Bombay - Tumkur

Left Bombay at 9:30 in the night, drove to Karad, slept there and left at 8:30 in the morning.

Reached Tumkur at about 6:30 in the evening. Close to 900 kms in about 22 hours, including a 6 hour break.


Recently, weekend of Jan 26, did a Bangalore - Goa - Sawantwadi-Kolhapur - Pune - Badlapur (close to Bombay) run on my Karizma (Oct 05), over two days. Did the return journey in 16 hours over two days as well Badlpur-pune-Kolhapur - Belgaum (R&R) Belgaum - Hubli - Tumkur - Bangalore

I was accompanied by my cousin on his P180 Classic.

we regularly covers delhi-simla in under 6 hrs.

its a distance of about 350+ kms one side, with abt 100kms in hills.

4 leisurely hours on NH1 and then abt 1.5 hrs on hills.
never ever felt to rip the roads in such serene surroundings.

Mumbai to Goa in 9.5 hrs in Bolero. Started at 22:30 hrs and reached 7:30 am (around)

Recently 1 month back I went to Goa. Hired a Bolero and left by 22:15 and 10 mins were enough or more actually to know that he was drunk. So I being the only one who knows driving had to take the wheel. We couldn’t avoid going as our appointments were fixed with people in Goa. Started at 22:30 from Mumbai Central and drove all the way to Goa. Reached there at 7:30 am. But due our work I had to roam around in as well as outskirts of Goa. Finally, rested the car at 13:30 hrs.
So drove continuously for around 15 hrs Driving Bolero was quite an experience and car was almost new only 800 kms done. Never driven a Bolero and I hate driving at night and especially 2 lane highway; I did pretty well, didn’t I?
