My longest drive without break has been Pune to Belgaum (330 kms) way back in 2004 in my Alto, fully loaded. We started by 7am from Pune and reached Belgaum by lunch time.

Mumbai to Chennai - 1340 kms in 16 hours. Solo drive. But I did have break for 40 mins each for breakfast, lunch and dinner and 10 mins for tea and 10 mins each for tanking up twice on the route.

Bangalore - Surat (1250 Kms) last October but with 2 Very long breaks and 2 refueling breaks. Started from Bangalore at 4-30am and reached Surat at 11-30pm

A non-stop Pune-Hubli in Dec 2009 without a single break except one for a refill and then all the way to Bangalore. It was an all night drive and winter ensured even the roadside chaiwala hadn't put his shop whenever we thought of sipping in some hot tea. But we carried loads of nuts and carrots to munch all the way.

Did Hyderabad to Chennai with only one break for refueling the car. Was driving alone in the night and that too taking my doggy with me so could not take a break. I know it was total stupidity but could not evade the situation.

I have taken LB Nagar - Ibrahim Patnam - Nagarjuna Sagar - Macherla - Karempudi - Addanki - Ongole - Nellore - Tada - Chennai.

There are two routes to reach Addanki from Karempudi. As that was my first time on that road one guy has guided me towards Vinukonda. The whole journey took 10 hours for me. The road from Hyderabad - Macherla is in good condition. After Macherla the road is not in a good condition till you cross Addanki. After crossing Addanki you will enter GQ and the road is excellent. But if you want to travel in that route I would suggest you to take Nakerikallu route instead of Vinukonda. That road is in more doable condition that the one I have taken.

480 Kms without a break. Had to stop for fuel!

Did 1100 kms in that drive from Bangalore to Mumbai. Did 1050 kms in some 12 hours, inclusive of fuel/food breaks. The last 50 kms from Expressway exit to home took me 3 hours! LoL!

1,010 km within 24 hours on my bike. Route was Mumbai-Belgaum-Mumbai. Took several short breaks for food/fuel/photos.

This ride was done just for the sake of riding 1,000 km in a day. A saddle sore (1,600 km in 24 hours) is beyond my abilities.

@highway_star:: I was eyeing the Ironbutt but will definitely need a Bullet 500 or beyond.. Lets see if I'm able to achieve this in 2012.
