I got the Bullet Electra serviced the previous Friday evening and was raring to go out. The coming weekend was the planned day. As I woke up the morning next, I could not wait, Saturday, the 28th of June 2014 it would be then . I fired up the Google Maps Engine and prepared the map of the route I was going to take. Me and Jyothi headed to Adigas 8th Block for breakfast. After breakfast, Jyothi headed for work and I headed south on Kanakapura Road. The picture below shows the planned route and the executed route overlayed, again using the Google Maps Engine.
It was an awesome ride, the weather was mostly overcast, a little wind and occasional sunshine – just perfect for the ride. One strange thing I noticed was the number of butterflies on the move. It is that season, just after a couple of rains, the butterflies migrate. At times, the flying butterflies were a problem because it hit the visor of my helmet. It is very difficult to avoid the hit without losing your concentration on the road. It is a beautiful sight though, I must confess. Most of the ride was on the country roads, entertaining you with beautiful sceneries on either side. Some pictures from the ride below.
All pictures shot on my Samsung Galaxy S II with lots of dust on the sensor, as can be obviously seen in the pictures. Please bear with the same.
