    Approved!

    Liked the teasers. You guys seem to have had a great time. I hope that the riding gear/hemlets are absent only for pics.

    Thanks for Approving Divya Sharan. We wore proper riding gears through out the ride. @Divya Sharan / Mods : Request to change the name Dhushkodi to Dhanushkodi in the Title.

    The Preparations:

    Day 1-2 : Hotel MCM booked at Rameshwaram

    Day 2-3: Hotel Shivamurghan booked at Kanyakumari

    Day 3-4: Hotel TTDC booked at Kanyakumari

    Brought Vietarra saddle bags ( 2 LEH & One Claw). All of us got our bike serviced 2-3 days prior to the Ride. We were all very eager to ride hence did not make much plans for visiting the places.

    Day 1 :

    Bangalore - Rameshwaram

    Distance Covered - 636kms

    Me & Varun left left around 6AM & Reached abhi's place by 6.15. By 6.45 we were off to Rameshwamram , there was hell lot of traffic till hosur & from there on it was pretty good .We tanked up near Krishnagiri MCD & we were off againWe were cruising around 65-70 we hardly got you touch 80 because of the traffic. We took our first break at Anand Bhavan around 9.15, by then we had covered 161 kms . We had couple of dosas & idlys .The food was quiet okay. But it turned out that this was the best food we would be having for the next 2 days.

    All Geared up:

    We left A2B by 9.45 & it was getting hot , Once we crossed Salem , the roads were beautiful and we started hitting good speeds , we were consistently doing 80-90km/hr. Since the roads were dead straight & empty we decided to check our bike's top speed. I Won't be mentioning the speed as I find it to be irrelevant to the travelogue. We took a small break around 12.15 as we were dehydrated.

    We reached madurai around 3 & had stopped to a quick chat & to tank up my bike. By now we had covered 456kms.

    Since we had to cover some distance we decided to skip lunch & had some biscuits & tender coconut instead . The sun was going down & it was much easier to ride. It's a single lane highway from madurai to rameshwaram , we maintained around 60-65 for the next few kms. We went through a lot of villages and roads were average(Lots of patches on the road). We reached Pambam Bridge around 6, the place was mesmerizing & its completely indescribable. The 600kms journey was completely worth it. We took a couple of pics we even got to see a train leaving rameshwaram. I've made a video of the same but since it was dark it had lot of noise will try to post it later. Here are a couple of snaps we took from Pambam.

    We reached the hotel by 7.30 , checked in & came to know that the Temple will be open till 8.30 , we quickly freshened up & we were off to the temple, took blessing & we headed for saravana bhavan for dinner.
