Taj Mahal & MP Nov’2010

Taj Tigress on her morning walk

Taj Mahal – The Epitome of Love.

Madhya Pradesh – The Heart of India.


The ride to Ladakh has ended and this time I decided not to courier the bike back to Pune. Instead I left the bike in Delhi so that I can ride it back sometime later, on a long weekend.

The plan being, I fly to Delhi on the last working day of the week and then ride back via Rajasthan & Gujarat in 3 days, exploring some places, enroute.

Couple of long weekends came and I couldn’t execute the plan that I have made to ride Fiero back to Pune.

1st Week of Oct-2010
It is confirmed that office will remain closed for a week during Diwali. Came up with a first draft of the trip plan and the never ending process of updating it to cover as much as I can started, with some useful inputs from Hitanshu. People were pinged to join for the ride but not many are lucky to have their office giving them a week off. Flight ticket got booked and it was now confirmed that I’ll, finally, be riding the bike back.

Last Week of Oct-2010
Spending countless hours trying to get a perfect trip plan, I decided to scrap it all and just shortlist the destinations I want to visit and just ride on.
