    Hi all here we are once again with another ride to Himachal :D
    here is the trip log .... read and see the pics and Enjoy ;D

    Intro:
    I left to Yogesh's place where he decided to hit the roads and discover jungles near Chail area along with him was Darkside [ Shamik] .... I was wondering if I was gonna do Solo trip to rotang-la or chail ..... ......

    Trip Log:
    2nd june - night arround 12o'clock .... was not feeling sleepy and checking some maps to desitination unknown :D
    didnt know where to go and what to explore. Where to start with and where to end up.
    3rd June - Early morning 1:30 am
    Started packing my bags and getting ready to leave for some where I had never been.
    3:00 am - Left home to office and get some cash frm ATM and meet up with fellow club members
    4:30 am - Called up my friends Yogi and Shamik to get some update on the plans they had, found out that some other club was doing the same route which I had decided. .... GGrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    4:45 am - Said by to all and left to NH 1
    All that was in mind was SOLO ride ...

    ;D --- Shortly after hitting NH-1 .... was cruising at 90kmph was lovly weather which was like a shield frm heat ...
    7:00 am - Near Karnal road found my self over taking 15 odd bikers and met up with my old friend Bunny ;)
    7:15 am - Stoped over at Saini Dhaba for some Parathas and coffee and some fags ....
    7:30 am - I was joined by none other than my old buddies Yogesh and Shamik
    [​IMG]
    Sat there in the Dhaba and had chit chat about the rides and talked over and made a plan
    9:00 am - Left frm Kurnal and Aimed for next stop near Shimla

    Then Met up with Yogi and Shamik and had breakfast .... food was decent and you will also find lots of monkeys in the area ...

    After a while, I and Yogi decided to go off road and get inside the forest
    The view was amazing but got stuck twice coz of mad bull charging on the way :D

    Well that was enough of exploration and we headed to Kufri but once we were there we didnt stop even for a min coz of the heavy croud, never thought it was so crouded at this time whn there is no snow ...lolz...

    We cruised down the hill towards Shimla and found our old buddy Salil and his friend doing same route but going further to Spiti
    [​IMG]
    After meeting up with them left for Delhi and I was racing down Shimla road coz I love tht road..
    was doing 80 - 90 with engine turned off most of the times...
    Taking turns and scraping foot rest most of the times...
    And then I lost out Yogi and Shamik on the way back ... May b i was a lil too fast ....cruising at 90+ kmph once i hit two lane highway ...
    Came back home at 12 night
