One word for your bro - RESPECT.
Take a bow for this big adventure, and most importantly, ALONE !!

I am sure your ride and you must have shared wonderful moments all along the trip !! Eagerly waiting for the logs of the remaining days, especially since you mentioned that Day 3 onwards it gets exciting !!

Great log. Amazing tour. A bike trip panning across the Northern and Eastern parts of India is my coveted dream...though I have a very humble Honda but I would love to do it once in my lifetime.

And you boss, you are the man! 8K plus kms on a bike in a single tour is just not a child's play. Requires concentration & determination, and both levels should be surpassing each other frequently.
Waiting for the entire log to unfold. Keep safe!

Regards,
Saket

Well Preetam,that was one hell of a ride for starters. Hope you do much more rides in the future.

Its not everyone's cup of tea to do solos on bikes on Indian roads.But with the infrastructure improving,more and more bikers are hitting the roads.Ofcourse travelling in a group has its benefits but doing a solo makes one feel "One" with the universe.One can pace his ride and enjoy his trip whichever way he wants .It also helps that one has a trusty machine which enjoys gobbling up the miles without any breakdowns.

A well written and well planned trip by Preetam i must say.The snaps just added to the narration and hoping to read the whole trip .

Many more hard riding trips bro'

Great start to the travelogue. Your prologue is excellent. Ever considered being a writer for one of the travel magazines?? I am sure they will be queuing to sign you up once they read this one!

Please can you change your rule of 1 day - 1 write up?? I am sure there are other fellow bhpians who are avidly waiting for you to pen down your dream adventure asap

Wow!
Fantastic.

My jaw required the help of my hands to return back to its 'un-dropped' state.
Hatsoff to you.
For the courage in taking on such a arduous task, and for the execution of the task at hand.

Needless to say, I envy you.
Reasons are understood right?

It's been my dream to drive from Kochi to Leh. I am still contemplating the decision being the distance involved.
And here, you have done 8400 + kms on a bike.

You took the winds out of my lungs buddy
Cheers.

Fantastic write up.
Looking forward to your wonderful pics

Hey Preetham, I would say I have become a fan of you man. Seriously you have made a tremendous journey, that too on 2 wheels and especially on a Bajaj(No Offense).

And hats off to your writing skills, I was totally involved and I felt I was on my bike and doing this journey. Trust me, will not leave a single word from your travelogue and I can say I will be a regular follower of your posts.

Since you said you stay in Bangalore, would like to catch up and congratulate in person man

You deserve a bow from all the riders.

I have just one word to describe this - amazing. It requires guts to even think of something like this but you had done it on two wheels and on top of it alone. Hats off to you bro. Eagerly waiting to read more.

Hell ya !!!

One hell of a trip it must have been.

Accolades to your dedication, devotion and passion not only for riding but proving the fact that " the journey is always important and satisfactory than the destination"

I am sure you are an inspiration for many of us on board.
