    Default South Indian Garland Tour- 5000km, 16 days, 7 states, 1 rider

    By no means ground breaking, nevertheless a personal achievement, this is the tale of Mia (Ninja300) and her rider (me, obviously) trying to garland South India by traveling as close to the coast as practically possible, making new friends, learning new expletives, gaining new insights, and torturing (unintentionally) my beloved Mia along the way...


    Will follow the KISS principle (Keep It Short n Simple)
    Road conditions will be linked on a separate thread to here.

    with my new biker friend Parvez, in Pune, on my way to Solapur-Zaheerabad-Hyderabad.

    Day 1 started with leaving from Panvel towards Hyderabad. On the way, i had a coffee and bun maska with Parvez at Hadapsar, a good half hour well spent, proceeded towards Solapur. The road is beautifully done up.

    On the beautiful Pune Solapur Highway, giving a new name to "sitting like a king"
    I was doing a good 120, an N650 rider passed me at around 150. no, i did not click him.
    the road is good, but i predict it will become bad shortly, there are no flyovers to the villages and they are already growing.
    Solapur onwards is a road work in progress. The pace is good, hopefully it will be done by year end.

    Some random dam on the way to Solapur.

    Went almost 5 km off road just to search for the dam, there was no water, so the whole thing was a downer, especially considering that the road was not at all suitable for my Mia...
    I was (obviously) unable to reach Hyderabad the first night, stayed for the night at Zaheerabad. Next day was spent with relatives in Hyderabad.

    Extortion by kids in the name of Pongal. There were totally 10-12 kids, only these many were ready to get clicked.
    Pocket was lighter by 120 bucks, heart warmer by a 100 degrees.

    Wow, this promises to be a super ride, bring it on. Off special interest to me would be if you can include how the bike performed on such a long ride, road conditions, hotel stays etc.
