Dilip called me, he and his group of friends and business partners needed a release from their intense business trip to Thailand. I picked them up from their hotel and took them to get kitted up at Bike Lane, with Ashok being the most experienced bike rider of the three he was straight on the bike doing doughnuts in the training area of Bike Lane Track. Vijay was slightly apprehensive as was Dilip but when we got out on the trails it all went well with the three friends taking to off road riding very quickly.
Vijay dropped the bike a few times in the soft sand, its a struggle to get through there for any beginner rider and Vijay commented that he had done no exercise whatsoever in about 10 years, that gave me a smile because considering that he was doing great.
The whole ride Ashok was very enthusiastic and kept waving and giving a thumbs up for the camera, I think he could have a place in Bollywood!?
Unfortunately I fouled the plug on my KTM and had forgotten a spare, we had to dump it on the trail and continue with Vijay riding pillion with me.
The lads were great and unfazed by anything.
It was a very smiley happy afternoon.
