I saw your SMS for the same, but could not join you guys. Had back ache and avoiding bike drive for long distances for some time.

That would have been a good ride.

April 4th (monday) being a holiday on account of Ugadi had us riding to Coorg for the long weekend.

We stayed here which is a very nice cozy homestay. Highly recommended as the rooms are super clean, food is very homely and cooked to perfection. I've been here earlier and have recommended this place to my friends and relatives.

Here are some pics (lots actually ).

The homestay has a lot of flowering plants and greenery so we went berserk with our camera's.

The dog's in the pic below belong to the homestay and are very docile and friendly. The couple also have a spotted dalmation, a german shephard, and more. All very well trained and forever hungry. lol

Few more pics. We visited Dubare Elephant Camp and the Tibetan monastry.

Scrumptious beef momo's and beef noodles was the main reason to ride to Kushalnagar.

Thanks Abhinav. We left Blore on 2nd morning and returned on the 4th. Left the homestay on 4th morning and reached home by afternoon.

Thanks Prashant. We had a blast.

We must have covered some 600 odd kms (both ways) including a longer route on the way back to avoid a bad 40 km ride through the Nagerhole forest. The chennai riders would have covered an additional 350 kms from Blore to Chennai.

Well on the personal question, i used to ride every weekend. Now its only once every fortnight so no complaints from the better half. I strongly fight the urge to ride out every weekend though. Mostly its a breakfast ride where i leave before sunrise and return by noon.

Overnight trips are planned for once every 2 months so its not a problem either.

The 12th pic from the last set, (A green 250-R on a trail early morning) gets my vote.

Splendid shot that one.

Great pics there! The food is the first thing that comes to mind whenever I think of Coorg

Normally, how long do you guys take to reach Coorg? The homestay looks like a nice place indeed.

We left at 6am and reached at 1pm. This included tons of pit stops which easily amounted to around 3 hrs. If one is determined to reach early then with limited stops, the trip should be doable in 4 hours max.

On one previous occasion I left my home in Blore at 6am and reached mysore (Mylari's hotel for breakfast) at 7.30 am which included a 15 minute break for tea / water. On sunday evenings it would take double the time to cover the same distance back home. The distance from Blore to Mysore is around 145 kms.
