I don’t now how we came up with this plan. But I guess its one of those *30year* beer celebration sessions, I pitched a plan to travel by Himsagar Express, from Kanyakumari to Kashmir. Nothing but just train travel and then return back. For a friend of mine Sandeep that sounded weird. He pitched why not carry bikes along in train and ride it back to Bangalore. To my surprise all of us agreed. Next day all four confirmed too :)
Next few days were hard-core travel discussions at Alliance Francaise with lots and lots of black coffee. At last with Anand’s help we had a new destination Rohtang Pass and we will end our ride in Bangalore. I named the ride as #3kfor30.
Soon booked rail tickets, shipped bikes through a shipping company, got biking gears etc. I was still in shock. I couldn’t believe what was happening. I thought it was a dream. It can’t be so easy. But then reality hit me when the ride was just a week away. I had signed up my 125cc Yamaha to do 3000kms. I have never ridden it in mountains or more than 1000kms in one trip. And the biggest problem was I have not ridden a motorcycle in last six months!
