Dear tazmaan,

Cool!

Whether the cycle fits or not - either way - please take a snap and share it here!

I have a feeling that - if the cycle is not BIG - it should fit.

So, I hope I have convinced you to take the Jazz!

Thats an awesome trip and nice pictures to go along. I should do it once too!!

Since I have the Jazz CVT in my radar, can you please give some details on how the car behaved in 'D' and 'S' mode with the paddles? How the car behaved when you wanted to quickly close a gap in traffic, when you want to pass a vehicle quickly, which situation demanded to move to 'S' mode and so on?

Excellent write up and quite detailed itinerary. Enjoyed the journey via your description. Infact read it twice

What was the route taken from Maravanthe to Jog? Did you take a right turn to leave the NH at Bhatkal? or did you go Via Kollur by taking a right to leave the NH at Khambadakone?

Thank you for reading and liking it.


I did turn in from Bhatkal and that was the best turn I took.

The Jazz performed very well. I was travelling light not much weight. The D mode was good but S mode is addictive. I would go ahead and say Jazz without paddle shift CVT is a waste. The S mode and paddle shift transforms the car.

Gaps are easy to close if you are willing to rev.

Jazz @ 2000 rpm and Jazz at 5000 rpm is not the same car. Trust me experience it, I do have the accord and characteristics of 1.2 engine is same as 2.4 engine. They love to be revved period.

The cycle fits but without the parcel trey. I did take the Jazz. The milage this time around was exactly identical to what I got during solo trip i.e. 14.5 and like previous trip the return journey was more efficient. It has to do with downhill return routes I guess.

Try removing the handle bar and you might be able to fit it with the parcel tray in place, if at all you need the parcel tray. Also try removing the support wheels on either side so that the cycle can be put flat in the boot to accommodate luggage if necessary.

BTW that was a nice travelogue , I should try out a solo long drive, though I'm skeptical for a long time now. Had a chance to go for a 700 KM drive, but roped in a friend at the last moment, some where I do not feel comfortable doing solo, anyways travelogues like yours might change that apprehension and motivate me to take the solo drive

Dear tazmaan,

Thanks for sharing the photo.
The cycle actually looks cute in the back!
14.5 kmpl is a good average. It speaks volumes about your driving style and skills!

Amazing pics.

Iam from Dandeli, yes the prices of the hotels/resorts are too high there.

Its a tourist place, where you can do water rafting and safari.
