA...i would be ryding a new byk by now...hehe...

So moving to the the final destination now...around 25 kms from kudal...that's malvan...a beautiful place on the konkan coast...we made it there at 10:40am and were damn tired but the excitement to see the fort took the feeling of tiredness away...the fort is on n island so we had to make a journey by a boat..which we called the local titanic..* =P * 27 bucks per person per ride was pretty cheap and a stay for an hour to explore the fort aint a bad deal..thats what we had in mind...but i guess the hour wasnt enough to explore the fort.almost the size of an airport...lol..we held our nerves and ran all across the curvature coz the tym wasnt sufficient and going walkin would be a very bad idea...and offcourse a fotoshoot was necessary coz the view was spectacular with loads and loas of places for an extreme good fotography...the time alotted to us was limited with lods to explore and loads and loads of fotography to be done...so we kept our ass moving and clicking pics...it was 12:00 noon and we had finally made it up in a hurry....got into the boat and moved for the shore...at around 12:30 we left for the rock garden but unfortunately couldnt get tro coz it was underconstruction...so we moved for the Tarkalli beach..the place where we did somethin which we had never done before...RIDING ON THE BEACH...this was fun...coz it was the first time i saw anuj doin a burnout on hez karizma.. ;) and conrad accompanied him...here we did some awesome fotography and as usual it was the tym for some foooooooooood...lol...

75 rupees for a chicken thali wasnt a bad deal especially when you are hungry and the food is so delicious...i jus couldnt resist it and pounced on the meal...and at around 2:30pm we headed for goa...

On the way back i exchanged my dio with anuj's karizma...and we made a move...around 2kms away from kassal on a checkpost a cop stopped us and emanded to show him ur license so that he could do the entry in the registry book...as he was doin hez job a local came up with a camera in hiz hand...and all of us reacted...wtf?? this is anuj's cam andhow cud this local geddit?? when asked he told us that he had found it fallen near the checkpost...this was a shock for us but we reli appretiated what that person did...so we requested the cop to handover the cam to us but this guy didnt let us take it so easily..and demanded for a bribe..we gave him 30 bucks and ran away cursing the him...big tym...

The guys were gettin late so we had to rush and were at speeds of over 80 kmph on some stretches...i had the karizma in hand so i cudnt resist going full throttle..that was 120-125 kmph...this was amazing coz i cud feel the breeze at that speed and it was the very first time i had actually done 125 on any bike...that too a double seater...

We kept on moving and finally reached panjim...shuuush was our reaction cuz i had a serious butt ache and i cudnt get my ass on the byk nemore...we dropped anuj and vibhav sawant there and headed for margao..i got my dio back and anuj hez karizma...now we were almost done so i decided to go a lil slow...rydin at 60 kmph we reached margao in around 40 mins..it was 6:50pm..and a very tiring ryde had cum to an end...it was tiring but fun....am missing it already....
