Guwahati to Dhubri - 262 kms

We,‘Bulls Of Assam’ are group of 10 ardent bikers and we are undertaking a 7000 kms long journey between Guwahati – Ladakh- Nepal and back to Guwahati. ‘The Dream Motorcycle Expedition’, as we call it, is a 25 day motorcycle ride which aims to promote tourism in the seven North Eastern states. We intend to ride on bikes as we believe that bikes are the best way to explore North East. In this eventful journey, we are thankful to have Fiama Di Wills as our partner. We are sure that with their support, this trip will be a re-energized and a rejuvenated one!!

Join us on our ride virtually as we are going to recreate it here for you all. We’ll be updating our journey and experiences in form of a photo-blog. Each day we are going to upload a day’s journey. Read it, enjoy it, get refreshed and feel free to share it.

It was the ‘D Day’ for all of us. Months of toiling and preparations had finally fructified. The night before the event we weren't even able to sleep because of the high excitement. Though there have been many sleepless nights in the past too, this one was special as it wasn’t about worries of making it possible. Instead we were sleep deprived because of the anticipation.

On the D day, lot of people came to watch us kick start the ride. There were people known and unknown to us but what was common in all of them was their love and support for us. In this pic you can see one of us interacting with the media persons.



When we say preparations, this is what we mean! A ride of 7000 kms requires it!!



The feeling of moving together, talking to air is second to none. This picture was taken on Guwahati – Dhubri highway. It was the moment when we all got the feeling of living our dream. It was the moment!!



As we lined up for the flag off, we could feel our hearts pounding in our chest. It wasn’t a race, but all of us were ready to shoot out. Finally the moment arrived- Flag off happened. We started out and on day 1 covered a distance of 262 kms.
