Ride to the NorthCape

TimeCapsule – 2015 – To the very far ends and the corners of this planet.. I thought it might be one of the lovely lone experiences but it was tarnished by the hundreds of tourists that land on this spot loaded in buses like the cattle going to the free slaughter pilgrimage (Apologies for the pun too, if it sounds too harsh but that was my personal thoughts).

On one hand, It was quite an amazing ride when I come to think of it but not an experience I would like to share about the actual NordKapp visitor center. Hundreds of tourists filled inside the shop and cafetaria like this is all they came here for. I would have preffered to stick to the very wild north but the weather was pretty cold for summer equinox and forced me to battle through the rainy downpours.

Thanks to all those who helped and also to those, who didn’t. It all makes a worthy experience in the end.

A slow and nice one to enjoy the curves of Norwegian North(without touching the brakes)

Will I ride there again, quite definitely yes but not to the very NorthCape but the likes of bordering northern islands. I loved the isolation of 98 instead. No videos but you would enjoy the Wilderness and the freezing rain\wind and awesomeness of no one for miles.

Going North

This would be my first time when I would be riding to meet a friend who I have known from past more than six or even may be seven years and have met few times. Michael is a good friend whom I met on my Flickr about almost seven years ago. The story behind all this is pretty simple,  I have been a travel head and solo motorcycle rider. That shall explain you what kind of common interests we may have. So the idea behind us coming together would just be to sit, talk, share and do some flying flipping jumps up and down the Peak District if the weather permits us to enjoy that. Else we shall still have a plenty to yap about and possibly swap our motorcycles. I must admit, I love riding all the kind of motorcycles and the one he has is a Triumph Tiger which makes me feel that spirit of adrenalin rush on the rough stretches of the road.

Ah, boys would be boys. So I would be riding a non stop about 3hrs to head from London to Sheffield and then the rest as it happens shall be shared brought to you over a period of time. I got to say this is going to be pretty crazy as he is good with this flying and I am good with my sharp shooting skills.

UK looks so small given I have been up and down this country so many times by now. Although Just to give you a rough idea of how far … here you go

Now lets go a bit of South 🙂

more south

A little bit to the North again, North west this time .. Lake District & Yorkshire Dales.

Ah.. the list is pretty much endless because I can go posting here but the point is … “Travel is essence to see, smell, feel and capture” – MB.

But did I not say, world is small.. It indeed is..  as far as you want and farther you can go …  Ride

Reason – Why !

WHY NOT !!
When you are happy you do not have to reason it. Sometimes it is just about how you make your little moments of life keep you alive, make you smile and make you feel what you feel. Why do we need to deflate our feelings because of others and why should we not live how we want to live. For everything around you that belongs to you and is a part of you is a reason for you to be happy.

All this inspired by my naughtiness for collecting miles as I endlessly chat with myself, write stories, write poems and indulge in thoughts but the minute I get off from the ride – It is all gone. Hence there is a reason which keeps me alive.

So share what you have and share what you want to. It is yours and you should be happy whether others do or don’t.
