This hill city is absolutely mesmerising during the rainy seasons. Perfect getaway for backpackers staying in Mumbai and Pune. Their serpentine roads are a dream ride for bikers.

KTM diaries- Late night ride for tea

7f6331cb2a8097b83ceaff84f70a0177Photostory…..Nice Monday night. I along with my friend on a late night ride on KTM Duke 200 stopped by at roadside Tea stall near Railway station.

Tea, late night ride and Bikes is an amazing experience though everyone can not subscribe to it.

For few, tea is a drink and for few, it is just part of life. You cannot resist to it.  Aroma of tea and ginger made those moments more relaxed. Although if you are living in northern India then this experience could get double. And to do so one need KULLAHAD. A small pot made of clay. It plays the different purpose in different parts of India. The Smell of clay makes sipping tea more palatable.

Only at railway station we could get tea after late night ride. But these roadside tea stalls have their own aroma and voodoo.

Tea is part of life. It kicks starts my day and also ends it too. A rainy day and riding motorcycle to nearest tea stall have its own space in my mind. It makes you relaxed and contented. And KTM is best to make my memories more memorable.

A day without tea is a day without joy.
