SPEED O METER - 5TH YEAR ANNIVERSARY

It all started 5 years back when 1st trip was to Yanna (KARNATAKA). 2nd year was to Kohi (KERALA). I was scared to drive bike in highway for long distance, so I said no to join them.
But my friend convinced me for the 3rd year biking and I joined them with my TVS VICTORY 150CC. Now I am crazy on bike riding.
I am on my 3rd year trip with Speed O Meter on 5th year Anniversary with my new bike Dominar 400. Yes it's special for us, so we choose best place to enjoy and that's is GOA.
OUR destination is GOA this year but we choose a little long route to enjoy the bike ride.
Below is our itinerary for this trip :

Day  1 on 22/12/18
We all started at 6:30 from Bengaluru. We usually drive continually for 100km and then take a short break.
A small coffee break at Sira toll around 9am. Then we reached Davengere by 11:30 to have a delicious yummy "Davengere Bene Dose" at "Sri Guru Kottureshwara Butter Dosa Hotel". Do visit this hotel for having a tasty dose.
We took break at every 100km and reach Belgaum at 5:30 and took another 30min to reach our hotel.
On day 1 we rode totally 580km in 12hrs. With ample break time.

Day 2

Day 2 - 24/12/18.
We ride from Belgaum to Goa via Ambolie  Ghat. We started at 9:30am and took a break in Amobile before we enter the ghat.
Through  Ambolie  we reached the "TEREKHOL FORT" at 2:00 and had our lunch.
Fort is maintained very well and had lunch at    Heritage hotel which was not so expensive as we expected.
After lunch we checked for ferry to reach Goa early but it was closed.  So we needed to take the road ways which took us 1hrs 30min to cover 36km.
Finally we reached Goa at 5:30pm and perfect place to enjoy our 5th year Anniversary Biking.

Day 3

Day 3 - 25/12/18
It was Christmas Day and relaxing day for us.
No biking enjoying Goa with food,  drinks and visiting places.
I did my running practice totally 18km. From my hotel to Aguada Fort it is 9km and since it was less traffic felt nice to run. Spent time alone as sun was rising behind the fort nice place to sit and hear the sea shore noise and came back.
Later we visited Arambol Beach and Arambol lake near the beach which has sweet water where  we can swim without any hesitation as it is not so deep when we visited
Spent entire day in the same beach after sunset we left.  While coming back we played football in the beach with local boy who were playing at the beach.
Drink with rock music we preferred "GURU BAR GOA", Nice place hangout at night.
Since night is young in Goa we went to "De Baga Deck" for Dinner.  This restaurant is open 24*7 with Bolly Wood music.

Hi Koushik, your blog is very descriptive & highly enjoyable. While reading it, I recalled our trip to Goa especially those awesome beaches. On Day 1, you covered 580km in 12hrs., that's amazing, 50 kms per hour ..
