Going for a ride is also a way of maintaining a bike with good condition before and after the trip I do bike services so spend a whole day in the Yamaha service centre. Mostly in Service centre they won’t allow bike owners to get in to the service area, like emergency ward in the Hospitals but with showroom manager permission I have joined with R15 trained mechanic to do many “Do It Yourself” works to understand and communicate with my beast.
I myself have changed the engine oil, oil filter, air filter, chain lube and changed the left mirror (It was broken).
I know each one you will do all this service activity. I just want to share that everyone will feel the soul of your bike if you do the complete service for it. Trust me.
Good Luck for your ride. Best Wishes & Have a safe ride.
Now, Since you are doing it under a bigger banner - Try to document all information that you come across, be it pictures, road conditions, some interesting info about a place (or some tips / suggestions given by locals), etc.
Carry a Netbook / Mini Laptop for backing up pictures, and enjoy the ride to the maximum. Good Luck once again.
Good luck buddy, your triumph has reminded me about my bicycle expedition (an NCC event) way back in '97. It was around tamil nadu we covered 900km in 10 days. I bet you will love it.
Keep your gear well prepared, especially keep a good medical kit. Wishing you a great tour and enlighten us with your experience when you are back.
Its crime to ride a car alone, so I ride bike :).

Ananth : Thank you very much. Yes Laptop and Medical kit is very essential hence I have already packed it in the Saddle bag. All your trip logs helped on this. Thank you again.
I havent add the complete plan but added the districts according to the trip date and day. You can find the kms between each districts.
For instance, to reach Thiruvallur district from chennai its 50kms.
Journey starts from Chennai.

^^^ Looks flawless to me
Pls accept my respects towards your hardwork & homework that has been put into the above plan. Really, there're very very few people who do tremendous effort like this.
I like to meet you after your trip; appreciate if you can make to one of the G2G
No signature for sometime
A great attempt there, all the best for your endeavor but frankly I did not get the purpose .
Can you make an effort in explaining it with layman's terms?

Sometimes it takes a whole tankful of fuel before you can think straight.
It was not that far on the map.
Hope you have already started your journey, All the very best for your assignment.
