    Good luck
    Thanks Buddy yeah the ZMA is a trustworthy steed.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Road conditions for the ride :
    Bangalore-Satara

    Road widening in progress from Sira, Lot of diversions. In a way felt that to be good, so motorists dont fall asleep.
    The same sorry state of roads around Davangere and Harihar. It doesnt do any justice to be a part of Golden Quardilateral
    Post Haveri its a sail till Satara.

    Satara-Malshej
    Fine roads from all the way except for some small patches at some place(around Kaas and Malshej), most of the route is very scenic.
    Traffic increases exponentially once you touch the NH4

    Malshej-Unai
    Malshej-Otur-Akola-Sinnar : Mixture of everything, Ghats/plains/good roads/bad roads/no roads more imporatantly Fantastic route. Almost nil traffic till Sinnar.
    Sinnar-Nashik: one might feel claustrophobic after coming from the above route and joining the highway.
    Nashik-Saputara-Vansda-Unai: Brilliant is an understatement. Once you enter Gujrat, it becomes a level higher.

    Unai-Buhari-Bajipura-Madhi-Kevdi-Dediapada-Shoolpaneshwar Wildlife Sanctuary-Rajpipla-Bodeli-Halol-Kalol-Godhra-Lunawada-Modassa-Ratanpur-Udaipur
    Unai-Dediapada: Brilliant roads with less traffic
    Dediapada-Shoolpaneshwar: Roads are good until and unless you intentionally want to take the inner roads which a bit on the rough side, but very much rideable/driveable.
    Shoolpaneshwar-Rajpipla-Bodeli: Except for some road upgradation around Bodeli, not even water would stay stagnant of the road. Roads are very good.
    Halol-Udaipur: Mix of two lane and four lane highways. Quality of the roads are fantastic. One has to watch out for Cows which come on to the road out of nowhere or refuse to stay out of the road.

    Udaipur-Gogunda-Jaswanthgarh-Sayra-Ranakpur-Sadri-Bali-Falna-Sanderao-Pali-Bullet Baba-Rohat-Jodhpur
    Till Gogunda, its one single highway till Jaswanthgarh. After that one has to be very careful while turning right as there are no Road Signs also the area is sparsely populated to ask anybody. After Gogunda Toll, Proceed around 15-20kms, you will see the road signs for the vehicles coming in the opposite side. That road shows the sign where to turn right. Apart from that wasnt able to find any Boards towards Jodhpur.
    Jaswathgarh-Ranakpur: Roads are about average, but less of traffic except for the towns the route passes through.
    Ranakpur-Sanderao-Pali : Post Ranakpur its just town after town with average and below average roads.
    Once you turnright from Sanderao: its only trucks that one can see. As four laning is under progress. Its dusty and no proper place for food or any such utilities. One cant even find a place to park for a break.
    Pali-Jodhpur: Two-Lanes as straight as an arrow. One need not enter the town of Pali to go to Jodhpur. There is a small junction before Pali with few Hawckers on either side. Turn left from there. Towards Jodhpur.

    Jodhpur-Balesar-Chandan-Pokhran-Jaisalmer
    Once you exit Jodhpur, its open roads till Jaisalmer. Not much traffic anywhere. Look out for Camels and peacocks before crashing into either of them. Peacocks will fly across the road without even the slightest indication.
    Carry enough food and water, as the places to find them are less.

    Jaisalmer-Sam Dunes: very boring straight roads. The roads have sudden dips so that the vehicle coming from the other side might not see you. So it is suggested to be at lower speeds in this section, Also since the sand will be on the road and cross winds to accompany, controlling high speeds becomes very difficult.

    Dhanana-Jaisalmer-Barmer-Sanchor-Tharad:
    Sam dunes to Dhanana: roads are narrow. If army convoy is on their way, the there would be enough space for a two wheeler to pass through. Also due to wind the dunes would have shifted to the roads. So have to be careful.
    Jaisalmer-barmer-Sanchor: Roads are deserted with minimal traffic except for places like Barmer and Sanchor. Roads around Sanchor are rough and filled with potholes.
    Sanchor-Tharad: due to trucks going towards Kadla port, the traffic increases exponentially after Sanchor. Once you enter Gujrat, roads are at their best.

    Tharad-Nadabet-Mehsana-Ahmedabad-Vadodara
    Roads are good throughout Gujrat(or atleast in the above mentioned roads) The worst part I found was Ahmedabad-Vadodara stretch, Not the Expressway. Reckless riding practices is found in abundance. Apart from the roads very good.

    Vadodara-Surat-Mumbai(NH8)
    Six lanes all the way. Road quality is of the highest order. Truck traffic is enormous. However eases out a bit after Surat.

    Mumbai-Panvel-Mangaon-Divegar-Srivardhan-Harihareshwar-(ferry) Bankot-Kelshi-Anjarle(ferry)-Harnai Beach-Dapoli-Dabhol-(Ferry)-Jaigadh-Ganapatipule
    Mumbai-Pen: Occasional potholes combined with above average traffic.
    Pen-Mangaon: Roads get congested once you pass through the towns.
    Mangaon to Ganapatipule: Mixture of good roads, Average roads, bad roads and No roads. But the good part is that its so scenic that you would not concentrate on the quality of the roads

    Ratnagiri-Tarkarli-Sawanthwadi-Bhanda-Panjim-Margoa-Karwar-Ankola-Kumta
    Again the route is so scenic that you fail to notice the rough patches that appear Occasionally. The route from Banda-Panjim along NH17 is freshly laid and is in very good condition.
    Till Karwar the road quality is above average, but once nearing the exit of Karwar, the sorry state of NH17 becomes very evident.

    Kumta-Honnavar-Jog Falls-Shimoga-Tiptur-Tummkur-Bangalore
    Surprise potholes are everwhere. The stretch from Honnavar-Jog falls are relaid, except for some section in the middle.
    The bad stretch around Sagar is completely done and is in good shape. For the section that was bad in the above route has be done.
    Lastly Tumkur-Bangalore: Part of GQ, good four lane.

    very nice travelogue indeed, enjoyed every bit! kudos and thanks for sharing!
    A good long ride can clear your mind, restore your faith, and use up a lot of fuel.

    Always be ready (get geared) to fall and then think of sitting on the motorcycle.
