We were 5 members Dr Shankar, Balu,Yashas, Vinay(Myself) as riders and Babu uncle for supporting us throughout tour with equal challenges, we call him as Babu mama.
Bangalore - Delhi, we had booked Air India flight @10:30 AM, we packed our bikes and make sure we reach Airport by 9AM, we reached as per plan but as usual Air India flights never starts on time there was a delay of 1hr, we roamed inside and took photos, after 1hr we got another announcement of 1hr delay, it's now 12:30 we expected to reach Delhi by 4:30, so that we have a buffer of 2 hrs. to catch manali bus booked @ 6:30 PM from Delhi. Now we got an announcement that flight is delayed for some more time. We were like almost messed with our plans and thinking what to do next if we miss manali bus?. Then our team lead by Balu went and complained Air India team, they arranged lunch as bribe to cover their delay. Anyhow Lunch was pretty good, just after lunch we had an announcement that flight will be departed in 15 min. We finished our lunch and boarded flight. Finally, flight started@1:10 PM, we arrived to Delhi by 5PM, Now challenge with us is to collect bikes from luggage bay and catch metro to reach Old Delhi, finally we reached old Delhi by 6PM, took local car to reach Manali Bus stand, it was exactly on time boarding our luggage’s onto bus with relaxed breath. Bus started on time, he stopped to have dinner in-between around 10pm near Highway Dabha, we had Beer, Roti and Dal charges were almost double, light dinner with heavy price. After that we don't know anything till morning 5 AM ,we just remember when he stopped @Kullu for coffee break.
