the BAY OF BENGAL Trip; happy ending

(29th June, 2010)

Huhhh :(…. the hugely anticipated trip was coming to an end very fast as our Racing Instincts took over and we almost flied back to Kolkata on our mini R1s. The road between Kolkata-Contai is really amazing especially after Kolaghat when the 4-lane highway just pushes your throttle further. We stopped for a cold drink break at our favourite Sher-e-punjab dhaba at kolaghat, but other than that it was just a high performance ride, covering 198km in 3:10hrs. We reached Kalyani at around 2pm. All throughout this return journey I kept on wondering where I’m heading next. The Bay of Bengal Trip had ended; the last goodbye wasn’t good at all.
