Raid De Gujarat: Bhadthar- Bhuj

After experiencing village life for a day, I thought of heading straight to Kutch On the 3rd of October without wasting more time. Bhuj was roughly 350 kms away and I was glad to be doing that distance after long time. Major towns in Gujarat are closely connected hence no ride really seems like a

Reviewed! 60,000+ KMS Alpinestars Viper Textile Air Jacket

Since I started touring PROPERLY in 2013, I had this inclination towards expensive, good looking jackets. I wanted one that was bright and went well with my KTM Duke 390. The problem back then was the non- availability of good quality, long lasting value for money jackets. The market for such products was as old

The Indian ADV scene & they just grabbed you by the...But, its a BMW!

The thing that’s been stunningly hilarious, frustrating and stupid lately is the pricing BMW Motorrad India launched the G310R and G310GS motorcycles at! For around 4.5 lakhs on road in India, and some called it ‘decent’ pricing. Why? Well, because its a BMW! But is it? I’m not sure if BMW Motorrad was inspired by

Road travel better than air travel for distances

Lately, I’ve been travelling more on flights to reach other parts of the country than on my long distance touring steed- the KTM Duke 390. And that has brought me to the point of making a decision on the type of travel I would be indulging in in the near, and farther future. Air travel

Motorcycle ride in gujarat- okha port on bike on ktm duke 390

I was quite bugged with riding short distances in Gujarat, most towns remain close to each other and are well connected with good road network. By the time you head out of town, stretch a bit on the motorcycle, take some pictures- you reach your destination. It’s actually that easy! The longest I would have

Raid De Gujarat: Blackbuck Sanctuary- GIR forest- Somnath

Two of the places I was keenly looking forward to in Gujarat for wildlife were the GIR forest and Velavadar blackbuck reserve. I started peacefully at 10.30 AM from Vadodara the next day since I were to only travel 180 kms to the Velavadar Black buck National Park situated near Bhavnagar. The ride would take

Raid de Gujarat: Bangalore- Mumbai- Vadodara

Kutch, the wildlife in Gujarat, tasty food, pleasant weather, smooth roads were highlights I wanted to cover in the magnificent state in December 2016. But, a family wedding and my recent trip to Ladakh didn’t make it feasible. Then I thought it would be better to visit the Rann in a season where there’s no

Basecamp GPS phone mount for motorcycles- Reviewed!

My struggles with navigating the streets of unknown cities were endless. I’m a little bad with directions plus I hated stopping repeatedly to check my phone’s GPS. I needed something that was in my field of vision, something that was waterproof, was spacious enough to hold loose change and was able to accommodate another phone

Ladakh ride 2016: Sarchu- Leh

So I spent a day in Sarchu and walked around, took pictures, put my gear to dry. All that was primarily to acclimatize myself to the ‘high’. In the process of doing so, I met a lot of travellers, at the dhabha where I stayed. Most just halted for snacks and continued towards LEH while
