Well, that's about my companion. Now about the place. That was already decided - Vagamon in Idukki district. This place is around 160 km from my place. The road goes via Angamaly, Perumbavoor, Moovattupuzha, Pala, Erattupetta & then to Vagamon. After the first 50 km, the terrain changes slowly to hilly, and after words the road became steeper. That's when I really started loving my bike. It was really fun riding this one - I could comfortably ride in 3rd & 4th gear when I see others struggle to negotiate the steep climbs.
Since the travel was in the middle of the monsoon, most of the time it was raining heavily. I should have started early from home so that I could reach there by afternoon. But I started by 12 noon, & reached Vagamon by 5 in the evening, with lot of stops in between.
