    Thanks @Ravish, The Elephant Story? Its a surprise. Encountered an elephant crossing the road in Karikala forest road. I think it's trained to be nice to the travellers. But we are not sure about it. I was riding 4th so all three bikers went fast before the elephant crossing the road. when I was nearing the location the moment has occured. its always feel to be with the nature and the elephant crossing made the ride more unforgettable. Now thinking I should go for a long forest safari some time to enjoy other wild life experiences.

    Default In total our ride timing log was 24 hours

    Krishnagiri - Hosur - Mysore - Hansur - Gonikoppal - Iritty Kannur

    Due to very hot climate we got exhausted around 30 km before reaching Kannur. Couple of cool drinks and tender coconuts saved us. We have reached Kannur around 3 pm. The camera shop was very near to old bus stand and air conditioned shop was the only relief once we entered in to the shop. Not only jacket, I have removed shoes as well and found a corner place to sit and relax. I didnt even check the camera models. Dony was very eager and interested to touch the feel his new full frame camera and after 3 hours of time including lunch time finally Dony has done with the payments and packed all the accessories to start our return journey. With no delay we rushed to nearby beach to check in and the worst part is from the road we cant see the beach and we are not ready to park the bike and get in to the beach so tried to get in to the different route to reach beach but the military people around the beach said that there is no any other route to reach beach but I didnt feel great about it. The time was 6 pm and we need to start our return journey as soon as possible. So I started finding some other route and around 800 meters before the beach entrance I found a small way to some where I guessed that way will take us to beach and wit out any question I just road in to and to be surprise we have reached a beautiful place as you can see in the above video at last clip. Without knowing that this location is restricted by army, we just went in and started doing photographs and videos. In 15 minutes we were asked to go out of that place by 3 military men. The location was so cinematic and best view of the beach.

    Finally we are on the way to home. And of course it was a night ride and we maintained to follow each other to avoid any confusion. While riding through the hill station and forest road during night time I remembered a scene from Fast & Furious Tokyo Drift. In one scene the heroin will take the hero for a drive along with her friends to a nearby hills road and the drifting correlation and timing between each car will be so aligned and perfect to see. Same as we were doing slow and steady cornering and constant speed all over the night ride. Still Iritty we experienced very hot climate and a tin of red bull helped us to get some energy I believe. And after Iritty the climate become so cool and pleasant to ride. During day time itself there was no much traffic and imagine about night. Literally we were the kings of the road till we reach Mysore. Couple of pit stops, snacks and few mins chat helped us to be wake all over the night without any sleeping issue.

    We started the ride on 25th March at 5:05 am from Krishnagiri
    We reached back Krishnagiri on 26th March at 4:44 am.

    In total our ride timing log was 24 hours. All together we had a hot, cool, pleasant, cornering, and new adventure ride for a day. For sure we will plan for another trip with more bikers to experience the joy of biking in this route.
