    Ever since I was back from Singapore, the biker in me constantly pushing me to take the bike and get lost into the Sahyadris in the mesmerizing mansoon.
    But GOD's not happy with that and In an unfortunate even I fractured my leg the year I landed.
    Luckily it was not so serious but serious enough to scare my wife and parents that I got complete restriction to take my ride out.
    Its just since last year I slowly started taking bike out (not exceeding 10-15kms)

    The same itch started again this year, but was tired waiting for the monsoon.
    The feeling of riding got very strong when in our office whatsapp group someone sent this pictures.

    On the same day initiated a plan to ride. After lot of discussion and brainstorming got a permission from wife :twisted:

    The date is fixed, it is a weekend of 2nd Aug, a day before Friendship Day as a perfect Day for the Ride.
    We all decided to meet at Chandani chowk at 8AM as we were instructed to return by 3pm as one of the US Manager was visiting Pune to meet us :-(

    2nd Aug 2014

    That night I could not sleep out of excitement, was trying to recall all the previous monsoon rides!!
    Dont know when I slipped into sweet sleep, realized that I slept only when the alarm rang at 6AM.

    Just peeped from the window, seemed like it wasnt raining :thumbs down little disappointed.
    By the time I finished all my morning tasks it started drizzling :hijacked
    Now again the confusion started whether to take my camera in the rain or not. If I don't capture these beautiful moments then how will I live this life again?
    I just said, hell with the rain and hell with the camera, will protect if I need to when rains, but will definitely not going regret if there is no rain.
    Took two plastic covers and a towel to protect it.

    Got ready and Started from home 7:30. Filled the tank at HP Hinjewadi and started slowly towards Chandani Chowk.
    It was my first long ride after 8 years. I was not at all confidant of riding fast, and was cruising at 40-50 speed.

    Most of them were there by 8:30am, but one got late and arrived only by 9am.
    Finally we started our wonderful journey at 9am.

    That's all... rest all is sweet memories.
    Let the picture tell you the rest of the story....

    After a good 50KMS ride, everybody was hungry and there were not many options further we wanted to eat as much as we can here :)

    Wonderful and very famous Tamhini Waterfall!!
    When we reached the waterfall force was not much, after a 5mins of heavy pour the force increased to an extent that no one dared to go in the center.

    A smoking hot "Butta (Sweet Corn)" was irresistible after a 30mins of natural shower cum massage.

    Once we started towards Lonavla, the rain got think and heavy, it didnt gave a single chance to open my camera.
    But we had Sony XPERIA water proof. Which did a wonderful video shooting!
