22/12/2007 - Tidbits

Everything is finally planned and ready, our Pondy trip is on. Also there is something really special about tomorrow, the date Dec 23. Exactly one has has passed since my ride to Ooty-Bangalore starting on 23rd Dec 2006. That was my first biking trip, the first time i did more than 100 Kms on a bike, and straightaway it was a 1300 Km trip for me. I think every biking enthusiast will remember his first ride forever, and as a one year anniversary gift to myself i'm getting to ride to Pondy with my friends tomorrow.

I really hope the ride goes as planned without any hitches, we definitely don't want something like this to happen. I'll be posting a detailed trip log as soon as i get back tomorrow, and with my new found interest in blogging, i find the trip log part equally interesting as the ride . And we'll try to get some good quality pics this time around.

For now the plans are ;

Meetup at Karthik's place at 6.30 am.

Riders: Vijay, Balakrishnan, Krishna Prasad, Karthikeyan, Vamsi,Srikanth and Me

Rides: HH Cbz, Yamaha Libero, Honda Activa, Honda Dio

Angel, Srini and GSK had to drop out at the last moment due to various reasons, too bad they'll not be able to join us on this ride. Maybe next time around we'll have a bigger number on our ride.

Also tomorrow is the counting day in Gujarat, i wish i could stay at home and watch the drama unfold on TV. Poll results are always fun. I really wish NM would lose, but i know that is highly unlikely. And by the time we get back tomorrow the fate of Gujarat for the next 5 years will be known.

Also watched the movie ' Good Night and Good Luck' today. Pretty good.

Plot - The movie is set in the 1950's and follows the clash between a CBS reporter Edward.R.Murrow and Senator Joseph McCarthy over the Senator's anti-communalist actions, one of the very first incidences of media dissent against the government, it might be common right now for the news channels to take on the govt. but this story is about the guy who started it all. Pretty good movie. Starring David Strathairn and George Clooney. Worth watching ..
