Here is the detail plan, leave today and stay at uncle's place in navi Mumbai tonight, start early tomorrow and reach to Ahemadabad and meet my dear old friend. Sunday evening check-in into hotel Ramada in pink city Jaipur, a day of site seeing and lots of Rajasthani food. Tuesday visit Tejo Mahalaya in Agra and head towards Delhi, till friday some mind blowing fun at my sis-in-law's place, meet brothers from Royal Beasts and t-bhp. Saturday back in action, longest strech of the tour, 900kms and we reach Indore - stay in hotel Sarovar Portico. Sunday morning Sai Baba darshan in Shirdi and by evening we are back in home, sweet home!!! and Monday onwards usual bakwas life in office...

Default MH-43 Reached Nerul

We started little late at 8.30pm and reached my uncle's place at 10.30pm in Nerul. It was fun drive on express way (Magnum's straight line stability is awesome), it was raining cats and dogs, too much fog on the road and traffic. If that was not enough, my recently fitted Phillips 110/100 bulbs gave up bang in the middle of the highway and when I am cruising at 120kmph, this has happened second time and coincidently when I am on highway and its raining. Damn I will never buy those stupid Phillips bulbs again.

Tomorrow we plan to leave early and head straight towards Ahemadabad, I got the spare set of bulbs with me, need to fix those on highway or somewhere near Surat.

My today's quota of pics, my Magnum roaring to go and rainy situation on express-way.

How was the traffic between Mumbai and Ahemedabad and how long does it usually take to cover this distance? No pics for this leg?

Good beginning, and have a safe trip, throttleking.

On the stretch from Agra to Delhi, be prepared for traffic jams as the south-bound carriageway on NH-2 would be partially taken up by kanwariyas. You're likely to face worse traffic slowdown on your way out of Delhi on the return journey on Saturday (7th Aug.), since the kanwar yatra would be at it's peak then, and all highways going out of Delhi would be utterly messed up.
