    Looks like a great ride. Makes you dream to go on adventure.

    Life is too short to be wasted at working so hard and not putting enough to leisure.. too bad we also need money to fulfil our dreams.

    Hi Udhaya,

    Thats quite an enduring mile munching ride you had there. Yet u managed to visit quite some places and the coverage is in pretty good detail. Liked the composition of the pictures.

      where did you take rest first in this trip and also after that?

      I am just eager to know this. How many hours you continously drive on the road?

      Very Good. Daring to do this kind from south. How did you manage your food and bath?.

        My first stop at Vijayavada(AP), Generally I will try to reach some town and find the hotel to stay.

        Continues ride – Its purly depends on ride plan, it means for target place in a day. First day I spend my morning 5.30 to 7.00 pm night on road. But if you reach sightseeing place, we wont ride much. We just hangout the place

    Hi Udaya,

    I am a friend of Arun Theeban, I learnt about your breath taking solo bike ride from Bangalore to Bhuton through him.

    Many kudos to you. This is something extra-ordinary that many can’t think off, forget about accomplishing. “YOU HAVE DONE IT”. Great, May GOD bless you with many more such laurels. Though money and time is required, your energy levels and perseverance skills are amazing.

    Keep it up! Hope, I am someday able to join you in such thrilling expeditions.

    I am a friend of Arun Theeban. Kudos to you for taking this adventurous trip !!!

    Good luck for all such future trips.

    One suggestion: If this is accompanied by some social awareness message, it would also have been a trip for a good cause. you would have achieved both your personal wish and a very good cause as well . Just think about it for the next time.

    Whatever you have done is very great, that too just solo !!!

      Lakshminarayanan: Your correct. Even i am planning for Charity ride with cause. But frankly speaking, we need more local people contact to make this happen. Let me plan 🙂

      Dhritiman: Thats Good !! Its easy to ride Bangalore to Kolkata. You will be on beautiful high way, so no worry. Except road in Orisa. High way under construction in Orisa for 200 km. It will make you slow. other then this. Just ride 🙂

    I am sat in my house in Northern England on a wet miserable day, one day after Christmas.Reading the account of your epic journey is great, it certainly leaves me wanting to get the bike out and set of on another trip.
    You have shown that with patience, determination, and a certain amount of luck most rides are possible it just takes guts and a single minded determination.
    It is very easy to sit reading and think “if only” We have all got a great ride in us but few have the bottle to get of there butts and make the move. It all starts with the first twist of the throttle.
    Its a great read and you have uplifted my day thanks.
    Tarmac down. Head up.
