Review: Hero Maestro Edge

It is just 20 days into the new year (2017) and I have already completed one trip to Goa, courtesy my friend Vikram for his destination wedding. This time, I didn’t have much time to explore Goa on a bike, rather I (and Ankit) were going to travel with our luggage after the ‘sponsored’ stay at […]

Day 6 : Kollam to Thekkady (160 km)

<<Day 5: Rameshwaram – Kanyakumari – Kollam (464 Km) At KTDC Tamrind Kollam, we woke up to a spectacular view of the lake from our hotel window. After visiting Kanyakumari yesterday and riding for 460 km, we were in a mood to take it easy today. Today’s destination was Thekkady that was 160 km away. It sounded like […]

LED lights for Motorcycle

The headlights of my Karizma are pretty useless on the highways and in the Ghats (This is probably true for most of the bikes). I realised this during the Kanyakumari trip and I was determined to do something about it as soon as I returned back to Pune. At first, I was excited to the […]

Fixing The Fibre Parts

Review : Indian Oil Citibank Credit Card

The demonetization move has surely surprised all of us Indians living in India and abroad, hasn’t it ? In this time, the cash has literally died for now and the cards and online wallets are doing exceptionally great. Only few might have imagined this scenario. When I started working around 7 years back, thanks to […]

Brakes gone bad !

Brakes Gone Bad

Brakes are an integral part of any vehicle, be it the humble cycle or the speeding Formula 1 race car. Brakes have to be as effective as the engine of the vehicle. Brakes are supposed to do one thing, stop the moving vehicle in the manner the rider/driver desires to. You don’t want the brakes of […]

Review: DSG Phoenix Waterproof Jacket: Red [TXCJ014R]

After making the first purchase of DSG MotoMesh Gloves, I was on look out for a good riding jacket. Starting with Google research, followed by multiple visits to the DSG store and after trying out their multiple jackets, I made the decision to buy the DSG Phoenix Waterproof Jacket. It has been 2 years and 20,000 km […]

Long Ride v/s Long Drive

Last Saturday I took a trip on the same route to and fro as I did on my bike over a month ago . It is surprising to witness the change in the experience between a car drive and a bike ride on the same route. Similar to the bike trip, I started my solo […]
