    Default Day 10 - 11: Kanyakumari - Madurai - Chennai

    Day 10: Kanyakumari to Madurai

    A splash and a dash is the best way to describe the day, as the wonderful highways of Tamil Nadu beckoned. All the more welcome after the slow speed two lane roads of Kerala! The roads exiting Kanyakumari lead you straight in the midst of the windmill farms and such an opportunity could not be missed. And the Benellis went off the beaten track onto a dirt road looking for a photo op with the mountains and windmills. And what a view that turned out to be. The almost arrow straight roads let the team make quick time to Madurai for the night halt, though technology in the form of the GPS once again led everyone round the bend. Quite literally actually, as the team travelled right through the heart of the city to cross over to the other side, since the GPS failed to give directions via the bypass! Madurai also finally gave the team a chance to catch up on pending work, as there was nothing else to do. No, really!

    Day 11: Madurai to Chennai

    It was time to head to the industrial city of Chennai from Madurai. A few bikers from Madurai rode out with the team for 30-40 km on their bikes and saw off everybody. The team made quick work of the road to Chennai, but the last 100 kilometres entering the city is a nightmare. Especially during peak hour traffic with busloads of people getting back home after a day in the factory. Cant complain because most of them are busy working on motorcycles and cars we so love!

    Though it is important to mention that even though the team was riding these bikes in Chennai heat in congested traffic, none of the bikes heated up. At no point was the rider made uncomfortable because of excessive heat. A boon indeed for those in India who like to ride big bikes!
