Revisited Haywards 5000 (Strong Indian Beer) after ages on Thursday evening. Yes, the weekend came in early with the gang assembling at my house fondly known as the Adda (Headquarters). Finished friday work and moved into the weekend celebrations with alcohol and good food. Then came the Saturday morning bike ride which was past Worli and Nariman Point; there was a brief staredown between me and a Siberien Huskie as you can see in the picture. Also on Saturday and Sundays, there are skating classes for kids where in parents block a certain aspect of Nariman Point & kids race around there which seems like a lot of fun! Then took Mihir to Hanging Gardens through Walkeshwar. Most of the day was spent drinking Carona and watching movies!
After watching the trailer of Expendables 2 and in our drunk frenzy we decided to watch the Expendables – it was too much fun watching the crazy action & awesome dialogues in the movie. 300 & Expendebles are a must watch if you are hammered…the experiance is unmatched. Post watching the movie and seeing iconic scenes like Micky Rourke riding a bike, I did some R & D on the movie & realised the movie has some crazy bikes (we will be doing an entire post on the same soon); some interesting bike facts around the movie, The motorcycle that Jason Statham’s character, Lee Christmas, is riding is the Italian made street legal MotoGP race inspired Ducati Desmosedici RR. This sport-bike carries a price tag of $75,000, has a top speed of 190+ mph (305 km/h). This 989cc 4 cylinder produces 200hp while only weighing 377 pounds (171 kg). Of the only 1,500 made, 500 made it to the U.S. and they all sold out within five hours. Tom Cruise was the lucky recipient to receive the first one imported to the U.S. Evening on Saturday was spent eating the yummiest burittos ever made by the Mrs. …totally bad ass!!!
Sunday morning began with a bike ride past Apollo Bunder & the legendary Gateway of India; the sites & sounds here were amazing considering you have the Taj hotel and the sea at a stretch of an arm’s distance; also the view from the edge of the footpath is brilliant.
Spent most part of the ride with the bike parked and glaring at the view, then headed to Nariman point to see kids skate and then back. Went to Moshe’s for brunch where the discussion centered around how good The Avengers movie is & the brilliance of the plot, characters, script, dialogue, etc. Got back, decided to watch Mark Whalberg’s Contraband which was a decently exciting movie, passed out for a bit, then woke up to some exciting Grey Goose Popsicles which were made by Yooti (sister in law) & the Moto GP Portual leg.
Post dinner, lazed watched Super Natural, ate Kaluha flavored chocolate dessert again courtesy Yooti which was the perfect end to the superb weekend!
