5 tips that will surely save your money while booking a hotel

Here is a compilation of some tips to save a few bucks on booking accommodations in hotel/Dharamshala/Dormitory or wherever you go. Please feel free to share your experience, I will be glad to include that here. Early booking saves a lot This is the best and simplest way to save your money on accommodation.

motorcycle spares and toolkit essential for bike ride

A motorcycle tool kit to save you from breakdown horror

So you have been continuously hitting numerous sites in search of a perfect list of motorcycle tool kit for your long trips. But like me, you too returned confused and disappointed. Wouldn’t it be a horrible scene that you are riding in a remote land and your motorcycle tyre gets a puncture or the bike refuses to start? Riders have a wonderful habit of ignoring the toolkits unless they face a breakdown. We live under the conception that baby tools under the bike seat will do the job. Frankly speaking, at best they can be used for removing a spark plug and tightening up rear view mirror screws. Now, don’t come to me and fight for the value of baby tools. How dare you to speak about the baby tools, don’t speak if you know nothing 😀 Long distance motorcycle touring is not a joke. Any moment can change into a life-threatening scene. But carrying everything mentioned on different sites is plainly not feasible. We all want our luggage to be as light as possible. That is the reason, I …

Packing Tips: How To Pack The Right Way

Every person has a desire to travel paths less trodden. Somehow, this poem from Lord of the Rings starts to ring every time we talk about National Parks: The road goes ever on and on Down from the door where it began Now far ahead the Road has gone, And I must follow, if I can… Although, the movie was actually shot in New Zealand, we have some truly beautiful trails here in the US as well. Large lakes like the Yellowstone Lake, which is situated at 7700 feet above the sea level and even the largest tree in the world, all exist in the US. Alas, very few people truly take benefit of these natural wonders. We highly recommend camping at the Yellowstone Lake. Just spending some time away from the toxic city life can actually bring about a beautiful change in a person. On the other hand, Sequoia National Park is perfect for some tree gazing.. The General Sherman Tree can be accessed by a short hike from through the Sherman Tree Trail. …

Normal tyre pressure for motorcycle

Why tyre pressure is important for motorcycle riders

Tyre pressures are the most important check that is plainly ignored when it comes to motorcycling. Do you remember when did you check your tyre pressure consciously? Do you know what should be the normal pressure of rear and front tyres of your motorcycle? A lesser or over-inflated tyre does not only risk your motorcycle but can also be fatal to your life. But no worries! We will go through the bare minimum that every bike rider should be aware of, particularly the long distance tourers.   Considering the fact that the whole motorcycle runs on tyres, it makes extremely important to gauge the health of tyres timely. A less/over inflated tyre may reduce the handling capability and loss of traction and in some cases bursting of tyres.

The 165 km stretch from Greater Noida to Agra is certainly one of the best roads …
