The North India Circuit 2 Men – 2 Motorbikes – 2600 kms – Prepration 2

  • Saturday, 18th june – We reached Delhi and our stay was planned with my family. I wanted to get my bike fixed today but by the time I reached home it was 12:00 noon. On Saturday the Noida bullet service centre is closed and we ended up pushing bike repairs to Sunday. I got the ladakh carrier fitted on the bike and Farzin picked up a foot pump from karol bagh, the bullet market of delhi. We pretty much chilled out at home in the latter half of the day.

    Sunday, 19th june – First thing in the morning was getting my bike fixed. We reached service center @ 10 AM as i wanted to get lot of things rectified. The estimate started climbing like a mountain, I got all wiring, cables, headlamp and breaks changed. The estimate including service was about 5000INR. We came back home and mom had cooked ‘chole bhature’ today. It was like a mega meal, we ate 6-7 bhature each and slept like a baby.  We got up after 2 hrs of power nap and pulled out the list of items pending for trek. We shopped in Lakshmi Nagar whole sale market for 2 hrs to complete the list. By 6 PM the bike was ready so went to pick it up. I also bought some spare components which were missing. The bike was all ready to start the trek. The idea was to leave very early next day but was a flop considering our packing hadn’t started. We packed till 1 AM. Phew finally we are ready.

    The Plan

  • The North India Circuit 2 Men – 2 Motorbikes – 2600 kms – Prepration

    Friday, 17th JuneMumbai

    It was D day. The first step towards North India Circuit motorbike ride. I had been waiting for last 2 years for this ride. The day started well with packing my bags and I managed to reach office by 10:30 am. I was feeling a bit uncomfortable since a day before after eating fruit plate in my office cafeteria. I skipped my morning breakfast due to work pressure and it made condition worse. It was about 12:30 – I puked first time and by 1:30 I had to rush to washroom at least five times to throw up. My body was not even ready to accept water. It was defiantly food poisoning from fruit plate I ate. I had to leave immediately for doctor consultation but no luck. I returned home and slept for 2 hrs, this time skipping lunch. It was kind of worst case scenario, so I ended up calling my family doctor in Delhi and she suggested medication. I was feeling lot better within 40 minutes. I boarded the Mumbai local and reached Mumbai Central. Farzin was supposed to transit his bike in luggage but he came in late. In fact he was lucky to board the train himself. His motorbike boarded the next train. We both were very excited and pumped up about this journey.
