Day 1 (31/05/2019) 4:00 am
I did not have enough sleep out of excitement, so I woke up at 3:00 am freshened up, installed saddle bag on my bike and I was ready to leave. Since bike was already fuelled up, I don’t have to worry about it. Start of my ride Wakad to Hadapsar, which is the city end. My Dominor 400 wheeled out of parking. Ignition on, engine roared to life. City was deserted except for few trucks that roamed around. Temperature was around 25 degree.
Pune to Sholapur- 250 kms covered
Till Hadapsar this is the end of Pune city. I had to maintain speed of 65-70 kms. As soon as I reached highway it took me seconds to race it on 100kms on butter smooth roads. I was constantly maintaining speed of 105-110kms/hrs. with two tea breaks, it took 3 hrs to reach Sholapur.
Sholapur to Omerga- 350 kms covered
Around 7:30 am I stopped my bike to take some snaps with pee break. I started again, it was a single lane road with diversions of 100-200 meters and village roads. I had to maintain speed of 50kms this patch of 50kms will eat up your time.
Omerga to Humnabad-400 kms covered
Since roads are constructed, though it is single lane but with decent roads you will find buses and trucks racing against each other early morning.
