An evening earlier , i was messaging on our riding group if anyone was interested in going for a ride tomorrow . And none of the responses were great , except that message which was sent by few of our group riders who had been on a MP tour for 2 weeks earlier; It was their last 2 days in MP and they were supposed to return the next day back to Pune.

On a lighter note they asked me why dont' i come to MP and the next day we can all together come back to Pune .

I took a pause and thought , Yeah , Why not ? Lets Do it ..

I packed my backpack and i was all set to leave next day to Mandav in Madhya Pradesh .

I knew the roads till Ahmednagar and thereafter GPS took me to Mandav. Except for an off-road patch of 20 kms near Shirdi , roads were superb , super Highways .. And This was the first time i had taken this bike for such a long route since i bought it . Enjoyed the really straight and long stretches with very minimal Traffic and pleasant weather.

Time for a Mega refill.

I miscalculated my bikes fuel range and i though i would anyhow get a fuel station ahead and after 450 kms since the last refill i had to stop and get the fuel , But not from a petrol station , as there were no petrol stations near by . Finally when i asked the Locals , they pointed me to a small store who sells petrol .

I was happy that at least i got petrol but this picture below speaks everything. It was injustice to this Italian Beauty with this kind of petrol . HA HA , Anyways the journey continued and within few kms i reached the Destination : Mandav..

Sorry dear .. Benelli .

After a short refreshment at the Hotel , we went out to explore the local History . We headed to Jahaj Mahal . It was named so because of its structure , appearing like a ship with water on all sides .

Its a beautiful place with so much historical things to see ..

Beautiful ..
