Find a road. I'm bored of Krishnagiri and Mulbagal. Time to get a nicer ride too.

Hey adit1329,
Whats the surprise? Let me guess, sure sounds like you managed to find yourself a OHC VTEC which is what you were after.

Oh No, not on the 26th as we ...deleted...

Cheers
Santhosh

Stick to the topic, which is Bangalore T-BHP drive. Also don't discuss private drags on this forum.

Few weeks back I went on a official trip on the Tumkur road...seemed fine. And I am bored of the Krishnagiri-Jwalarpet route...been there four times in 3 months. Give some details about the sakleshpur ghat...don't forget I am new to the city.

On a second thought, how about driving upto Yelagiri on the Krishnagiri-Jwalarpet route ? At Jwalerpet, one has to take right and drive for 15-20 mins and then start climbing upto Yelagiri. 14 hairpin bends and if Rudra is with us, we can do some great photosessions on that scenic uphill road. Even Samurai has got himself a new digicam which can be put to test. We can have lunch at Yelagiri (there are decent number of hotels), rest for a while and then drive back...260 kms from BTM to BTM.

What say ?

any ghat rd is fine ....if its some 4 lane highway ..i am out ...
abt sakleshpur ghat ..its on the nh48 to mangalore abt 40 kms after hassan ..its a 12 kms ghat section where u can do fast in and faster outs ...

teh nh48 is a superbb drivers road ..its actually a 2 lane highway with oncoming traffic ...but there are stretches where u can max out your speedo

thank god speedy isnt recommending his favourite Ankola road yet!

How far is Sakleshpur Ghat?

Anyone been down Mysore road or Kanakpura road recently?

Or, we can drive down to Krishnagiri and from there, take the Pondicherry road? though it will be one long-ish drive...

Cheers
