Ride To Kolukkamalai Tea Estate

Here are some pictures from a recent ride to the Kolukkamalai tea estate near Munnar in India. Perched at an altitude of 2,160 meters Kolukkamalai is one of the highest tea estates in the world. The trail that winds through the tea estate is in a private property and motorcycles are not allowed on it. However [...]

Beautiful Balancing Boulders Of Hampi

One of the popular landmarks in Hampi is the Sisters Stones. These are two huge boulders leaning on each other by the side of a road. The right stone had previously developed a crack . In March 2011, it finally broke into pieces. One of the pieces stayed wedged at the top. This is how the [...]

A Beautiful Lunch

One of the most memorable moments of the ride to Great White Lake in Mongolia was the lunch we had by a wooden bridge on the bank of a small river. We had been following the river for a couple of hours as it meandered through the grasslands. The sun kept playing hide and seek [...]

Chuluut Gorge In Mongolia

Mongolia has broadly three types of terrain. Towards the north there are mountains shared with Russia. The south has the Gobi desert shared with China. The middle portion is just steppes. A steppe is essentially a region that’s not wet enough to support trees and not dry enough to be called a desert. The only [...]

Mongolian Skies

I had heard a lot about the amazing Mongolian sunrises, sunsets and clear night skies, which is why I didn’t want to stay in a hotel in a city. Check out these pics of sunrises at the Great White Lake and the Khogno Khan ger camp. I’m not sure why it happens, but the breathtaking [...]

What Makes A Good Riding Road

I clicked this pic while riding through the central part of Sri Lanka. I kept hopping from one mountain to the next and from one tea estate to the next. This went on for a couple of hours and reminded me of my ride to Ladakh on my Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350. But instead of [...]

Footpeg Therapy

After I got the Triumph Tiger I’ve started talking about something called “footpeg therapy”. A couple of my non-rider friends have asked to explain this therapy to them. So I created this video. :-)

Tiger In The Village

I usually take my Royal Enfield on morning rides through sleepy Goan villages. The Duke is too jumpy and impatient and the Fat Boy feels like I’m riding a barge on narrow winding village roads. The Tiger is just a week old and I’ve already ridden more than a 1000 kms on it, mainly on [...]
