Hyosung Hy Ryders get revving
Riding along the spread out NH4 highway connecting the bustling city of Mumbai to the laidback Pune town is always a great way to unwind from the daily desk routine. So when the opportunity to ride the recently launched Hyosung GT250R on the NH4 came my way, I jumped and seized it before my colleagues Varad or Ravi could react. Well usually I am the slow one, but on such occasions, it’s smart to be a bit quicker as I see it.
So the idea was to bring Hyosung owners from Mumbai and Pune together at the midway point of Khopoli giving the bikers a chance to meet and share their biking stories on a lovely wintery Sunday at a forest setting location.
The ride consisted of two groups; one from Mumbai and the other from Pune and the venue for the event was Nature Trail resort in Khopoli. The starting point for the Mumbai group was RBI colony in Chembur and the riders were asked to reach the venue by 7am.
Around 40 enthusiastic riders on various bikes from the Hyosung line-up like the GT-650R, 250R and ST7 had gathered at the venue, where they were briefed about the rules and regulations as well as the route map to be followed. The ride was flagged off at 8am from Mumbai, with a car escorting the group to maintain the speed limit of 80km/h.
