I have had out of body experiences before. Like the time when I was 8 and was carried out of the house by my dad when an earthquake had hit. Or the time when I was coming back from that deserted island in Andamans in the middle of the night and 10 feet high waves. […]
Good things have this strange habit. They come to an end. Every time. I guess that what makes them special. That, however, was the last thought on my mind when I left Bangalore today for Mangalore. The plan was simple. Since I had spent 9 days in Bangalore, I needed to reach Mumbai quicker than […]
As we woke up to today’s bright and sunny morning at the early hour of noon, we thought – Let’s make ourselves useful. Krishna is the sort of person who can help you make yourself useful but you need to sort of tell him the way. So I said Nandi Hills.
Good friends are like parents. Once you reach home, they pain you till you get frustrated enough not to discuss it anymore and agree to stay the extra day. For 10 days in a row. I think the similarities between friends and parents end there but then, that is not important here.
Ok, let me say this first. The ride ain’t over yet. The ride started in Mumbai and it will end in Mumbai. I am as close to the 90 day estimate I had with me when I started off. Going broke was an event I had already foreseen. I am just thankful it happened here […]
There are some things which no one can describe to you for. Like how Alice felt when she was going down the rabbit hole. Like what were Raoul Duke and Dr. Gonzo were thinking when they were drinking in the hotel in Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas. Like why the dog sticks its head […]
Took Frosty to MuneerDa finally. Turns out there is more trouble than I thought. There are the problems with the rear sprocket wearing out and the main shaft getting bent and causing oil leaks. There also is some problem with the front discs. And it seems now, the gear box and the engine need to […]
Its been one hell of a lazy stay here at Bangalore. The weather is peaceful. Friends are around. I am living in a “fully functional home” for a change. The traffic is bad but then I don’t move around too much. Met the guys from BikeNomads Bangalore the other day. Great to know I am […]
Now here is the problem. I have friends in Bangalore but all of them are working tomorrow. Its a Friday tomorrow so it’s normal. But having been away from it all for this long, it doesn’t exactly come naturally to me. So, yeah, the problem. Since they will all be working till 7 in the […]
My head was filled with thoughts of the clutch case leaking and the tut-tut sound coming from the rear wheel. The rear sprocket is again worn out and I suspect that is causing the sound. I timed my hotel exit with the possible time when the service centre will open and was promptly there at […]
