Hi, I'm soundar. I'm working in pune for last 2 yrs, These 2 yrs my bike (Suzuki fixed sf) was in my hometown (near salem). I wanted my bike to be with me. I tried to get my bike through parcel service or train. Price vise private parcel service asking for Rs.7k & train around Rs.4k. I'm not convinced abt safety in train parcel service. So, I dropped my plans.
I don't have confidence to ride 1200 kms alone from my home. Up to march 2019 I'm in oscillation, then i decided to ride 1200 kms alone. I planed to ride 2 days (17 may & 18 may). I serviced my bike 1 week before & i attached mobile charger to bike battery. All set everything is ready.
16th may night i got little fear, so I changed my plan to (18 may & 19 may). I not slept properly in 17th night also, only one thing going on my mind if I keep on changing my decisions i can't do anything in my life. I sticked with my plans this time.
18th may morning 3:45 am started my ride, i taken a few clicks on road & started riding. I stopped at 150kms (dharmapuri) for tea & shared my live location to 3 friends. At 8 am i reached electronic city (bangalore) & i started a map to catch NH48 Mumbai highway. Google map made me to roam hear & there in bangalore city. Finally i got NH48, Roads r gud, 3 lane, i started riding in 100+ km/hr. And I know this is going to be a long ride, it will test ur mental strength & patience. I planned for 600 kms per day. Climate is hot, I had covered my hand with full sleeve & gloves to avoid sun burn. Started to keep on riding, i hav not seen anything new, i got bored after reaching 300kms & stop in hotel sai palace for lunch. Nothing was there to eat, i eat 1 set poori & taken 1 hr for rest. I started feeling the pain in my hands & neck but still I have to go another 300kms to complete my per day task. At 1'o clock again started riding, so many take diversion , for few kms roads are not gud so I reduced my speed to 70 kms/hr. And where ever I'm seeing the petrol station i fill the tank for safety. I reached 600kms at evening 6'o clock, i stopped 100 kms before dharwad (karnataka) & started searching for hotel. I found 1 hotel near to NH48, went there taken a room & slept. I not even wake up for the dinner.
