    Travelogue PUNE - BANGALORE -Solo Ride
    Hi friends,
    Well starting with the 500kms of experience of riding from Pune to my place, which was done by me so many times. But my love with bike riding is not just that enough also I want to explore new places with my bike and more than 500 Kms away and I decided to go to Bangalore. Have had some work but thought that it was the opportunity to go with my pulsar 200NS. And what a Bike...! Superb performance, 3 years old beauty completed it in 14:20 hours including all the halts taken. Total distance covered in this journey was 868Kms from Pune to Bangalore where I was going to stay.
    Amazing experience it was! In which I met many people, Riders and most interesting Mumbiker Nikhil



    The Route and Preparation:
    As it was the longest ride for me, I checked the route first and decided where to take halts. Google maps helps you all for this, map was saying 12 hours but taking all the halts count I was trying to reach to Bangalore in 15 hours as the road is new to me.

    Bought one luggage tying rope for placing my bag on pillion seat. I was fully planned and checked my bike thoroughly, chain tighten up, engine oil changed to my favorite Motul 7100 20w50, checked both tires and brakes. Everything seems to be ready for ride. Picked up my Zeus All Terrain V3 jacket, Helmet, riding gloves, shoes, my bag covered with plastic to prevent from rain, and I was ready at 3:44am in the morning. Here is the First pic while starting.

    pic- satara morning pic-Indian Oil Petrol Pump near KagalAt 11:37AM crossed Hubli:
    After crossing 70kms of amazing Road from Belgam there is a bypass road to hubli nealy around 37Kms. The road started with a toll gate, and big 6 lanes, buttery smooth road gets converted into a small 2 lane road without divider. It was really difficult to ride on that road specially in pick time as the big truck are going in front of you and opposite side vehicles coming directly onto your bike if you are trying to overtake. So after doing with these 37Kms, from Hubli bypass cicle again the 4 lane started with divider. I took a rest for 5 minutes there near Bahubali temple and started again looking for a place to eat something.

    And what a luck I had its MUMBIKAR NIKHIL:pic-Mumbiker Nikhil nad me with his TigerXRx.

    You can see many small hills made by the Ballast Volcano Traps, which are red in color, which were looking awesome.

    After that just before 50Kms from Bangalore, the traffic started increasing on road. Making my way through it reached to my destination at around 6: 30pm.and trip meter showing 868.1Kms

    Speed:
    135kmph TOP
    100Kmph constant without any hustle for most of the time.
    70Kmph average for riding time 12.30 hours

    Mileage: mileage of 40Kmpl overall.



    Return journey will be full of pictures and awesomeness of roads of Bangalore.

                  Good going there. Wanted to know what was the road surface like around Hubli? Specifically that two-lane part which is around 30 km.

                    See the two lane road is a bypass to hubli before hubli... which was awesome in condition just lacking divider...

                    And just after that when 4 lane started you will find road with some uneven surfaces but only few kms otherwise all roads are butteryy....

                      Only these three :-
                      1) Power loss at one steep ascend at Marsimik La = Had to get down from bike and walk with bike in 1st gear for 100-200 feet
                      2) Chain sound at Qazigund = Easily repaired by local mechanic, chain was dry.
                      3) Bike stopped suddenly before Chang La = It was due to less oxygen, waited for 3 minutes, it started again.

                      But I am very satisfied with my Pulsar 200 NS , specially at Ladakh Ride.

                        Nice trip. I too am planning a bike trip from Hyderabad to Kochi with my 200ns. Previously i did some short trips in the range of 500kms, but this one is going to be a lot longer,, about 2000 kms. Any tips for 200NS on highways regarding maintenence. Apart from chain slack which keeps happening to me. Also you mentioned fog lamps, im looking for some good headlights Xeneon HID, osram night breaker or Philips. If you have any idea regarding these, do give a suggestion.

                            2000 kms is quite a large distance still u have to check your bike chain always after 400kms interval and lube it properly.

                            If u r planning to go to such long distance keep a clutch cable extra fitted to your bike.
                            Check tyres before u leave propably these are the main concerns as per me.
                            If ur bike is littlebit aged keep an extra spark plug.
                            Check your engine oil is not too old. Keep it replacing after 5000kms
                            Apart from these the Pulsar NS will never let u down[emoji106]🏻

                            For Fog lamps I have fitted 9led local fog lamps which are quite good in lighting the road. Dont have any idea about good HID.🙁
