Go Goa Gone..!!!

Leave a Comment

This was our 1st trip to Goa and doing it on our Bikes was Special indeed. As usual the plan was proposed long back on gTalk on a boring day at office ;)

A destination such as Goa has to be visited with a bunch of friends. Sadly, our college mates backed out but we were still hell bent on doing the trip as the time was 'Perfect' and the excitement of doing a Ride close to 600Kms (one way) bettering our previous best of 530Kms to Munnar, kept our interest alive.

Thankfully few other guys showed interest and we stuck to the Plan. So finally we were 6 guys with 5 Bikes:

Vinay (ZMR)
Nithesh (200NS)
Nikhil (Avenger)
Tribhuwan (Karizma R) & Niraj Kumar
Shashidhar (RE 350)

Round Trip: Close to 1400Kms, 5 Days: October 1-5

Planning Thread:


Meeting Point was fixed as Yashwanthpur ORR Junction at 4:30AM

But for some reason, our friend Niraj who was to Ride the Karizma could not wake up early :) We called and called waiting at Yashwanthpur and then at Nelamangala Junction but to no avail. Clicked a few pics in the meantime ;) As we were unaware of Neeraj's place, our friends decided to park the Karizma at Nikhil's place and Tribhuwan rode as pillion on Nikhil's Bike. Being new to Bike Rides Tribhuwan could not risk Riding his Bike all the way to Goa. So it was a smart decision. Thanks to Nikhil.

We bid goodbye to Shashidhar who parted ways with us from Nelamangala Junction to join us later in Goa after a Coastal trip covering (Dharmsthala- Kukke -Karkala- Kollur). 

Me and Nithesh started off from Nelamangala NH4 Junction around 6:30 am and met Nikhil and Tribhuwan on NH4. Thus started our 1st day's Journey.


It was a smooth sail on the Highway.
