        I think you would have already made the saddle sore on your first journey. But I am sure you don't have proofs.

        Now, the above plan of yours ia a perfect saddle sore item. 1700 odd KMs, mostly GQ with about 150 KMs of bad stretch, you already did it once so know something about the road... pls plan well and get the proofs along for saddle sore. All the best.

          Proofs for the saddle sore...? Do you mean the Iron Butt Association (IBA) ?

            @ hydbiker - as the toll gate people dont charge toll for the bike other wise i would have the proof, i have already done chennai - agra in 24 hour in my car and i have proof of that, now i have decided that once i reach the first toll gate i will tell them to chrage me and when i reach last toll gate there also i will tell them to charge me, then i will have the proof.

              Mate, your pics would have time stamp on it. So there come your proofs

                Same here. The six lane highway is just mind blowing. If possible do it during daytime. If possible early morning. The views of both sides are superb. We often do this stretch just to have breakfast at Kharagpur/Kolaghat.

                          yeah so plan it out well if u do it. it wont be fun as much as touring but purely an endurance race and stressful so to speak. but it would be more fun to just tour and take it easy. but if your gonna attempt a saddlesore make sure u plan it out well and execute it! good luck to you!

                              GQ in 5 days very very difficult. It's close to 6000km. That makes it almost next to impossible in 5 days. I do not want to dishearten you bro. But think 100 times before you do this.

                                Iron Butt Association needs proofs in terms of electronic bills from petrol pumps or ATM receipts that show date, time and location. Not sure of toll receipts but most of our toll rceipts are not electronic bills and don't depend on them...
