    NH4 is THE way to go.

    Just came that way from Kerala on Saturday..... butter smooth roads, except, as Vishwas said, the 3 stretches... was able to make the 980kms journey in 16hrs in a M800...so figure

    No one is sayin its not good to do the ride The route you had chosen would be a tedious one. NH4 would be butter smooth comparably.

    P.S If you dont have prior experience of NH4 its advisable to just make short trips so as to season up for the roads. The roads would be straight, give you an invitation to rip apart, but the dangers are totally unpredictable and just take moments to come in front of you.

    Thanks velociraptor.

As soon as you cross kittur and enter dharwad, the one near dharwad HC . 2. Hubli entry point. 3. Just a little ahead of hubli . (Not sure of this one though) Source: A local had warned me about these the last time I done this route.
    If possible try to break up the journey into two parts if you wanna ride comfortably to bengaluru.Leave mumbai by 10 am so that you reach pune by 2 pm and you hit hubli by 8 pm.
    1. Mumbai-->Pune-->Hubli (Halt at hubli)
    2.Hubli-->Chitradurga-->Tumkur-->Bangalore
    Have a safe ride.
    Cheers,
    Pai

    Thanks. Guys if you think it is not a good idea to do this ride.. then i would probably skip it and do a train back and forth. thanks again for your quick response. really appreciate it.

    i intend to visit bengaluru soon in the next 3- 4 months (hopefully but most likely August '11) primarily for 2 reasons:

    a) Get my bike JOELED!!!

    b) Meet old school friends and have a blast there.

    Hence, i am planning to go crazy and do a solo ride from Mumbai all the way to Bengaluru and enjoy somewhat 'small touring experience' others have logged in their account!!

    Total distance to be covered approx: 1071+ kms

    Judging by the fact that i would be probably hitting south during peak monsoon. Hence, need advise from you all in terms of the most suitable route, road conditions (as of now), on route pit stop hotels if any (i donot intend to do a 1000 km saddle sore attempt )

    As of now, i have acquired protective riding gear (Riding jacket, bionic knee guards, courtesy, Mr. Bhavishya, Scoyco) for such a task, saddle bags for luggage and also now in the process of acquiring rain gear for the same. Will get foot pump and puncture repair kit soon for DIY puncture repair incase such thing does occur.

    any advise from experience riders, or those who have already done this would be greatly appreciated.

    I remember reading somewhere the in bengaluru, police interceptor vehicles are always on the lookout for bikers from outside and on the highways, once one enters the outskirts of bengaluru, the max speed for bikes is below 60 kmph?? any advice regarding how to tackle crooked cops would be a plus.
