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 …..
I 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.
It 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
