    Arrow Bangalore - Shimoga - Jog Falls - Bangalore

    Trip Route: Bangalore - Tumkur - Shimoga - Jog Falls - Mattur - Shimoga - Tumkur - Bangalore

    Km on ODO: 850

    Rides and Riders: Myself on Yamaha R15 (Recently Joel'd to R17)
    Rudra on Hero Honda CBZ Extreme
    Kamal Raj on Yamaha FZ16

    An unplanned trip again. Was chatting with my office mates about going out somewhere over the weekend and the plan ended up in Shimoga. We were three people and decided to leave Friday afternoon. The plan was to reach Shimoga before sunset and hence to leave Bangalore by 1 p.m. Not discussing the reasons, but we could leave Bangalore only at 3. Saturday was spent in riding to Jog and stopping almost every km on the way for clicks. The place is lush green and awesome scenery everywhere. The road to Shimoga is in awesome condition with NO bad stretches anywhere. Will not write much as the trip was super cool and we enjoyed both the ride and the places we visited. Rain was waiting for us everywhere. I will let the pictures speak for the rest of the log.

    On the way to Shimoga.

    At the end, will like to mention something about Joel's Big Bore kit. This was my first trip on his big bore and exhaust. Trust me people, the bike feels SO different when you open the throttle, Kudos Joel!

    Nice ride and some lovely pictures there ! You are so right about the Shimoga route, it really is beautiful. We rode that route this April on our way back from Goa. It shows from your pics how much greener it is after the rains.
    I'm posting a picture of Jog we took in April just to show how small the fall was then

    Keep Riding & Ride Safe



    Cheers !

    Thank you ridermax. The green was like everywhere. The fall was full of water, I was trying a PAN image of the falls but could not do so because of the clouds. I hear that it will grow bigger now, after monsoons and locals told us that it would be best in September or early October.

    Thank you for your comment. Almost all trips you see on xbhp are self financed . We take our own bikes and ride hard! Cheers and keep riding!
