A day full of tragedy...
Onward journey to Anchetty was nice, in dark... In Anchetty happened first tragedy - I forgot to take money, no ATM card in wallet, and I don't know PIN for credit card.. Deepsan helped me there.. 10 kms from Anchetty on the way back, got a flat... No intruders and we guessed it might be due to the hole on the tyre... Continued after changing tube, only to get the hole worsened and tube burst... Though I could have booted the tyre, patched the other tube and fix the bike and came back, laziness forced me to select other options.. Again with borrowing some money from Sandeep, got into a minidor carrying cans of concentrated (yeah, fumes) hydrochloric acid and sacks of caustic soda pellets.. Attibele to Madiwala in volvo, and a walk to home, that is how it ended.. .
Lessons learnt - Always retire the components after its suggested life / use time, main thing - check the wallet twice, may be thrice, and ensure there is some money or atleast a card which can be used

    Can relate to the no-wallet. I had a similar incident when I went 65 kms from my house on Mysore Rd, stopped at Kamat and figured out I had no wallet! And it was hungry ride back home in the Sun!
    Coming back in a van of HCl and Caustic Soda - too much! Third lesson , dont ride with chemicals please.

    Haha...still that was good tide. I remember a 220kms ride, unplanned one where I forgot to take wallet and was fully supported by RK.
