    Day 1: Avadi(Chennai) to Bellary(Karnataka)

    Started off from Avadi and filled the tanks and our stomach. After reaching somewhere after Tirupati(Andra Pradesh) we noticed a flat tire in Thunderbird. Finally found a mechanic and the tragedy is that it is a rear one and they have no idea about a rear tyre with disc brake. We our self got some ideas from youtube videos and somehow removed the tyre, the critical part is refitting it and adjusting the brake, Thanks to Vivek he got up with some ideas and we somehow sorted it out. Had our lunch there and started again

    Somewhere near Tirupati

    The roads are in mixed condition, Tarmac for some distance and rough roads mixed with rolling stones for some kms. Roads surrounded with quarry for some kms and forest for some kms. Atlast reached Bellary by 10 - 10:30pm and started hunting for room, after 30 mins found a decent lodge which costs 600 per night.

    Day 2: Bellary to Hampi

    Waked up the next morning early as there was a function in a temple which is adjacent to our room. Packed our bags and started from Bellary by 9am and had breakfast in a small hotel which is next to our room. There was industries and factories all the way to Hampi, and the roads are patchy as it was a industrial area.

    Reached Hampi by 11:30am, there are foreigners every where wandering and riding bicycle. We stopped our Enfields and started exploring the ruins

    The boys are tempted to take a bath as they saw a river and I decided to stay ashore and take care of our belongings.

    After the bathing session we decided to have lunch and found a hotel which is filled with pretty ladies but our bad luck it was full and we have to wait, as it is already getting late and we have to explore more we changed our mind and had lunch in the next hotel.
