I never had a great attachment with my machine. For me, it was just a bike, or, just a Bullet, which took me to places. Especially from my room to the office, and back. I really liked the idea of going rides to places. And I got a Bullet too... But starting off is what difficult. The furthest I have gone is searching for riding destinations in Wayanad or some other hill station near Bangalore. And that's all...
That's when I heard one of my colleagues going for a 2-day ride to Kerala. And the ride dreamer in me got high again. Even though my inner voice told me to stay down, I asked her about the ride.
Nimmi was part of the Indian Bull Riders or IBR Bangalore chapter for around 7 months. She had been to 4 rides so far. She was so happy when I asked her about the upcoming Kerala ride. (Yeah, she would be. Coz' I'm the one who has to give her leave approval) She helped me to get a membership at IBR and before I know I was ready for the ride!!!
The ride was to Wayanad, Kerala. Around 8-9 hours of travel, then checking into some camp at Wayanad, night's stay there. Then, next day morning, visit the riding destinations in Wayanad and back to home. That's the plan.
I took my Bullet for a complete service. When he was ready, I felt something strange. There was something I never felt about this bike. He has been with me for 3 years. And I never saw him so beautiful. Yeah... he is also ready for the ride.
