@MC---great pics! Sorry, I will not be able to make it to Suryalanka, however tempting it might be.

OT--I think I side-swiped reddevl_appu while turning left from Rd # 1, B Hills to Rd # 7 in the same manner mobike008 did to me a few months ago ! Sorry man.

No Suryalanka for me either. This heat is simply too much for that part of the country. Even an aircon as wonderful as the Bolero's gives up.

Just the thought of those juicy and delicious prawns that we digged into last time is enough to ignore the scorching heat. Remember ( Not you, the others who came..lol) , we ordered 2 plates and each was Rs.200 and quantity was enough to feed an army.

I am game!

Btw, did you speak to that GM from Haritha Resort for reservations? We should get some rooms facing the ocean. If no, then lets call and get some nice AC rooms booked in advance @Bapatla.

Can't wait to hit the beach

Yes saar---I even told you about it last year. You said you normally do it to get over idiot bikers who intend to go straight, but stick to the extreme left of the road.

No hard feelings---that is such a place where you either side-swipe someone or get side-swiped yourself. In short, a badly-designed circle.

How are the roads now? The last time I travelled(in Jan'11), the drive till vijaywada(NH-9) was pathetic. The roads were full of pot holes(read craters), with single lane traffic crowded with trucks. Road widening was in progress, but wonder if it might have completed by now.

But nevertheless, all the very best for the trip. The prawns are really yummy!!!

This is one of the reasons why I'm out of this ride. I did this route in Dec '10 and it's horrid. I'm sure Ani's new ride will take it all in its stride very easily, though.

The second being that weekend of Apr. 16/17 is a strict no-no. It's wife's birthday so other things are planned beforehand.

@Ani: Good pictures from the NH7 drive meet, man. Do you have any sharp pan shots of Chetan on his beautiful new Ninja? Those would be even better to see!

Regards,
spadix

I have travelled on the NH-9 and its not worth it. We will taking a right from Narkatpalli and travel via Nalgonda, Guntur. The road is devoid of much traffic and travel times will be decent as well.

Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India to Suryalanka Beach - Google Maps
