    Icon7 Road trip: Mumbai to Chennai.

    Hello guys,

    I am from Mumbai but I'm studying engineering in Chennai. I am planning to get my bike to Chennai in January 2014 from Mumbai. My bike is a 2010 Yamaha FZ16. Initially I was thinking to transport it through railways or a courier system. Then my father gave me an idea to drive the bike all the way from Mumbai to Chennai. I have very little experience of biking and I thought this is a great idea for me to learn more about my bike.
    I want to know if anyone else has done a road trip from Mumbai to Chennai. How much time it will take and where should I take a stop? Also, what is the procedure to get an NOC for driving a bike registered to another state? Currently I'm in my third year of engineering and I will be riding it in Chennai for the next 1.5 years.

    For the query on NOC, check out the Interstate bike transfer thread.
    Biking is not about what you have between your legs, its all about how well you use it!!!!!!!

    I guess Mumbai to Bangalore and Bangalore to Chennai would be ideal enough.

    Getting angry at somebody is the same as getting angry with a bike that just won't go. You should stop and start thinking.
    A good mechanic will let you watch even without charging you for it. | Riding faster than everyone else only guarantees youll ride alone.

    It is funny to know that we've been imitated and copied so well
    and surprising when we notice our mistakes are copied as well.

    Mumbai to Chennai approximately, 1350 Km; do the math as how many hours can you keep your endurance, what speeds can you keep depending on which you should get you average speed & thus will be able to calculate time taken

    Mumbai - Lonavala - Pune - Satara - Kholapur - Nipani - Belgaum - Dharwad - Hubli - Davangere - Chitradurga - Hiriyur - Tumkur - Nelamangala - NICE - Hosur - Shoolagiri - Chinnar - Krishnagiri - Vaniyambadi - Ambur - Vellore - Kanchipuram - Chennai

    On a FZ16, here's what I would do...

    Mumbai - Lonavala - Pune - Satara - Kholapur - Refuel & B'Fast
    Kholapur - Nipani - Belgaum - Dharwad - Hubli - Haveri - Davangere - Refuel; if you can carry lunch, you can have it somewhere in between
    Davangere - Chitradurga - Hiriyur - Tumkur - Nelamangala - NICE - Hosur - Shoolagiri - Refuel & Dinner
    Shoolagiri - Krishnagiri - Vaniyambadi - Ambur - Ranipet - Vellore - Kanchipuram - Chennai

    It's headache; avoid it; if you're still interested, we'll discuss about it.
