On my favourite route – GFR {Gurgaon Faridabad Road}.

Immediately after purchase, I updated the purchase status on Bikeszone.com site (one of the best Indian biking site). And started learning how to ride.!!

Yes! you got it right, I didn’t knew how to ride. This was my first bike and was pretty much excited. I still remember, I used to woke up 3 o’clock in the morning so that I will have no traffic, no kids to lough.!! Two weekends morning ride and I was ready to face Delhi NCR traffic. 1st big ride was Gurgaon sec 17 to Mehrauli. wow!!

Sad though. No century yet. The maximum in a day record is 94 Kms {Mehrauli – Faridabad – Sohna – Gurgaon – Mehrauli}

After that I never stopped. First puncture was when I was passing through jungles of Aravali hills (GFR entry from Chhattarpur road) and guess what?, had to walk 6 Kms. with punctured bike! horrible!!

I haven’t changed any parts since then, everything looks perfect. However, every morning rides have become weekend ride. But then, I am happy and planning to do something toofaani someday.
