    Topic Approved.

    Seems like a good plan, with decent number of people. Will be keeping an eye out on this thread for the "live" updates.

    Thanks Aryan for approving

    I am not carrying a laptop for this trip so chances for the live update is minimal.But i will try posting the logs on the same day if it possible as I realy wanted to record the fresh feel and experience then and there.

    Lets see how it goes

    the plan looks neat, but looks like you might be pushing yourself. when you are visiting muliyangiri why not kemmangundi and bababudangiri.

    why do you want to travel to coimbatore and ride back to chikamagulur.instead, ask your friends to join you in bangs,which means 1 day used as a spare day, any delays and you should not be baffeled.

    Please carry a spare Clutch Cable / Battery-Fuse / Tyre-Tube and a Puncture Repair Kit.

    Also as Steve said, I guess 12 days will take a toll on the body - Have a reserve day and take ample breaks where ever possible.

    Enjoy your trip, Good Luck & Happy Riding!

    I completely agree with you.I can join them in chikmagalur or mysorebut I wanted to start along with my friends and moreover I wanted to see my bro's kid and my parents,so i am going to coimbatore.Added ooty for more fun.

    And I know Day 1 ,6 and 7 are bit tough considering the female crowd with us, but they all had done 2 mock trips 400 to 500 kms per day(Coimbatore to trichy -coimbatore and Coimbatore to chennai-mahabs-coimbatore ) last week and all felt comfortable. so i am confident
