    One things that is usually overlooked is the loss of salts with all the sweating. What I find very helpful after long rides is having a couple of glasses ORS solution. Or water with a little sugar and a pinch of salt.

    To sum it up;

    • Use common sense.
    • Stay hydrated.
    • Remember the obvious quote i.e

    "A minute off the saddle is a mile more on the highway!"

    Very very helpful article. With proper discipline and a cruising speed of 70~80 kmph, one should be able to cover 600 km on highway in India.

    How ever, while planning the trip we should always try to keep no more than 600 km a day if riding in a group.

    My maximum with was 790 km a day (Origin - Destination; 2 motorcycle), but with more than 4 motorcycles, I always struggle to do more than 600 km a day.
