Thanks NPV.

In 2013 I traveled Sirsi - Sagar - Shimoga and the route was superb. The Sagar area had the best surfaced road I have traveled in India (which is not much)! Since it seemed to have been built with care, I presume it is still in good condition. I believe Yediyurappa is from that area, and when he was CM, ensured good quality roads.

Decisions, decisions!

(Not) to confuse you further - the Chitradurga-Shimoga road work has progressed quite well now so that's an option too instead of Tumkur-Arsikere-Shimoga and Nelamangala-CR Patna-Arsikere-Shimoga.
Once you turn off from NH 48 at Chitradurga, not many options for breaks, one option is Mysore Cafe near nijalingappa memorial but it is just after the NH13 turn off so you have to make a U-turn to get back. If taking Haveri route, Mysore Cafe is en route.
If you take Nelamangala route you can stop at Swathi delicacy yediyur or Mayura Bellur cross.

Thanks NPV. It'll either be Arsikere - Shimoga - Sagara route from Mysore or if from Bangalore, NH48 till Haveri, then on to Sirsi.

Thanks for the info on eating joints, will save for this trip and future use!

Do you have plans to visit places in Gokarna (Om beach, the temple, etc) and Mysore (the zoo, Brindavan gardens, palace, etc) ?
Reason I'm asking is since you've got these 2 places in both your options so wondering what routes you actually have in mind ?
For Goa/chorla, when going from Bangalore you need not go via either Gokarna nor Mysore and hence my question

You can probably take Mysore out of that equation (Hope it was not a typo). It can be covered as a weekend trip (I see your location is Bangalore).

Gokarna is on the list of my places to visit.

The check in time for resorts are typically noon; If I travel from Bangalore to Windernest ; it may be a long drive; so was planning to take a evening break in either Gokarna or Belgaum...While coming back also; may halt one day in Gokarna...

I have a place in Mysore; I have to pick up my pet dog on the way back so need to be there.

You can probably try this routing:
Onward:Bangalore-Haveri-Sirsi-Kumta (bypass)-Mirjan-Gokarna.
Then, Gokarna-Karwar-Wildernest Resort, Chorla

Return:Wildernest-Dharwad-Hubli-Davanagere (regular NH 48/4 route).
I think you have 2 options after this - either take the Hiriyur-Huliyar route or take the Sira route, maybe @ampere or others can help here with a recommendation based on current conditions.
You can also refer this thread - Link

Forking out of GQ at Hiriyur is what I will opt here instead of Sira.

The road conditions are good as of 2 weeks back when my friend drove to Waynad from Pune.

So it will be Hiriyur - Huliyar - Kibbanahalli Cross - Turuvekere - BG Nagar - Nagamangala - Pandavapura - Srirangapatna - Mysore
