Amazing amazing amazing man! Loved it! You car looks beautiful (my younger brother has the same one) in all the photos. Loved seeing photos of Jharkhand and Jampot (my home town)! Love seeing the vegetation and surrounding and building change through your epic trip and the photos. India truly is a huge and diverse country and you are blessed to have done a road trip like this.

Thanks a lot Doc.

Our country is indeed beautiful and I am glad to have visited a lot of places to admire this beauty. I have plenty of photographs in and around Jamshedpur to make you feel nostalgic, will show it to you during our next Team BHP meet.

Thanks bro. I had done something equally spontaneous (read: crazy ) about 10 years ago when in between jobs I had just picked up my Bullet (Doppie), packed a duffel bag and bungeed it to the pillion seat, bought a TTK map book from the railway station, and set out to ride around the country solo in the winter of 2004.

This was the final route with the night halts (hope it shows here) -

https://maps.google.co.in/maps?saddr...mra=ls&t=m&z=5

I was on the road for 21 days, Pune to Pune. In that time me and Doppie crossed 14 states, covering around 8500 kms in 13 riding days. The rest were stop-overs with my college batchmates around the country, all of them in the forces, as well as some RnR in the chilly mountains in Himachal.

Your thread made me relive those days afresh. Some of the photos, the routes, the places.

Here are some of mine -

Sorry for hijacking. Just got nostalgic!

Wow 8500 kms across the country is an incredible fete Doc.

I would love to read more about it, or maybe listen to the stories when we meet. Riding to Kasol a decade back would mean you were probably the only Indian tourist among the Israeli clan, I guess.

Loved seeing the pic of Loyola School. I can just imagine how nostalgic it would have been to travel pan-India on a motorbike and getting a pic clicked with your alma-mater. A big thumbs-up to you !!

Only one word comes to my mind: Crazy !! (ofcourse in a positive way)

@//M - Many congratulations, It's quite an achievement. Must say.

I did Mumbai to Goa solo ride in 2010, using the coastal highway.
The creek crossing from Murud - Diveagar did not carry 4-wheelers then.
I understand from your travelogue that barges have been introduced now, which is a good thing.

I will be embarking on a bike ride on the long weekend doing the Mumbai-Goa circuit again. Your travelogue has helped immensely since I intend to do the ride on my Ninja 650.
