Thumbs up 2 guys on Karizmas attempting to cover Kanyakumari to Khardungla in 5 days

Hi,

I just thought this would be interesting to share with you all.2 Guys Karanbir Singh and Pankah Trivedi are trying to gain entry in to the Limca book of records by attempting to cover Kanyakumari to Khardungala in 5 days. They are starting from kanyakumari at 5 p.m. on 26th May.

This is the route they are taking from Kanyakumari they will go to Madurai,Salem,Bangalore and Kurnool before halting at hyderabad.From Hyderabad they will head to Gwalior viaNagpur,Sagar and jhansi.Then they go past agra,delhi,ambala,chandigarh,manali,jispa,sarchu,p ang and upshi before entering the final leg to khardungla via leh.

This is being done under the Gulf OverdriveEndurance Xtreme Challenge 2008.

All the best guys

Yes but on GQ run there were more than two riders so what these guys are attempting is different & quite challenging.

All the best for their K2K endurance attempt

I did Srinagar-Kanyakumari solo in 4 days in my Matiz in 2002. Distance was 3,800 kms.

Day 1: Srinagar-Panipat, delayed because of heavy rains in Punjab and zero-visibility fog

Day 2: Panipat-Sagar

Day 3/4 (non-stop 2-dayer): Sagar-Kanyakumari-Trivandrum

There were no double-roads 6 years ago for most part.

H V Kumar - Driving Log Books - KUMAR'S DRIVING LOG BOOKS Kashmir to Kanyakumari, Dec 2002
This is the log book of that trip.

2 people creating a record in 5 days - even from Khardung la, if planned properly, with today's roads, you could do it in 4 days, with 2 guys driving. Even a solo driver could do it.

I overlooked the bike part. Yes, doing it in a bike is indeed a challenge. Best of luck to them.

pfamilyman, what about that friend of yours - he also did some record speed runs?

I did a 3,000 km run in my 100 cc Suzuki bike solo from Bhutan to Bombay in 1994, in 4 days. Retired from biking after that!

Are they planning on sticking to the speed limit or race recklessly on public roads?

Its one thing to do a fuel economy run on public roads but trying to break a speed/time record is not advisable.
