My Get away to Srisailam..


It was a while since i went on a get away..was allways avoiding as i was caught up with zillion comitments..and was raring to Get on and Get away....

I spoke to Ram my only friend since 2nd class, dont know how i managed not to loose contact with him though..But anyway , we just descided a day

before...besides i had enough of the Hyderabad summers and had to Get away and Reclaim my life......I belive you can Only feel Freedom on two wheels with the Wind on your face...Especialy whn you own a T'bird , i'm shure u know what i mean by Living your wild side..!! ;)

A day before i had planned got some Oil for the gearbox and the Oil sump..filled e'm up and always had a feeling of insecurity coz my bike needed a service , the engine had a slugish feeling , but when i have to Hit the road i really have to....

Woke up @ 5am on the 8th June 07 got ready and went over to Rams place to pick him up ..he had got a few cans of Red bull. I knew we wud need some to beat the stress.. ;)

Filled up the Tank with Gas and Hit the Road @ 7 ....

It was a smooth ride until i realised after about 70 odd km i had oil all over me..my typres ..oil..oil.. every whr.. Stoped by to check and it was the connecting pipe from the oil sump...so quickly cut out the part that was leaking and fixed the other end to it checked for any air locks in the pipe , but luckily none ....HIT the road agagin and then on it was No stoping ...we were hitting a steady speeed of 90 and 100 kmph..Wind on my Face and i had forgotten all my Problems ..my mind was blank ...absolutely no thoughts no strings pulling out of my head..it was Just the wind talking ......N' the weather was Brilliant...at about 12 pm..we stoped over at dindi near the dam and had some idlis to eat and later within no time Hit the ghat road..no body on the road except for a few ferocious monkeys looking to grab any eatables that they could find..

1:30pm we were at srisailam..the only disapoint ment , no water the gates to the dam were closed as well ....

But the ride was wat we had relished..we got to the Hotel later then had a fullfilling Lunch..

We visited the main temple - the Brahmarambha Mallikarjuna Swamy temple.

Then Hit the sack. and didnt knw wat hit me , by the time i woke up it was 10:30...so our plan to start back early was all over.... finished our lunch and by the time we started our journey back it was 3..and on our way down the ghat road Ram wanted to go boating , i cudnt say no But had to give in and more over the clouds were starting to gather up and look mean and i knew it was going to be a tough ride in Bad wether ...But thn I was living for the moment and Went Jumped in to the river.. ;)

We went rite in to the river stream on our round boats ...it was fun the overcast and the winds were pushing our boats and gently mother nature was rowing us

to the shore.. Besides it was a good idea to stop by at patal ganga..as they like to call it ..

then we started our journey back to hyderabad it was 5:30.... and on our way it was thrilling the winds were blowing us of the road..and thunder in the

skyes..and at one time i thought we were lucky coz the tree beside us was struck by that high Jolt of Lightning and fell down to the ground..

It started to poor down like cats and Dogs...Brilliant i never thought it wud be my frst showers of Monsoon in the middle of No where...

we had to stop by coz the weather had got'n really bad..but it was'nt for Loong and started to roll again.


Glad there wasnt much trafic on the road ..and didnt have to dodge the volvos and the truks at night and after a Loong Tough Slushy ride we finaly entered Hyderabad at 10:30 and were back to civilization and saw motorists trying to over take each other though array roots and cut across the road like they did have a care in the world....thats when it thought ..Wer back to Our Hyderabad.. later stoped by at paradise andate two biryanis each.. We were Famished !!! It was a great feeling ....A Feeling When a MAN GETS Exactly What he Desires...WOW....Its Bin a while

Since i had that Feeling.. :)

later droped off ram at his place and got home by 1 am ..It was one hell of a ride ...not to mention i was still Buzz'ng , took me a while to get over the long ride..

Cheers N' Ride Safe...
