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

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

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

Ladakh ride 2016: Jispa- Sarchu

I woke up to the mooing of cows in my warm tent, which was getting hot by the minute as the sun shined bright and hot at 7.30 AM. I thought the cows had entered the campsite and the fear of one of them crashing into my tent was annoying me. I first peeped out

2017 KTM Duke 390: First ride

My life took a deviation when I bought my 2014 KTM Duke 390 and since then, it’s been a wild ride. When Bajaj KTM launched the totally revamped 2017 KTM Duke 390, thousands of speculations floated around. They did make me curious but not excited, after all I wasn’t looking to buy another Duke 390.

Quitting your job to travel: Is it worth the risk?

Our employment system is so erm backward that I’ve had to actually write about this. I mean is this what people associate freedom with? Having to leave your job, the only source of income to fulfill your urge to travel and explore. Is that how unforgiving society is, that you can’t extract one or two

Touring Solo across India? Here's what you need to know

From the time I did my first Solo ride from Kochi to Bangalore two years ago, to this time when I recently completed my second pan India solo tour, solo rides have taught me a lot not only in terms of riding but also in knowing myself, in being prepared for uncertainties and in understanding
