From the Land of Lama

I’ve been to Ladakh on a few occasions earlier, but somehow every-time I go there, I discover something new, something exciting, something which I’ve never discovered on my earlier trips. And generally, I prefer driving to Ladakh instead of just comfortably taking a flight and landing in Leh. Driving/ ridng to the place makes you see a myriad of things and makes you experience a lot. You get to see different places, you get to meet new people on your way (and hopefully make friends), and ofcourse, you get to do it all at your own leisure.

Well, this post isn’t really the travelogue so to speak, but more of a prologue to what is to come – a proper full-blown travelogue and photographs about Ladakh and ofcourse the short travel film about #Ladakh which I’m editing as I type this. That would take about 2 more weeks to complete; till then, I would like you all to look through these few pictures and a small video which I managed to film, and is dedicated to the friends that I’ve lost.

The following are just a few pictures which I wanted to share. The rest shall be shared with the travel-story, and also IN the film that I’m editing right now. 🙂 Till then, please enjoy these.

The roads that have been cut through the barren landscapes

The gorgeous landscapes that adorn the entire region

The tributary of Zanskar river flows through...

I met a lot of motorcyclists traversing through the region during this trip. And I managed to photograph one such amazing group on their Triumph Tigers and BMW R1200s

The sun setting behind the beautiful Himalayas

We are just a speck in this huge Universe...

Torque of the town – Big Boy Toyz Gurgaon Showroom

Text & Photos: Bobby Roy

 

When it comes to luxury cars, supercars and the likes, we, the Indian public have got choices, many choices to choose from. If you have the moolah, the brands are here to offer you a super-luxury vehicle tailor-made to your specific requirements.

Now, Big Boy Toyz, a name synonymous with luxury car brands has launched India’s biggest exotic car showroom in Gurgaon recently, and we were there to cover the entire extravaganza, and what an absolute treat it was! This newest (and biggest, mind you!) showroom is a 4-storey one and is located in the Millennium City, Gurgaon. But, apart from the massive size of the showroom, what’s special is that this 36,000 sq-feet multi-storey showroom has a display capacity of well over a 100 luxury cars, with a dedicated Motor-Bar Express and a Work of the art luxury suite to cater to clients from all across the country.

It is important to note that BBT does not deal in cars older than 2012 and done not more than 25,000kms., strictly non-accidental, non-refurbished cars and non-meter tempered cars. Also, it is good to know that each car that they sell has to go through 151 quality control checks which is really comprehensive & stringent pre-procurement checklist. If you are worried about the warranty that these cars offer, well, you can relax as these come with a 15,000kms. warranty and 1-year buy-back agreement. Now, that is a deal which hardly any other so called ‘re-seller’ would provide you with!

Now, if I can be liberal enough to talk about the party that happened; it wasn’t your usual run of the mill affair. With dignitaries & celebrities like Indian Hockey team captain, Mr. Sardar Singh, Mr.Rahul Mahajan, Ms.Neha Dhupia, Mr.Karan Kundra, VJ Anusha, VJ Gaelyn, Deep Money, music director, Harris Jayraj and many more gracing the event, it was an evening to remember. And thanks to Mr.Rohit Nagpal, head, brand & marketing at BBT for inviting me, I was one of the few lucky ones to have been present on this happening evening. I think, I must let these pictures do all the talking.

An evening to remember!

Essentially, with the launch of this showroom, which, undoubtedly is the largest showroom of luxury cars this country has ever seen, Big Boy Toyz is the ultimate haven for automotive enthusiasts looking for performance, style, luxury & beauty. And one just needs to be there at the showroom to actually believe these words!

I am not that big a fan of twin-cylinder motorcycles, but the BMW R1200R was a different breed altogether. Read the entire review to know exactly what I mean – Pure, Retro Madness – BMW R1200R!
