        Day 1: Hyderabad-Zaheerabad-Sholapur-Pune(560KM)

        Day 1: Hyderabad-Zaheerabad-Sholapur-Pune(560KM)

        Vinod came to my house on the previous night at 11PM, as I stay on Bombay highway, out skirts of the city. We intended to start by 5 AM, but it was almost 6 by the time we started. We knew that first day of our trip is going to be tough along with last day as we need to cover huge distance on the dry roads.

        As the first 30Km up to Sangareddy is 4 lined, roads are totally free but the mist and fog was so thick that nothing was visible on the opposite direction and the vehicles that are infront of us & we are not able to cross 40KMPH due to 0 visibility, we are hardly able to see 100mts ahead, some how we struggled & done 80km by 7:30 & taken our first break before Zaheerabad at Ghar Dhaba to have our breakfast.

        We started by 8:15 & crossed the AP state border & entered Karnataka, for around 80Km we traveled in Karnataka & entered Maharasttra. The roads were good with some truck traffic. We reached Solapur by 11:30 & taken a by pass route. The traffic from here increased along with pollution. The avg speed also came down as heavy carrier trucks & Lorries passing on the both ways & crossing one another. But the best part here is roads were straight without ant curves, so this helped us to cross all those trucks. We have stopped before Indapur at 2 Pm to have our lunch at some dhaba. We have taken some 90mnts break & started at 3.30, still to cover 150 KM. But from Indapur, the roads started becoming worst as the road progress towards Pune. We reached the 4 laned road before pune by 5 PM. It has been 7 by time we reached our friend room in Pune which in the other end of the city.

        There is not much to say on Day1, but will come up with good pics & logs for the coming days

        My Bike ODO just before the start.

          Untill a few years ago I would always tell my friends that I havent done an interstate ride for a long time, and then my girl would pounce on me and remind me about my Goa rides, and I would promptly say Goa is a Union Territory

          But the way its going with creation of "United States of India" I am not sure anymore....
          Next time she argues...show her this...Apart from what i studied in school wiki too says it... Indian states... and this

                Day2::Pune::Panchagan::Mahabaleshwar::154KM

                We thought of starting on day 2 by 8 AM, but we got up only after 8 due to previous day tiredness. After finishing morning chores, we left Pune by 10 AM. After the crossing the tunnel, we have filled or bike bike tank with 12 liters of petrol. Now its time to fill ourselves, dint find any south Indian restaurants. So stopped at some dhaba & had missal pav, wada pav.. They were tasty & some what different from what we have in the morning.,but enjoyed the taste .

                Then again continued with our journey & take right from the GQ towards Mahabaleshwar. Near Panchgani went Harrisons Folly poiny, Sydney point & then to the table land. Taken bike to all the corners of the table land & one couple showed interest of taking a pic with my bike. Views from all these locations were amazing. Had lunch at Pnchgani & started our journey towards Mahabaleshwar. Then covered the Kates Point, Needle Hole Point, Elephant Head Point, Monkey point, Tiger spring, Arthur seat. Taken a bunch of snaps around these points & we were in a confusion to stay over night at Mahabaleshwar or move to Satara. It was already 6:30 & our selves decided to stay at the hill station only..

                We stopped at a shop to buy some water bottles & enquired about rooms. He has guided us with a person, they have taken us to some resort & shown us the room. We like at the first instant & bargained it for Rs 400. Then we went out to do some window shopping & returned back to room after dinner. The food we had at this place is really pathetic. At one shop we bought some chikki & asked the places to visit. He asked us to go to Wilson Point(sunrise point) in the morning & then move on to Tapola.

                            The photos are comparatively pale for that camera. Was it too dry and sunny or were the photos shot in a wrong mode?
