I have travelled more than 1000kms + as part of Solo driving just couple of weeks before my wedding. I had to attend my close friend's wedding in Bimmavaram, so I took my trust worthy Laura, started Bangalore around 5pm, took Kolar - Tirupati - Nellore - Vijayawada - Bimmavaram route.

I had reached Vijayawada around 7am in the morning, picked up a relative of my would be married friend, headed to Bimmavaram.

Attended the wedding, which was around 1am in the morning and started my journey around 2am back to Vijayawada and reached Hyderabad.

Stayed at my relatives place for 3 days, doing my wedding shopping and distributed invite cards. I headed back to Bangalore from Hyderabad.

In total, I must have travelled more than 3000kms, let me tell you, it was good in a way but also was tiring due to my busy schedule.

Drove from Milwaukee to Charlotte (880 miles) with the night stop at Louisville, KY. started on 31-Dec-12 and reached 1-Jan-13. Took me about 14 hours on road. And all this while driving my trusted 12 year old 2000 Protege with 153K miles on the odo, braving rain, snow, fog and winds !!

If you're talking about longest solo drive/ride as a single trip, then here are my figures.

Long drive - 1250 kms one way - hyderabad-kanyakumari. (Figo)
Long ride - 1570 kms - Delhi - Hyderabad. (CBR)

If its a cumulative solo distance, Then it's over 10k kms for sure!

Traveled 900 KM

Started from Moradabad (U.P.) and went to Etawah via aligarh and agra.

But, took NH2 and NH24 for return journey via delhi as aligarh to moradabad route is not for night.

1500+kms - Started at Bangalore & ended at Chennai, drove all the way down into Varkala beach, Kerala, through various mountains, streams & waterfalls. Crossed into TN through Shencottah, Kanyakumar, Rameshwaram, and capped it up with a single day Rameshwaram to Madras ride through the coast.

All this was done across 25+ days in December 2006, on my trusted Enfield Thunderbird. Zero breakdowns, Zero punctures.

I was riding solo on my Pulsar 180.


-A few days back, I covered 364 kms while on a trip to Shivanasamudra falls in a single day. I was again on my P180.


- Last year we covered 670 kms on my uncle's Pajero in a single day. The very next day I took my brother's Scorpio for a 370 km trip.
