Guhagar – Goa Ride


Started out as a simple weekend biketrip, ended up something totally different but great!

Our initial plan was to ride all the way to Gokarna, a small town on the cost of Karnataka, which is roughly about 740 kilometres from Mumbai via NH4.

However, one of our friends had to ride back the next day due to unavailability of leaves at work. So, for our first pit-stop we decided to halt at Guhagar (Around 291 kms from Mumbai via NH66), a small town in Ratnagiri district in Maharashtra, known for its virgin beach, coir items, coconuts, betel nuts and mainly Alphanso mangoes.

Here we decided to stay at the MTDC affiliated Nisarg Resort, which was quite homely, calm and serene surroundings, and a lovely place to get away from the hustle-bustle of the city life.

We had a great time over some drinks, music and some witty banter. FYI, this place serves some authentic delicious Malvani thali, prawns, fish et al. So go for it.

Next morning, after breakfast, we made our way back to NH66, where our friend Akshay would make his way back to the city life and we would continue our journey to Goa!

However, Jugal faced a small technical snag with the gear pedal of his KTM Duke 390, but nothing that a small spanner couldn’t fix. After we rejoined Ravi on the main highway, we started with the madness of the twisties. And boy did our bikes handle them like pros.

One good thing about the Yamaha R15 ver 2 is that, being a track bike, it handles corners and turns phenomenally well. In-fact it is quite fun to do it, and NH66 offers an abundance of it!

Well I wouldn’t bore much with the content and let the photographs do the talking. It is GOA after all! Let’s just say, Goa is not a place, it’s a state of mind!
