Awesome Annual Meet ! We had 26 bikes and 28 people in all spread over 3 hotels in Tarkarli.
Following is the attendee list :
Everyone reached on 7th November to Tarkarli. Evening was spent in relaxing and good natured leg pulling. Introductions, beer and good food.
On 8th we spent most of the morning chilling around and finding a restaurant to get food in! There are dolphins in the sea off the coast, and we were fortunate enough to go out on a boat and see these magnificent creatures. The group was big enough that we took over the entire restaurant in Malvan and the proprietor had to turn away customers as there was just no space.
After lunch we were in half a mind to go for a group ride, but with the short days in winters, I was more concerned about getting a group photo done. So, we scouted around for a good place to take the pics. It turned out that the beach on low tide in front of one of the hotels - Rosary Paradise - was quite firm to take the pics. Once figured out, we all took our bikes down on the beach and lined them up. Navendu was the official photographer - though everyone was out there with their cameras - even the local populace !
In the evening we had the talks. More of that later at the end of the post.
9th morning everyone split off and focused on getting home.
All in all, a very successful and fun meet. Here’s to all the people who were able to make it to the meet. A very huge thank you to Rohit Parik for doing most of the grunt work in arranging the acco, etc.
Trauma Management - Dr Sanket Kawli
It kicked off with Dr Sanket Kawli giving a brief on what he is trying to do with the Trauma Management Workshop. We had a discussion about how to get it into corporates or societies. Key points to note here are:
Long distance Riding - Navendu Singh
Following this we had a talk by Navendu on long distance riding. It was a very enlightening experience for most of us for that 1 hour of talk and discussion on how to maintain the bike, the spares to keep, packing clothes and riding techniques. I believe even veteran riders got to learn a few new tricks!
BN updates - Vibhu Rishi, Rohit Parik
The last talk was about BN and given by Vibhu and supported by Rohit. Some salient points:
All in all, it was a fantastic meet. Lets target getting 100 people together in the next AM.
Truly, I enjoyed this AM more than any.. Lesser Distractions, More Group Time.
Short and Simple, but still fulfilling.. and Funfilling too..
Cheers to the Next AM..
