    Hi Bikers!

    Greetings from Lady Biker! [
    Lady Biker ]

    Being the founder of this lady biking community; I wanted to know how far I can ride in 24 hours; I settled for Vizag.
    From my home (Kolkata) to Rushikonda, Vizag would be around 880 km.

    We were 2 riders, 2 motorcycles; me (Avenger 220), John (Duke 200).



    ~ Day #1 [ December 20, 2013] ~

    Destination: Rushikonda, Vizag
    Route:
    NH-6, NH-60, NH-5
    Miles to Munch:
    883 Km

    Any Plans ?! Keep Riding_Day&Night!


    We left home at night, 2:33 am of December 20, 2013. Enjoyed night ride of NH6 up to Kolaghat. But, after Kolaghat; dense fog interrupted our journey. Couldn't see anything but dark night and white veil of fog all around us. We had no way but to trail trucks until daylight shows up and fogs be gone.


    Trailing trucks at dense foggy night...


    NH6-NH60 X-ing


    Fogs were gone after NH60, we were maxing our bikes' speeds and munching miles at ease so that we can ride past Odisha within daylight time!

    Smooth Black-Strips..

    Highway_my second home!


    At evening time, we reached Icchapuram (Odisha-Andhra Pradesh border). Highways at AP were lonelier but in excellent condition. Night ride on highway was thrilling experience. We were heading for Rushikonda. Taking least breaks, we reached our destination late evening same day (Dec 20).
