    Good to see a thread planning for LEH, i am too planning but not fixed ...

    There are two routes where you can ride till New Delhi, so i was planning to explore both the routes, one while going and one while coming back. the two routes are as follows:

    one which you have already posted and second one is :

    Mumbai - Indore - Gwalior - Agra - New Delhi

    Do not use the Mumbai-Indore- Agra- Delhi route. Indore to Agra is two lane and with very heavy traffic. Also the road is narrow and has no shoulders. Stick to Jaipur side.
    Biking is not about what you have between your legs, its all about how well you use it!!!!!!!

    Default hmmm... nice .. but not practical

    Dude,,,
    after riding for first 2 consecutive days, u can't ride for the third day without wakingup late in the morning.

    I feel Jaipur to delhi & stay at delhi would be more better.

    Then you can continue straight to manali with a break ( might needed )

    Hi Dhiraj, I beleive following NH-8 is good as rightly said by The Monk. and also this is my first tym so wanna follow the most used route.
    Anyways if u have good knowledge abt Gwalior-Agra route, we can have discussions on tht.

    Remeber the schedule is open for changes.

    Valid point. I will surely have a hard thought on that before finalising the schedule.
