    Default For the Love of the Road - Best roads in Karnataka

    Road trips are well, meant for ‘The Road’, the urge to ride just for ‘The Road’ is something I can’t reason for and in spite of the numerous road trips I still haven’t figured it out nor has the urge diminished.

    There was only one agenda for this ride - Roads

    Riders : Sharath (hifisharu) and yours truly

    Steeds: CBR250 and R1

    Route: Bangalore - Hassan - Belur - Hassan - Madikeri (via Gorur) - Bangalore

    Road Conditions:

    1) NH48: Bangalore(Nelamangala) to Belur Cross - Excellent (4- way delight )
    2) NH 48: Hassan - Chanarayanapatna (CR patna) - OK (Single lane with lots of diversions, Nightmare to ride at Night)
    3) CR Patna to Hassan - OK (Single Lane with better heads-up for diversions )
    4) Hassan to Belur - Excellent (is an understatement, one of the best in India)
    5) Hassan to Madikeri (via Gorur) - Pathetic ( not at recommended, took me 4 hrs to cover 115kms)
    6) SH 88: Madikeri - Mysore - Excellent (is an understatement, one of the best in India)
    7) Mysore to Bangalore - Good ( Worst road sense traffic coupled with surprises(road humps)

    Here is an ode to some of the best and scenic roads in Karnataka:

    SH88 - What a fantastic road !!!

    Trust me the photos don’t do the justice, you gotta hit these roads hard to feel what I am saying.

    Go ahead, start tripping !!!!

    Needless to say that NH4 passing through KA is one of the good roads.
    Do you guys have the rear of both the bikes taken together ?

    Aargee - The only section of NH4 involved was from Blore to Nelamangala (hardly 25kms)..

    This was mostly NH48 and SH88 and SH17

    @Srikeerthi - Thanks for approval

    I couldnt upload the high res pics, sorry about that
    As I had mentioned that the ride agenda was to 'Ride just for the Roads',but yes I would love to visit the temples at Belur and Halebied(which needs about 2 days)
