Well, I have had the Benelli Imperiale 400 as my long-term companion for a good six months now. And in these 180 odd days, the Imperiale and I have mostly sifted through the streets of Mumbai, spent the majority of the time on the famous Palm Beach road, and did a couple of intra-city trips to Pune.
But 200kms is the maximum one-way distance the Benelli Imperiale 400 had seen. It was nearing the end of its tenure in the BikeWale Long Term fleet and I wanted to ride it for a longer distance before handing it back.
So, just like most other memorable road trips, my road trip with the Benelli Imperiale 400 was (mostly) unplanned. With just the thought of spending the weekend in Goa and a backpack with the essentials, I left home before the break of dawn.
