    yes it is.. my frnd did a round trip to mangalore recent past.. he said ppl say roads are not good.. but it is actually for 4 wheelers or buses.. when u go on bike u can actually avoid most of the bad patches..
    If u ask me no harm in trying it now..

    Bangalore-Mangalore roads via the route that you are planning to take is in very bad shape especially the Ghats section after Sakleshpur. Even after ghats the bad roads continue all the way till Mangalore. I had travelled over the weekend and this is the latest update

    The other route that you can take is Bangalore- Hunsur-Madikeri- Puttur- Mangalore.

    Again this route is also bad and is more or less equal to Bangalore- Hassan - Mangalore Route.
    Kerala Road Transportation takes Bangalore- Mysore- Virajpet- Kanhangad route. I have never explored this route but other members in the forum might be able to help.

    I have attached few links which might be of your help.

    Bangalore- Kanhangad - Karsargod- Mangalore

    448 km about 7 hours 49 mins.

    Bangalore- Hunsur-Puttur- Mangalore

    442 km about 8 hours 15 mins

    Bangalore- Hassan- Mangalore

    351 km about 6 hours 20 mins

    I would suggest this route:

    Bangalore->Mysore->Hunsur->Kushalnagar-Madikeri-Mangalore.

    Route from B'lore to Kushalnagar is in good shape and then you'll encounter some really bad roads upto Sampaje about 35+kms from Madikeri. Then the road tends to get better for a while. Generally a easier but longer route.

    Alternatively you can also ride down on the Bangalore-Hassan-Mangalore route. Its bad but you'll make it here quicker.

    Thanks MA, Kwok...

    i will surely check with these routes as well... i was chatting with Santoosh and he too suggested me a route via belur avoiding Saklespur...

    please check this link....

    My Saved Places - Google Maps


    It is around 400km and takes upto 7 hours.. not sure how the roads are but surely an option better than the normal saklespur route

    If you dont mind to travel about 70 more KM the best scenic way will be through Bisli ghat.
    The rout is not good when it come to surface but it is the best when it come to scenic beauty and the traffic is also very low.
