    Default Wah Taj and Mesmerizing Nainital - 3800 kms, 10 days, 6 states and a Couple on two different Bikes

    Hello Travellers,

    After our(Me and Wife's) maiden ride to Leh in June 2015, this was the recent ride of us to Agra and Nainital, covering 3800 kms in 10 days, and riding through through 6 states(MH-MP-UP-UK-RJ-GJ).

    Our initial plan was to just ride through NH3 till Agra see Tajmahal and return via NH8 in 5 to 6 days, and dates were finalised from 1st to 6th January 2016, and i started drafting our route planning by taking help of friends on FB list and the bigger community HVK FB forum.

    And the twist in the story came around 20th December 2015 and Kiran(Wife) said to me why not take two more days of leave which 7,8th January and see Nainital also, and leaves got approved and completed the route planning.

    Ride Dates: 1 January 2016 to 10th January 2016

    Day1 : Airoli (Mumbai) - Nashik - Dhule - Indore (567 KMs)
    Day2: Indore - Bhopal - Sanchi - Vidisha - Kurwai - Bina - Malthone - Lalitpur - Jhansi (554approx. kms)
    Day3 : Jhansi - Gwalior - Agra (Approx 223 kms)
    Day4 : Agra - Yamuna Express Highway - Gr. Noida - Gaziabad - Hapur - Moradabad - Rampur - Rudrapur - Haldwani - Nanital (Approx 450 kms)
    Day5 : Rest in Nainital
    Day6 : Nainital - Rampur - Moradabad - Hapur - Gr Noida - YEH - Mathura/Vrindavan (500)
    Day7 : Mathura - Bharatpur - Dausa - Jaipur (235KMs)
    Day8 : Jaipur - NH8 - Udaipur (400 KMs)

    A very brief introduction about the riders mentioned below:

    Sachin Desai thats me and I was riding the brand new Mahindra Mojo for this ride and I have rode to Rajasthan and Leh, Ladakh in June 15 with Electra 350.

    Kiran(wifey) Riding her beloved Saffy(Bajaj Avenger 220), she have been riding pillion with me till Rajasthan ride until she got bored as a Pillion rider and got herself Bajaj Avenger and rode with me to the every riders dream destination Leh, Ladakh(This story, she will cover in an another thread).

    Coming back to this ride, all the required planning was done related to routes and road conditions, halts, places to visits and things to buy,
    Some of the new riding gears were purchased, we always love to shop riding gears or anything related to bikes and the list goes like this, For Kiran SOL Unicorn helmet and Spartan Perseus knee guards and for me MT blade helmet, Spartan Ares full gauntlet gloves, Spartan Odysseus touring pants, and we were all set to hit the road.

    DAY 1 , 1 Jan 2016, Mumbai To Indore

    Route : Mumbai Nashik - Dhule - Indore (567 KMs)
    Road conditions: Mumbai to Nashik, lots of truck traffic and speed breakers, roads were good though,
    Nashik to Dhule Speed breakers and diversions, roads were good.
    Dhule to Indore Excellent 4 lane roads

    No matter how many long or short rides you do, theres always an excitement/anxiety for every ride and no matter you plan to sleep by 11 pm in the night it never happens, we were done with our dinner and packing saddle bags and tank bag and kept all the things in the living area and went for sleep while everyone was busy partying whole night, as we couldnt sleep early we woke up late, hence ride started little late and it was slow till Nashik as trucks gave us hard time to speed up, we had Pohe, Omlet, and some Veg pakodas somewhere after Nashik, we love to eat, and eat a lot.

    The ride continued at moderate speeds till Dhule as there were lots of diversions and speed breakers which were very painful, but after Dhule we picked up good speeds as we were welcomed by 4 lane roads without diversions and hardly any speed breakers, we rode for almost 4 to 5 hours with water breaks and photo breaks and thought of skipping lunch as we might get late and did not wanted to ride in dark, and we were 80 kms away from Indore and it was 5 pm and We could not control our hunger but couldnt find good restaurant, hence pulled just besides roadside dhaba and had the best lunch of our life Bhindi and Tawa roti with lots of onion for only 110 INR.

    Our favourite vegetable (Bhindi)


    After sumptuous lunch we continued and reached Indore by 7 pm and found good Hotel for 1200 INR, unloaded the luggage, had a chat with hotel owner answered his questions like where you are going? From where you are coming? Why you both are riding different bikes? and lot many, I answered them with patience and after taking bath we went to see Rajwada and Sarafa Bazaar for some lip smacking Chat items, Rajwada was average but we had a blast in Sarafa bazaar eating all junk items, after eating there we returned to our Hotel and called it a day.

    DAY 2, 2 Jan 2016, Indore to Jhansi (554 kms)

    Route taken : Indore Bhopal Sanchi Vidisha Kurwai Bina Malthone Lalitpur Jhansi
    Road conditions : Indore to Bhopal Awesome six/Four lane roads,
    Bhopal, Sanchi, Vidisha Two lane roads with some potholes
    Vidisha to Malthone Two lane roads, with absolute good tarmac.
    Malthone to Jhansi Runway like 6 lane roads

    After much needed rest on the first day of the calendar, we tried to woke up by 5 am, but those 5 mins which we always say to us when grown ups or to moms when we were kids turned into 30 mins and day2 started by 6.30 am, had some pohe at the hotel itself and left by taking good wishes from hotel owner and cook(Kind people everywhere),

    Somewhere near Sirohi

    and immediately we were on the nice 6 laned highway, feeling fresh and cold air onto us, todays target was quick visit to Sanchi Stupa enroute and reach Jhansi before dark and we continued towards Dewas, refueled and the super awesome roads were there till Bhopal, after Bhopal roads started deteriorating and suddenly 6 lane road became two lane, and we dodged multiple potholes and speed breakers, and the difficulty level were doubled as local biker and cars come on the roads suddenly without any indicators not even hand signals and they dont even realise their mistakes, by noon we reached Sanchi Stupa, bought tickets and rode our bike till the gate, and here we saw huge stupas and oldest stone structure in India, which was originally commissioned by the emperor Ashoka the Great in the 3rd century BCE, this reminded us of shanti stupa of Leh City.

    We saw some Ladakhi people and greeted them with Julley and trust me if you say a hello to a person in their language on the place where they least expect it, their faces lit up with Huge smiles, we sat on the bench in front of beautiful stupa did some photo session, had some biscuits and bananas and left, till Vidisha the roads were average, after crossing Vidisha we saw some nice landscapes and roads became much better too and we could cover the distance with three digit speeds, again we decided to delay the lunch in order to cover the distance and somewhere between Bina and Malthone we stopped by some local dhaba and had a good meal(always tell the cook to prepare a meal with less chilly on these local dhabas, else your stomach goes for toss )

    We continued our ride through small villages of Madhya Pradesh and after Malthone we took a left turn to be on NH26 and trust me it is one of the finest 6 lane in the country, but the scariest part on this road till Agra is people drive on wrong side, you will say, so what, it happens in every city and every state of the county, but on this particular road people drive their Trucks, tempos, tractor and even bikes on Wrong Direction! on Fast lane of your directions, as if they are driving on foreign countries with Left hand Drive vehicles, and the worst thing about some is that they dont even switch on their headlights and you wont understand until you are 15 to 20 meters closer to them, thankfully Xbhp guy whom I met on HVK Mumbai Whatsapp Group informed us regarding this while planning our ride, our big thanks to Apratim Banerjee for letting us know about this.

    Things were becoming scary as sun was going down and visibility was getting lower and fog has started appearing, and we were thinking whether to ride in the dark with such scenarios where chances of getting banged from rear and front are high, we quickly had a tea just besides a Petrol pump and refueled bikes and us both and decided that we will ride at a moderate speeds on middle lane so that if anyone comes from first lane on opposite direction we can dodge them, we were going with 80ish speeds and suddenly one Honda City overtook us from left and disappeared in no time, we continued with slow and steadily and suddenly saw road with full of people and two three cars parked on the sides, we slowed down and just gave a look and for our shock the same Honda City met with an accident with one tractor from opposite direction, both the Airbags were deployed in it, fortunately nothing happened to the lucky driver, and he was checking his nose must have banged on the Airbags and was checking whether he is bleeding from nose or not, we did not stopped and continued for about 50 odd kms and, we were still 90 kms from Jhansi and took a quick water break, ate some chocolates and put Thermal liners inside our jackets for cold, restarted our journey by repeatedly taking all the gods name we know, it gives so much positivity and courage in such situations, and finally reached Jhansi city, removed some cash from and found hotel near railway station for 1100 INR, had dinner thanked Gods, called our parents, told them our whereabouts and collapsed.

    Tomorrow is going to be super exciting day as we will reach Agra to see one of the charismatic architectural monument The Taj Mahal and to see it we have to ride through one of the dangerous places of India (Chambal Ghati)
