@sforsarang, thanks for reminding me of avoiding the monsoons. Gives me more reason to put off my Bangalore Mumbai Scorpio trip to the rainless winter months

Regarding limiting the speed, too, I agree with you 100%.

The last point (spotting the familiar TBHP sticker) would have provided some cheer, I am sure, on the trip.

In all, I think you will be getting the satisfaction of sharing the details of this trip and helping others with these tips, for sure. Thanks

Yeah thats right mooza...more than satisfaction, I will be glad if someone chooses to drive within safe limits and sanely after reading my trip experiences... I want to spread this message that roads and cars and tyres in India are not meant to be safe for a 100+ drive.. and its not fun either...
