It's Friday and all I could think of was my next 4 days of pure bliss! Happened to be ethnic day at work so, draped in saree and our usual last minute plans in mind, we were busy hunting for bikes to hire. Everyone was completely booked because of the upcoming long weekend so we decided to try our luck by going down to one of the offices. My friend and I rushed to Royal Brothers in Indiranagar and met the owner and lucky for us he decided to help by giving his personal bikes. Jackpot! I thought as I headed back to work to somehow get through the rest of the afternoon before I could get the hell out of the city! We decided to leave by 6pm so that we could cover a substantial distance before we called it a day. Well, as always, office meetings always happen when you have an important (better) place to be and that's exactly what happened. The meeting went on way past 6 and by the time we went home, packed and huddled up it was 8. After all the formalities and payments we were FINALLY on the road! 2 bikes, 4 friends and 500 odd kilometers ahead of us. So, here's the thing. The plan was Gokarna but different things awaited us. A light dinner and at about 9:30 we were heading out of the city and I was beaming. Cruising through the highway the only sound I could hear was of our bullets. A couple of breaks for smokes, snacks and a lil rest for the back and butt, it was already around 3am as we entered Chitradurga and we were welcomed by rain. Luckily, we found a place to crash on the highway itself and we called it a day.
