The 'Honda Big Bike' ride from Mumbai to Sula Vineyards in Nashik gave Honda superbike owners time out from their hectic schedules to enjoy a ride away from the hubbub of the city and interact with fellow bikers

There are many ways to spend a weekend; some prefer going to a serene location to unwind, others ride to alleviate themselves of the stress from everyday work life. But what if you get to experience both in a single outing…sounds interesting, eh? When I was asked to cover the ‘Super Bike Ride’ organised by Honda, I was thrilled to say the least. There were two reasons for it; first being the destination of the ride, which was Sula Vineyards in Nashik, around 185km from Mumbai. Secondly, I was ecstatic at being able to ride after a prolonged period as I hadn’t ridden much since my trip to Leh in July.

I reached the Honda New Wing World showroom by 5:30am and to my surprise most of the other riders were present at the showroom before time, which was a pleasant sign. The ‘Super bike Ride’ was a unique ride organised by Honda for its superbike owners and 25 such enthusiasts from across Mumbai had assembled with their pride and glory. We were given a briefing about the route, the various pit-stop spots and our destination. Once the briefing was over all the riders began gearing up for the ride. It was an aural Opera for a two-wheeler enthusiast as 25 Japanese in-line fours underneath the CB1000R and CBR1000RR came to life and I just savoured the moment aboard the CBR 250R, my ride for the day.
