As a new year resolution, I though to bring my motor bike to Colombo to make my transportation needs easier. So I rode it all the way from Anuradhapura my home to Rajagiriya my second home here in Colombo on 31st of December 2011. It's a Bajaj CT-100 which is well-known as “පෙට්රල් සුවඳටත් දුවන එකම බයික් එක" (In English: The only bike which runs even to the smell of petrol).
I have never been on a that long ride, it took almost 5 hours for 230Km because I had to stop and take break after each 30km. And It took only 3 and half hours to get to Ja-ela and after that Traffic was terrific to eat 1 and half hours for just about 40km.
Anyway now I'm happily strolling in Colombo without wasting much time and money like before by travelling by buses and Three-wheelers. And I'm enjoying sneaking through to the front of queues of Prius, Prado, Masda and even Maruti when all these vehicles are stopped at colour lights. Yes, Bikes are the best option to travel in Colombo. Word!
