Royal Enfield Rider Mania 2015′ GOA
All Rider’s assembled at the start point by 3:30 am and we had a small brief and we started the journey to the Rider’s meet, our target to reach Goa was by 6pm atleast. Rains in Bangalore had not stopped and all Rider’s were geared up with Rain suits and riding… we had too many groups riding to GOA for this event….i guess the crowd was approximately 6k. We all started the ride at 4am from the Nice Exit and planned stop was near Sira for coffee break. On the way we were overtaking one of the groups and our rider was lost between them with a breakdown due to bad quality of wiring by Royal Enfield. We stopped near the Sira Toll to check if all are in the group and we get a call from one of our rider saying his bike is not starting and was around 20kms behind us. 2 of us from the group went back searching and the remaining rider’s headed towards the breakfast point in Chitradurga. We found the Rider 20kms away we tried replacing the fuse but it was blowing off. We short the fuse and started heading the bike to breakfast point. Some how we reached Chitradurga and we had the same issue again. we found a wire was cut below the tank. so fixed the issue had breakfast and headed to the destination and the rain was not stopping at all. We stopped for lunch near Hubli and the the clouds were clear and we had lunch. We headed via the Charla ghats which was really an awesome experience on the roads weather and the scenic views around and finally we reached Goa and all were so tired and just wanted to hit the bed after dinner.
Day 2 (20-11-2015):
We all woke up got freshened and headed to Vagator to venue and few Rider’s had already gone to get the bike’s fixed. We as an IBR Group wanted to give a grand entry and decided we will meet before the venue line up wearing IBR T_shirts and go honking the way we did it in Bulletiappa….So called back all the Rider’s and we did the grand entry though everyone was irritated with the honking we still did it and parked the bikes in the venue.
We had 2 of our friend’s who had to return back to Bangalore and they headed early in the morning at 8am, we had breakfast with them and send off. Then later we all freshened and got ready to ride out for sight seeing and to spend some awesome time near the beaches. We headed first to sight the Dolphins and then we rode to see the place Fort Agoda and did some awesome photography and we headed to Calangute beach to have lunch and spend some time with the group as we had to return the next day all were sober and just were roaming around and returned back to the hotel to pack the luggage all returned by around 11:30pm and slept to get up early in the morning.
