    If that handwritten bill is the only proof that is there (about the end of ride) and also no proof about the turning point of the ride, I'm glued to this thread to see if IBA approves this ride.

    If that happen, I'll send one of my ride for approval, after 6yrs.

    Thud! Ouch! What happened? Well I fell from the couch where I generally sleep at my office. I was dreaming of cornering on my NS at Lavasa and went off too far to the edge and fell. Stood up rubbing my aching back, walked up to the water filter and gulped down a glass of water thinking. It had been long since I went for any ride. Sun was still shining blinding my eyes. The thought crossed me mind several times and won't let me concentrate on my work. Augh!


    Picked up the ringing phone next morning at 1PM, with swollen eyes saw it was my friend Rohit calling.
    Me : Hello?
    Ro : Hey, Wanna go on for Saddle Sore?
    Me : (Taken aback by surprise. Well I thought for ride not such a ride)What? Why? When? How? Which route? Sponsors any?
    Ro : No sponsor be. Pune-Blore-Pune on 12th Dec. Wanna join in?
    Me : Sure why not. But I have to manage funds first. (I generally prefer staying fundless as I spend up too much)
    Ro : Hey I thought you wanted to go with the other group.
    Me : You are going na, so I will join u.
    Ro : Ok. Let me know.
    Me : Sure. (and the phone goes dead)


    My god! Not again! Not at this point! My bike is new. I am nearly nill in funds. Still why not? I have already done more than 15k. Engine is already set. It was 3 weeks for the ride and salary would also be coming. Forgot about the ride for few days, until suddenly Rohit calls me up again. Now I am really interested and excited. What to do and what not to do I dont know. I have no idea. No time to read, no time to do anything except manage things. Fine! I will do this no matter what. So with such a resolute resolution I start preparation.
    6 Days roll by following whatsapp chats work schedules and failed tries of getting a leave from office. Its only 15 days left now and I get real anxious. Postings here and there, running helter skelter in tries to get a sponsor if possible. Finally Ankush, the Probiker guy gives a solution when I go to get my helmet's visor and a chain spray along with our own Antz. Mailed to the emails of the companies who might sponsor such a ride and I get no reply. Again Antz & Vishwas sir comes to my rescue! Man I really don't know how much I owe to these two, truly! Mailed Bajaj, following Antz's instuction and yes, I do get some good replies. Kool! Later I come to know, I would be sponsored with gears only and my main concern was fuel! Yes fuel, all thanks to the ever rising prices, normal petrol at Karnataka prices are higher than what Shell charges us for normal here in Pune. Well that din't go so well. However dropped the idea of getting a sponsorship with only 7 days left in hand now.
    The next 4 days, how it went I do not know. I was excited as well as little freaked out. I can't see good at night and in the day sunray's to my eyes causes heck lot of issues. Sun I can manage with the custom sunglasses but what at night? Stopped thinking about that. It was Monday, tactically the last possible day when I can get my leave approved. Chances seemed very less, with my manager infuriated with 4 guys on leave without information for 4 days. All I thought, whay ever you may do, I ain't coming tomorrow, the day after and the day next! Monday gone! Its Tuesday! Day where I have to reschedule my entire body clock and diet. Liquid diet, is what I had planned. Reached my company and with a excitedly heavy heart and a numb brain asked my partner, "Bro, can you take care of things for this entire week? I ain't coming. And lest anything happens, I ain't coming for a long time". Well he agreed. Signed a few legal docs which would let him tackle things in my absence. Great! All good till now. Rest is all I had to do the whole day till tomorrow. But considering the excitement, Rest? Still tried.
    It was Tuesday! The D-Day. Got freshened up and saw the clock. Damn! Its bloody 5 in the morning. Laid my lazy ass on the soft bed and kept stareing at the ceiling. Time simply won't pass! It was 11AM when I woke up again. My bike was ready with the bulged saddle bag mounted with 5 bottles of Gatorade, 6 snickers, Hajmola, 2 balaclavas, 2 Gloves, 1 raincoat, 2 bottles and yes, my SLR cam! How can I forget it? Its the only cam I got. Striding out of the house with big steps towards the garage wearing the dirty riding jacket, knee pads, riding shoes, helmet and gloves I must have been looking either like a cartoon character or some knight to the neighbours, must had been a sight.
    Adjusted the saddle bag and sat on the bike, only to pray to God,'Just let me come back home alive and in one peice'. Yes, saddle sore ain't so easy in India with a sub-quarter litre bike, atleast not for me.
    Powered on the bike and went off with a zoom, only to return back after 15 minutes. I had forgotten my bike's papers! Any cop catches in Karnataka, and I am gone for a Toss. Huffing and puffing ran back into the house got the papers and back on bike. Waved a short bye to Mom and gone. Reached The Moto Cafe at 1PM, a favorite junction of mine at the end or start of any ride. Lit up a cig & Called up Rohit, to know where we were meeting. Got to know he is already waiting for me at Shell Petrol pump on the Banglore Highway. Damn! Had hardly finished the cig, threw the rest, gear on and poof! I am off to the Start point of the fastest and the greatest ride of my entire life! Met Rohit, after a few clicks filled up petrol. It was around 74 a litre. Tanked up and as the card swiped the time started! Took a click of the ODO and the slip, packed up and started up. Saw Rohit trying to check the air pressure. Not waiting a moment more, I started out.

    In no time, I hit 90s and 100s. Crossed the overbridges, crossed Deccan Pavilion and crossed my own office. Soon came the Katraj Tunnel. I had forgotten, I was wearing my sunglasses! Lowered my speed to let the cars pass so that I can follow their red tail light. It was really freaky! Freaked out more when a brand new Nano came from nowhere into the wrong lane going into an entirely wrong direction and came into a blind corner. Are these people really so stupid? Not only they are endangering their lives but also the other road users. People should, even if they don't respect their own life, atleast value fuel. It stands a 75Rs a litre!Had crossed hardly 80kms, when I had the sudden urge of hunger. Crossed 10 more kms and stopped admidst nowhere, just road side for a snickers. Gulped down some water, when Rohit appeared of nowhere. Don't know why he stopped though, I thought we were on a Saddle Sore ride and not on a merry-go-ride. I can catch up Rohit's Fz any time with my NS, but its not the case with a Fz. However we started out briefly. Had covered a respectable 90kms in the past hour. Next stop was at Kolhapur directly. The traffic was not so dense as I had feared previously, but still there were a good amount of trucks and a fair amount of cars. We flew past the scores of cars and trucks. The greenish yellow sugarcane fields which were being harvested were crossed faster than one can blink his eye. Tolls came and went, and soon enough we crossed the city of Karad. Have some great memories of this city. The Yellow setting sun was shining right into my eyes. Soon we reached Kolhapur. Rohit is from this city. A little far away from the main entrance to Kolhapur, we had a petro-break. Tanked up once again. Felt my bike had consumed rather less fuel that it shoudl had considering the speeds I was doing. Rohit's Fz was giving him a rather low mileage of 23kmpl. Got out of the pump and stopped after just 800meters for a puff, a snicker and some Water. was saving up the Gatorade for night use. Discovered, my tail bag was brushing the rear tyre and had already made a huge hole in bag. Also one of the bottle was puntured due to high abrasion and all the water fell off! Adjusted the saddle bag again and continued. Soon it was dusk and I had to change my glasses to clear ones, so stopped.


    Was on low beam and following Rohit's tail light at 70. Suddenly an idea stuck and put the light to high. Ahh! The entire road was lightened up. Great! Now I can go faster. Crossed Rohit and shot up till 120s. Was travelling at 110s and 120s for quite some time when I remembered about Rohit and stopped. Gulped a little water when Rohit showed up. I signalled him to carry on, but he still stopped & said,"If you are gonna take breaks every 50 kms you can't do saddle sore". Yeah I agree. I suggested unknowingly asking to stop at Mah-Karnataka border as I wanted to click a pic or two. He said, it was 50 kms ahead and no point in stopping admidst Saddle sore. Good point. Soon crossed the border toll of Maharashtra and Karnataka. Man, there were hundreds of trucks and busses waiting for their turn to pass. Never saw such a sight! Hundreds of trucks, incuding big, medium, small, tiny, just manufactured, trucks carrying goods, trucks carrying trucks, trucks carrying cranes! Heck! We pressed on and continued into Karnataka.


    I rode into this state on bike after around nearly a year. Last time I came here, I was on my RTR with Kartik and were heading to Kali River basin forests, Dandeli. Time changed, destination changed, ride changed, co-rider changed. The roads were good here. Saw a grand building totally lit up. I was really amazed to see such a beautiful place. Speeds fell as I was wondering what the heck it is in the middle of nowhere. I wanted to click a pic of this building but din't dare to stop. Roads were narrower than previous and also cops were guarding it and asking questions to anyone who stopped. Thought I must click a pic of this place when I return. I started going faster and faster, crossed Rohit. Was doing around 130s. Din't know the NH4 was broken up for repairs and the on going traffic was diverted via some small villages and towns. When the surroundings changed into small huts from vast barren lands and bushes to bigger buildings, I freaked! Was thinking I might have gone into some other road, Rohit must be searching for me. Suddenly I see a board written in shiny golden, NH4 Go straight. It brought me back into my senses and relived a little of tension. As soon as we crossed over this place, all the Bad roads of the NH4 started! At every 2 kilometers there was a diversion.By now, I had lowered my speed down to 40s and 50s, thanks to the slow moving trucks carrying trailer. Soon Rohit caught up and signalled to stop. He too had freaked out at the same place as me for the same reason. We stopped at a nearby Pan shop and had a cig each along with water. I was starting to feel the exhaustion caused by the wind. Had a hajmola to bring my senses back to my nerves.


    I was leading and was far away from Rohit. So far that he wasn't even visible in my RVMs. After an hour or more, I stopped. Called up Rohit to be informed that his rear tyre had got puntured and he was in teh process of fixing it. Was thinking on what to do, either continue or wait. However I chose the mid option. Continued along the diversified road at 40s and 50s in a hope for Rohit's arrival. It was nearly 9:30PM and dint see Rohit for a long time now so stopped and call him up. He had started but was slow due to the traffic. He asked me to stop at the first gas bunker I see. Stopped at this old HP pump. Everything was closed. A shabby Pulsar 150 was standstill nearby along with 3-4 trucks and trailers. After waiting for close to an hour and 3 calls, Rohit appeared. Rohit had a tyre punture which had him busy. He had a small snickers break and took off to the nearby open gas bunker. Topped up and a pic with the ODO. It was still 250 odd kms left for us to complete the first leg of the ride. We had barely 2 hours left to reach Banglore as it was nearly 11PM already. All I could think of now from here was how to reach Banglore. With the amount of traffic and diversions, it was really doubtfull if we could even make it to Banglore by next 3 hours.
    The roads were under construction and were mostly single laned now. I din't dare to leave Rohit for a single moment out of sight here on. Bit by bit, fatigue was starting to take toll combined with the exhaustion and dust. I pulled over to wear the balaclava and guess what, both my balaclavas had fallen off somewhere through the hole in the saddle bag. Damn! Was feeling the cold wind blowing to the neck. Wind chill had had me shiverring to the bones. It was 12 odd and we had hardly made to Banglore with still 190+ kms left. The traffic was really torturing us with the time line close to our heels. I had taken the charge and after a few minutes of fighting the dust, thankfully something happened and a narrow gap opened up between the traffical group of Trucks and trailers. We rolled down the tiny gap which was nearly about to close off. Same happened in the next 11 or so diversions and soon we landed up crossing Tumkur and it was 1:15AM. With barely 45 minutes in hand, we sped off towards Banglore.


    It was very late already when we pulled up at Banglore, leaving us with barely 11 Hours to complete the return leg. We searched high and low for a simple pertol pump or ATM but they were no where to be found! Continued on the same route for the next 11 kilometers before turning back. Joy lit up in our eyes when we saw a pump near here. Crossed over to the other side and there was no one in the pump. After a little searching, found they were all tight asleep. Parked the bike and walked up to one of the sleeping fellows, tried to wake him up. He started saying something in the local language, reluctant to speak the national language. Later understood when one of the other fellows came up and told me that he says,"Let me sleep I have worked too much. Stand in queue behind that Sumo and catch some sleep. Will fill up when I get up".
    Seriously WTH! And this pump has a board displayed "24Hours Service". Found the Tata Sumo standing few meters from where we were standing, people in it were all asleep. After some more failed attempts, I left him with his sleep for good. Here Rohit was beginning to loose interest in ride. Stopped for some more minutes, gulped down some gatorade to soak the thirsty throat, Had a snicker and some pics before beginning the return.

    We were both doing some decent speeds when suddenly the yellow light of low fuel reserve began. Was just short of this now and no open pump in sight we continued. Could do some 100 or 130kms before it goes all dry. Indicated Rohit, I needed fuel urgently. Crossed over to Tumkur and to Haveri before we hit a gas station. Did a tankfull of 800bucks. Fuel was costly here by 5 bucks. Finally we were about to start when I started feeling sleepy. Rohit continued off the station and on to the NH4. I could see the traffic was too less and there was already a jam building up on the other side. Took a power nap for around 15-20mins and Gatoraded up a little bit forcing the sleep to go and I too took off. Rohit was already 35 mins ahead of me. Was doing around 130 when the sun started up. The scene was eeric enough for a photo enthusiast to stop and click and on top of that a small canal or river came. Stopped immediately, ran back like a little kid with the SLR in hand for a sunrise pic over the mountains and the stream. After a few clicks, change in settings and some clicks again, started to go.

    The traffic was really low here. People were doing wrong paths. Cars and even Trucks came into wrong lane. Man! Thats a NH they were travelling on or some street, was my thought. However was going on at a decent speed, not caring at all for the time line. Getting Saddle sore certified was suddenly no longer at all important. Stopped quite frequently to click pictures of roads, surroundings and landscapes. It was on such a stop where I caught this i20 without a lisence plate and moving in the wrong lane. It was around 8:30 and suddenly my head turned to the distance board which read, "Pune 532 KMS" and Rohit was no where in sight.

    Was nearly at 140 when a brand new white Chevy Cruze with sport lines and 'Test Vechile' written in such a design that it made me fall for it. No no, I did not fall from the bike. Nah! Not at all! I fell in love at first sight with the Cruze. It over took me with me at 140 and made me feel I was kinda standstill. Within seconds it was nowhere in sight and the view of the road in front looked somewhat exactly as the Nevada-Vegas highway. Memories barely 8 months old of the 1967 Super charged Chevy Impala that I and my cousin drove around on our ride to Las Vegas all the way from Utica, NY flashed before my eyes. Great were the days in the land of the free and brave. Well we did end up paying a lot as rent for that car, more than enough to get myself a Chevy Beat here in India. A picture of the road did not do the justice though.


    Picked up some more speed and suddenly saw another board, "Pune 460 KMs, Panaji 165 KMs". Damn! I did really miss Goa this year. Had sponsored my employees' Goa trip and I was the poor fellow who could not go to Goa. Blood gushed with more excitement through the nerves. Saddle sore ride did not matter at all to me now. Stopped thrice to ask people the total distance via Goa and the coastal route to Pune. Well that is a route I always wanted to do. With the vast blue sea, light yellow sands, sun and coconut trees visible every little distance is the special character of this route adding to that, if one is not comfortable with directions then one should not be doing this route. Not suggested route in Monsoons. Well, I agree it is only a single laned but the view made my heart beg of my brain to do the distance. After asking to more than 10 people which included 7 truckers I got a reply from a Piaggio driver. "The road ain't too good. Its 170kms to Panaji and 28 odd more to the coastal route. Beyond to which it would be around 600kms to Pune". 600? Plus 200? 800 Kms? Damn! I am low on funds to do this route. I was also warned that the route passed through some not-so-good woods. But still, like a little kid I went on around 10 odd kms trying to see the sea before turning back. The road was really broken up.


    However, I was back on the NH4 and it was already nearing 9:40AM, and with nearly 400kms is left over on the cards. Sped off at 140s and thats all I could and had to do, if I wanted to finish the saddle sore at all. Sleep, fatigue, tiredness all went away and there was a slight pain in the neck and the back I could feel. Hours passed as the distance was munched and suddenly I find myself in Nippani and then at Kolhapur. The city was crossed in seconds as I flew past it. My vision malfunctioned and I was seeing hazy, and upon realizing that I realised I had forgotten to blink resulting tear drops accumulating in front of my vision. Blinked as fast as I could and tears rolled down the cheeks to the beard and lost. Soon I crossed over to Karad. The sugarcane that had been harvested yesterday, were being loaded into bullock carts and lot many were being pulled on the NH4. Even the thin traffic was hampered enough to cause a jam of few minutes. It was soon that they cleared up and we were ready to go.


    Was speeding way beyond the limit and suddenly my eyes fell on the Petrol bar going low, so had to make a stop to fill up a little. I din't know I had already reached Satara and it was 20 minutes passed 12. Excitement reached the nerves as my eyes fell on the clock. I knew I stood a chance. All I had to do was to get to Pune before 2 anyhow. Pune was little more than 100kms. Everything was spinning in my head, everything! Figured out that I had a headache. Pulled up to have the last bar of snicker, took a medicine and gulped down some Gatorade. My water bottle had fallen of somewhere. Hoping there won't be any chem reaction between Gatorade and the medicine as the white patches that I got is a result of some chemical reaction.

    Increased speeds to excess of 145 as I crossed Shirwal and Bhor's crossing, home to my friend Panku (Pankaj). Hunger was igniting in me when I saw Rohit from a distance. Unsure of what I saw, as he quickly dissappeared, I continued at the same pace. Soon came into Katraj tunnel and the first time on the NS I get the opportunity to fully open up the bike to its fullest. The entire tunnel was empty and this time I was on my clear day/night glasses. Made an entry into the tunnel at close to 130 and by the time I was admidst the tunnel, I looked down on the odo for a sec and I was awestuck to find the figure on the meter! It had done a 153kmph with a very little accelerator to go. Twisted the handle like have never done before to break into a figure of 155kmph. I had seriously turned into a human bullet! I am still unsure of the % of error the meter has, but the figure surely inspired tons of confidence into me. Very soon I reached to Ambegaon and continured on to the nearest pump. The wating queue was moderately huge. How much time passed, I have no idea. Fatigue had taken the toll. Moved up and asked the attendant to fill up fuel worth 200 bucks. Asked him to get me a electronic recipt, and he said, 'sorry bhau, kagaz khallas zhale'. Augh! I din't have the energy left to make it to swargate or somewhere else. It was Thursday and it would be crowdy to move anywhere now. Asked him to sign the reciept and write the time too. Clicked pics and headed straight to my office nearby. Enroute visited the ATM for cash as I had only 50rs left over. Got a pack of Classic and as I was heading to my office, I happened to meet up with my office's land lord.

    He was stunned to see me like that. Covered in dust, Armored to the very last bit, two huge office bag lookalike but huge, shivering still with pain and walking up to the 5th floor. As I entered my office space, all stood up to see who is the dusty fellow. Din't want to grab any more attraction and walked straight into my cabin. Seemed I was more exhausted in climbing up to 5th floor rather than doing Pune-Banglore-Pune under 24 hours. Lit a cig as I drained all the left over gatorade bottles. Exhausted I was, Sleepy I was could not be tackled with 1 and a half bottle of gatorade. More than 24 hours it was without sleep, just riding riding and riding and not even stopping for anything and just doing insane speeds!

    It was hours after in the late evening when I woke up, could see the reddish sky. Went down to check out my bike. Hunger was nearly killing me. My brain was not funtioning to the fullest. Limped my way to the parking. The pain in the back and neck was unbearable. Found the Saree guard was not there on my bike. Must had fallen off. Tyre hugger was loose. Upon closer inspection found the metal part was broken. I had no idea how that happened. Striding off the way, My partner asked me to join him to Poladpur. He had his brand new Renault Duster fully loaded, where I settled into the rear seat for a cozy sleep where he drove me off.

    Just to remove confusion about offices, One is where I work and one is which I own.

    Thanks to Rohit, Antz, Vishwasji, Ankush (Probiker), Devjeet, Afkar sir, Avi, Pandeyji (Bajaj), Sagar (Bajaj), and all those whom I have missed for supporting me. Lastly thanks to Karan paaji for developing and maintaining the site.

    Man, this is just so much entertaining. Now I know why many other people make fun of you.

    Assuming that what you have uploaded are the pictures to show as proof.

    You said, you tanked up at Hiriyur(as per the fuel receipt of Rs 800) & then at you tank up at Satara. That's ~570km's & with the average speed(not max speed) of well over 110km/hr that you were doing, you got an average of ~57km/lt?

    Btw, even if you have got that awesome FE & you didn't refill in between, don't bother sending your ride to IBA for approval. Even if they accept your hand written time stamp for end of ride, they require that one MUST refill every 500km's & get a fuel bill of the same.

    Now, if you passed Rohit some where around Bhor turn off (As you mentioned). You have ended the ride (as per your hand written time stamp) at 1:25pm, while Rohit ended his ride at 1:43pm, that's a gap of ~20+min's(considering that you also had to wait in Q to fill fuel).
    You pulled a gap of around 20min's in a distance of around 30km's.

    @Nav sir : I filled fuel at and have receipts of the following places from the entire journey.

    Hiriyur 800 (Manual)
    Haveri 470 (Manual)
    Dharwad 100 (Digital)
    Satara 100 (Digital)
    Ambegaon 200 (Manual)
    Mulshi 820 (Digital)
    Kolhapur 550 (Digital)

    About crossing Rohit : I have also written "Unsure of what I saw"

    I hope the above would suffice the IBA guys as I did fill up some fuel every 350kms.

    Congrats for the ride..

    But I dont understand this concept all together!! Some call it endurance ride some xyz.. but I believe sitting on a machine for 24 hours is all about it!! Why not do it on a bicycle!? That would be a true endurance ride!! You gain nothing out of these rides.. Your body only loses.

    How many of us are game for a bicycle ride for 24 hrs? Atleast that will strengthen your legs apart from the usual butt.. which would anyway be strengthened if you sit on a stool for 24 hrs!!

    Not to undermine achievements of many.. but the whole concept is disheartening.

    I would prefer a gaming company designing a life size motorcycle with a 24 hr game installed. You just have to run the bike virtually in the game(choose 150 cc for 500 bucks, 200cc for 1000 etc etc) without keeping your feet on the ground or completing 1600 kms in 24 hours with occasional freetime.

    Atleast you will avoid endangering yours and others lives.. save fuel.. will not worry about approval process etc etc. and the same iron like butt feeling!!

    it is not about the butt feeling, in fact after a Saddlesore ride, there will be no feeling left in your butt to feel anything..LOL...this is a funny thread...plz merge this in "hilarious thread"

    Hmmm.. You have a point about safety, but well, riders like utsavchs (many others here, perhaps even yourself) are experienced enough to judge their ability to drive further. The point you make would really make much more sense if it were directed at newbies attempting to do the same.

    Save fuel: Well then no ride is an understandable concept?

    No offence
