Returning from BoBMC RiderMania 2016

If you have been following the BOBMC RiderMania 2016 story till now, the event was done and dusted and the only thing remaining was us returning from BoBMC RiderMania 2016.

Plenty of BOBMC RiderMania 2016 photos from the various events, pepper this page. I am not sure if the order of these pictures is perfect. After a good rest from yesterday’s ride, things are a bit hazy.

Alrighty, it is time for Rider Mania 2016! By this time next Wednesday, Rolling Thunder MC would have finished one day of riding and will be chilling out someplace in Telangana. I’m headed to BoBMC RM 2016, with the brothers from Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club. This is hosted by Wanderlust, Nagpur for this year.
