This is the starting of never-ending love for travel on motorcycle. You are going to read #1st chapter "Jump".
(Me and my best-friend) We both were free, nothing to do but spent some saving on a chai tapri when a common friend of ours informed use that he planned a 3 days vacation in Agra with his girlfriend. We were jealous, not because we didn't had such a girlfriend at that point of life but because we didn't had money for such lavish holidays. Expensive hotels, city tours, 5 star restaurants was not our style. I was fortunate enough that my parents got me a new Bajaj Discover 125CC 3 months back which i could ride to Agra.
The plan was to ride till Agra from Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh on Independence Day 2014, stay one night there take another 2 hours ride next morning to Fatehpur Sikri then come back to Agra for a night stay and leave Agra on 3rd day for Kanpur. We never did long rides, I was 18 enough to ride a motorcycle, Hemant was on learners license (which means he could only ride in city, not on highway).
We left our home at 3:30 am, it was dark when we hit the highway but soon sun came up and so do trucks. Like an amateur rider we didn't checked our tire pressures before-night, so we had to stop at our 1st 20 km for our tires. The plan was to reach Agra in 6 hours but due to our long breakfast halt we were an hour delayed.
