I know you wont google it so, to give you a fair idea, Murthal is on NH1 (better known As GT Road), north of Delhi. I am sure you must have heard of Sonipat; Murthal is few KMs ahead of it.

Well, I won’t bog you down with the details of what we did and what we saw on the way except that on reaching Murthal, we had a sumptuous breakfast at “Ahuja’s No.1 Dhaba”. I guess you certainly want to know the details of the breakfast at least, don’t you? Well, so be it. It was Paranthas (of various kinds viz. Paneer, aaloo, missa, mix etc) loaded with freshly whipped cream, Dal makhni, Dahi and Lassi(specially for me. Others chose tea)

Though it was tough to start immediately after having such a heavy and sleep inducing breakfast but as they say, when it gets tough, the tough gets going. (Applause!!)
Let me issue a disclaimer before I move any further.
Disclaimer - Everything which I am narrating here is precisely how it happened and not scripted or dramatized in any way!
So, on our way back, I suddenly heard a faint whistle. On deeper inspection, I came to know that it was my tyre. I must praise my bike for its consistency; for it was third flat-tyre-weekend in a row. Bravo! Puncture shop was 2 KMs ahead. But a messiah in the guise of a Tractor-driver emerged out of the horizon to semi-resurrect my bike, the other half was completed to perfection by the mechanic!
On reaching our destination (Dhaula Kuan) at around 11:30, we celebrated the fantastic ride with a much deserved Beer. The ride tracking devices were telling that we covered a staggering distance of 113 KMs in an impressive time of 4h:58m at an Avg. speed of 23 Km/h burning a mind-boggling 4000 calories! (To give you something to compare with – an average human being needs 2000 calories in an entire day!!!)
