BRM 1200. The unfinished Ride.... Was going on strong till a point where the confusions on the route I was on and the route I was headed towards arose... Lost the buffer time of 1:20 min I had in making sure I was on right way, by the time I lost the motivation... Falling prey for the motivation loss second time after the dropped out Ranebennur 600..

Got a lift from Periya to a place 13 kms before Kalpetta, from where I rode with Ratnaveer.. Got a bus from Kalpetta to Bangalore after a good night's sleep..

The Virajpet - Periya downhill is the best part of the route.. With no hairpin bends, I used brakes very rarely except for blind turns.. I felt like, one needs to earn that downhill by reaching Virajpet in time..

Enjoyed a rainy brevet with fenders.. The B & M Luxos U - simply awesome... The spread it had, especially in the fog - amazing...

Lessons learnt - trust (ONLY) the cuesheet...
