  • [Photo Feature]: Hyderabad+Bangalore+Chitradurga+My Farm+Hospet+Hampi+Bellary+Hyderabad= 1800 kms

    Distance covered: 1800 kms
    Physical damage: Nether regions sensory loss.
    Mental Damage: None

    The photos are in descending order. Most memorable was Hampi , but Chitradurga to Hospet was a bad stretch, and Hospet to Gooty even worse.
    the caves are in Chitradurga we took a detour to my farm near Chitradurga to meet my family, you can see me wading through some fields with my gigantor brother

    Bangalore was 2-3 day pitstop caught-up with friends went to coorg etc etc


    Hyderabad to Bangalore was also memorable that,s the last few photos . We took so many detours in hyd-bang stretch that it it took 13 hrs to finish.
    Alone I had done it in 8 hrs once before.

    You can also see me warming up against the engine. I expected warm weather, last 100 kms the cold got so bad my wind cheater started cheating me, I was shivering and teeth started chattering.

              Did you take NH63 from Hampi to Gooty? Was that the bad road you speak of? I will be doing Hampi to Hyderbad in a few days, google maps suggests a straight shot north east through Raichur. Any thoughts from anyone?

                Sorry bro was busy with bike repair. I think you might have finished your trip if not take the raichur road only if travelling in daylight it's not a straight shot it gets confusing in the night. we took nh 63 simple but shitty.

                  Nice pics Chetan. Hampi is long-pending for me. Hope to see it this monsoon at least. .

                  Ha.. ha.. ha.. We had the taste of the Ballary-Gooty stretch in 2008. It took us 3 hours to cover that stretch. Lol, seems the road is same even after 4 years.
