Vin’s Mang/Udupi escapade: Part 1…

22Oct09 : Initiation

Me in office, working on my iMac and suddenly my cell blinks “1 Message received”, I just read that message and it was from Vinay(my great friend, my ex-roomie, works for Toyota… 😉 blah blah)…

“Dude, what If I come down to Udupi this weekend..?? Are you free…?”

“Fucking shit dude, you come down anytime here… Anyhow on Friday  night there is “Blaze” battle of bands in manipal where eXiled will perform”, I replied…

Now I forgot my project, issues and other stuff and waited for Vinay’s reply… then got a reply from Vin… “Dude, got a leave on friday so leaving tonight to Udupi”…

Aila, I couldn’t believe this for a min as Vin(nick name for Vinay Pateel) coming down here… then I got fucking excited as it is Vin who is coming down… I know the weekend gonna be hell and mailed my friends in office bout Vin…

One of them immediately replied, “Let’s book a table in Downtown on sat”… Thats call an attitude

Later Vin made sure he will book ticket for Thursday night bus to Udupi… He also mentioned his health is bad due to B shifts and traveling… So I was ready to receive him here for friday morning and I started my work again…

Out of a sudden he messages me… “Dude I’m coming down via bike(he has RX 135…) will leave early morning is that fine..??” I told him to book a ticket as roads are not proper, even Doc Pradeep(Vin’s friend who stays in Mangalore) told Vin to come bus…

But as usual, Vin will follows his heart(Fuck you motorheart)… Vin dint get convinced and he was ready to come down via bike… Later at night I told my roomies bout Vin and slept thinking bout Vin’s ride to Udupi… Continue reading “Vin’s Mang/Udupi escapade: Part 1…”

Vin’s Mang/Udupi escapade: Part 1…

My 2009 Yamaha R1…

I was waiting for the weekend, there were many reasons to wait.

1. I got my Alpine Star racing suit from Pune last week.

2. Due to RAINS in Udupi I couldn’t get time to go for a spin with my R1.

3. By giving BUILDS and BUILDS my brain was occupied with BUILDS. Again BUILDS.

Finally the much desired weekend came, I and my friend had planned to go for a long drive on my R1. We decided to touch Bekal fort, Kasargod and come back by evening if possible a movie or ice cream or something in Mangalore.

I still remember the day I got my 2009 white and red Yamaha R1. Dad was not happy for taking a litre class bike or 1000 c.c bike, as he knows there are no proper roads  and safety. Even though we are careful while riding, you cant predict bout other people’s ride.

But as usual I went for it.

For me R1, was like a dream. I used to play with R1 miniatures and started to collect the die cast models as many as possible, my mind was running with R1 every-time and that craze (remember college craze for bikes and girls…?? ). Ya, girls… Damn it…

And then one day I saw it in real, it was in Bengaluru. A guy riding a 06 Black R1 zipped past me, I went crazy, I was numb for a sec. It looked cool and the sound I still mesmerize that. During that moment I realized I was missing something in my life.

Not girl, not aggregate, not job, not money… It was an R1Continue reading “My 2009 Yamaha R1…”
