Motorcycle diary (incomplete)

I always wanted to go on a long bike ride, so i decided to drive down to Pune once my college gets over. I was bit hesitant as the distance is around 800kms and I was planning to go alone, but just a week before my bike ride i watched motorcycle diaries and at that moment my decision was final to ride till Pune.

Finally, I left bangalore on friday around 6 in the morning. After cruising at 80 km per hour I reached Hubali around 3 pm. there was a diversion to karwar, I had an option of going to karwar and staying there or staying at my grandmother’s place in kolhapur. As i had few extra days at hands i decided to take a detour and reached karwar around 5.30 in the evening. I was so tired that i went to sleep as soon as I had my dinner. I decided to leave karwar next day morning.

According to the plan I left karwar in the morning, I was excited to ride through the dense Dandeli forest. But as I was about 40kms away from Karwar just before the dandeli forest …..

DSC_0274I decided to leave next day morning and on the way, buffalo suddenly came in the middle and I crashed into her, my bike skid and I toppled over but luckily i fell on the buffalo so both of us did not get hurt that badly.

DSC_0306This is the turn where I fell!

DSC_0316It was just before the dandeli forest, but luckily there for few people who helped me and i went back to karwar in a tempo with my bike. It took me almost three hours to give my bike and get medical treatment. I was stuck there for two days as it was a weekend. According to the tempo driver I was very lucky as I decided to travel on saturday which is a day of god shani, and it is always risky to travel on Saturday. Also he was glad that I wasn’t hurt badly after hitting a buffalo, who is Yamaraj’s vehicle.













Hence I decided to stay in Karwar for 4 days, my wounds were healed and mechanic told me to fix my bike in pune itself. I sent my bike through cargo and I left Karwar by bus.

This was an end to my adventurous journey. Now it is a recovery time
