Its April and with the sun being unmerciful, we would settle for a short ride to unwind – about 175 kms one way from Mumbai. On 13-14th April we ride to Silvassa and stay at the Silvassa Tourism property on the banks of the Madhuban water reservoir. This ride will be very relaxing and the bonfire along with the company of Musafirs would make it a perfect weekend getaway for a biker, his machine and his better half/ close friend. This ride would be have the Musafirs coming face to face with the Lions at the Lion Safari and if conducive, we could also visit the Satmaliya Deer Park.
Assembly at Eternity mall would be at 4:45 and the ride would begin at 5.00 AM. The second assembly at Fountain Hotel on the NH8 would be at 5:45 AM.
Riding with the Musafirs requires biking discipline and punctuality. The NH8 is an open highway and the temptation to break formation and ride haphazardly is too high. But it takes real control, discipline and temperament to prove your mettle by riding in the designated straight line formation at the designated speed.
Mumbai Musafirs is NOT a Boyz-Only Riders Club. Female riders/pillions are welcome. Our female crew member – Sharmishta and numerous other female Musafirs would be there to keep company throughout the trip.
