    Default AJP in 32 districts of TN

    AJP - Augmented Journey for a Personality

    A kind request please have a glance on the below link before start reading this thread J

    http://www.xbhp.com/talkies/touring-...tml#post730079

    Planning for the past ONE YEAR J (from 11th Aug 2011)

    A year before I had a rough idea with full confidence like I CAN DO the complete Tamilnadu state road trip with my Discover 125 cc . Then I realized after reading a lot of Travel logs in xBhp that I have to do some preplan and importance of safe biking thus made me to start over this thread after a year with a plan & purpose. If you see that map in the above link I have just used MS Paint to draw the road line in Tamilnadu map what a funny of myself . 'I proudly say TIME is the precious and vital source that we all have and with that we can do anything in this world and I believe that it is used wisely by everyone.' I showed up in xBhp on 7th April 2011. Though I am raiding for the past 6 years now, I have learned basic concepts of safe biking, protective gears, riding norms & sense, started respecting fellow riders in the society and group riding skills after joining xBhp.com.

    So, to start this ride, I brought protective gears one by one then finally chose my beast and it is not any other than YAMAHA R15 v2. Here I must thank xBhp Chennai Offline G2G members who have been directly and indirectly molded my riding skills. Done many short rides, little circuit rides fewer touring rides with Chennai Offline G2G bikers and fellow biking friends. Got some little understanding about touring and started the planning accordingly.

    As I did earlier, again starting this thread before the trip commences. I havent started clicking photos to fill this thread but fixed the dates to explore the Tamilnadu. I would like to take this thread live by uploading theme photos with short logs on day to day basis (possible! I guess ).
    From 2nd Aug to 11th Aug 2012 I will in the AJP.

    Fine points are coming soon.

    3000km in a single state is not something we see too often. Please keep it coming
    Advice is a form of nostalgia.
    Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.

    Excellent idea!!! Intensive touring (30+ districts), as opposed to exhaustive touring (eg Chennai - Kolkata). You will be a 'walking wikipaedia' about TN for us all....

    Have you seen the movie 'Ramana' starring Vijayakanth? You can start reciting all the facts and figures of TN roads down to 4 decimal places.... he he - just kidding!

    Default Monsoon!

    since you are rising in western ghats beware of Rains.

    Coimbatore Weather - Six day weather forecast Coimbatore, State of Tamil Nadu

    Beware of almost everything out in the highway and dont underestimate an Piagio ape which will be doing some 30s the corner of the road but can make sudden lane changes and prove more dangerous than a Truck.
