Riding into the Goan sunset... Living the Harley life more on helmetstories.blogspot.com
Today on the Helmet Stories blog a recap of the 3 days I spent in Goa riding The Street Glide special and partying with the HOGs.
I remember when I was a kid in Chandigarh and the electricity would go off for long periods in the summer we would sit out in the garden and stare at the stars for hours at an end or till the electricity would restart. There were days it would happen till the middle of the night. Gia has no idea about these finer things in life. Living in Mumbai you see no stars in the sky that is and the electricity is on 24/7 365. It's kinda sad...
This is not a picture of dust spots it's a picture of the stars from Bomdila Monestry taken on the GoPro Hero 5. Can you identify the constellations ?
Today on @columnm my ride from Delhi to Pune on the Multistrada Enduro.
The word on the grapevine is that the good peeps at Triumph India have a new launch on their hands and some of us have been to Madrid to ride it at the International launch back in December. What a brilliant motorcycle it is. I can't wait to ride it here in India.
Going through some stuff I came across a sticker from the Grossglockner and then I couldn't get the day I spent carving it's unbelievable roads out of my mind. It was just the third or fourth day of my #globetrotter90 ride for Ducati and I was having a ball. I sometimes can't believe this ride actually happened and it wasn't a dream.
We rode the bikes to Bogibill to catch the ferry(this 5 planks nailed together is the ferry) across the mighty Bhramaputra. The bike ride all the way here and got on the ferry but that was the last time the engine turned over. After that whatever we did it wouldn't budge. On the ferry the captain made us pay more than everyone else because it was an Assam bandh and well if we wanted to go that was the price. After the one hour journey we reached the other side wheeled the bikes off and while we met a man could have been the local "politician& #34; who bought us a cuppa ted chai. In conversation he asked me how much did you pay for the crossing? I told him he nodded his head and carried on talking. 5 min later the ferry captain came to me and said here is your money back we are sorry we charged you more than the rest and then mumbled some excuse of why he did. The "politician& #34; smiled and said sorry you are our guests they made a mistake and then proceeded to get us 10 people to help push the bike. If you are going to go seeking adventure on a motorcycle the bikes are going to break down. However well you are prepared at the end of the day they are machines and shit happens. Wouldn't be fun and adventurous if it didn't . This trip has been a riot can't wait to go back to see more....
The @kcroasters cold brew is the perfect size to carry in your panniers and plonk in the first cold river your see. It's also the perfect brew before he sun sets that is.
What do you love about your @goproin Hero 5 asked someone. This picture answers that question in more than a 1000 words...

The day we got to Ziro we saw a brilliant sunset but we were looking for our hotel so we never broke out the big cameras. So we went back to the spot where we would get a great sun set. Sadly it rained and was overcast all day and we never saw the sun rise let alone set. Just another thing to look forward to next time we go back.
