Log part 1:
It had been 3 days after the much awaited Calicut ride and there was some part of me that wanted more. Coincidentally a post in the random discussion thread mentioned of a ride to Kodachadiri. Yes! that was it !exactly what the doctor ordered. Something to get rid of that "feeling" and and i pretty much decided that this needed to be done at any cost. A little skeptical whether my bike could do it. But hey.. I didnt care! .
D day and all nuts and bolts on my UI180 tightened i head on to johns place and get drenched in the rain even before it began all thanks to a beautifully planned bottle neck called Silkboard junction! Over at john's , Praful and Deejay were there catching up on the latest and waiting for the waterworks to subside. Praful confidently told that the rain wont last long ! and i knew for sure we are in for a long wet spell! Rain delayed our start from a early 7:30 pm to a late 9:15PM, and that, after we decided come what may rain or no rain Kodachadiri here we come! But Now we had a small suspense building up! Niranjan the third hero our ride was not answering his phone and that had us confused about his confirmation for the ride. The suspense was all over while John and I were tanking up . Ninja had over slept .
Phew. with that sorted out we head out towards the meeting point, or at least we thought. Once on NICE road the rains got pretty heavy ,but the growls and grunts from our stomachs were louder than thunder! So we stopped at a Dhaba and informed Ninja, incidentally he was also having dinner! Soon we caught up with him and Tumkur was decided as the next stop. We arrived at Xeno's place wet ,dripping and desperate for a change of clothes! Xeno's place... full floor carpeting and ample space space to dry off everything.. and i mean EVERYTHING!
All set and done we crash for the night.
more from this later..
